Matthew Stafford and Detroit Lions Ready for Sunday

By Brian Cote

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford practiced for the second straight day as he attempts to get healthy for Sunday’s home game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Stafford has not shown any ill effects in today’s practice of his leg injury from week three that is officially listed as a hip injury. If he is hurting he is not letting anybody on to it and is doing a good job to conceal it.

It has been a rough go at it to say the least for Stafford and the Lions to start the NFL season. The last thing that the team wants is to fall back multiple game sin the division only a quarter of the way into the season.

Stafford has not been kind to his fantasy football owners thus far, but the offense showed many positive signs in last Sunday’s loss to the Tennessee Titans. The offense moved the ball well and at times with ease, so fans at Ford Field this week should be in for a treat if Detroit is on their game.

The defense needs to improve drastically, especially with Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin to contain. If not, Stafford will have to help the offense score a great deal of points to cover for defensive lapses.
