Matthew Stafford out against Bears with broken back bones

Matthew Stafford out against Bears with broken back bones

Matthew Stafford was listed as questionable for the Detroit Lions, but his status seems to be determined already.

Unfortunately, the injury seems to be getting worse and Detroit's team doctors are advising Stafford to sit out.

His streak of 136 consecutive starts in the regular season was the sixth-longest for a QB in National Football League history.

Meinke also added that Stafford's current maladies are not related to his prior injuries.

That streak may be in doubt Sunday against the Chicago Bears as Stafford deals with a back injury.

Stafford, who has started 136 consecutive games, has thrown for 2,499 yards this season with 19 touchdowns and five interceptions.

The Lions will now turn to Jeff Driskel as their starter with rookie David Blough serving as his backup.
