Stafford's status for Sunday still unknown

Posted Oct 28, 2011

RB Jahvid Best out for the second consecutive game with a concussion.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford has been limited in practice this week and is listed as questionable on the injury report.

When asked whether Stafford would start at Denver, Head Coach Jim Schwartz declined to answer.

"I'll just say he is better today than he was yesterday and hopefully we can keep him on that track to Sunday," he said.

Schwartz also wouldn't confirm that the starting quarterback will be a game-time decision.

"A lot of things can happen between now and Sunday," he said. "I have learned not to make decisions on Fridays. There are good and bad things that have happened on Fridays or Saturdays."

Running back Jahvid Best, who suffered a concussion against San Francisco on October 16, is listed as out for the second consecutive week.

Defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who reaggravated the foot he injured at the outset of training camp, is listed as doubtful. Defensive tackle Sammie Hill, who suffered an ankle injury toward the end of last week's game, is listed as questionable.

Probable are: guard Rob Sims (illness), tackle Gosder Cherilus (knee), cornerback Chris Houston (back) and defensive end Willie Young (calf).
