Hill (undisclosed) was placed on IR Sunday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Hill had reportedly been having a strong camp which makes the injury designation sting that much worse. The Lions haven't publicly stated what Hill's dealing with, but we should know relatively sooner than later. With Hill out, Jeremiah Ledbetter and Ego Ferguson figure to climb up the depth chart.
Hill, a third-round pick in 2013, split time last season between the Seahawks, Jaguars and Redskins, making four appearances in total. Although his career numbers are mostly underwhelming, the defensive tackle posted 5.5 sacks in 2014, and will look to regain similar form in Detroit.
Hill was held out of practice all week and will be missing his second straight game due to his calf injury. Sen'Derrick Marks and Sheldon Day figure to see extra snaps once again with Hill out.
Hill has been ruled out of Saturday's contest against the Texans due to a calf injury.
Hill hasn't practiced all week after injuring his calf in Week 15. The severity of his injury remains unclear and his status for Week 17 is uncertain as well. Sen'Derrick Marks and Sheldon Day may see some extra time with Hill sidelined.
