The Lions hope to find out the status of Matthew Stafford on Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford left Week 3's game against the Tennessee Titans late in the fourth quarter with an apparent leg injury. He is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday to determine how severe the nature of his injury really is.

Fantasy Impact: Stafford told Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press he suffered an injury to his hamstring or glut at practice this week, and was sitting on a heating pad during the Titans game to keep it loose. He is certainly no stranger to injuries, but fantasy owners are hopeful he will not miss any action after he played all of 2011. The extent of this ailment should be known by Monday afternoon, so be sure to check back for the latest news on Stafford.
