ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford was able to practice Wednesday despite a right ankle issue that had him limping late in last weekend's game against Carolina.
The Lions said Stafford participated in a full practice. When asked beforehand about his status for Sunday's game at New Orleans, he said: "You guys can figure it out through the week."
Stafford was sacked six times in last weekend's game, but he threw two late touchdown passes in a rally that fell just short. Carolina won 27-24 .
