False alarm over Lions’ Stafford

The collective heart of Lions Nation might have skipped at beat at seeing Matthew Stafford┬álimp off the field during the third quarter against the Bucs in Tampa. It’s not your fault. It’s not your fault.

Trainers checked out Stafford’s right ankle/leg on the bench, but the Lions quarterback returned for the next series after Shaun Hill warmed up briefly on the sideline. According to the FOX game broadcast, Stafford is experiencing cramping in his leg. We’ve seen quite a bit of it around the league in Week 1 in some warm-temperature games.

Stafford has been fantastic against the Bucs, completing 22-of-29 passes for 295 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.
