Jordan Hill placed on injured reserve, Steven Terrell signed to active roster

Seahawks defensive tackle Jordan Hill suffered a severe injury to his calf this past weekend, Pete Carroll reported today at his presser, and according to Dave "Softy" Mahler, a source indicates that it's a torn calf. The injury will end his season.

UPDATE: The Seahawks placed Hill on the IR, activating S Steven Terrell to the 53-man roster and signing Jimmy Staten back to the practice squad.

Hill had come on very strong of late, and finished the season with 5.5 sacks as the Seahawks' primary nickel pass rusher. Filling his role now will likely be a combination of DeMarcus Dobbs, who is now healthy, and Landon Cohen, who was signed yesterday. Softy talked to Cohen today, and he said that he's been out of football since September but has been parking cars for his valet service and doing jujitsu to stay in shape.

The Seahawks are otherwise pretty healthy. Pete Carroll said the only other player that won't be able to go on Saturday is Jeron Johnson, who dislocated his elbow against the Rams. Tharold Simon, Max Unger, and Jermaine Kearse are all expected back, which is great news for Seattle.
