Seahawks place three on injured reserve on way to 75 players

The Seahawks released a pair of veteran players on Monday to start moving toward 75 players and got the rest of the way there on Tuesday with three more vets hitting injured reserve as part of the culling.

Cornerback A.J. Jefferson, linebacker Heath Farwell and guard C.J. Davis have all been placed on injured reserve. Jefferson, who played with the Cardinals and Vikings before coming to Seattle, injured his ankle during training camp while core special teamer Farwell is likely headed for surgery after injuring his groin. Davis hurt his calf in the preseason game against the Broncos.

The team also placed cornerback Eric Pinkins on the non-football injury list. Pinkins, a sixth-round pick battling a Lisfranc injury, will miss at least the first six weeks of the season.

Defensive tackle Michael Brooks, wide receiver David Gilreath and linebacker Horace Miller were all waived-injured to complete Seattle’s pre-deadline moves.

    Farwell should probably consider transitioning to coaching after this season.

    Farwell is very unfortunate, he was an under-the-radar key player. But Brock Coyle showed almost-veteran control of the defense this preseason, and said he loves special teams cuz he gets to run fast and hit hard. I was a little worried that Coyle might not make the final 53, but instead it’s now time for him to step up.

    The Seahawks are so good even their injured players will blow out Denver Broncos.

    Heath Farwell will be a natural to go into coaching. A great special teams leader. We appreciate all he did for us!

    Go Hawks!

    and so goes the play by play…3rd and 9, Broncos’ Moreno 10 yards down field in the flat…and it’s Manning, under relentless pressure, again by Avril from left end….Manning, arm back, prepares to throw….now Avril, forcing thru Bronco blockers….LEAPS, hitting Manning’s elbow, at the last possible second….The ball’s tumbling in the air…downfield towards Moreno……uh-ohhhhh, it’s SMITH dropping coverage….running right past Moreno…. as if he’d been frozen in time….SMITH…. intercepts the pass…..It’s SMITH….he’s at the 40, the 50, the 35…..the 20….there’s not a Broncos player within 10 yards of him….SMITH – SCORES!!!!!!! And the demise of the Denver Broncos continues…. only minutes from the half, they’re down 22-0….

    A moment in time, forever etched into the memories of 12’s ev’where…..Ahhhhh man, what a fun time it wuzzzzz.

    Much luv to FARWELL, hope he comes back if not with us someone else. He’s got good leadership and is a good football player.

    My goodness, just thinking how bizarre Seahawks fans would get after winning two or three titles is hard to imagine. They are going totally nuts over ONE. But then not to worry, if and by the time they did win one or two more all these nutty “12” will be ghosts and distant memories of their current infant sons and daughters.
