Matthew Stafford Injury News: Fractured Finger, Swirling Winds Lead To Inaccurate Passes

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford reportedly played Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears with a fractured index finger on his right throwing hand. If you combine that with the 30+ mph swirling winds at Soldier Field, it should not be surprising that he only completed 33 of his 63 pass attempts. Add in four interceptions and it was not a good day for Matthew Stafford.

The question is how much of the inaccuracy was due to the wind and how much was due to the finger. Stafford and the Lions face the Carolina Panthers next week and it provides a solid matchup if Stafford can improve his accuracy. I think for fantasy purposes, you have to stick with Stafford pending updates this week. Carolina did fairly well in containing Matt Hasselbeck, but they have a defense that quality quarterbacks can blow up. If Stafford brings his A-game, he is one such quarterback.

Matthew Stafford Status Update: Lions QB Ready To Go

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is healthy enough to start to this week, as was expected heading into the week. He leads his team in a must-win division battle against the Chicago Bears. An ankle injury had been bothering Stafford last week. He did not participate in the Lions' bye week workout. 

Stafford has thrown for 2,179 yards through eight games this season. He has 19 touchdowns and just four interceptions to go with a 61 percent completion rate. Calvin Johnson has 11 of those touchdowns. In short, he looks every bit like the first-overall pick that is at the center of a rebuilding Detroit Lions team. 

Stafford is ranked seventh among quarterbacks for week 10 in the NFL, according to Fake Teams, SB Nation's fantasy sports site.

Devin Hester Questionable With Ankle Injury

Chicago Bears wide receiver and return specialist Devin Hester is "Questionable" for Sunday afternoon's game against the Detroit Lions with an ankle injury.

Hester injured the ankle during Monday night's 30-24 win over the Philadelphia Eagles and was held out of practice all week. Bears head coach Lovie Smith was hopeful he'd have Hester for the key NFC North match-up, but following Friday's practice, Smith sounded like a coach who was not expecting to have the dynamic weapon in his arsenal.

'We're confident (without Hester),'' Smith said via Mark Potash of the Chicago Sun-Times. ''You're right -- there's only one Devin Hester. No one has anyone like him. So without him there, we'll just have another very good returner to replace him. We have other guys on our roster who have scored touchdowns in NFL games. So we should be OK.''

Without Hester, Johnny Knox is expected to handle both kick and punt returns.
