Updated: Matthew Stafford, 5 other Detroit Lions miss Wednesday’s practice

UPDATE: Though Matthew Stafford was throwing while his teammates were stretching, he is not practicing on Wednesday.

On Sunday, Detroit Lions fans got a look at what the team would look like without Matthew Stafford at the quarterback position. Stafford, who reportedly has fractured bones in his back, was forced to miss the Lions Week 10 game against the Chicago Bears, a game the Lions ended up losing 20-13.

This coming Sunday, the Lions will look to bounce back when they take on the Dallas Cowboys at Ford Field.

On Wednesday, the Lions resumed practice and head coach Matt Patricia announced that five players would not be practicing.

As you can see, Patricia did not mention Stafford when naming the players who would not be at Wednesday’s practice.

It will be interesting to see how much Stafford does in today’s practice and ultimately if he plays this week against the Cowboys.

If Stafford is unable to go against the Cowboys, backup Jeff Driskel would likely get his second-straight start.
