Three days after he sprained his right ankle on the Lions’ final offensive play Sunday, quarterback Matthew Stafford was back at practice in a limited capacity according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
Hill and Stanton took first and second-team reps, respectively, with the Lions’ skeleton offense, but Stafford jogged lightly during warm-ups, threw passes to his receivers and moved well around on the field.
He sat out one drill during the 30 minutes or so open to the media, as he took off an ankle brace and trainers brought him a new shoe.
“It was the wrong size,” Stafford said. “Seriously. So they had to bring out another one.”
Lions coach Jim Schwartz didn’t announce a starter today but said he’d know who’s playing by the end of the week.
“Hopefully, we can keep him on that track, and if he’s able to go Sunday, then he will,” Schwartz said. “He’s our starting quarterback, but we’ve got to be prepared in any case.”
