Fox Sports Detroit:
Matthew Stafford is holding out hope that he'll play against Denver on Sunday, but there are no guarantees.
Stafford's right ankle was sprained when he was hit on the Lions' final offensive play in last Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
In a radio interview on NewsTalk 760 WJR in Detroit Tuesday afternoon, Stafford said he doesn't know if he will be ready to start against the Broncos.
"I can't put a percentage on it," Stafford said. "I've got to take it day by day, see how it's doing if I can move around and go out and play."
Stafford was hit on his right lower leg as he rolled left to throw a pass, which fell incomplete. He had his foot in a boot Sunday night and has been taking treatment.
If Stafford can't play, Shaun Hill will start.
Stafford did not say if he will be able to practice when the Lions begin drills Wednesday to prepare for Sunday's game.
Stafford was asked to describe the nature of the injury.

The Lions lost to the Falcons on Sunday, due to an astonishingly poor performance by the offense, and particularly Matthew Stafford. Many noticed the Lions seemed to be “in a lot of third-and-longs,” and blamed the lack of a power running game that could keep the Lions offense on schedule.
