ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell says quarterback Matthew Stafford's finger injury should not prevent him from playing this weekend against the New York Giants.
   The middle finger on Stafford's right hand was taped up and covered by a white glove Sunday, when he threw for 223 yards in a 20-17 win over Chicago. Stafford had an interception returned for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.
   Caldwell said Monday the injury affected Stafford against the Bears, but he should be able to practice.
   Detroit (9-4) leads the NFC North by two games, and the Giants (9-4) would be the conference's top wild card if the season ended now.
