Detroit Lions injury updates: Matthew Stafford x-rays negative, shouldn’t miss time

Detroit Lions fans held their breath as their quarterback, yet again, looked to be facing what could’ve been a serious injury. In the first quarter of his Week 10 game against the Washington Football Team, Matthew Stafford took a rough sack. When the drive was over, Stafford went to the sideline and got his throwing hand taped up around his thumb.

Stafford did not end up missing a snap from Sunday’s game, but in his postgame press conference, he certainly didn’t make it sound like the injury had just passed.
