CINCINNATI — Lions rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford says he'll think about sitting out a game or two so his sore left shoulder can heal.
Stafford aggravated his non-throwing shoulder in the closing minutes of a 23-13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Linebacker Dhani Jones drove him onto the shoulder after he threw a pass. Stafford left the game and sat on the bench the rest of the way.
The top pick in the draft originally hurt the shoulder during a win over Cleveland on Nov. 22. He'll have medical tests when he gets back to Detroit. Stafford says the injury is painful, and he'll consider resting it.
The Lions fell to 2-10 on Sunday. Their next game is at Baltimore.
CHIEFS RETIRE THOMAS' NUMBER: Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas had his number retired by the Kansas City Chiefs.
The nine-time Pro Bowler's No. 58 was retired at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday during halftime of the Chiefs' game against the Denver Broncos.
The Thomas family, his coach Marty Schottenheimer and several former teammates were there to see Thomas become the 10th Chiefs player to have his number retired. One of Thomas' daughters wept as she left the field after the ceremony.
Thomas is the franchise leader in sacks, including an NFL-record seven in one game. He died from injuries suffered in a car crash in 2000, not long after completing his 11th NFL season.
Thomas was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.
