Lions QB Matthew Stafford throwing again, has two fingers taped

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford reacts after injuring his hand in the second half of an NFL football game against the Baltimore Ravens Sunday Dec. 3 2017 in Baltimore

He did not throw any passes during the open portion of Wednesday's practice.

Head coach Jim Caldwell opened Friday's media session with nary an answer about Stafford's health, saying he's "progressing" and throwing "decently". Unofficially, the quarterback is expected to start Sunday's game against the Buccaneers barring a setback. Regardless, backup Jake Rudock received a large dose of practice repetitions this week.

Officially, the Lions list Matthew Stafford as questionable.

Stafford's hand was injured during last Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

Running back Ameer Abdullah (neck), return man Jamal Agnew (neck), punter Sam Martin (foot) and defensive end Cornelius Washington (shoulder) were the other players limited.
