Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford surprisingly showed up on the injury report Friday with a hip injury and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs.

A source told ESPN’s Dan Graziano that Stafford’s issue is actually with his back; he has had problems with it in the past and it flared up again this week. The feeling is that Stafford likely will play Sunday, the source said, but the Lions plan to continue to monitor and examine him more over the weekend. (READ MORE) by Michael Rothstein | ESPN
