Seahawks Place S Delano Hill On IR

The Seahawks will be down one of their top backups the rest of the way. They placed safety Delano Hill on IR on Tuesday.

Hill started two games in relief of Tedric Thompson, with Seattle shifting Bradley McDougald from strong to free safety in those contests. Hill suffered a non-displaced fracture in his hip during the Seahawks’ Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Seattle entered the season with a quartet of Earl Thomas, McDougald, Thompson and Hill at safety. Going into the team’s trip to Dallas, it is now down to the McDougald-Thompson tandem. Trade acquisition Shalom Luani and Maurice Alexander are the other safeties on Seattle’s roster.

A third-round pick in 2017, Hill played 321 snaps this season. He made 24 tackles. The Seahawks promoted wide receiver Malik Turner from their practice squad to fill the roster spot.

      Dak is terrible and he’s gonna flub it worse than Romo did when these teams last met in playoffs! Hawks win 31-20!

  1. Since Prescott entered the NFL only Tom Brady has more wins than Prescott as a starting qb. He also has the most game winning drives in the NFL since entering the league. So….uh….there’s that.

  2. Google “Prescott has knack for flashing brilliance when needed most” if you question these facts.

    Helps to have a RB who averaged a 4.66 YPC rate during the 40/48 games that Dak started (exceeding 100+ yards rushing in 20 of those games — 50%). Few QBs can boost of such a complementary offensive force both in RB and obviously their offensive line.

    Umm, have you not looked at russel Wilson’s 4th quarter stats and his winning percentage.. and his rings

    Home field advantage is no joke… but having a really good running game makes this a toss up in my opinion
