Matt Stafford injury update: How to handle Lions QB vs. Saints

Matthew Stafford is banged up heading into a potential shootout with the Saints. The Detroit Lions are listing Matthew Stafford as questionable to face the New Orleans Saints in Week 6.

Saints host Lions, trying to climb above .500

The New Orleans Saints, fresh from a week off and buoyed by consecutive victories over Carolina and Miami, are trying to sneak above .500 for the first time since the end of the 2013 season. The Detroit Lions have lost twice in the last three weeks to Atlanta and Carolina by a combined seven points. In a 27-24 home loss last week to the Panthers, the Lions lost their best defensive lineman, Haloti Ngata, possibly for the season with a first-half elbow injury, and watched quarterback Matthew Stafford limping badly in the fourth quarter with ankle and hamstring injuries as he almost sparked another late comeback.
