JUST IN: Detroit Lions’ Matthew Stafford comments on ankle injury

The Detroit Lions and fans got a scare during their Thanksgiving loss to the Minnesota Vikings; Matthew Stafford went down and limped off the field. He threw a 43-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Jones in the fourth quarter and had guard Corey Robinson tackle a Vikings defender to the ground and into his leg.

Stafford made his appearance on the Mitch Albom Show on Monday and made the statement that while he’s still getting treatment, he doesn’t expect to miss time.

“I’m feeling better,” Stafford said during his weekly appearance on The Mitch Albom Show on WJR-AM (760) on Monday. “Obviously stuck around in town this weekend, got a bunch of treatment on it. We’ll see. Coach (Jim Caldwell) will put out that report on Wednesday or whatever it is for practice and all that kind of stuff, but it’s getting better and hopefully it’ll continue to get better.”

“A scary play for sure,” he said. “Anytime that kind of stuff happens, it’s the game of football. The pocket gets muddied sometimes and guys are doing everything they can to get to me, our guys are doing everything they can to keep them off me and sometimes that kind of stuff happens. I’m just happy that it wasn’t anything crazy.”

While Stafford didn’t say whether he’d be limited in practice, he showed no outwardly signs of distress or discomfort walking through the locker room on Monday.

The Lions next game will be on Sunday as they will travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens.
