Quaterback Matthew Stafford participates in Lions practice again Friday

Quarterback Matthew Stafford was on the practice again Friday and looks to be in line to start Sunday vs. the Vikings.

Official game designations will be released on Detroitlions.com at 4 p.m.

Stafford missed Wednesday’s practice after aggravating a hip injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Titans. He was back on the practice field on Thursday and was listed as limited in the official injury report.

Also practicing in the portion open to the media Friday was tight end Tony Scheffler. Scheffler was also limited in Thursday’s practice, his first since injuring a calf against the 49ers in Week 2.

The Lions had almost their full compliment of players on the practice field Friday as they continue to prepare for Sunday’s matchup with the Vikings at Ford Field. The only players missing practice were: safety Louis Delmas, defensive tackle Corey Williams and linebacker Travis Lewis.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz has already ruled Williams out for Sunday after he underwent knee surgery on Tuesday.

    Staying healthy is part of the game. It’s hard to win without your best players on the field and without Delmas these first few games our secondary doesn’t have an edge. He gives them the attitude they seem to be missing. It’s still ealry with these draft picks (secondary) but I’d like to see us spend a 1st or 2nd round pick on a shutdown corner or some other kind of demon in the secondary. Just a thought but if our secondary could cover better maybe our defensive line would push a little harder to get the QB. It’s hard to bring your “A” game every play when you know the secondary is going to get shredded week in and week out. Go Lions.
