Lions QB Stafford questionable for Sunday

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees takes a snap in the second quarter during the game between the New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium in London England on Sunday

Matthew Stafford injured his ankle last week against the Carolina Panthers, but he will play through the pain against the New Orleans Saints in Week 6, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Stafford was a full participant in practice all week despite the ankle injury and will look to lead his team to a road victory in the Big Easy.

Right guard T.J. Lang is a surprise inactive for the Lions today against the New Orleans Saints (1 p.m., Fox).

For the Saints, starting left tackle Terron Armstead is active for the first time this season.

Drew Brees went 20-of-30 passing, for 186 yards and two touchdowns.

Detroit has to feel disgusting with how the last few weeks have gone. Alvin Kamara got the start, but Ingram was given three touches including a catch on the first drive, and he got loose for a 51-yard run down the sideline on the second possession.

The Lions ran out of downs as the first half ended with the score still 31-10.

That turned into a 35-point edge when rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore took advantage of a miscommunication between Stafford and receiver Marvin Jones, intercepting a wayward pass and returning it for a 27-yard touchdown.

Detroit then closed to within 45-38 on a 2-yard interception return by A'Shawn Robinson. Lingering too long looking for an option, he was hit from behind by defensive end Alex Okafer in the end zone and fumbled the ball.

The Lions are now 3-3 entering their bye week.

Free Press sports writers Dave Birkett and Carlos Monarrez make their picks for Sunday's Lions-Saints game.

The Saints now stand 3-2 going into next Sunday afternoon's trip to Lambeau Field to meet the Green Bay Packers.
