In Monday Night’s game against the Rams, The Seahawks had two significant players leave the game due to injury in the final minutes. LG Robert Gallery and Weakside linebacker LeRoy hill. Today we learned that both are “day-to-day” and participated in this morning’s walkthough.
Gallery was actually injured in the 2nd quarter, suffering what Pete Carroll referred to as a “hip stringer.” He played thought the until the Seahawks final position, when he was pulled because the coaches believed there was no further reason for him to risk additional injury. At that time, Jariel King came in and played LT, and Paul McQuistan moved inside to LG.
LeRoy Hill injured his knee on game team’s final defensive play, and required help to leave the field. Reports after the game were that he was walking around on it fine, but that it was sore.
Both players are expected to play Sunday in Chicago against the Bears.
In other roster news, the Seahawks activated WR Ricardo Lockette from the practice squad, and placed CB Ron Packer on injured reserve. Parker was a special teams player, and Lockette will likely only play on special teams as well. Lockette is one of the fastest players in the NFL. He was a track star in college, winning the national 200-meters.
