Lions' Stafford will wear slightly different glove vs. Cowboys

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford warms up wearing a single-finger glove due to the injury on his right hand before Detroit takes on the New York Giants.

Allen Park – You won’t be able to tell the difference looking at it, but Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will be wearing a slightly different glove this week when the team takes on the Dallas Cowboys.

The new glove will still cover just his injured middle finger, but the material will be different, designed for an indoor game as opposed to last week’s inclement conditions.

“That middle finger will probably be covered up for you guys, but other than that, it will be very similar to what I wore last week,” Stafford said. “The one I was wearing last was in preparation for rain.”

After reviewing the film of his performance against the Giants, Stafford was comfortable with the way he was able to throw with the glove and expects to be even more proficient this week.

“I think I’m going to continue to get more and more comfortable as I work on it, work through,” he said. “As far as velocity and accuracy, all that kind of stuff, I wasn’t perfect, but I felt like I was playing at a high level.”

Stafford finished the game 24-of-39 for 273 yards. He was kept out of the end zone and did throw an interception late in the fourth quarter.
