Matthew Stafford won't play vs. Bears because of fractured bones in back

The Detroit Lions quarterback was declared inactive for today's game against the Chicago Bears because of a back injury. The next closest was Joe Flacco with 122 consecutive starts.

When speaking to reporters on Wednesday, he said that this latest back injury isn't related to the one he dealt with last season and his hip issue wasn't linked to the one that found him questionable for Week 4.

As a rookie, Stafford missed six games with knee and shoulder injuries, and in 2010 he separated his throwing shoulder twice and eventually required surgery, missing 13 games. "I just want to be out there for the guys". He has battled through so much, so much more than anyone knows.

Before Sunday's game, Lions general manager Bob Quinn made a brief statement about Stafford but declined additional questions, according to ESPN.

According to NBC5, she had grabbed a handgun from her purse after hearing a noise in her backyard and went towards a window. Marquis Jefferson suffered a cardiac arrest and was taken to the hospital Friday night, November 8, Carter said.

Stafford has fractured bones in his back, and doctors did not let him play, a source told ESPN.

"We deactivated him this morning", Quinn said. He had been listed as questionable on the injury report and was practicing through the week while hoping to play through the pain. Before his injury, Stafford was maintaining career-highs in passer rating (106.0) and QBR (73.1) this season. It broke a streak of 136 straight starts for him dating back to the start of the 2012 season.

The next morning, Stafford evidently gave in to doctors' suggestions to get further testing done on his back.

ESPN reported Stafford's injury would keep him sidelined up to three weeks, though he was being considered week-to-week.
