Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford doesn’t sound overly concerned about the dislocated middle finger on his throwing hand.

Talking to reporters today, Stafford said he’s unsure if he’ll need to wear a glove for Sunday’s game against the Giants, but whether he does or doesn’t he thinks he’ll be the same player he’s been all year.

“I’m sure it will get better,” Stafford said of his finger. “Still working on it, figuring out what will be best come Sunday. . . . It’s never fun when it’s on your throwing hand but I’ll figure it out and we’ll go from there.”

There’s rain in the forecast in New Jersey on Sunday, but Stafford isn’t overly concerned about that.

“It’s going to be what it’s going to be. I’m not a weatherman. If we need to make an adjustment we’ll make an adjustment,” Stafford said.

Stafford said he plans to practice in full all week. The finger injury was the subject of almost all the questions Stafford faced from the media, but Stafford appears to have no question that he can play through it.
