Matthew Stafford admits ankle isn't 100 percent after Lions' loss to Vikings

Matthew Stafford admits ankle isn't 100 percent after Lions' loss to Vikings

Matthew Stafford remained in the Lions' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Vikings after he hurt his ankle, but he is feeling the repercussions.

The Detroit quarterback was hobbled in the fourth quarter, when Vikings defensive tackle Tom Johnson rolled up on Stafford's right leg.

Stafford remained down after the play and was checked out by trainers, but eventually returned to the game.

Afterward, Stafford declined to say how severe his injury was, but he was limping considerably and did admit the ankle wasn't completely fine.

"Not 100 percent," Stafford said, via the team's website. "But ticker's still ticking, so we'll be all right."

Lions coach Jim Caldwell also declined to talk about Stafford's ankle, only saying "we'll see" when asked about it.

On the bright side: Stafford had 10 days before the Lions (6-5) play again, Dec. 3 against the Ravens.
