Mike O'Hara says Matthew Stafford played with broken back in 2018

O'Hara: "He is durable, but he does play with injuries. Broken bones in his back", Lions reporter Mike Hara said during an episode of his podcast when explaining Stafford's health last season, according to on Tuesday. But according to a writer for the team's official website, he played at least a few of those games a year ago with broken bones in his back.

Asked by Brown if he was supposed to say that, O'Hara says, "it's been reported".

O'Hara's report was confirmed by NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, who provided more context on the situation. Not many, especially when you take into account the fact Stafford has had previous injuries.

Biden, though, has faced criticism among Democratic rivals for his embrace of high-rolling donors and top-dollar fundraisers. And according to the Republican National Committee, he received almost $25 million in contributions in less than a day.

Stafford also left the Lions' Week 1 game against the Jets after taking two brutal hits to the chest, but did return.

Stafford was listed as questionable in weeks 14-16, but still managed to start in all three outings. We've known that as Detroit Lions fans since after his second season, and he's started every game for the Lions since 2011.

"(Stafford) had the back thing, and he went through numerous things where he wanted to play through it and our doctors said he could play through it", general manager Bob Quinn said back in January. Over his final four games, Stafford threw three touchdowns and averaged just 173 passing yards. That's one thing I'll never, ever question. "We need to do a better job of putting better players around him and scheming up things better to use his talent".
