On Wednesday, the Detroit Lions released their initial Week 10 Injury Report and though it was no surprise to see Matthew Stafford’s name, as he has been dealing with a hip issue, it was a surprise to see that he is also nursing his back.
Stafford told reporters that the back injury is “something different” than what he was dealing with earlier this year and that it is not related to the back injury he suffered last season.

Stafford was limited in practice on Wednesday but he does not seem to be in any jeopardy of missing this coming Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.
