The Detroit Lions will be looking to build off last Sunday’s last-second victory over Washington when they meet the 3-7 Carolina Panthers this weekend.
Both teams are dealing with their share of injuries, with both starting quarterbacks currently on the mend.
Speaking of quarterbacks, Panthers head coach Matt Rhule had nothing but good things to say about Matthew Stafford. While speaking with media members, Rhule stated that be believes Stafford and Teddy Bridgewater have plenty in common.
“You take veteran guys like Stafford and Bridgewater, especially on Wednesday when they’re limited, first and second down, they probably know so much of it they can sit back and not take full reps and still be dead on with the game plan,” Rhule said. “They’ve had so many reps over the years that they’re ready to go. So I love watching Stafford play. He’s dynamic, he’s a competitor, and I feel the same way about Teddy. So I think it’ll be awesome to see both those guys out there.”
Bridgewater’s status for Sunday hasn’t been yet confirmed, as he reportedly suffered a sprained MCL and has been a limited participant in practice this week.
