Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was able to practice for the second straight day, which should eliminate any concern about his availability for Sunday’s game against the Vikings, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Stafford was held out Wednesday with a hamstring strain (it was listed as hip), but showed no signs of a problem Friday.

Lions tight end Tony Scheffler also practiced for the second straight day as well.

Safety Louis Delmas and linebacker Travis Lewis remained out.
