TAMPA, Fla. -- Yes, I'm aware that Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford limped off the field a few moments ago after throwing his third touchdown pass against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Hold your horses. All indications are that Stafford is suffering from cramps on this steamy day and nothing more.
Whether he can immediately return is yet to be seen. I'll update this post when we know more. Update: Stafford is back in the game for the Lions' next possession.
At this point, Stafford has completed 22 of 29 passes for 295 yards and three touchdowns, two of which have gone to receiver Calvin Johnson.
