Lions Injury Update: Matthew Stafford not injured in bridge collapse


By on 9/27/2014 09:00:00 PM

Early Friday morning QB Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions was driving to practice on the Southfield Freeway when the driver of a garbage truck struck a pedestrian bridge, causing it to collapse to ground. Sadly, the driver of the truck passed away following the incident. Luckily no one else was injured during this tragedy. 


After swapping cars with the Lions’ head of security, Elton Moore, Stafford did eventually make it to practice, although as reported by Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, the whole ordeal left Stafford feeling a little ‘shocked’. 

It shocked me, but it probably shocked some people that were right around it even more,” Stafford said. “I didn’t really know what I was looking at. You don’t expect to see that when you’re driving to work, but I’m sure there were people closer to it than I was.” 

As for tomorrow’s game, the Lions will be looking to improve upon their current 2 – 1 record when they face off against the New York Jets at 1:00 PM EST at the MetLife Stadium.
