DETROIT (WXYZ) — Matthew Stafford will miss his fourth straight start on Thursday afternoon when the Lions take on the Bears on Thanksgiving.

Jeff Driskel, who is expected to start for Stafford, is also listed as questionable on the team's injury report due to hamstring issues.

Driskel was still "pretty sore" but "getting better," according to the Detroit Free Press.

He has 685 yards and four touchdowns with four interceptions in three straight starts for Detroit.

If Drisekl doesn't play, David Blough is the only quarterback left able to play on the roster. The rookie from Purdue hasn't played this season.

The Lions take on the Bears at 12:30 p.m. Thursday at Ford Field.
