DETROIT -- Shaun Hill will make his third consecutive start at quarterback for Detroit on Sunday at Green Bay.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz indicated on Wednesday that Matthew Stafford is making progress in his rehab from a right shoulder injury, but added that the former number-one overall selection is not nearly ready to return to the field.

Hill, who took over for the injured Stafford in the season-opening loss to Chicago, has completed 63-of-107 passes for 660 yards and three touchdowns while throwing five interceptions.

Rookie running back Jahvid Best and veteran receiver Nate Burleson did not practice on Wednesday, but both are anticipating being healthy enough to play on Sunday for the 0-3 Lions.
