The Seattle Seahawks waived fullback Kyle Coleman and waived/injured tackle Robert Myers on Tuesday.

They have yet to replace the open spots on their roster.

Coleman was one of just two players listed as a fullback on the team’s roster along with Marcel Reece. Running back Tre Madden has also received time as a fullback in camp as well.

Myers sustained an injury to his ankle/foot in a recent practice and was set to miss an extended period of time. He will revert to Seattle’s injured reserve list if he clears waivers.

Myers was a fifth-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2015. He’s also spent time with the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos before landing in Seattle. He has yet to play in a regular season game.

Coleman initially joined Seattle last year as a linebacker after going undrafted. The Seahawks later asked him to play fullback and brought him back this year to work more at the spot until being released.

  1. An average roster will keep 5 “backs” of the running/full variety. They currently have Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls, CJ Procise, Alex Collins, Chris Carson and Marcel Reece. Teams will be licking their chops just to see who gets cut before the season. The only way they keep all of them, barring IR/PUP, would be to redefine one of them as “Offensive Weapon”.
