Lions' Matthew Stafford: Finger feeling fine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford said his finger, which was injured late last season, is now fine, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports. Stafford said of the situation, "It just needed rest. No surgery, no procedure, anything like that. It feels good, threw with it today. It feels fine. Been throwing with it for a month, month and a half, now. It just took some rest."

Stafford dislocated the middle finger in his throwing hand during Week 14's win over the Bears. He played the remainder of the season, including a Wild Card loss to the Seahawks, but looked significantly affected by the injury, throwing twice as many interceptions to touchdowns during the span. After taking some time off, the quarterback, who is entering the last year of his contract, should be ready for the beginning of OTAs.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Starts contract talks with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford (finger) is in the early stages of negotiating a contract extension with the Lions,'s Kevin Patra reports.

Stafford is entering the last season of the five-year, $76.5 million extension he signed back in 2013, so the Lions hope to lock him in on another long-term deal before preparations for the upcoming campaign intensify. Although it reportedly could be a few months before Stafford inks his contract, the fact that his representatives and the Lions have engaged recently signals the start of that process. With Jim Bob Cooter serving as his offensive coordinator for most of the past two seasons, Stafford has put together his two best campaigns in terms of completion percentage as well as two of his three best touchdown-to-interception ratios.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Skips Pro Bowl due to injured finger
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Stafford (finger) skipped the 2017 Pro Bowl in order to rest his injured middle finger, reports.

Stafford dislocated his right middle finger (on his throwing hand) in Week 14 against the Bears. While he finished out the regular season and also suited up for the Lions' lone playoff game in Seattle, Stafford missed the Pro Bowl because he opted for rest over surgery as a means to recover. However, it isn't clear how much rest his finger may require, or if his treatment plan will delay the start of his offseason preparation.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Stifled by Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Stafford completed 18 of 32 passes for 205 yards during the Lions' 26-6 postseason loss to the Seahawks on Saturday. He added 15 rushing yards across three carries.

While it isn't clear if his previously dislocated finger caused him any trouble, Stafford logged one of his worst performances of the season Saturday as his receivers did him no favors throughout the entire game. However, injured or not, taking on the Seahawks' vaunted defense is no easy task for any quarterback -- especially in the playoffs -- so it's easy to forgive the signal-caller's lack of impact on the box score. Now set to enter the offseason, Stafford will look to provide his injured finger with plenty of rest as the appendage won't require surgery to heal, according to Kyle Meinke of

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Tosses two TDs in loss to Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 26 of 41 passes for 347 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Packers.

Despite having himself a quiet night entering the fourth quarter, Stafford ultimately totaled more touchdowns than he had in his previous three games combined by connecting with Anquan Boldin on a desperation hail-mary heave in garbage time. Furthermore, the Lions signal caller also posted his highest completion percentage across his last four games. However, Detroit's failure to clinch the NFC North title Sunday night locked the team into a matchup against the Seahawks -- set to be played outdoors in Seattle -- for the first round of the playoffs, a team Stafford threw for just 203 yards with zero touchdowns against last season.
