Matthew Stafford suffers nasty-looking ankle injury
Matthew Stafford appeared to suffer an ankle injury during the second half of the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Stafford was sacked on third down with the Los Angeles Rams trailing the Cincinnati Bengals 20-16 late in the third quarter. He immediately grabbed his left ankle, which got caught awkwardly underneath him as he was being dragged to the turf.

Stafford was able to limp off the field, but he appeared to be in significant pain.
Stafford didn’t miss any time, which isn’t a surprise. He has a reputation for being one of the toughest players in the NFL and has played through numerous injuries. His mobility was almost certainly impacted afterword, though.
