The Detroit Lions are scheduled to practice Monday afternoon at 3 p.m. ET. It's not clear if quarterback Matthew Stafford will take the field after injuring his left hand Saturday night, but according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, there is every expectation that Stafford will be ready for the Lions' Week 1 game against the St. Louis Rams.
A blood vessel in Stafford's hand popped when the Oakland Raiders' Dave Tollefson hit it Saturday night, causing near-instant swelling that Stafford said "freaked" him out. But X-rays were negative for a fracture, and indications even late Saturday night were that he had escaped serious injury.
