Stafford leaves with shoulder injury
Question of the Day
CHICAGO (AP) - Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford’s status for the next game is uncertain after he left the season opener against Chicago with a right shoulder injury following a blindside sack by the Bears’ Julius Peppers.
“I don’t know, we’ll see,” he said. “I will try, though.”
The Bears’ Matt Forte had just scored an 89-yard touchdown on a screen to pull Chicago within 14-10 when Stafford went down. He was hit in the shoulder by Peppers as he dropped back to pass and landed on it, the ball coming loose in the process.
Chicago’s Tommie Harris recovered, and the Bears took over on the 37 after a 15-yard penalty against Brian Urlacher with 15 seconds left. Robbie Gould ended the half with a 31-yard field goal, pulling Chicago within 14-13.
Lions cornerback Aaron Berry, who had an interception in the first half, left the game with a shoulder injury.
Bears linebackers Nick Roach (hamstring) and Hunter Hillenmeyer (illness) left the game.
