Lions' Shaun Hill takes reps with starters
ALLEN PARK -- Shaun Hill took reps with the starters in practice today (Wednesday) which is an indication he will be the starter on Sunday in Miami. It’s not a sure thing, but it definitely makes him the favorite.
Coach Jim Schwartz will address the situation when he talks to the media following practice. Although he won’t necessarily name a starter.
Drew Stanton, who injured his left shoulder in the first half of Sunday’s 23-20 overtime win at Tampa, was the No. 2 quarterback in practice. He has won two straight games.
Hill broke a knuckle on the index finger of his throwing hand during the Thanksgiving loss to the Patriots. He started throwing at practice last week and was listed as the backup for Sunday’s game against the Bucs.
Matthew Stafford sprained his throwing shoulder in the loss to the Jets on Nov. 7 and has been out ever since. Stafford did some light throwing two weeks ago in practice and has not been seen throwing again. He was not at practice, but that is not unusual.
