Matthew Stafford Injury Update: Lions QB Practices Without Wrap On Left Hand

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford participated in practice on Monday without any sort of wrapping on his left hand, as Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com reports. The fourth-year QB broke a blood vessel in the hand last Saturday, but he's not expected to miss the regular season opener.

Lions fans know all too well about Stafford going down, but this doesn't appear to be serious. The quarterback is already participating in practice again without obvious limitations, so he has some time to get back into form before the actual season opener on Sept. 9.

CBS Sports reports that Stafford may still miss Thursday's preseason finale against the Buffalo Bills, but that's mostly just a precaution. The Lions have gone just 1-2 during the preseason this year.
