Conflicting reports on Matthew Stafford's health heading into Week 10

Though it's been a rough stretch for Mitch Trubisky and the Bears Lions coach Matt Patricia isn't overlooking the Chicago quarterback Matthew Stafford may not start Sunday's game against the Bears

It's been a nice change from a 2018 campaign in which he played through a broken back and still never missed a start.

Detroit Lions Quarterback Matthew Stafford is one of the toughest players in the National Football League, so much so that he has started in 136 straight games.

First up is NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, who on Saturday afternoon tweeted out some doubt about Stafford's availability for the game at Soldier Field.

Lions QB Stafford out vs. Bears
On Saturday night before the Chicago game in Week 10, ESPN informed Stafford They told him not to play due to back injury. According to ESPN, he almost missed the Lions' home game against the Chiefs in Week 4 due to the pain in his back.

For the past few weeks, Stafford has been dealing with a back injury that has kept his name on the team's injury report every week.

The 31-year-old Stafford had been listed as questionable. Despite Stafford wanting to play, it is probably best that he avoids putting himself in harm's way on Sunday versus the Bears.

The Lions will now turn to Jeff Driskel as their starter with rookie David Blough serving as his backup.
