ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - Detroit coach Jim Schwartz says quarterback Matthew Stafford is "day to day" after hurting his right ankle late in Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
Schwartz said Stafford wore a protective boot after the game, but he wouldn't go into any details about any X-rays or MRI.
Schwartz did hint that the injury wasn't overly serious, saying if tests had shown anything too significant, Stafford would be "more than day to day."
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.
Next Sunday the Lions travel to Denver to play the 2-4 Broncos.
