The Nashville Tennessean believes "it wouldn’t be surprising" to see the Titans move on from contract-year NT Sammie Lee Hill.

Hill was slowed by an MCL injury to open the season, missing the first six games. He's been reduced to a part-time role, playing 44 snaps over the last three weeks. The Titans reportedly prefer Al Woods to Hill. Entering his age-30 season, Hill will likely have to settle for veteran-minimum offers.

Titans NT Sammie Lee Hill (knee) has been ruled out for Week 5.

Slow to recover from MCL surgery, Hill has yet to play a snap this season. Al Woods and rookie Angelo Blackson have been filling in at nose tackle.

Titans NT Sammie Lee Hill is undergoing MCL surgery and will miss at least the first three games of the season.

The Titans hope their starting nose tackle will return following their Week 4 bye. Hill was an ineffective run stuffer a year ago, but his loss hurts Tennessee's depth and will force utilityman Al Woods into a full-time role. The Titans' run defense will likely be among the league's worst again in 2015.

Titans NT Sammie Lee Hill re-injured his knee ahead of last Friday's third preseason game and may need surgery.

Hill opened camp on the active/PUP list after spraining his knee at OTAs. Warming up for Tennessee's third preseason game, he re-injured himself, but believes the two issues are unrelated. Hill thinks his latest injury is to his meniscus.

Titans activated NT Sammie Lee Hill (knee) from the active/PUP list.

Hill suffered a knee sprain during May OTAs and is just getting back to 100 percent. He should be fine to start in the belly of a weak Titans defense.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Friday that NT Sammie Lee Hill's knee injury could sideline him for "weeks" of training camp.

Hill suffered the injury at May OTAs. It was thought to be minor at the time, but clearly wasn't. Hill, 28, graded out 60th among 81 qualifiers in PFF's defensive tackle grades last season. The Titans will likely have a sorry run defense again this year with Hill slated to open the season at nose tackle.

Titans NT Sammie Lee Hill is only dealing with a knee sprain.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Hill won't require surgery. Hill could be shut down for the remainder of OTAs, but isn't in danger of missing training camp.
Wed, May 27, 2015 06:48:00 PM

Titans NT Sammie Lee Hill will undergo an MRI after tweaking his knee in OTAs.

Hill made 15 starts last season, but was largely ineffective. He turns 29 in November. The seriousness of Hill's injury will be determined by the MRI.

Titans NT Sammie Hill is being investigated by the Atlanta Police Department after a woman accused him of sexual assault.

There are few other details, but the 37-year-old woman filed a report to the Houston Police Department, who then passed it to the Atlanta PD because that's where the alleged crime took place. Hill, 28, has started 12-of-13 games for the Titans, but is a big part of their atrocious run defense. He'll be a candidate for release in the offseason due to a $3.8 million salary in the final year of his deal.

Sammie Lee Hill is practicing as the starting nose tackle at Titans camp.

Rookie Da'Quan Jones is working as the No. 2, while Al Woods projects as the Titans' top reserve at all three defensive line positions. An ineffective run defender last year per Pro Football Focus, Hill has long been more comfortable shooting gaps than containing despite his 328-pound frame. The Titans will struggle in run defense this year. They face Jamaal Charles in Week 1.

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.
Mon, Sep 16, 2013 01:51:00 PM

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.
Tue, Aug 20, 2013 05:51:00 PM

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

"With (our) personnel ... we can go out there and maybe play 8-10 snaps per 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, while fellow new additions Ropati Pitoitua and Moise Fokou both have extensive 3-4 experience.
Wed, Apr 3, 2013 07:01:00 PM

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 329-pound defensive tackle, but has always been better at creating pressure than plugging gaps. To date, the Titans have had a curious offseason to put it kindly.
