Following the game, he was taken to the locker room for X-rays, but no definitive diagnosis has been revealed regarding the extent of his injury.
If Stafford misses the remainder of the season, he could theoretically have played his last down wearing a Lions uniform.
For as much as Stafford has sacrificed to play the game he loves, there are no guarantees the next regime will want the veteran quarterback on the roster in 2021.
“I mean, listen, he is honestly one of the toughest guys and competitors that I’ve ever been on a team with. It’s very well-written about. The dude’s a warrior," Daniel said Sunday. "He’s hurting right now, but I think he’s going to work whatever he’s got through it and try and be out there for the team.”
Stafford, a 12th-year veteran, turns 33 in February, and the organization is headed toward a rebuild, following another disappointing season of not making the playoffs.
Do you think Stafford plays another down for the Lions, or was Sunday's game the final appearance he makes donning the Honolulu Blue?
