Defensive tackle Jordan Hill was unable to finish practice with the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday after suffering an apparent injury. Head coach Pete Carroll said afterward that Hill hurt his arm and they needed to wait and see the extent of the injury.
According to Jason Bristol of CBS 21 News in Harrisburg, Pa., Hill could miss 3-6 weeks with a partially torn biceps.
An MRI reportedly was negative for a complete tear and will not require surgery.
Hill was selected by the Seahawks in the third round of April’s NFL Draft out of Penn State. Hill was in the running to possibly start alongside Brandon Mebane in the Seahawks’ base defense. If he is out at least three weeks, he will not be available for the start of the regular season with the Seahawks travel to face the Carolina Panthers on Sept. 8.
