Seattle Seahawks Injury Status: Linebacker

Aaron Curry: Listed because he's a rookie, Curry has no injury history of note.

David Hawthorne: Hawthorne injured his right calf against the Eagles and missed the next two weeks.

Will Herring: Herring battled an illness that caused swelling in his joints. Seattle activated Herring before week seven and he played in the remaining 11 games, starting one.

Leroy Hill: Hill missed the final four games of the season with a neck stinger he suffered against the Cowboys. A neck stinger occurs when "either the head and neck are forced toward the shoulder, compressing the nerves that lead from the spinal cord to that arm, or the head and neck are forced away from the shoulder, stretching those nerves" and "is characterized by a shooting or stinging pain that travels down one arm, followed by numbness and weakness." Hill appeared on the NFL injury report as "probable" in week six, because of soreness in his knee. He is healthy and fully participated in camp.

Lofa Tatupu: Tatupu badly bruised his knee in week three of the preseason. At the time the diagnosis was a relief, but a bone bruise is painful and can linger for months. Tatupu was listed as probable for the first two weeks of the season. He broke his thumb against Buffalo and didn't have surgery to repair it until January. As of April 9, 2009, he was still wearing a cast. In week seven at Tampa Bay, Tatupu suffered a concussion in the second quarter and missed the remainder of the game. He played in week eight against San Francisco, but was again forced out of action in the first half. This time Tatupu suffered a strained groin. Tatupu appeared as "questionable" in week nine and didn't play against the Philadelphia Eagles. It was the first missed game of his career. Tatupu was "probable" for weeks 10 and 11. He did not appear again on the injury report or miss further action.

Lofa Tatupu is healthy and fully participated in mini camp.
