Stafford’s consecutive games streak ends due to fractured back

Stafford week-to-week | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Stafford, 31, has been on the injury report since Week 4 with a hip issue, but he had only been limited in one practice - back on September 27 - until this week, when the back injury also popped up.

Below is everything you need to know about Stafford's injury, including a chronology of your injury updates and when Lions could return you to the lineup. Backup Jeff Driskel will start in his place.

Stafford's starting streak was the second-longest active streak - Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has started 218 straight - and the sixth-longest of all-time by a quarterback, dating back to January 2, 2011.

Stafford, who has three seasons left on his current contract beyond 2019, had not missed a start for the Lions since 2010.

Florida State fired former coach Willie Taggart Sunday after a 27-10 loss to state rival Miami on Saturday in Tallahassee, Fla. His No. 2 jersey is retired by the Seminoles, and he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011.

In a odd way, then, the absence of Stafford arguably only increases the pressure on the desperate Bears and their embattled passer Mitch Trubisky.

"I'll be ready to go", Stafford said Wednesday. "Something different, but I'm totally fine".

Most agree the now watered down Pro Bowl is a poor litmus test for successful players, but Stafford could be heading for the game and potentially for an All-Pro nod as well if he keeps up his huge play so far this season.

November 6: Stafford tells reporters he's "fine" and will be "good to go" against the Bears despite pain in his back. On Sunday morning, multiple reports indicated that Stafford would be inactive in Chicago. ESPN reports the injury could keep Stafford on the sideline anywhere between one and three weeks.
