Matthew Stafford pops up on injury report, questionable for Sunday

The Lions made an addition to their injury report on Friday and it could wind up having a pretty big impact on Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford was a limited participant in Friday’s practice because of a hip issue and he’s been listed as questionable to play against Kansas City. Stafford has not missed a game since the 2010 season and carries a streak of 131 straight starts into the weekend.

Undrafted rookie David Blough and the recently signed Jeff Driskel are the other quarterbacks on the roster in Detroit.

Prior to Stafford’s injury, the biggest names on the Lions injury report were defensive tackle Mike Daniels, wide receiver Danny Amendola and cornerback Darius Slay. Daniels is out with a foot injury while Amendola (chest) and Slay (hamstring) join defensive lineman Da'shawn Hand (elbow) and Stafford with questionable tags.

  1. Can we stop crowning the Chiefs and Mahomes? They have won nothing. Patricia will slow them down, much like laying the blue print to stop Goff last year.

  2. This is more about ok the hip is sore he’s been getting some treatment let’s list him so some whistle blower doesn’t go public and have the league fine us for not disclosing it. Patricia is not naive enough to think this messes with the Chiefs. Staff daddy plays through injuries all the time. Nothing to see here.

  3. I saw Stafford throw a TD with a broken shoulder. He also played most of last season with a broken back.

    I’m pretty sure you could jump start Matthew’s corpse at his funeral and he could throw for 250 and 2 TDs that afternoon.

  4. I understand Stafford doesn’t miss games but an injury could happen at any time. It’s personnel malpractice to have an undrafted rookie as your backup QB.

  5. I’m a salty fan of a garbage team. Stafford sucks and so do the Lions and I know it.

    I find this funny coming from a delusional Bear fan, whose team is in last place. Who’s team could use a good QB like Stafford unlike the bust they drafted, who will be lucky to be the game manager Trent Dilfer was. Who also steals folks usernames.

  7. Stafford is a turnover machine, regardless of false claims that he is “tough.” He will always fail the team in a critical game by fumbling or throwing a ridiculous side arm INT.

    The Lions will be lucky to go 1-5 the next six games, their cupcake schedule is over.

    Either you know nothing about football or you are just trolling. I honestly don’t know which one it is because of the ridiculousness of that statement.

  9. That statement from Mike Shereck is pretty spot on. You millennials need to learn how to accept that things don’t always go your way. Just because you believe something in your der@nged millennial head doesn’t mean it’s true lil fella. Time to grow up and get a big boy job. His statement is actually very accurate and you’re just in denial about reality.

    Go Chiefs!

  10. Might as well rest some people if you’re Detroit. KC is going to light it up by at least 21. Look for more 17 over the top and 31 grinding it out…

  11. Doesn’t matter if Stafford plays or not unless he switches to defense. PM15 is going to hang 40 plus on the Lions and I even think Matt Patricia’s done a good job with their defense.

    —————————————————–

    Stafford has never won a division title. Has a losing record as a starter and only has a handful of wins against teams with a winning record but go ahead and flatter yourself by calling him a good QB. Might as well rest Stafford not that him playing will make any difference in this game.

  13. “Stafford is a turnover machine, regardless of false claims that he is “tough.” He will always fail the team in a critical game by fumbling or throwing a ridiculous side arm INT.”

    You do realize Stafford has the record of most comeback wins by any current NFL QB.

  14. What’s this a bitter Lions fan upset that people are calling out his overrated QB that hasn’t don’t anything in the decade he’s been on the Lions?

    Stafford was in the playoffs a couple times and choked BIG TIME. He turned the ball over multiple times in the 4th quarter on separate occasions. Then fans like this clown turned to blaming the refs for the loss. Let’s be real here and go on with this ridiculous “most comeback wins” non-sense. Comeback wins amounted to what exactly, a 6-10 season for the Lions? Give it rest Stafford isn’t the worst or the best QB, he’s average.

    Even Jay Cutler has a couple playoff wins and Stafford doesn’t. No one can say Stafford is worse than Cutler so if that doesn’t put it in perspective for ya just wait the Lions are about to go a huge losing streak in the coming weeks.

  16. What’s this – Someone continuing to go on and on and write a book about how bad he/she hates Stafford. If I had to guess he probably beat your team which is why you’re so bitter.

    Let’s be real here (and I will be very real), Stafford is a great QB with crazy skills. He’s tough, smart, can read defenses like a book and is a great leader. The 6-10 record you talk about was last season because of massive injuries to the roster and Stafford played most of the season with a broken back. Be real.

    Sure, the Lions overall as a team haven’t been good enough, but they’re doing well so far and give their QB some credit. He’s carried this team on his back ever since he’s been there.

    Don’t be a hater.

  17. Hater? You like to call the kettle a pot much? How much time in a day do you spend on here changing your name and re-liking your own posts?

    Right I see, but it’s ok for you to constantly boast about a team that hasn’t won anything in 60 years nor a guy that is just an average QB. Stafford has done nothing since being drafted and he’s an average QB that turns over the ball a lot. That’s not being a hater, that’s the facts.

    You call out trolls yet you sit on Trubisky articles with 50 different names about trolling a young QB that swept your Lions. And you have the nerve to say “don’t be a hater.”

    Sure there pal. Try again kid, you’re Lions haven’t been competitive for the life span of an average human being. Bears are division champs and will sweep the Lions again this year. November is right around the corner after your 4-5 game losing streak starts tomorrow!
