One report mentioned that Stafford was specifically dealing with ankle and hamstring injuries.
Stafford managed to labor through the fourth quarter of last week’s game against Carolina, but he played really well, especially considering that he was dealing with multiple injuries.
Stafford, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Lions back in 2009. He was in the final year of his five-year, $76.5 million contract when he and the Lions agreed to a record-setting five-year, $135 million extension this offseason.
In 2017, Stafford has appeared in five games for the Lions and thrown for 1,116 yards while completing 64.2 percent of his passes to go along with nine touchdowns and one interception.
