According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Detroit Lions quarterback Mathew Stafford is dealing with a hip injury and there’s a good chance that he doesn’t practice much this week, but still plays on Sunday.
“I would be surprised if he practiced Wednesday or Thursday, but ultimately, when the game rolls around, he’s a tough guy to count out. The injury looks to be more of a hip injury than anything else. There will be explanations of hamstrings and glutes this week — be very skeptical. It’s our understanding it’s more of a hip injury, and it’s a hip injury that’s serious enough to prevent him from finishing last Sunday’s game and to make him a question mark for this one. But knowing Stafford’s toughness, my sense is he’ll be out there. If he’s not, that tells you how bad the injury is,” wrote Schefter in his weekly mailbag.

Every year a team goes from in the playoffs to winning 5 games or fewer. The Lions, one of my preseason overrated teams, are a finalist for that spot, but I have them finishing a little bit better than that.
