Shaun Hill to start; Stafford progressing

ALLEN PARK -- Coach Jim Schwartz announced today (Wednesday) that Shaun Hill will get the start on Sunday at Minnesota.

Schwartz said Matthew Stafford is doing “very well” in his rehab for his injured throwing shoulder. But obviously not well enough to get consideration for Sunday at the Metrodome.

Hill will practice with the starters all week just like he did last week.

“It’s always going to help when you’re working with the unit that you’re going to be playing with. It seemed like a crisp, sharp practice today,’’ said Scott Linehan, the offensive coordinator.

Hill was 25 of 45 for 335 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Eagles on Sunday.

When asked how much mobility he has, Stafford held his right arm straight up in the air briefly.

He watched the loss to the Eagles with the coaches on the press box level and didn’t have much to say about the view.
