10/25/15 - QB Matthew Stafford had an X-ray on his left hand after he was injured in the second half. Stafford was confident there was no break in his non-throwing hand and said it didn't appreciably affect his ability to pass. "Not too much," he said. "I mean, it's my left hand." Stafford, who threw for over 400 yards against Chicago the previous Sunday, passed for 256 yards.
10/15/15 - QB Matthew Stafford won his appeal against the NFL over a $5,787 fine for wearing all-blue cleats in Week 4 against the Seahawks. He presented his case Tuesday to Merton Hanks, the league's vice president of football operations. "I understood, and I will move on with a new pair of cleats," Stafford said.
09/28/15 - QB Matthew Stafford's fumble in the fourth quarter was a pivotal play as the Lions had already crossed into Denver territory and still trailed by one score, 14-6. Stafford and coach Jim Caldwell thought his arm was going forward on the play, but the NFL agreed with the officials that his hand was not, making it a fumble instead of an incomplete pass.
"When Matthew Stafford lost the football, his hand was moving in a downward direction, coming back toward his body," the league said in a statement. "That is why the play was ruled a fumble and confirmed as a fumble, as all turnovers are automatically reviewed. Prior to the removal of the tuck rule, this would have been considered an incomplete pass."
