Matthew Stafford

Lions QB Matthew Stafford said during a Tuesday appearance on the “Mitch Albom Show” that he’s doing fine physically and expects to be “good to go” for Week 2.

“I’m doing OK,” Stafford said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. “I’m feeling healthy and good to go.”

“I was just locked out on my left leg and my knee just kind of, leg just kind of hyper-extended just a little bit. Probably scared me more than anything. That’s a common way people (get) really hurt, so I was lucky to get out of there with not too much (damage).


Lions HC Matt Patricia downplayed the Jets knowing their plays during Monday’s blowout loss.

I think we’re talking about something that’s pretty common to when you have to face an opponent, there’s going to be things there that you’re very familiar with,” Patricia said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. “Obviously, I would say, on both sides of the ball, there’s some high familiarity with some of the things that they do that we worked [in practice]. They just obviously out-executed us and that was the biggest problem.

  • Adam Schefter reports that an MRI on DE Ziggy Ansah‘s shoulder revealed he did not suffer a significant injury and the Lions are hopeful he can play on Sunday against the 49ers.
