Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has not missed a snap since partially tearing ligaments in his right thumb on Nov. 15 against Washington. There is no reason to believe he won’t play every snap Sunday against Chicago.
But Stafford remains on the Lions’ practice report. He was limited Wednesday.
Rookie running back D'Andre Swift, who has missed the past two games with a concussion, remained limited. He returned to practice on a limited basis last week.
Earlier in the day, interim coach Darrell Bevell expressed optimism Swift can return this week. But an independent neurologist still must clear Swift.
