Lions QB Hill sits out practice with splint on finger
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions
might have more problems at quarterback. Shaun Hill
appeared to have a splint on the index finger of his throwing hand at practice Tuesday. He stood off to the side while Drew Stanton
took snaps with the first team.
The Lions already lost quarterback Matthew Stafford
to an injured shoulder, and Hill has been starting in his place. Stafford was at practice but wasn't participating in the portion open to the media.
Stanton has played in three games this season, completing 20 of 36 passes for 233 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
Stanton could start vs. the Chicago Bears next Sunday.
