Lions QB Matthew Stafford missed practice again Thursday with fractures in his back.
Stafford is likely headed toward missing another game in Week 11 with the injury. The Lions offense wasn’t as sharp, as expected, with Jeff Driskel at quarterback, who would get another start if Stafford cannot go. Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay would continue to be boom or bust plays with Driskel in. With the way Stafford had been battling throughout his career, this is obviously a tough injury for him. You start to wonder if the Lions will put the idea of shutting him down in the back of their heads, sitting at 3-5-1 and facing a tough game against the Cowboys in Week 11.
