Lions QB Stafford hurts leg in loss to Falcons
Question of the Day
Matthew Stafford insisted he would’ve tried to keep playing.
A limping quarterback is still cause for concern for the Detroit Lions.
Another player fell on Stafford’s right leg during Detroit’s last play of a 23-16 loss Sunday to the Atlanta Falcons. He was going to have his knee and ankle checked out.
Stafford said he would have attempted to stay in the game if the Lions had regained possession, but Atlanta was able to run out the clock.
Stafford played in only three games last season because of shoulder problems.
“I’m moving around OK right now, so we’ll see,” Stafford said.
Hightower hurt his left knee when it buckled during a 4-yard carry in the third quarter. He was helped off the field while putting almost no weight on the leg, then carted to the locker room from the sideline. Shanahan said the severity of the injury was unclear.
Houston safety Danieal Manning is hoping he’ll be out only a few weeks after hurting his left leg in Houston’s win over Tennessee.
Manning leaped into the air to pick off a pass from Matt Hasselbeck in the second quarter, and he limped to the sideline before being carted to the locker room. Team officials said Manning hurt his lower left leg, and he was on crutches on the sideline in the second half.
Manning told a Houston radio station he broke his tibia but needed more X-rays and an MRI to know the extent of the damage.
Rams right tackle Jason Smith and backup defensive tackle Darell Scott were each carted off in their loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Smith was accidentally kicked in the head during the first quarter. After a long delay to treat him, he was seen moving his limbs before being placed on a backboard. He was taken to the hospital for observation with a strained neck.
Smith had run over to the sideline to try to tackle Dallas safety Abram Elam after he caused a fumble and was returning it. Smith went for the tackle and Elam’s leg whacked Smith across his helmet while Elam was running. Cameras showed him waving and putting his hands together as if in prayer while being driven out.
