The most famous pair of gloves in Detroit are no more.
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford ditched the throwing gloves for Tuesday’s practice.
“He didn’t have glove on?” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said with a smile when asked about it after practice. “I didn’t notice.”
Stafford has been wearing the gloves since fracturing the index finger on his throwing hand Oct. 30 against the Broncos.
He’s worn the gloves to better grip the football while wearing a splint on the finger.
Stafford was throwing the ball with zing without the gloves during the portion of practice open to the media on Tuesday. He wasn’t wearing the splint, either.
Over the last three games, Stafford has thrown seven touchdowns and nine interceptions and the Lions are 1-2 over that span.
He had 19 touchdown and four interceptions before the gloves went on Nov. 13 against the Bears.
