News on safety Lano Hill’s health has not been encouraging, so the Seattle Seahawks have elevated Damarious Randall from the practice squad to the active roster.

Unsurprisingly, Hill is now on injured reserve after Pete Carroll hinted at it on Monday when he said that Lano’s back issues weren’t going away. That means both of Seattle’s original backup safeties are on the mend, with Marquise Blair definitely done for the season after tearing his ACL.

Formerly with the Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns, Randall was signed a few weeks ago as safety depth and he was elevated to the active roster when the team played the Miami Dolphins. It’s safe to say that Randall and Ryan Neal are the next men up in the long-term. There’s no word on if Jamal Adams will return this weekend but if he can’t go then we know Neal, who has been a pleasant surprise, will get the start again versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Other news concerning the roster includes the Seahawks signing Mychal Kendricks back, albeit on the practice squad. They also signed veteran linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong to fill Randall’s vacated spot on the practice squad. Having two linebackers on the PS is something worth monitoring as Jordyn Brooks looks to return to action after missing time with a sprained knee.
