Source: Lions QB Stafford seen in walking boot; MRI scheduled Monday

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was seen in a walking boot and will undergo an MRI on Monday, Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports.

According to Glazer, the Lions have been tight lipped about Stafford’s injury.

Stafford injured his right leg — knee or ankle, which was re-taped on the sideline — on the final play of the Lions’ 23-16 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

A guy just fell on me a little bit awkward,” Stafford said after the game. “I’m moving around on it OK right now. We’ll see.”

Shoulder and knee injuries have cost Stafford 19 games over his first two seasons in the league, with his current seven-game streak the longest of his short career.

Through seven games, Stafford has completed 60.2 percent of his 269 pass attempts for 1,912 yards with 16 touchdowns and four interceptions. Although he didn’t turn the ball over during the Lions’ two-game losing streak, Stafford is completing just 52 percent of his attempts.
