Stafford Practicing Following Ankle Injury

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford is able to practice following his right ankle injury last weekend, although backup Shaun Hill took some snaps with the first team Wednesday.

Stafford was hurt toward the end of Sunday’s 23-16 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Coach Jim Schwartz said Monday he was day-to-day as the team began preparing for next weekend’s game at Denver.

Stafford was on the field with his helmet on and his footwork looked fine as he participated in throwing drills Wednesday, although he wasn’t required to move around much during the portion of practice open to reporters. He was able to jog in short stretches.

He played in only three games last season because of shoulder problems, but Stafford got off to a brilliant start this season.
