Shaun Hill to start for Matthew Stafford
Lions coach Jim Schwartz says Stafford will have his injured right shoulder evaluated Monday by Andrews in Alabama.
Schwartz says he doesn't know if a decision about Stafford's status this season will be made at that time.
Stafford separated his throwing shoulder in Week 1 and missed five games. He has played in just three games this season and aggravated the banged-up right shoulder Sunday against the New York Jets.
Shaun Hill is expected to start at Buffalo, where the Lions hope to avoid an NFL-record 25th straight setback on the road.
Stafford was out of six games last year because of injuries after being drafted No. 1 overall.
