Lions rule out Matthew Stafford against Cowboys

Allen Park — If it wasn't clear already, the Detroit Lions officially ruled out quarterback Matthew Stafford for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Asked if there was any scenario he could see Stafford suit up, Lions coach Matt Patricia said, "Not this Sunday."

Without going into specifics, Patricia said Stafford remains on a medical plan and progressing well.

"I'm not going to go into the details of that," Patricia said. "There are different things our doctors are doing, that everybody is doing, to hit those markers.

"He's going great," Patricia continued. "He's fine, grinding away, studying, getting ready to go, helping everybody around him and preparing, which is great.
