Seahawks injury update: Red Bryant, Leroy Hill out of Wednesday practice

Joe Nicholson-US PRESSWIRE

The Seattle Seahawks saw two defensive players sit out of Wednesday's practice.

Defensive end Red Bryant and linebacker Leroy Hill missed Wednesday's practice for the Seattle Seahawks, according to reporter Curtis Crabtree.

Bryant is out with a plantar fasciitis injury, and head coach Pete Carroll said he wasn't sure if the defensive end would be able to go against the Chicago Bears this Sunday. If Bryant is held out of the game in Chicago, tackle Alan Branch is expected to move to Bryant's outside position, while tackle Greg Scruggs will take Branch's spot on the inside of the defensive line.

Bryant, in his fifth year out of Texas A&M, has 16 tackles this season.

Hill, who has 44 tackles and two sacks so far this year, is suffering from an ankle injury. He will likely be replaced by backup linebacker Malcolm Smith, a second-year pro out of USC. Smith has seven tackles this season for the Seahawks.

Guard James Carpenter is expected to practice on Wednesday.
