 ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -Detroit Lions quarterback Drew Stanton bruised his right thumb in practice Thursday, but the backup hopes to play in the team's third exhibition game.
Stanton said his throwing hand hit the back of a teammate's shoulder pads, and X-rays of the thumb showed it wasn't a major injury. His right hand was packed with ice after practice.
The former Michigan State star completed 7 of 8 passes for 85 yards and a touchdown in the first two exhibition games and ran eight times for 46 yards and a score. Stanton is competing with Dan Orlovsky to be the No. 2 quarterback behind Jon Kitna.
Detroit hosts the Cleveland Browns on Saturday.
