The Lions returned to practice Wednesday morning in preparation for Sunday's game at Green Bay -- and so did quarterback Matthew Stafford.
The Lions' rookie No. 1 overall pick took some snaps along with Daunte Culpepper and Drew Stanton during the early portion of drills that were open to the media. Stafford missed last week's game against Pittsburgh after suffering a partially dislocated right kneecap in an Oct. 4 loss at Chicago.
Coach Jim Schwartz said Monday he wouldn't rule out Stafford playing against the Packers, even if he wasn't a full participant in practice Wednesday. He plans to keep Stafford's status up in the air until Sunday.
