Matthew Stafford didn’t get a chance at a game-winning drive in Detroit’s loss to Atlanta on Sunday, but he did get some good news on Monday as the MRI on his right leg was negative.

Stafford grabbed at his right knee and also injured his ankle, so there was serious concern about his health, particularly given his injury history. But Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said nothing was broken and had a (somewhat) positive outlook on Stafford’s prognosis.

“He went home yesterday in a boot for his ankle, and he’s no more than day to day,” Schwartz said Monday, per the Detroit Free-Press. “We’ll see where he is on Wednesday and, hopefully, we can get him out on the practice field. He’s got an ankle; knee’s not an issue.”

Schwartz added that if Stafford “had a broken bone or something like that, he’d be more than day to day.”
