Seahawks' Hill Hits Another Bump in the Road

Posted: Updated:

RENTON, Wash. - Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill's rocky 2010 has hit another bump with news he's likely to be out until at least September with a sprained knee.

Coach Pete Carroll said after practice on Thursday that Hill is going to be out "a few weeks." Hill sprained the knee on Tuesday. The coach originally thought it was a minor injury.

Hill's troubled offseason had put his future with the Seahawks in doubt. Seattle's five-year starter got probation on a plea agreement for a marijuana charge in Georgia. The NFL suspended Hill for the Sept. 12 season opener for that. Hill also is facing a trial this month in Issaquah,Wash., on a charge of domestic violence against his girlfriend.
