All signs continue to point toward Matthew Stafford playing through a partially torn ligament in this throwing hand, although he’s going to be without his best receiver, leading receiver and his touchdown leader the effort, Kyle Meinke of Mlive reports.

Kenny Golladay, Danny Amendola and D’Andre Swift have all been officially ruled out for Sunday’s game in Carolina against the Panthers, while offensive lineman Halapoulivaati Vaitai (foot) defensive end Austin Bryant (thigh), safety Will Harris (groin), defensive lineman Da’Shawn Hand (groin) and linebacker Jarrad Davis (knee) are all questionable.

Stafford is also officially listed as questionable, although it seems very likely he will get the start. He did partially tear a ligament in the thumb of his throwing hand last Sunday and missed practice on Wednesday, but looked good since returning to work on Thursday and Friday.

He is still wearing a supportive device over the thumb and was listed as limited the last two days, but there’s no reason to think he won’t start in Carolina.

“He’s been able to do everything we’ve asked him to do this week,” quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan told MLive after practice on Friday. “I haven’t seen anything from him from a functional standpoint that’s been hurt by it. When he’s been asked to perform his job, he’s done it. So, it’s been good in that way.”
