Matthew Stafford is back in practice for the Detroit Lions on Wednesday after injuring his ankle in Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Stafford warmed up, threw the ball a few times and took a couple snaps in individual drills, but backup Shaun Hill was the featured quarterback. In all likelihood, the Lions will want to see how Stafford's ankle responds to physical activity before providing his status on the injury report around 4 p.m.
This is a great sign for Stafford owners. He still has a ways to go before we can pencil him into the starting lineup in Week 8, but the fact that he was doing anything at all at practice is good news.
