HARRISBURG -- Seattle Seahawks rookie defensive tackle Jordan Hill, of Steelton, has a partially torn biceps muscle and will miss approximately 3-6 weeks of action, CBS 21 News Sports Director Jason Bristol has learned.
Hill's injury was believed to be much more serious, but an MRI taken was negative for a complete tear and he will not require surgery, according to a source with knowledge of the injury.
The Seahawks have yet to announce the injury. A team spokesman could not be reached for comment.
Bristol was the first to report Hill's injury via Twitter.
Hill, a graduate of Steel-High and Penn State, was selected by Seattle in the third round of the 2013 NFL draft.
Hill has been impressive in his first training camp. Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn said Hill "jumped off the tape in terms of making some plays" in the team's preseason opener against San Diego, a 31-10 victory on August 8.
