Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford probably won’t be on the field this weekend against the Cowboys.

According to Adam Schefter, the star gunslinger sat out practice on Thursday, which is a good indication Jeff Driskel will be starting against Dallas. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I might as well just keep this clip from “The Office” on repeat because it pretty much sums up the situation perfectly.

We are screwed!

I had so much hope going into this season. I looked at our roster, and I thought we had potential to do big things.

Now, the face of the franchise isn’t even able to play due to a fractured back. Don’t get me wrong here. I’m certainly not blaming him at all.

If Stafford’s back is messed up, then he shouldn’t even think about stepping a foot onto the field. A fractured back is certainly something you don’t want to mess with.

Let’s all hope he gets better very soon. Outside of the football aspect, having a fractured back must just suck on a terrible level.

Once he’s ready, then we’ll ride with him as our quarterback again. Until then, we’re probably not going to do too much winning.
