Detroit Lions rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford practiced for a second straight day today, another sign that he could start in Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams at Ford Field. There was some concern about how Stafford's knee would react after Tuesday's workout and whether there would be any swelling.
Stafford looked fairly sharp in taking snaps during the 30-minute period of practice in which the media is allowed to watch. The team was in full pads today. The only indication that Stafford still isn't 100 percent is that, during the stretching and warmup period, he only did leg lunges with one leg.
