Lions Back At Practice Monday

Last updated on Tuesday, August 25, 2009

(DETROIT, MI) - The Detroit Lions were back at practice Monday as they prepare for this weekend’s game with the Colts.

The main decision for new Lions Head Coach Jim Schwartz to sort out during this preseason is who will start at quarterback.

Detroit made former University of Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford the first overall pick in last April's NFL Draft.

Stafford had a rough outing Saturday as he started against the Browns, throwing an interception on the first play from scrimmage.

Stafford completed five of 13 passes for 34 yards.

Veteran Daunte Culpepper is the other quarterback competing for the starting job.

Culpepper went ten of 16 for 86 yards against Cleveland.

Stafford and Culpepper continued to split reps in practice on Monday.
