Hill, out with a groin injury, spent Seattle's third defensive series of the first quarter on a training table having his left leg checked by doctors. Hill didn't return, and Will Herring, usually a special-teamer, replaced him.
Tatupu left with a hamstring injury in the third quarter, after Seattle had built a 21-0 lead. Tatupu didn't return, but the defensive captain spent a few minutes riding a stationary bike behind the Seahawks' bench.
Mora left no reason to believe Hill or Tatupu won't play next week at San Francisco.
"We were playing it safe at that point, especially with Lofa," Mora said of keeping Hill and Tatupu out with the big lead.
