DETROIT -- Lions quarterback Daunte Culpepper had an MRI on his shoulder Monday, leading to doubt he will play next Sunday at the Indianapolis Colts.

Detroit coach Rod Marinelli said the team would wait for results of the exam before exploring other options for a starting quarterback.

After Culpepper was hurt Sunday, Drew Henson was sacked on the final play.

Dan Orlovsky hopes to be healthy enough to play this week after being out for a month with a wrist injury. Drew Stanton has been sidelined for two weeks with a concussion, but is expected to be ready to play, if necessary.

The Lions (0-13) will close at Indianapolis, against New Orleans and at Green Bay, hoping to avoid being the NFL's first 0-16 team.
