Seahawks place Jason Jones on injured reserve

The Seahawks will be down a member of their defensive line rotation for Sunday’s game against the 49ers.

And for as many games as they play after that one as well. The team has placed defensive lineman Jason Jones on injured reserve. The exact injury wasn’t disclosed, but Jones had knee surgery before the season and was listed as having missed practice because of his knee on Wednesday so we’ll go with that as the reason for his season getting cut short.

Jones, who signed with the team as a free agent before the season after spending his first four seasons with the Titans. Jones did his best work on passing downs this year and had three sacks before being shut down for the season. His loss comes while the status of starting defensive tackle Alan Branch is still up in the air for this week because of an ankle injury that kept him out of practice on Wednesday.

The Seahawks promoted defensive tackle Hebron Fangupo from the practice squad to take Jones’ place on the roster. Fangupo and rookie Jaye Howard, who has played one game this year, could be pressed into action if the Seahawks are missing Branch as they try to stop the 49ers from winning their second straight division title.

    Jason Jones is a decent lineman. He isn’t fast enough for DE and not strong enough for DT. On 3rd downs he wouldn’t get the push up the middle at times which hurt both Clemons and Irvin who are getting it from the outside. I think its terrible scheme to only rush 3 people on 3rd and long every time. Like to see them keep Mebane in for 3rd down, he has been having a great year.

    The hawks have great depth this year and a great coaching staff so we should be ok

    Apparently if you call out the management on this site for unfairly calling out others then you become persona non grata.

    How Proffessional

    Jones was an interior line pass rush specialist. Talk about a specialized specialist. How many teams have a dedicated dime-package DT anyway? All he ever did was run stunts and delayed twists. Ever. EVER.

    That’s the kind of move that’s effective once, then the OL knows to look for it and you’re just one more guy not getting any push.
