  • Stafford (right thumb) was a limited participant in Tuesday's walkthrough practice, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. There hasn't been any indication that Stafford is in danger of missing Thursday's game against the Texans, but his reps likely will remain limited all week. The 32-year-old played through the partial ligament tear in his right thumb last week against the Panthers and completed just 55 percent of his passes for 178 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. While his performance was clearly hindered, he draws a favorable Week 12 matchup, as the Texans have allowed 7.8 yards per pass attempt this year (sixth-most in the league).

  • Stafford (thumb) was a limited participant on Monday's practice estimate, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Stafford played through a partial ligament tear in his right thumb during Sunday's loss to the Panthers. His performance clearly was hindered, as he completed just 18 of 33 passes (55 percent) for 178 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. While it was a dismal performance, there haven't been any reported setbacks to Stafford's injury. At this time, he should be ready to start in the Thanksgiving Day clash against the Texans.

  • Stafford completed 18 of 33 passes for 178 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions during Sunday's 20-0 loss to Carolina. He also rushed four times for five yards. Toughing out a thumb injury and playing without D'Andre Swift (concussion), Kenny Golladay (hip) and Danny Amendola (hip), Stafford was unable to take advantage of an inviting matchup against a sliding Panthers defense. While his numbers would have looked better had a 51-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Jones not been flagged for an illegal offensive formation, Stafford clearly seemed to be affected by his injury, and, given the offense's subsequent struggles moving the ball, it wouldn't be a surprise if Detroit gives Stafford time to heal in the coming weeks. If not, Stafford at least will have an even better matchup in Week 12 against a Texans defense that is allowing the sixth-most yards per pass attempt (7.8) in 2020.

  • Stafford (thumb) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Stafford was never cleared for full participation in practice at any point this week after he sustained a torn ligament to his right thumb in the Week 10 win over Washington. That said, the Lions became increasingly optimistic about Stafford's health as the week rolled along, with multiple reports coming through indicating he was able to throw the football without any major discomfort during practices Thursday and Friday. According to Kyle Meinke of MLive.com, Stafford was still donning a protective wrap on his thumb while he worked out early Sunday, but he once again appeared to be throwing without any issues. Rather than the thumb injury, the greater concern for Stafford this week is probably his dearth of weapons in the passing game; starting wideouts Kenny Golladay (hip) and Danny Amendola (hip) and top running back D'Andre Swift (concussion) are all inactive for the contest.

  • Stafford (thumb), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, is expected to start at quarterback, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan said Friday the 32-year-old should be able to play with no limitations, and it appears he's avoided any setbacks halfway through the weekend. Stafford appears intent on playing through the ligament injury to his right thumb, but he'll also have to contend with the absences of the offense's top running back D'Andre Swift (concussion) and wideouts Kenny Golladay (hip) and Danny Amendola (hip) in Carolina.
