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.
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.
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.
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.
Hill upgraded from limited to full during the practice week, giving him a good chance to suit up in Week 10 after sitting out Week 9.
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.
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.
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.
Hill (elbow) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Hill's going to be bumped down to a reserve role after the Seahawks acquired Quinton Diggs (hamstring) via trade from the Lions and Marquise Blair showed promise as a starter in Week 7. However, Bradley McDougald (back) and Diggs are both questionable, so Hill's depth could've been handy.
Hill (elbow) is unlikely to play Sunday according to head coach Pete Carroll, Curtis Crabtree of KJR reports.
Looks like Hill is on track to miss his second straight contest as he continues to deal with an elbow injury. Expect Marquise Blair to continue to see an uptick in snaps given Hill's absence.
Hill will not play in Sunday's game against the Ravens due to an elbow injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
Hill's absence means Marquise Blair and Ugo Amadi could see a relatively healthy workload providing depth at safety. That's especially true if Bradley McDougald (back) ultimately gets ruled out.
Hill is expected to start at one of the safety positions for Sunday's game against the Steelers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Though it wasn't officially announced, Hill is expected to start due to Tedric Thompson (hamstring) being officially listed as inactive. With Thompson coming off a relativity poor showing in Week 1, this could be a great chance for Hill to cement himself with a larger role in the defense going forward.
Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that there will be a competition for the free safety spot opposite Bradley McDougald and that Hill "deserves a shot," Jessamyn McIntyre of ESPN Seattle reports.
Hill didn't see the field for any of Seattle's defensive snaps in Sunday's season-opening win over the Bengals. The 23-year-old was present for all 23 of the special teams' plays, but he was unable to record a statistic.
Hill (hip) was removed from the PUP list and was spotted participating in conditioning drills Monday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Hill was placed on the PUP list July 24 due to a hip issue, though he's since passed his physical and has been given the green light to return to practice. He's expected to resume football drills shortly, per Condotta.
Head coach Pete Carroll said Sunday that Hill is out at least "another couple of weeks," Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
It was assumed that Hill would be ready for training camp following a hip injury he suffered in Week 17 of last season, but his absence will stretch into August. It's still unclear whether the Michigan product suffered a setback. A return to the field sooner rather than later would only help his chances to make the 53-man roster. The team signed DeShawn Shead on Sunday to make up for a few injuries currently facing its secondary.
The Seahawks placed Hill (hip) on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
Head coach Pete Carroll relayed earlier in the week that Hill should be ready to go for the beginning of camp, but that will not be the case. It's unclear if he suffered a setback or the Seahawks are simply exercising caution here. Hill is not a lock for the team's final 53-man roster, so a return sooner rather than later will be beneficial for his chances.
Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Hill (hip) should be ready to go for training camp, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Hill started two of 13 games for the Seahawks during the 2018 regular season but was unable to suit up in the playoffs due to the hip injury he suffered in Week 17. It's not clear if he required surgery this offseason. In any case, the 2017 third-round pick will need to fight for playing time ahead of the 2019 campaign. The Seahawks will return starters Bradley McDougald and Tedric Thompson at safety and bolstered their depth at the position with the selections of Marquise Blair (second round) and Ugo Amadi (fourth) in April's draft.
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 nondisplaced 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 (quadriceps) was listed as a full practice participant Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
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.
