Lions' coach says Stafford can play despite finger problem

Matthew Stafford's toughness has never been something that's be scrutinized.

Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell says quarterback Matthew Stafford's finger injury should not prevent him from playing this weekend against the New York Giants.

Stafford finished Sunday's contest with tape on his injured finger and a glove on his throwing hand, but he still managed to lead the Lions to yet another comeback victory. "I let those guys know that it may not be pretty coming in there, but those guys made some great plays for me".

A problem with his grip in a cold-weather start Sunday in NY could lead the Lions to lose the two-game hold they have on the NFC North with three games left in the season.

Dexter Fowler to sign with Cardinals, heading to St. Louis for physical
That visual might be disorienting for Cubs fans who just watched what will probably be the best two seasons of Fowler's career. Fowler said negotiations with the Cardinals were easy with one notable exception.

They barely held on in this one. Two offensive line penalties in a row hurt the Bears however, and they had to settle for a field goal and a 3-0 lead.

"I think it'll be real sore, but I think he can throw with it". "Effort's not an area we're deficient in". The veteran quarterback is always finding ways to win.

Landry, a Lion from 1968-78 in a 15-year National Football League career that ended in 1984, expects pain management will be a more important element than the injury itself in how Stafford's performance might be affected.

Detroit's season hasn't just been exciting - it's been historic.

High court sides with Samsung in patent dispute with Apple
Samsung was initially hit with almost $1 billion in penalties for imitating Apple's design, but it was later cut by $382 million. In 2012 the jury's ruling upheld the patent infringement of the iPhone, with Apple receiving about 930 million euros in damages.

Only one of Detroit's games this season has been decided by more than seven points. The Detroit linebacker was active for the first time since Week 1, returning from a knee injury.

"I'm not going to talk to you about the nature of it, what happened, all the rumors and false reports", he added.

The Bears (3-10) were driving back the other way before the two holding calls left them facing first-and-30 from their own 37.

The Giants are flying high right now after their big win over the NFC-leading Cowboys, but their focus will soon shift to the conference's No. 2-ranked team, the Lions.
