Lions' Stafford healing, might play

Detroit Free Press - [Full Article]

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said he felt better today than he did Oct. 14, the last time he tested his injured knee in practice. But he wouldn’t speculate whether he would be able to play Sunday against St. Louis.

Stafford reportedly suffered a partially dislocated right kneecap Oct. 4 at Chicago and has missed the past two games. He tested the knee in practice the Wednesday before the Lions’ last game, Oct. 18 at Green Bay, and had swelling afterward.

“It wasn’t a ton of swelling, but there was some discomfort with it,” Stafford said. “That was just a reaction. Obviously, I wasn’t ready to come back. That’s all that said.”

Stafford took about half the reps today, as he did the last time he practiced.
