NFL investigating Lions for possible injury report violation with Matthew Stafford . Stafford had been limited in practice in the days leading up to Sunday and had been listed as questionable on the final injury report ; by definition, questionable means a player has a 50-50 chance of suiting up.

The Detroit Lions, head coach Matt Patricia, and general manager Bob Quinn were fined $75,000, $25,000, and $10,000, respectively, for violating the NFL Injury Report Policy, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

The infractions are a result of the team designating quarterback Matthew Stafford as questionable before a Nov. 10 game against the Chicago Bears. The Lions purportedly knew Stafford would be unable to play by Friday of that week, as tests had revealed fractures in his back.

Stafford hasn't suited up for a game since Nov. 3. The Lions have labeled him week-to-week since then, refusing to place him on season-ending injured reserve.

Six days after an angst-filled loss in Seattle, the Vikings took care of business against the undermanned Lions, beating Detroit 20-7 at U.S. Bank Stadium. Lions quarterback David Blough was making his second NFL start Sunday and couldn't solve a Vikings defense that was torched in a 37-30 loss to the Seahawks on Monday night. Kirk Cousins threw for 242 yards and a touchdown for the Vikings (9-4), who remained a game behind first place Green Bay in the NFC North. The Vikings' defensive line, which produced nine of the team's 10 sacks of Matthew Stafford at U.S. Bank Stadium last year, again tormented a Lions front it has owned in recent meetings.
