Lions' Schwartz does not name starter for Sunday

ALLEN PARK -- It seems that Drew Stanton has earned the right to a third start on Sunday in Miami, but there are several variables involved in the decision.

Lions coach Jim Schwartz said on Monday that he is in no hurry to name a starting quarterback for Sunday. The coach said it’s possible the decision will not be announced until Sunday.

Stanton has picked up two straight wins as the starter, but suffered a shoulder injury at Tampa. Schwartz wouldn’t give details on the injury, but said it could be a factor.

Shaun Hill broke a knuckle in his index finger of his throwing hand on Thanksgiving and was the backup on Sunday. He practiced last week on a limited basis.

Matthew Stafford has been out six weeks with his second shoulder injury of the season. In Sunday’s pre-game warm-ups he was careful to not even toss the ball with his right arm.
