Shaun Hill undergoes minor foot surgery

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Lions quarterback Shaun Hill had surgery to repair a foot injury.

Detroit Lions quarterback Shaun Hill is currently wearing a boot on his left foot, according to Dave Birkett. This is because Hill had minor foot surgery to repair a "nagging injury." It's unclear what exactly was wrong with Hill's foot, but it doesn't sound like a serious issue.

The fact that Hill expects to participate in at least some aspect of the Lions' OTAs is a good sign. They start next week and run through June 7. The Lions also have a mandatory minicamp from June 11-13.

The main thing here is for Hill, who backs up Matthew Stafford, to be healthy by the time training camp rolls around. In the meantime, it's not the worst thing in the world if guys like Kellen Moore and Alex Carder get extra reps during the OTAs if Hill isn't 100 percent healthy. Hill has been in the league long enough to know what it takes to get ready for the season, and I wouldn't expect this surgery to be an issue going forward.
