UPDATE: Stafford has been ruled out for the rest of Week 16. Chase Daniel will finish the game as the starter.

UPDATE: Matthew Stafford is officially questionable to return. It’s time for Chase Daniel who has one of the best stats in sports history, as he’s thrown for 1608 career yards and has made $37,277,217 in his career.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford hurt his ankle with a misstep avoiding pressure and is now going into the locker room. Chase Daniel will take over for the time being down 13-0 early on. This could get ugly fast.
