RENTON, Wash. (AP) – Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said defensive tackle Jordan Hill has a strained biceps suffered during practice Tuesday. Carroll said they are treating it as a day-to-day injury at this stage. Hill will not play against the Green Bay Packers tonight. Defensive tackle Jesse Williams, receiver Sidney Rice and guard James Carpenter are also expected to miss the game with injuries. Carpenter is recovering from a foot injury. Fullback Michael Robinson also won’t play. He’s been ill.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – Packers safety M.D. Jennings has more pressing matters on his mind than recalling the last play in last year’s game against the Seahawks. But the infamous call by replacement referees on Golden Tate’s disputed touchdown promises to be replayed over and over with Seattle visiting Green Bay for a preseason game tonight. It’s the first meeting between the teams since last September’s regular-season contest. The call turned into the tipping point to bring regular NFL officials back.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) – The Little League World Series game between Northwest champion Sammamish, Wash., and New England champion Westport, Conn., has been rescheduled for today. Little League officials made the ruling last night after a thunderstorm halted play for more than an hour in the game between Mexico and Panama for a berth in the international final on Saturday against Japan.
