Lions' Matthew Stafford: Not practicing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford is not participating in Tuesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

This doesn't come as much of a surprise with the Lions heading into their bye week, but it's also a reminder that Stafford likely is still somewhat hampered by his ankle injury. For now, Stafford's absence should be viewed as no more than a maintenance day for the veteran quarterback, and with the team now having a week off, it's unlikely he enters next Sunday's game against the Steelers as an injury risk.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Tosses three scores, three picks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 25 of 52 passes for 312 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in Sunday's 52-38 loss to the Saints.

Who would have thought that the struggling New Orleans pass defense would be the cause of Stafford's first multi-interception game of the season? Stafford had gone four consecutive games without a pick. A large part of the problem can be found in the pace of the game as New Orleans led by three scores at the half and all three of Stafford's interceptions came afterward. Stafford has been at his best this season when he is able to distribute the ball and not force the issue. This should be a blip on the radar, but expect another tough test against Pittsburgh's zone-blitzing scheme, which has been among the stingiest defenses in the league, next week.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford (ankle) is active for Sunday's game in New Orleans, Mike Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

In the aftermath of last Sunday's loss to the Panthers, Stafford's right ankle and quadriceps were heavily taped. Termed as mere soreness by head coach Jim Caldwell, Stafford handled every practice rep this week, in essence putting the quarterback on pace to active status. Stafford will thus make his 102nd consecutive regular-season start against the Saints' exploitable secondary, which has conceded the 28th-most passing yards (265.3) per game this season.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Listed as questionable, set to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Though he's listed as questionable on the final injury report, Stafford is in line to play in Sunday's game against the Saints, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The real question pertains to Stafford's mobility, not his availability. He was a full practice participant throughout the week, and Detroit didn't add a third quarterback to its roster. While a trip to the SuperDome is always good news for a signal caller, Stafford's ankle could make it tough for him to deal with pressure, if the Saints are able to muster any. It's worth noting that the New Orleans defense gave up just 13 points over its last two games, completely shutting down both Cam Newton and Jay Cutler.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Starts week with full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Per Kyle Meinke of MLive.com, Stafford was clearly favoring his right leg at Wednesday's practice, but his throwing power and accuracy nonetheless appeared to be intact. The veteran quarterback may have limited mobility Sunday in New Orleans, but it seems only a major setback at practice could actually threaten his availability for the game. In addition to the favorable matchup, Stafford may benefit from the potential return of No. 3 receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring), who was back at practice Wednesday as a limited participant.
