Matthew Stafford said he wore a glove against the Bears during a 37-13 loss because he had a fractured finger in his right throwing hand according to Anwar S. Richardson of Mlive.com.
Stafford wore a glove last week during practice, but previously said he did it to get used to Chicago’s cold climate. After completing 33 of 63 passes for 329 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions, Stafford admitted he wore the glove against Chicago to protect his finger. “It’s fractured, but it’s not bad,” Stafford said.
When asked about throwing with the glove, Stafford said it did not bother him. He said the wind in Solider Field was more problematic than the fractured finger. “It felt fine,” Stafford said. “I felt like I made some real good throws with it. I made some tough throws with it.”
