Matthew Stafford Has Surgery For Shoulder Injury, Should Be OK For Camp

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford, whose promising career has been marred by three serious shoulder injuries in only two years, is expected to be "100 percent" for minicamp after undergoing a surgery on his throwing shoulder, mlive.com's Tom Kowalski reports.

My wife says "Dr. Derrick Shepherd," which is from a TV show. This is apparently the name of a character played by a Caucasian actor. That name does not immediately call to mind an individual of European heritage.
