Stafford practices for Lions despite ankle issue

Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford was able to practice Wednesday despite a right ankle issue that had him limping late in last
weekend’s game against Carolina. The Lions said Stafford participated in a full practice. When asked beforehand about his status for Sunday’s game at New Orleans, he said: “You guys can figure it out through the week.” Stafford was sacked six times in last weekend’s game, but he threw two late touchdown passes in a rally that fell just short. Carolina won 27-24.
