09/28/15 - With Brandon Mebane exiting the game in the first quarter due to a groin strain, the Seahawks had to turn to Jordan Hill at nose tackle for the remainder of the game.
Hill played well in relief of Mebane. He helped the Seahawks disrupt the Bears rushing attack and finished with four tackles in the game, two behind the line of scrimmage.
The former third-round pick started to show up weekly for Seattle toward the end of last season. He racked up 5.5 sacks in the team's final six games of the regular season as the Seahawks won all six games to claim the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs. Hill missed the entire postseason after injuring his calf working out before the team's playoff opener against Carolina.
"He's come back and is getting after it in the running game as well here chasing the football and making hits in the backfield and all," coach Pete Carroll said. "That's a real plus for us."
Hill would likely get the start this week against Detroit if Mebane is unable to recover by Monday night.
