Coach Mora announced on ESPN 710 that Leroy Hill will miss the next two weeks with a strain in his groin or abdominal area. Will Herring will fill in during Hill's absence. Herring is a good cover linebacker and a little age and a lot of conditioning have allowed him to bulk up his safety frame into a respectable, Tampa 2-style linebacker frame. Think Cato June. Herring will need assistance to sustain tackles, but if Sunday was the standard, swarming to the ball is creed, not suggestion.
During the same press conference, Mora announced Derek Walker has been released to make room for D.D. Lewis.
