Lions | Stewart Could Be Out Six Weeks
The Associated Press reports Detroit Lions RB James Stewart could be out six weeks after dislocating his right shoulder in the Lions' pre-season finale against the Buffalo Bills. Stewart, the Lions' leading rusher in each of his three seasons with them, was hurt six minutes into Buffalo's 22-16 victory Thursday night. "There is no structural damage. It won't require surgery," Lions head coach Steve Mariucci said Friday, Aug. 29 after Stewart was examined. "It's a week-to-week sort of thing. It's hard to put a number of weeks on it because every dislocated shoulder is different. I would like to hope he'll be back by the bye week (Oct. 12, Week 6 of the NFL season)." Stewart attended Friday's practice and worked out on a stationary bike.
