The Detroit News
Matthew Stafford, with his middle finger wrapped, speaks in the postgame news conference on Sunday.

Star quarterback Matthew Stafford reportedly suffered a dislocation and torn ligaments in his middle finger on his right hand during the Detroit Lions’ win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday at Ford Field.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter, attributing his information to league sources, said Stafford will be able to play the rest of the season with a glove covering his throwing hand.

Stafford was hurt on the second Lions’ possession. On a pass attempt, Stafford smashed his hand on the outstretched arms of oncoming rusher Leonard Floyd.

Stafford returned on the next series, and finished the game with a glove on his right hand.

He finished 21-of-35 passing for 223 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions.
