Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Lions QB Matt Stafford is in a walking boot with a sprained ankle. We’re told that, as of now, the thinking is that it’s slightly better than the dreaded high ankle sprain.
Stafford will be getting a second opinion later in the week, which suggests that there’s something about the first opinion that Stafford may not have liked. At this point, it’s unknown whether he’ll miss any time.
Officially, coach Jim Schwartz told the media on Monday that Stafford is “no more than day-to-day” with that ankle injury.
Good news for Stafford owners. He appears to be on target to play this week, with a bye the following week. We'll be sure to keep an eye on Stafford's progress as the week goes on.
