Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was hoping to play through the pain of back and shoulder injuries in Detroit's Week 10 game against the Chicago Bears, but the game time decision has been made.

It's unclear how Stafford incurred the injury, though he did take a hard shot against the Raiders in a last-second loss last Sunday. Yes, he was limited, but multiple people close to the situation said the concern level was low. However, he isn't anxious about it affecting him for this weekend's pivotal matchup against the Chicago Bears, and he expects to be good to go.

"I'm fine", Stafford said, via the Detroit Free Press. "Something different, but I'm totally good". Now, at least for one game, they'll be without him. He played anyway, but was visibly stiff and uncomfortable while doing so.

In eight games this season, the 31-year-old has thrown for 2499 yards, and 19 touchdowns.

If the Lions weren't 3-4-1, Stafford would be in the race for Most Valuable Player.

Jeff Driskel, signed on September 17, is expected to get the start in Chicago.

David Blough, acquired in a trade with Cleveland after the preseason finale, will be the backup.
