Lions' Stafford (back/hip) won't play vs. Bears

  • BREAKING: Lions QB Matthew Stafford Has Fractured Bones In Back, Will Not Play Against Bears

That's the second-longest active streak by a QB in the National Football League behind Phillip Rivers.

For the past few weeks, Stafford has been dealing with a back injury that has kept his name on the team's injury report every week. Stafford, Rivers, and Russell Wilson are the only three quarterbacks to have started over 100 straight games (Matt Ryan's streak of 154 ended in Week 9). Stafford suffered his injury when he took a high hit to the back against Oakland last week, but was able to practice all week anyway. He was limited all week, but publicly there did not seem to be concern.

"No, I'm fine. I'll be good to go", Stafford explained. However, he isn't anxious about it affecting him for this weekend's pivotal matchup against the Chicago Bears, and he expects to be good to go. "Something different (than the hip injury), but I'm totally good". He played anyway, but was visibly stiff and uncomfortable while doing so. When speaking to reporters on Wednesday, he said that this latest back injury isn't related to the one he dealt with last season and his hip issue wasn't linked to the one that found him questionable for Week 4.

Subban and Frederik Andersen stood tall through the first 40 minutes of the game as neither allowed a goal in two periods of play. Max Pacioretty: Pacioretty opened the scoring in the third period and gave Vegas the lead early in the final frame.

The 31-year-old Stafford has appeared in eight games and completed 64.3 percent of his passes for 2,499 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions.

But the Lions indeed are below.500, due mostly to a defense that is on a historic pace for futility - and now, as they get ready to face Khalil Mack and the Chicago Bears, they won't have Stafford either. Jeff Driskel, the former San Francisco 49ers draft pick who Detroit signed in mid-September, is expected to make the start against Chicago. He's never played in an National Football League game.
