Shaun Hill recovering from minor back surgery

S. Hill
Matthew Stafford says he plans to play 16 (or more) games this season. We love his optimism -- both in that he believes he can stay healthy for the first time in his pro career and that there will be a full slate of games in 2011.

Not that the Lions are skeptical, but it’s safe to assume that they’re glad to have a reliable veteran backup like Shaun Hill. Hill, who started 10 games last season, recently had some injury issues of his own: back surgery. However, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that just six days removed from the procedure, Hill has already returned to offseason workouts with teammates (albeit on a limited basis).

“It’s kind of been bugging me for a while, but last year, (I) was able to get through the season,” Hill said. “I had a little injection before the season, and it helped me out and got me through it. This year, the injection didn’t quite help, so I opted for the surgery.”

Hill was told that if he’d had the procedure done during the season, he would have missed 4-6 weeks. He is currently jogging and expects to resume throwing soon.

This guy is a bad a$$.  Maybe the tuffest man in the game, or the most stuborn one I'm not quite sure.  The man plays through everything, broken arm and all.  I love this guy.  Miss him as a 49er.  Lions fans should be very proud to have him.  Good luck Shaun.
