CHICAGO (WXYZ) — Detroit Lions Quarterback Matthew Stafford is one of the toughest players in the NFL, so much so that he has started in 136 straight games.

That's the second-longest active streak by a QB in the NFL behind Phillip Rivers.

That streak will now end as Stafford won’t start Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears due to a back injury.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Stafford fractured bones in his back and will keep him out this week and could be for the next three weeks.
