  • The Lions weren’t good enough with Matthew Stafford and they’re probably doomed without him

Matthew Stafford was scratched with a back injury by the Detroit Lions before Sunday's game at Chicago, and the National Football League is looking into when the team knew its quarterback wouldn't be able to go against the Bears, according to multiple reports on Monday.

While the Lions said the quarterback was hurt in the Week 9 loss to the Oakland Raiders, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the issue involves fractured bones in Stafford's back, an injury that occurred last season.

But several players said the team disclosed on Saturday that Stafford wouldn't play.

It is common for the National Football League to investigate injury matters related to the official injury report and designations that might be viewed as suspicious.

Stafford was listed as questionable Friday after being limited in practice all week.

The official promised an investigation after an outcry from people who assailed enforcement of a no-food rule as racist. He could face a $250 fine or 48 hours of community service, a BART spokeswoman said.

"I truly believe this team goes out and fights every single day...there's probably progress that I see that I see is encouraging..." So the information that we got, talking with the doctors, it wasn't the right thing to do.

"We spent most of Saturday, trying to figure out a way for him to play safely", Patricia added. "So, I wanted to leave him that option, and therefore we would make it official on Sunday morning if he wanted to dress".

Jeff Driskel started at quarterback and said Sunday he learned only a few hours before kickoff that he would replace Stafford.

Stafford was in the midst of his best season as a pro, connecting on 64.9 percent of his passes for 2,499 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions through eight games.
