Lions QB Matt Stafford (ankle, hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He put in a full week of practice but will be “playing through pain,” according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. There’s obviously risk here that Stafford’s play will be impacted and/or he won’t make it through the game. But there’s also lots of upside in a plus spot in the Superdome.

Lions QB Matt Stafford (ankle, hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Saints. He put in a full week of practice, though, and is fully expected to play. The injuries obviously add some risk, but there’s also big upside in the Superdome, where the Saints have allowed multiple TDs to 13 of the last 17 visiting QBs.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that the Lions are "optimistic" that QB Matt Stafford will be able to play against the Saints this weekend. He suffered quad and ankle injuries in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. We'll keep an eye on him throughout the week. Stafford will have plenty of upside as long as he's able to play in New Orleans.

Update: ESPN's Dan Graziano reports that Stafford suffered a sprained ankle and a hamstring injury and that his practice week will determine his status for Sunday.

Lions QB Matt Stafford played through 1 or more leg injuries in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. He had his knee, ankle and foot taped up on the sidelines and was hobbling around in the 2nd half. Stafford didn't miss any snaps but was clearly bothered. He's now been sacked 6 times in back-to-back games. Neither Stafford nor HC Jim Caldwell had an injury update after the game, so we'll need to monitor him throughout the week.

Injury Predictor

The Lions QB played a total of only 13 games in his first 2 NFL seasons (2009 and 2010) — due entirely to injuries to both his left and right shoulders. But he's appeared in all 16 games for 6 straight seasons. Last season, he played through a dislocated right middle finger over his final 4 games (including 1 postseason game). He’s now back to 100%, but we’ll see how the Lions protect him with LT Taylor Decker set to miss games following shoulder surgery.
