Matt Stafford gets X-rays on hand - [Full Article]

Another game against the Minnesota Vikings, another trip to the X-ray room for Matthew Stafford.

The Detroit Lions quarterback injured his left hand in Sunday's 28-19 loss against Minnesota, and was forced to finish the game with a glove. He underwent X-rays a few minutes after the game.

Although he didn't have the results, he's optimistic he's OK heading into next week's game against the Kansas City Chiefs in London.

"I think it's fine," Stafford said. "We'll see."

Stafford also underwent X-rays on his ribs after the first game against Minnesota, a 26-16 loss back in Week 2. He took eight hits in that game, was sacked once and took two more blows while trying to get out of bounds.

Fantasy Impact: 

Stafford says he's fine and he played through it but owners should pay attention to this situation leading up to Week 8.
