10 November 2019

His streak of 136 consecutive starts in the regular season was the sixth-longest for a QB in National Football League history. An insider also noted the injury could keep Stafford out for "this week or 3 weeks". So it's a bit concerning to see the Lions ironman QB listed as questionable for the team's Week 10 game in Chicago. Despite Stafford wanting to play, it is probably best that he avoids putting himself in harm's way on Sunday versus the Bears.
