Lions' Matthew Stafford: Still not practicing

Stafford (back/hip) didn't practice Wednesday.

Stafford hasn't practiced in any capacity over the last four weeks while contending with fractured bones in his back and is being labeled as week-to-week. The veteran signal-caller is keeping the door open on a potential late-season return, but his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Vikings are looking slim at best. With Jeff Driskel (hamstring) now on injured reserve, the Lions will roll with David Blough under center as long as Stafford is unable to go. Kyle Sloter will serve as the team's backup.
