Lions’ Stafford is day to day with a sore right ankle
ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is "day to day" after hurting his right ankle late in Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
Coach Jim Schwartz said Stafford wore a protective boot after the game, but he wouldn't go into any details about any X-rays or MRI.
Stafford's fourth-down pass fell incomplete with 90 seconds remaining Sunday, and he came hobbling off. He had his ankle taped and said later he would have tried to go back in, but Detroit never got the ball back. The Lions lost 23-16.
• Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is firing back at the Falcons, saying quarterback Matt Ryan's brief injury during the the third quarter Sunday was "karma" and hinting that Atlanta has been guilty of dirty play.
Atlanta players told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Suh and fellow defensive lineman Cliff Avril taunted the quarterback while he was down.
