Sammie Hill DL TEN 2 months ago

Hill (knee) will remain out until training camp, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

Hill suffered the injury near the end of last month, and team is yet to reveal any details. While it doesn't look to be a ligament tear, it's significant enough that Hill will be held out of action until camp.

Hill (hamstring) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Steelers, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

Hill's return is a boost to the Titans' defensive line, but with 18 tackles and two sacks in eight games, his IDP impact has been modest.

Hill (hamstring) is questionable for Monday's game against the Steelers, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.

An earlier report indicated Hill would likely make his return, but apparently that's not quite a sure thing. He has 18 tackles (12 solo), two sacks and five passes defensed in eight games this season, and he last played in Week 8 against the Texans.

Hill (hamstring) is officially inactive for Sunday's game at Baltimore.

Hill, who has 18 total tackles and two sacks on the year, is probably not much of an IDP anyway.

Titans DT Sammie Lee Hill suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's loss, and is doubtful for Week 3.

The Titans didn't come out and say it, but the media reports suggest Hill is highly unlikely to play against the Chargers. Rotating in off the bench, Hill has two tackles through two games. He's played 26 snaps.

Titans DT Sammie Lee Hill will miss Saturday's preseason game with an elbow injury, and is dealing with "ligament damage."

Hill is expected to be ready for Week 1, but will wear a brace. Hill is ticketed for an every-down role after playing just 419 snaps for the Lions last season.

DC Jerry Gray says the Titans may feature more 3-4 looks in 2013, but will stick with a 4-3 base defense.

"I think with the personnel (we have), it gives us a possibility to do more of that, to where we can go out there and maybe play 8-10 snaps of game (in the 3-4) and not have to take our good football players off the field," Gray said. New DT Sammie Lee Hill has the bulk to play nose tackle in 3-4 looks, while fellow new additions Ropati Pitoitua and Moise Fokou both have extensive experience in 3-4 schemes.

The Titans view new DT Sammie Lee Hill as a three-down player.

Hill played just 419 snaps for the Lions last season, and only 437 in 2011. The Titans also view Hill as more of a run-stuffer than pass rusher. Hill is a defensive tackle, but has always been better at creating pressure than plugging gaps. To date, the Titans have had a curious offseason.
