Stafford says he’s starting today in Denver
As the Lions try to stop a two-game slide in the Mile High city, they’ll have the services of quarterback Matthew Stafford.
Stafford tells Ed Werder of ESPN that the third-year player will indeed start on Sunday, despite a sprained ankle.
Stafford suffered the injury late in last Sunday’s loss to the Falcons. We were told after the game that Stafford fully intended to play with the bum ankle.
Whether the ankle holds up will be something to watch. As will be the question of whether Stafford will be able to find other options in the passing game with Champ Bailey and a safety trying to take away Calvin Johnson.
