Schefter: Matthew Stafford dealing with a hip injury
Wednesday, September 26, 2012, 12:27pm
When asked about the status of Lions QB Matthew Stafford, ESPN's Adam Schefter said this: "I would be surprised if he practiced Wednesday or Thursday, but ultimately, when the game rolls around, he's a tough guy to count out. The injury looks to be more of a hip injury than anything else. There will be explanations of hamstrings and glutes this week -- be very skeptical. It's our understanding it's more of a hip injury, and it's a hip injury that's serious enough to prevent him from finishing last Sunday's game and to make him a question mark for this one. But knowing Stafford's toughness, my sense is he'll be out there. If he's not, that tells you how bad the injury is."

Decision on Stafford to come Friday
Monday, September 24, 2012, 2:45pm
Jim Schwartz on QB Matt Stafford: "I don't have any comment" on how his MRI went. Said he'll make a determination on Friday.
Matthew Stafford to have MRI on re-injured leg
Sunday, September 23, 2012, 8:56pm
Stafford said the injury happened during practices leading up to Sunday's loss –- he didn't identify which workout –- and that the injury bothered him throughout the week. Stafford said his pursuit of Titans CB Alterraun Verner after Verner's interception late in the fourth quarter was the final straw.
“I felt [the injury] during a couple of plays,” he said. “I was trying to sit on a heat pack to try and keep it loose and warm. On the play trying to go after [Verner], I felt like I couldn't [run fast]. I felt like if I tried to [run] it would have been a lot worse than it is.
Stafford said he wasn't sure which muscle in his leg was injured, and that he will undergo an MRI for further diagnosis.
Shaun Hill would be a very capable fill-in if Stafford has to miss Week 4.
Matthew Stafford takes some snaps at practice
Wednesday, October 26, 2011, 1:10pm
Stafford warmed up, threw the ball a few times and took a couple snaps in individual drills, but backup Shaun Hill was the featured quarterback. In all likelihood, the Lions will want to see how Stafford's ankle responds to physical activity before providing his status on the injury report around 4 p.m.
This is a great sign for Stafford owners. He still has a ways to go before we can pencil him into the starting lineup in Week 8, but the fact that he was doing anything at all at practice is good news.
QB Matthew Stafford Shines as Detroit Routs Cincinnati
Saturday, August 13, 2011, 8:14am
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford threw touchdown passes on his two drives, while backup quarterback Shaun Hill ran for a score and Jason Hanson kicked a field goal to give Detroit a 24-3 lead at halftime. They ended up routing Cincinnati 34-3.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was hit by Ndamukong Sung after taking his first NFL snap and Chris Houston intercepted the underthrown pass. Dalton, a second-round pick, finished 11 of 15 for 69 yards. He put Cincinnati in a position to attempt two field goals and Mike Nugent made one to make it 14-3.
A very good start for Stafford, even if it was against the Bengals. If he can stay healthy, he'll be a very solid fantasy quarterback.

Lions backup QB Shaun Hill is part of the group of Lions taking part in player-organized workouts at Birmingham Detroit Country Day -- about 35 players attended Tuesday's session -- though he's a week removed from surgery to alleviate a disk problem in his lower back.
Hill, whose contract voids after the 2011 season, said he was told he'd be game-ready in four to six weeks and does not expect to miss training camp, whenever that begins.

QB Shaun Hill will start again for the Lions and remains bothered by a sore right index finger. WR Calvin Johnson is expected to start despite missing practice all week. The Lions did catch a break with Minnesota playing on Tuesday night in Philly and basically having only two practice days to prepare for this game.

I believed Lions QB Shaun Hill was going to play last week, but when he tested his finger in warm-ups the Detroit coaches didn’t like his velocity. Today, Drew Stanton has a shoulder bruise and Hill makes the most sense, although the Lions say they will wait until this morning to make a final decision.
