Detroit QB Matthew Stafford listed as probable for Sunday's game against Denver


ALLEN PARK, Michigan — Detroit Lions quarterback is listed as probable for Sunday night's game against Denver.

Stafford's injured ribs did not prevent him from being a full participant in practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and the Lions can certainly use him in their home opener this weekend. Detroit lost its first two games of the season at San Diego and Minnesota.

Lions linebacker (hip) is listed as doubtful, and tight end (hamstring) has been ruled out.
