Report: Matthew Stafford expected to play Sunday against Saints

Matthew Stafford

The Detroit Lions are reportedly going to have 29-year-old Matthew Stafford in the lineup on Sunday in New Orleans, despite his questionable tag as he deals with an ankle injury.

Stafford is about as tough as quarterbacks come and has not missed a game since 2010. He has played through many bumps and bruises, and it does not look like he is going to let this ankle injury keep him out of this week’s tilt against the Saints.

Stafford and the Lions will be looking to rebound from last week’s loss against quarterback Drew Brees and the Saints, who return rested from their bye.

The good thing here is Stafford’s Lions have won their last two games against the Saints in New Orleans. If the Lions are victorious on Sunday, they will improve to a 4-2 record on the young season.
