ALLEN PARK Quarterback Matthew Stafford practiced this afternoon for the first time since Oct. 14. Stafford injured his right knee in the loss at Chicago on Oct. 4 and missed the two games since then. The media is allowed to watch the first 30 minutes of practice and Stafford did not appear limited during that time. Daunte Culpepper (hamstring) practiced again today. He also practiced Friday.
Wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) did not practice, but was catching balls along the sideline.
Coming off a bye week, the Lions (1-5) had an unusual Tuesday practice. They are preparing to play the winless St. Louis Rams (0-7) on Sunday at Ford Field.
