Leroy Hill practiced fully today and will be ready to play this Sunday against the Denver Broncos. Hill also loved attending this past Sunday’s game when the Seahawks punded the 49ers. Problem is, he was suspended for that game. NFL rules state that when a player is suspended for any game in the season, that player cannot attend the game. The Seahawks knew Hill was there and did nothing to stop him.
Pete Carroll addressed the issue today with reporters. Carroll stated that:
“I didn’t know what the rule was on that one, and I didn’t tell him,” Carroll said. “So what he did, he did on his own. But we should have been able to let him know what was going on. We just didn’t tell him. So he showed up. He was there but I didn’t see him around. The rule says a guy that’s suspended isn’t supposed to be at the stadium. And so I didn’t know that. We found out the hard way.”
