Stafford suffered a leg injury late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 44-41 loss to the Titans trying to run down a defender on the fumble return. Stafford did not seem to be favoring the leg at all and was walking normally as he walked out to practice with a backward baseball cap on.
Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said in his Monday press conference the team would monitor Stafford’s progress throughout the week and make a determination on his availability for Sunday’s game against the Vikings later in the week.
Stafford’s game status will be determined on Friday’s injury report.
Also not practicing today were: safety Louis Delmas, tight end Tony Scheffler, linebacker Travis Lewis, defensive tackle Corey Williams and receiver Titus Young.
Receiver Calvin Johnson, who has not practiced on Wednesday the last three weeks, did participate in the portion of practice open to the media today.
