Stafford practices for 2nd straight day with Lions

BY foxsports • October 28, 2009

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford took another step toward being able to play.

Stafford participated without limitations in the parts of practice the media was allowed to watch for the second straight day Tuesday.

The Lions (1-5) host the St. Louis Rams (0-7) Sunday.

Stafford has missed two games with an injured right knee. Detroit had a bye Sunday, giving the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft another week to recover.

Receiver Calvin Johnson's right knee prevented him from practicing with his teammates in the open portion of the workout. Johnson has missed one game with the injury.
