The Lions quarterback joins Justin Verlander and Calvin Johnson as Detroit athletes to recently be featured on the program.
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will be featured on ESPN's E:60, along with Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan, according to a report by Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com. The program will run on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m. ET.
Stafford is the third Detroit superstar to be featured on the program in the last two months, as Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander was on the program in September and Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was featured on the show in late August.
E:60 is a weekly investigative-journalism newsmagazine show that shows short, documentary-style feature pieces on athletes and stories that relate to sports.
Stafford has been the starting quarterback for the Lions since being drafted with the first overall selection in the 2009 NFL Draft. While injuries cut his rookie season short and cost him the majority of his second season, he has managed to stay healthy in each of the last two seasons.
Through six weeks, Stafford has tallied 1,493 yards passing with four touchdowns and five interceptions.
