Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had an MRI on his right leg Monday but coach Jim Schwartz said he would wait until Friday before making a determination about Stafford's status for Week 4. Schwartz would not comment about the results of the MRI, taken a day after Stafford left Sunday's overtime loss to the Tennessee Titans in the fourth quarter. Stafford said (via The Detroit Free Press) after the game that he had aggravated an injury suffered during practice earlier in the week. Shaun Hill finished the game in place of Stafford.
Fantasy Impact: Stafford threw for 278 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game, but hasn't been the same quarterback that threw for more than 5,000 yards last season. It's frustrating for fantasy owners when coaches wait until late in the week but it sounds like that is what's going to happen. The Lions are already 1-2 and will want him out there against Minnesota on Sunday.
