Folks in Detroit can exhale, apparently. Quarterback Matthew Stafford believed after Sunday’s knee/ankle injuries that he’d be fine, and he apparently will be fine.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Stafford is in a walking boot with a sprained ankle. We’re told that, as of now, the thinking is that it’s slightly better than the dreaded high ankle sprain.
Stafford will be getting a second opinion later in the week, which suggests that there’s something about the first opinion that Stafford may not have liked. At this point, it’s unknown whether he’ll miss any time.
Officially, coach Jim Schwartz told the media on Monday that Stafford is “no more than day-to-day” with that ankle injury.
Stafford was injured late in Sunday’s loss to the Falcons. He underwent an MRI on both his right knee and his right ankle.
