Lions plan to start QB Shaun Hill against Vikings because Matthew Stafford isn't ready to play

Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz says quarterback Shaun Hill will start at Minnesota on Sunday.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford did not practice Wednesday. Schwartz says Stafford is doing well with his rehabilitation, but the coach and player haven't said what the timetable is for his return.

The No. 1 pick in the 2009 NFL draft injured his right shoulder in the season-opening loss at Chicago and missed Week 2 against Philadelphia. He missed six games last year with an injured left shoulder and right knee.

Hill has completed 53 percent of his passes for 423 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in two games this season.
