Last Sunday, Matthew Stafford suffered yet another injury when he sprained his ankle in the first quarter of the Detroit Lions matchup vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The injury caused him to miss the remainder of the game and when listening to Lions’ head coach Darrell Bevell speak on Tuesday, it sounds like it is a 50-50 chance that Stafford is able to play in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings.
While speaking to reporters this morning, Bevell revealed that if Stafford is unable to go, Chase Daniel will get the nod as the starting quarterback.

In four games this season, Daniel has completed 67.4% of his passes for 264 yards and one touchdown to go along with 2 interceptions.
Nation, who should start if Stafford is out? Chase Daniel or David Blough?
