The Detroit Lions have announced that Shaun Hill will start at quarterback today in Miami.
Hill has missed the previous three games after suffering a broken index finger on his throwing hand against the New England Patriots. Quarterback Drew Stanton, who suffered a shoulder injury in last week’s win at Tampa Bay, started in his place.
On Thursday, Head Coach Jim Schwartz confirmed that the injury situation of both quarterbacks would play into the decision of who to start against the Dolphins.
Schwartz: “I think both guys are mentally ready to play, both guys have played football this year – I don’t think that’s a question. Physically is probably going to be the question with both those guys.”
S Louis Delmas has also been listed inactive. C.C. Brown will start in his place.
LB Landon Johnson has been listed as inactive after missing the last game with a neck injury.
Complete list of inactives for today’s game:
- 3rd QB Zac Robinson
- RB Aaron Brown
- S Louis Delmas
- LB Caleb Campbell
- DE Barry Turner
- T Tony Ugoh
- G Donald Thomas
- DE Willie Young
