Seahawks DT Hill has strained biceps

CURTIS CRABTREE, Associated Press

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said defensive tackle Jordan Hill has a strained biceps suffered during practice on Tuesday.

Carroll said they are treating it as a day-to-day injury at this stage. Hill will not play against the Green Bay Packers on Friday night.

Defensive tackle Jesse Williams, receiver Sidney Rice and guard James Carpenter are also expected to miss the game with injuries.

Carpenter is recovering from a foot injury and Carroll said he hopes Carpenter will be able to play in Seattle’s preseason finale against the Oakland Raiders.

Fullback Michael Robinson also will not play. He has been ill this week.
