During the first drive, Stafford dropped back for a pass and once the ball left his hand, he drifted backward but didn’t see a Tampa Buccaneers linebacker behind him. Their feet got tangled up and Stafford twisted his ankle.
Stafford was tended to on the sidelines by trainers, but was unable to put any weight on his ankle and limped on one leg to the locker room.
The Lions announced that he is questionable to return at this time.
He was replaced by Chase Daniel on the second drive, but after five plays he was sacked and they were forced to punt.
The Bucs will get the ball for their third drive, after scoring two touchdowns on both their drives so far, and lead the game 13-0.
