Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had an MRI on his right leg today to figure out what exactly he hurt on fourth down in the fourth quarter during Sunday's game. As it turns out, Stafford's knee is okay, but he did hurt his ankle. Pro Football Talk is calling the injury an ankle sprain, and Stafford is wearing a walking boot because of it.
Although that doesn't exactly sound promising, Jim Schwartz said Stafford is considered "no more than day-to-day." That is an ambiguous designation, but at the very least it doesn't sound like Stafford's injury is too serious.
Schwartz did not want to comment on test results of MRI/X-Ray but says that, "if they weren't clean, he wouldn't be day-to-day."
It's probably too early in the week to get an idea of if Stafford will play on Sunday against the Denver Broncos. Even if he doesn't play, the good news is that with the Lions' bye coming up next week, Stafford should be ready to go by the Nov. 13 game at the Chicago Bears.
