Matthew Stafford said his sprained right ankle is "feeling better," and the Detroit Lions quarterback is not expected to miss any time with his latest injury. “I’m feeling better," Stafford said during his weekly appearance on The Mitch Albom Show on WJR-AM (760) on Monday. "Obviously stuck around in town this weekend, got a bunch of treatment on it. We’ll see. Coach (Jim Caldwell) will put out that report on Wednesday or whatever it is for practice and all that kind of stuff, but it’s getting better and hopefully it’ll continue to get better." Stafford was injured on a 43-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Jones in the fourth quarter of last week's Thanksgiving loss to the Minnesota Vikings when guard Corey Robinson wrestled a Vikings defender to the ground and into his leg. The Lions trailed, 27-23, after Jones' touchdown, but failed to pick up a first down on their final two series as Stafford struggled with the injury. Stafford completed just 3 of 6 passes for 7 yards with an interception on the two drives, and underwent precautionary X-rays after the game.
