    Detroit Lions quarterback’s Jeff Driskel (2) and Matthew Stafford watch during warmups before an NFL football game against the Chicago Bears in Chicago on Nov. 10.

DETROIT >> Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford did not practice with teammates a few days after hip and back injuries stopped his streak of 139 consecutive starts counting the playoffs.

Stafford watched today as quarterbacks Jeff Driskel and David Blough took snaps.

Driskel started in place of Stafford in a 20-13 loss to Chicago, giving Detroit its fifth loss in six games.

The Lions (3-5-1) host the Dallas Cowboys (5-4) on Sunday.

Driskel was 27 for 46 for 269 yards with a touchdown and an interception in his sixth career start.

Detroit coach Matt Patricia says someone from general manager Bob Quinn’s staff will attend Colin Kaepernick’s workout for NFL teams on Saturday in Atlanta.
