ALLEN PARK, MICH. (AP) - The Detroit Lions will start quarterback Shaun Hill again this weekend at Green Bay while Matthew Stafford recovers from a shoulder injury.

Coach Jim Schwartz said Stafford won’t be healthy enough to play Sunday and Hill will make his second-straight start.

Stafford was knocked out of the season opener by Chicago’s Julius Peppers, putting him on the sideline with a banged-up right shoulder _ his third injury in two seasons. Stafford missed six games last year after being the No. 1 pick in the draft because of a banged-up left shoulder and right knee.

Detroit is 0-3 this season and 3-40 since midway through 2007, giving the Lions the worst 43-game mark in NFL history, according to STATS LLC.

Stafford told WJR-AM on Monday that he would likely test his injured right shoulder with some throwing this week. He didn’t throw any passes Wednesday during the part of practice open to the media.
