With Christine Michael injured, Seahawks bring back a back

We knew the Seahawks performed the man-bites-dog act of claiming a Jaguars player last night, but a new injury forced another move today.

The team announced the re-signing of running back Demetrius Bronson and the waiver claim of center Patrick Lewis today, and the release of linebacker Marcus Dowtin and guard Greg Van Roten.

Bronson was cut Monday, but they needed him back after running back Christine Michael tweaked his hamstring in practice Tuesday. As a result, he isn’t expected to play in the preseason finale tomorrow night.

And more than likely, Bronson will find his name in the transactions again soon, but not before he gets a last chance to make an impression — on the Seahawks or someone else.

  1. The Steelers are Marching and the world cowers. The three rivers were made from your tears and we build boats. We build lots of boats. We walk beside pristine trophy cases and engraved gold. They say it's lonely at the top, but we sure like the view. says: Aug 27, 2014 4:30 PM

    A boy named Christine? Someone was listening to Johnny Cash.

    LOL – Did you think of that all by yourself?

    Aside from the one dropped pass, Bronson looked pretty good. He is running into a numbers game at RB, though, with Lynch, Turbin, Michael, and Ware all ahead of him.

    Green Bay could be interested in bringing Van Roten back, at least for a couple of days of debriefing.

    How did she get hurt? Fall off the pyramid?

    Van Roten will get signed within 24 hours

    Too bad. Michael was one of the few reasons to watch the final preseason game. Hopefully it’s just a tweak and nothing serious. Bronson has actually been pretty good in the preseason so it’ll be good for him to get another night to audition.

    Bronson will end up on the practice squad.

    Bronson’s not bad…not Christine, but he’s still a decent RB

    If Lynch played at half beast mode, he would still own the position, with a respectful nod to Frank Gore, who is the only other player close to his caliber, Adrian will be done by week 4, kinda hard to carry the Viking floaties by yourself.

    Bring back a back to the back

    AP has more than enough HGH stored in his hump to get to 8 games, don’t sell him short.

    All the “Christine” name jokes will be even funnier when C-Mike is running over your teams defense after Beastmode retires. But, the funniest part is when u see him this year in the 4th quarter as a mop-up back when your team plays the Hawks. So funny.

    i don’t know…I’m a hawks fanatic but the rookie back who concerns me is the 9er’s Hyde….that boy looks strong, fast, and runs determined
