Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears with fractured bones in his back. Stafford started a team-record 136 consecutive regular-season games, which until the missed game this Sunday was the 2nd-longest active start streak in the NFL, just behind Philip Rivers. Stafford also held the 6th-longest all-time start streak behind Brett Favre, Rivers, Eli Manning, Peyton Manning and Matt Ryan. The next closest was Joe Flacco with 122 consecutive starts.
Before Sunday’s game, Lions general manager Bob Quinn made a brief statement about Stafford but declined additional questions. Stafford practiced on Friday, but doctors wanted him to undergo additional testing on the back. Jeff Driskel, who started five games for the Cincinnati Bengals last season, made his sixth career start Sunday in place of Stafford. As of press time, Stafford’s injury is considered week-to-week.
