Lions fans and fantasy owners around the league got some good news today when Matthew Stafford returned to the practice field. The Thursday return puts Stafford on track to play in Sunday’s game against the Vikings as he reportedly showed no signs of being injured in the portion of practice open to the media.

Two of Stafford’s weapons also returned to practice. Titus Young and Tony Scheffler were both back after missing yesterday’s practice. Scheffler was out all last week and missed Sunday’s game against the Titans. Louis Delmas and Corey Williams remain out.

Online sportsbooks have kept the Vikings-Lions matchup off their boards, undoubtedly simply because of the uncertainty surrounding Matthew Stafford’s status. With today’s news, a betting line is surely right around the corner. Where would you set the line?
