Hill suffered a hip injury during Sunday's game versus the Cardinals and was placed on injured reserve, effectively ending his season, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Coach Pete Carroll said Hill has a non-displaced fracture in his hip. Hill started the last two games of the season and Carroll praised the second-year pro for his performance in that span. With Hill on the shelf, the Seahawks will need free safety Bradley McDougald (knee) to shake his injury quickly before Saturday's wild-card game versus the Cowboys.
Hill improve to full participation after being limited in practice Wednesday. The Seahawks did not actually practice Thursday, but Hill's designation as a full participant nonetheless indicates that he's fully recovered from his lingering quadriceps issue. Expect the second-year pro to play his usual role as a rotational member of Seattle's secondary during Sunday's tilt against the Panthers.
Hill (quadriceps) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Packers.
Hill was limited in practice throughout the week due to a knee injury and will remain sidelined Thursday and he manages his recovery. As long as Hill remains sidelined, Shalom Luani will serve as the primary backup to Bradley McDougald and could receive an uptick in defensive snaps.
Hill is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Hill will suit up as a backup free safety and special teams player. Expect the second-year player to see most of his snaps on special teams.
Hill (hamstring) is inactive for Week 2 action against Chicago.
The news of Hill's inactive status comes as little surprise given his doubtful designation leading up to Monday. Mainly a depth component to the defense, Hill's absence is unlikely to alter Seattle's defensive game plan.
