Defensive end Chris Clemons wasn’t the only member of the Seahawks to pick up an injury in Sunday’s victory over the Redskins.
Kicker Steven Hauschka injured his left calf during the game, which limited him to extra points and field goals while punter Jon Ryan handled kickoffs. Ryan was also practicing field goals at one point on the sideline although the Seahawks never had to give him a try as Hauschka was able to make all the kicks he tried.
According to Ed Werder of ESPN, that the team is taking steps to make sure they’re covered in the event Hauschka can’t kick against the Falcons next weekend. Werder reports that Ryan Longwell and Neil Rackers are among the group of kickers that will be trying out for the Seahawks this week as the team lines up other options.
Hauschka hit 24-of-27 field goals and 46-of-48 extra points (both misses were blocked) this season.
