Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford left Sunday’s epic loss to the Titans with a leg injury. Believed to be a hamstring or a dreaded “butt muscle” injury, the Lions have been tight-lipped about the outcome of Stafford’s MRI.
We were told Monday that it’s indeed a hamstring issue, but that Stafford should be OK.
That said, he’s not sufficiently OK to practice. Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press said during Wednesday’s PFT Live that Stafford didn’t practice on Wednesday.
Birkett believes, based on Stafford’s history of playing through injuries, that he may not practice at all this week, but that he’ll suit up and go on Sunday.
If he does, there could be limited mobility. Which could play right into Vikings defensive end Jared Allen’s hands.
