NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Lions QB Matthew Stafford's ankle injury "doesn't appear too serious." The issue was enough to keep Stafford out for the rest of Saturday's loss to the Buccaneers, but it seems like he'll be available for the finale against the Vikings. Even in a meaningless contest, we'd bet on Stafford playing if he's able. We'll see how the practice week goes for him.

Lions QB Matt Stafford was knocked out of Saturday's game vs. the Bucs with an ankle injury. Now dealing with right thumb, rib and ankle injuries, Stafford should call it a season. QB Chase Daniel figures to start next weekend's finale vs. the Vikings.

Lions QB Matthew Stafford (rib, thumb) got in a limited practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Titans. Interim HC Darrell Bevell said that Stafford will travel to Tennessee, so the team clearly believes he has a chance to play. If Stafford can't go, Detroit would turn to QB Chase Daniel. He's a capable backup but would still be a downgrade for the Lions skill guys.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Lions QB Matthew Stafford as a rib-cartilage injury and that the team is "not overly optimistic" he'll play Sunday against the Titans. Detroit is reportedly still keeping open the "possibility" that Stafford toughs it out and plays, but you should plan as though he'll sit. We projected Chase Daniel as the starter in our Week 15 rankings.

Although he hasn't been ruled out for Week 15 yet, Lions QB Matthew Stafford is "in doubt" for Sunday's game at Tennessee, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Stafford was reportedly in an "unbelievable amount of pain" after the game. The QB had X-rays on his injured ribs, but the Lions have yet to announce an official diagnosis. We'll have to watch this situation as the week proceeds. Chase Daniel would start in Stafford's place if the QB can't go.

Lions QB Matt Stafford suffered a rib injury on a 4th-quarter scramble in Sunday's game against the Packers. QB Chase Daniel has replaced him. We'll update Stafford's status when we know more.

Lions QB Matt Stafford exited to get checked for a concussion in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Vikings. We'll update you on the result of that test as soon as we know. QB Chase Daniel has replaced Stafford.

Update: Stafford said after the game that he cleared concussion protocol. He should be fine for Week 10.

The Lions on Saturday activated QB Matthew Stafford from the COVID list. He'll reportedly need to pass 1 more round of testing to be cleared to play Sunday, but it sounds like the team expects that to work out. We'll, of course, see about Stafford's official status Sunday. If he winds up inactive, then Chase Daniel would start.

Lions QB Matt Stafford has been placed on the COVID list. It's unclear if he tested positive himself or was in close contact with someone who did. It's also unclear if Stafford has a chance to get cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Fantasy owners should be making other plans for now. If Stafford is out this weekend, Detroit would turn to either Chase Daniel or David Blough.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Monday that QB Mitchell Trubisky has been diagnosed with a right hip pointer. The injury reportedly occurred late in the 2nd quarter of Sunday night's loss to the Rams. Trubisky played the 3rd quarter and most of the 4th before getting yanked for QB Chase Daniel. “Every decision that was made, it had zero to do with his play," Nagy said. "It was completely based off his injury and where he was at.” A healthy Trubisky will remain Chicago's starter, but you should continue to stay away from this situation in fantasy football.

The Bears pulled QB Mitchell Trubisky out of Sunday night's game late in the 4th quarter. The team reported that Trubisky has a hip injury, but we didn't see the injury while watching the game. Trubisky also watched the final drive while pacing the sideline, as opposed to getting treatment or examination. Trubisky was 24 of 43 for 190 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT when he left. We'll see where this goes.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is out for this weekend’s game against the Raiders. He reportedly has a shot to return after the Week 6 bye. QB Chase Daniel gets the start on Sunday and is in the QB2 mix in the plus matchup.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky "doubtful" for Sunday's game against the Raiders in London with his left shoulder injury. The team hasn't provided any details on the injury, but former NFL head team Dr. David Chao believes Trubisky dislocated the shoulder and tore his labrum. Since it's the non-throwing shoulder, Chao believes Trubisky will end up missing just 1-2 weeks. Chicago has a Week 6 bye, so Trubisky might end up just missing 1 game. QB Chase Daniel figures to start vs. the Raiders this weekend.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Trubisky's shoulder is dislocated with a slight labrum tear. He's expected to travel to London with the team but likely won't play.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky suffered a left shoulder injury early in Sunday's game against the Vikings and has been ruled out. This looks like a serious injury. We'll pass along an update on Trubisky when we get one. QB Chase Daniel is in for Chicago.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Giants. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, giving him a shot to return for Week 14. QB Chase Daniel gets another start today but is a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game against the Giants. He put in a limited practice on Friday, giving him a shot to return for Week 14. QB Chase Daniel gets another start on Sunday but is a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Bears QB Chase Daniel is expected to start this weekend's game against the Giants. QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday, but the team "wants to play it safe" with him, according to Garafolo. Daniel played conservative football in Detroit on Thanksgiving, completing 27 of 37 passes for 230 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. In a tougher matchup in New York, he's just a low-end QB2 for Week 13.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. HC Matt Nagy reiterated that Trubisky's shoulder injury isn't a "long-term issue," but it's looking like he'll miss at least 1 more game.

The Eagles have released QB Chase Daniel. Signed to a 3-year, $21 million deal last offseason, Daniel attempted exactly 1 pass in his illustrious Philly career. He figures to land a backup job elsewhere relatively soon. The Eagles, meanwhile, brought back QB Nick Foles on a 2-year, $11 million deal to back up Carson Wentz.

According to ESPN’s Adam Caplan, the Eagles are planning to start Carson Wentz Week 1 if healthy. Wentz only appeared in the 1st preseason game due to a rib injury. Ready or not, the Eagles seem poised to let their 2nd overall pick play right away. Wentz should certainly be owned in 2-QB leagues.
