Leroy Hill Suspended One Game

As several reports have indicated, linebacker Leroy Hill has been suspended for the season opener against San Francisco.

Considering Hill’s situation, a one-game suspension is quite minimal. Leroy Hill and the Seattle Seahawks should feel very good about the punishment.

Hill will be allowed to participate in exhibition games, but the Seahawks can place him on the reserve/suspended list when the roster must be trimmed. In other words, the Seahawks can carry an additional player into the first week of the regular season without dumping Hill.

Now we just have to cross our fingers and hope Hill can stay out of trouble.

    Just pointing out that Leroy Hill has been suspended for one game as a result of his first incident, the one involving him falling asleep stoned in his vehicle at a traffic light. The league has yet to penalize Hill for the domestic violent charges. Probably won’t happen till next season.

      Correct. The suspension is for violating the league’s Substance Abuse Policy, stemming from his guilty plea for marijuana possession last April.

      In my opinion, it is still rather light punishment. Hill should be pleased the league didn’t come down harder.

      Further punishment is still possible for Hill’s poor conduct off the field (domestic violence charges).
