League suspends Seahawks LB Hill for one game

Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill has been suspended for one game and fined one additional paycheck for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

The league announced the punishment on Monday. Hill will be able to serve the punishment despite being on injured reserve. Hill was placed on injured reserve last week with an Achilles' injury that will require surgery.

Hill was previously suspended for the season opener following his arrest on a marijuana possession charge in Georgia. Earlier this spring, Hill was arrested in suburban Seattle on a domestic violence charge.

He entered into a stipulated order of continuance at a hearing on his misdemeanor charge of fourth degree assault/domestic violence.

Hill was injured early in Seattle's loss at Denver two weeks ago.
