Lions Express Confidence In Drew Stanton, Not Looking At Other QBs


Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz said today that Drew Stanton will start at quarterback Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

“Drew’s a guy that — there’s a reason we’ve kept him around, and you only keep a guy around if you have confidence to put him in a game,” Schwartz said. “His role has been third quarterback, and now it’s time for him to be able to answer that and be able to go. He needs to lead this team; he needs to play well for us. The guys around him need to play well for the quarterback.”

Stanton becomes the Lions’ third starting quarterback this year, replacing Shaun Hill, who is out indefinitely with a broken right index finger.
