Top Lano Hill News

  • Lano Hill: Cut by Carolina

    Hill was released by the Panthers on Wednesday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    The safety played in only two games for the Seahawks last season, recording 10 tackles before a back injury ended his season. He never really got a chance to prove himself with Panthers, as a COVID-19 designation forced him out practice right when training camp began. Carolina activated Hill from the reserve/COVID-19 list before cutting him, though, so he enters free agency with a clean bill of health.

  • Panthers' Delano Hill: Moved to COVID-19 list

    The Panthers placed Hill on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

    Hill appeared in two games for the Seahawks last season, tallying 10 tackles before going down with a back injury. The fifth-year safety also resides on the PUP list, so he'll need to recover from the physical concern in addition to clearing COVID-19 protocols before getting the green light to practice with Carolina.

  • Panthers' Lano Hill: Signs with Carolina

    Hill (back) is signing with the Panthers, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

    Hill has recovered from the back injury that ended his 2020 campaign in Seattle. The 2017 third-round pick suited up in 42 games for Seattle, starting six.

  • Seahawks' Lano Hill: Shifts to IR

    The Seahawks placed Hill (back) on injured reserve Wednesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

    Hill has already missed three games with this back injury, and now that he's on IR, he'll be required to miss three more. The Seahawks signed 2015 first-round pick Damarious Randall off the practice squad in a corresponding move to add depth behind starters Jamal Adams (groin) and Quandre Diggs. Hill will be eligible to return Week 10 against the Rams.

  • Seahawks' Lano Hill: Could land on IR

    Coach Pete Carroll indicated Monday that Hill (back) could potentially end up on injured reserve soon, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Hill has missed the last two games with a lingering back issue. It remains unclear when he will be able to return, which has the Seahawks considering a placement on IR. More clarity on his situation should come as the week goes on.

  • Seahawks' Lano Hill: Out for SNF

    Hill (back) has been ruled out for the Seahawks' Sunday night matchup against the Vikings.

    The 24-year-old safety fielded 85 percent of the defensive workload during Seattle's Week 2 win over the Patriots, but he's been beleaguered by a back injury since that point and unable to return to game action. Hill's absence becomes even more impactful for Sunday night because Jamal Adams (groin) has also been ruled out for the matchup against the Vikings. Seattle is the NFL's 32nd-ranked pass defense -- with nearly 60 more passing yards allowed per game than any other team (401). The unit is expected to have Ryan Neal in place as its starting free safety against Minnesota, with Adams and Hill inactive.

  • Seahawks' Lano Hill: Questionable versus Minnesota

    Hill (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    The 24-year-old has been sidelined by the back injury since Week 2, but he may be able to retake the field this weekend. Jamal Adams (groin) was already ruled out, so if Hill is available he could receive the start Sunday.

  • Seahawks' Lano Hill: Not suiting up Sunday

    Hill (back) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

    Hill didn't practice all week after suiting up as a limited participant for Wednesday's walk-through, so this news isn't surprising. With Hill sidelined for Week 4, look for Ryan Neal to draw the start at safety alongside Quandre Diggs.

  • Seahawks' Lano Hill: Questionable for Sunday

    Hill (back) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Hill hasn't practiced since Wednesday when he was a limited participant during the team's walk-through. It appears he's trending in the wrong direction, and with Jamal Adams (groin) already ruled out, expect Ryan Neal to start at safety alongside Quandre Diggs.

  • Seahawks' Lano Hill: Still bothered by back injury

    Hill (back) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Hill was inactive for Week 3's win over the Cowboys due to a back issue, and it's still bothering him to start the practice week. With Jamal Adams (groin) trending in the wrong direction ahead of Sunday's game versus the Dolphins, if Hill can shake off the injury, he'll likely start at strong safety.

  • Seahawks' Lano Hill: Dealing with back issue

    Coach Pete Carroll said after Sunday's win over the Cowboys that Hill is nursing a back issue, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

    Carroll specifically noted that Hill, who was inactive Sunday, woke up with a back injury. The fourth-year pro played 85 percent of snaps in Week 2, and Jamal Adams (groin) was forced out versus the Cowboys due to an injury, so Hill could have an opportunity to handle significant defensive snaps Week 4 if he's able to get healthy.

  • Seahawks' Delano Hill: Makes four starts in 2019

    Hill recorded 25 tackles over 12 regular-season appearances in 2019.

    During his third professional season, Hill started four games due to injuries to other playesr in the secondary. However, he logged double-digit defensive snaps in just two of the other eight games in which he didn't start. The main reason for his limited usage was the Seahawks' pickup of Quandre Diggs via trade, but it's a positive sign that Hill started over Marquise Blair during the final three weeks of the season while Diggs was hurt. Diggs and Bradley McDougald are in line to serve as Seattle's safety tandem in 2020, so Hill will compete with Blair and Tedric Thompson (shoulder) for reserve reps next year.

  • Seahawks' Delano Hill: Expected starter Sunday

    Hill is expected to start at free safety if Quandre Diggs' (ankle) can't play Sunday against the Cardinals, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    When Diggs left Week 15's win over the Panthers with a high-ankle sprain, Hill took over at free safety, playing 43 defensive snaps and recording five tackles. Hill started two games this year already, and while he's less rangy than Diggs, the 2017 third-round pick is a worthy placeholder.

  • Seahawks' Delano Hill: Full speed ahead

    Hill (elbow) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Hill leveraged the bye week to help him return from a four-game hiatus. The third-year pro likely will work in a rotational safety role behind starter's Bradley McDougald and Quandre Diggs.

  • Seahawks' Delano Hill: No-go for MNF

    Hill (elbow) is officially inactive for Monday's game against the 49ers.

    Hill has missed the past three games while tending to the elbow injury, and as evidenced by this news, he isn't quite ready to return to the lineup. In his stead, Quandre Diggs (hamstring) will make his Seahawks debut and man a depth role at the strong safety position.

    Hill (elbow) is officially listed as questionable for Monday's game against the 49ers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

  • Seahawks' Delano Hill: Full go at Friday's practice

    Hill (elbow) was a full participant at Friday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Hill has missed the Seahawks' past three games with a lingering elbow injury but looks primed to return to the field in Week 10. He will provide depth in the Seahawks' secondary and could play a key role on special teams as well.

  • Seahawks' Delano Hill: Sitting out Sunday

    Hill (elbow) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

    With Hill's absence along with Tedric Thompson's (shoulder) placement on injured reserve, the Seahawks only have three healthy safeties. Bradley McDougald and Marquise Blair are in line for the starting duties and figure to garner every-snap roles.

  • Seahawks' Delano Hill: Doubtful for Week 9

    Hill (elbow) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

    Hill is likely to miss his third straight game with the issue. As a result, the Seahawks will continue to lack depth in their secondary and on special teams.
