ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Matthew Stafford simply stood on the field, letting Jake Rudock take snaps at the Detroit Lions' only practice during their bye week.
Stafford's body has taken a beating recently. He has been sacked 17 times in the past three games, leaving him with an ailing right ankle and sore ribs.
Stafford needs a break this week. And, he's not alone.
