Stanton starts for Lions; Shaun Hill the backup
TAMPA -- As expected Drew Stanton will start today for the Lions against the Buccaneers. Shaun Hill will serve as the backup. Zac Robinson is listed as the third quarterback.
Matthew Stafford (shoulder) will miss his sixth straight start with this injury. He was on the field in pre-game warmups messing around with the other quarterbacks and throwing left-handed. Didn’t see a right-handed throw.
Also inactive today are RB Aaron Brown, T Tony Ugoh, G Donald Thomas, DE Willie Young.
Corey Hilliard will start at right tackle instead of Gosder Cherilus who was placed on injured reserve.
Bobby Carpenter will start at outside linebacker for Landon Johnson (neck).
LB Vinny Ciurciu (concussion) did not make the trip.
It’s cool and drizzly at Raymond James Stadium.
