Mike Iupati retires after 11 seasons

Mike Iupati, a guard who was a first-round draft pick in 2010 and went to four Pro Bowls, has retired.

“My body was telling me it was time to close the door,” Iupati told the Spokesman-Review newspaper in Idaho, where he went to college.

A first-round pick of the 49ers in 2010, Iupati played five seasons in San Francisco, four in Arizona and two in Seattle.

“I fell in love with Seattle,” he said. “The organization was first class. They were so good to me.”

Iupati made the Pro Bowl for four consecutive years from 2012 to 2015 and was a first-team All-Pro in 2012.

Jarran Reed, Chris Carson, Jamal Adams return to practice

Seahawks safety Jamal Adams (shoulder/hand) insists he will play Saturday, and the practice report backs that up.

Adams, defensive tackle Jarran Reed (oblique) and running back Chris Carson (foot/load management) returned to limited participation Wednesday after sitting out Tuesday.

Left tackle Duane Brown (knee/resting vet) also returned to work on a limited basis.

Offensive guard Mike Iupati (neck) and running back DeeJay Dallas (ankle) went from being limited Tuesday to full practices Wednesday.

Defensive tackle Bryan Mone (ankle) is a concern. After being a full participant Tuesday, Mone did not practice Wednesday.

The rest of the team’s practice report remained the same.

Safety Jamal Adams (shoulder) and defensive tackle Jarran Reed (oblique) were among five Seahawks who didn’t practice Tuesday in preparation for Saturday’s game against the Rams.

Pete Carroll said the Seahawks likely won’t know Adams’ status until Saturday.

“He’s going to work through the week and see what he can get done and see if he’s OK. We’ll have to wait all the way up until game day to figure that out,” Carroll said, via Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR and PFT.

Reed was sore coming out of Sunday’s game.

“He has an oblique strain is what he has,” Carroll said. “We’re going to be real careful with him during the week and see how he goes day-to-day. He’s much better than he was one the weekend so there’s cause for optimism there.”

The Seahawks also did not have running back Chris Carson (foot/load management), offensive tackle Duane Brown (knee/resting veteran) and cornerback Jayson Stanley (hamstring) on Tuesday.

Running back DeeJay Dallas (ankle) and starting left guard Mike Iupati (neck) were limited.

Offensive tackle Brandon Shell, who was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, was a full participant with a high-ankle sprain.

Tight end Greg Olsen also was a full participant after being held out of last week’s game as he works back from a torn plantar fascia in his foot.

Brandon Shell active, Mike Iupati inactive for Seahawks

The Rams and Seahawks are set for a big matchup that will likely determine the outcome of the NFC West.

Seattle has already clinched a playoff berth after defeating Washington last week.

The Rams could clinch a playoff berth before they even begin playing on Sunday if the Jaguars pull off a come back and beat the Bears. But L.A. still needs to defeat the Seahawks to have a shot at the NFC West crown and a home playoff game.

Seattle will have its starting right tackle back after he missed last week, as Brandon Shell is active for the contest. But left guard Mike Iupati (neck) is inactive. He didn’t practice all week and was doubtful for the game.

Damon “Snacks” Harrison is also inctive, with the defensive lineman now seeking his release.

The Seahawks’ remaining inactives are running back DeeJay Dallas, defensive end Johnathan Bullard, safety Damarious Randall, and tight end Colby Parkinson.

For the Rams, running back Cam Akers (ankle) was previously declared out after he didn’t practice during the week. The Rams could use Darrell Henderson as their lead back with Malcolm Brown at No. 2. Xavier Jones is also active at running back.

Linebacker Terrell Lewis is active after missing four games with a knee injury.

The Rams remaining inactives are running back Raymond Calais, wide receiver Trishton Jackson, tight end Brycen Hopkins, and offensive lineman Jamil Demby.

Seahawks place Phil Haynes on injured reserve

The Seahaws placed backup offensive guard Phil Haynes on injured reserve, ending his season.

A player can come back from injured reserve only once this season. Haynes began the season on injured reserve with a hip injury, returning Nov. 18.

He now is on season-ending injured reserve with a groin injury.

Haynes played two games this season, seeing action on one offensive snap and 10 on special teams.

The roster moves leaves the Seahawks with 51 players on their 53-player roster, allowing spots for tight end Greg Olsen and cornerback Tre Flowers to return from injured reserve.

On their Thursday practice report, the Seahawks listed defensive tackle Jarran Reed (chest) as a non-participant for the second consecutive day. Left guard Mike Iupati (neck) and right tackle Brandon Shell (ankle) also remain out.

Running back Chris Carson (foot) returned to a full practice after being limited Wednesday.

DeeJay Dallas will miss multiple weeks with ankle sprain

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said on his radio show Monday morning that running back DeeJay Dallas did not fracture his ankle. Carroll called it a sprain.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, though, reports Dallas has a serious sprain.

Dallas’ Grade 3 ankle sprain is expected to keep him out multiple weeks, per Rapoport.

Dallas played eight snaps on special teams before leaving. The Seahawks got running back Rashaad Penny back in action for the first time in more than a year, and Penny played six offensive snaps and had two carries for 6 yards.

Carroll also updated the condition of left guard Mike Iupati during his appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle. Iupati has a stinger, an issue he previously has dealt with.

Seattle hangs on to defeat Washington, 20-15

Seattle Seahawks v Washington Football Team

Washington entered the fourth quarter down 20-3 and scored a pair of touchdowns to narrow Seattle’s lead to just five points.

Needing a touchdown, the Football Team got down to Seattle’s 23-yard line with 1:18 left.

That’s when the Seahawks came up with back-to-back sacks — one from defensive end L.J. Collier and one from Carlos Dunlap to set up fourth-and-24. Quarterback Dwayne Haskins’ pass to the end zone fell incomplete, ending Washington’s threat and sealing Seattle’s 20-15 victory.

The Seahawks’ ground attack was key in controlling the game, as they rushed for 181, averaging 7.0 yards per carry. Running back Chris Carson led the way with 63 yards, but Carlos Hyde had the game-breaking play with a 50-yard touchdown early in the third quarter. It was Seattle’s longest run of the season.

Quarterback Russell Wilson was 18-of-27 for 121 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He also had six carries for 52 yards, including a 38-yard run.

Despite playing without starting right tackle Brandon Shell — and left guard Mike Iupati left with a neck injury during the game — the Seahawks did not allow a sack. Washington rookie defensive lineman Chase Young had just three tackles.

In his first start since Week 4, Haskins finished 38-of-55 passing for 295 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. He also had 28 yards rushing.

Tight end Logan Thomas caught 13 passes for 101 yards and wide receiver Terry McLaurin caught seven passes for 77 yards.

With the win, Seattle will at least stay tied with the Rams atop the NFC West regardless of their divisional opponent’s Sunday result. The Seahawks and Rams will meet in Week 16.

At 6-8, Washington can’t finish above .500. But the Football Team will at least be tied for first place in the NFC East heading into Week 16 — even if the Giants beat the Browns on Sunday Night Football.

Chris Carson, Shaquill Griffin limited for Seahawks

Getty Images

Running back Chris Carson and cornerback Shaquill Griffin returned to the practice field for the first time in a month on Tuesday for the Seattle Seahawks. But with a Monday night game upcoming against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Seahawks didn’t have to put out an injury report until Thursday.

Despite not practicing on Thursday due to Thanksgiving, Carson (mid-foot sprain) and Griffin (hamstring) were estimated to be limited participants in practice for Seattle.

Both Carson and Griffin were injured in Seattle’s first meeting with the Arizona Cardinals. Griffin had a concussion in addition to his hamstring strain but its the latter that has kept him recently.

Right tackle Brandon Shell was among five players that were listed as not able to participate. Shell suffered a high-ankle sprain on Thursday night against the Cardinals and is questionable to return this week. Cedric Ogbuehi replaced Shell after his injury and would likely make his first start for Seattle in Shell’s absence.

Backup linemen Kyle Fuller (high-ankle sprain) and Jordan Simmons (calf), running back Travis Homer (wrist/thumb/knee) and cornerback D.J. Reed (foot) also would not have participated. Reed is also notable as he’s started the last two games in place of Griffin and Quinton Dunbar at cornerback. He played all 67 defensive snaps against the Cardinals so it’s not obvious what led to injury.

Left tackle Duane Brown was limited for rest purposes. Guards Mike Iupati (back/hip) and Damien Lewis (hip/knee) were limited as well. Center Ethan Pocic was back to full participation after missing the last two games with a concussion.

Safety Jamal Adams (shoulder), defensive end Benson Mayowa (ankle), running back Carlos Hyde (hamstring), linebacker K.J. Wright (ankle) and receivers Tyler Lockett (knee) and Freddie Swain (foot) were also listed as full participation.

Tyler Lockett (knee) misses practice on Tuesday

Former Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman once called Thursday Night Football a “poopfest.” His former team, which hosts the Cardinals in two nights on a short week of preparation, may be feeling like they’re about to endure a sh-tshow, given their raw number of injuries.

Starting receiver Tyler Lockett has a knee injury, and he missed Monday’s non-practice and Tuesday’s actual practice.

Others who didn’t practice on Tuesday were cornerback Quinton Dunbar (one), center Ethan Pocic (concussion), cornerback Shaquill Griffin (hamstring), tackle Duane Brown (knee/resting veteran), guard/center Kyle Fuller (ankle), guard Jordan Simmons (calf), and cornerback Neiko Thorpe (core).

Running back Chris Carson (foot) participated on a limited basis, as did linebacker K.J. Wright (ankle), running back Travis Homer (wrist/knee/thumb), and defensive end Benson Mayowa (ankle).

Running back Carlos Hyde (hamstring) fully participated, along with safety Jamal Adams (shoulder), tight end Greg Olsen (foot), defensive tackle Jarran Reed (hand/resting vet), guard Mike Iupati (back), receiver Freddie Swain (foot), and receiver Penny Hart (knee).

Seahawks safety Jamal Adams briefly left Sunday’s game for the locker room with a shoulder injury. He returned, though, to play 67 of 70 defensive snaps.

Adams, who missed four games earlier this season with a groin injury, was estimated as a full practice participant Monday.

The Seahawks were required to submit a practice report for Thursday Night Football, though they did not practice Monday.

They list receiver Tyler Lockett as a non-participant with a knee injury. He played 58 of 67 offensive snaps on Sunday.

Offensive tackle Duane Brown (knee, not injury related), running back Chris Carson (foot), cornerback Quinton Dunbar (knee), offensive guard Kyle Fuller (ankle), cornerback Shaquill Griffin (concussion, hamstring), center Ethan Pocic (concussion), defensive tackle Jarran Reed (hand, not injury related) and cornerback Neiko Thorpe (core) also were estimated as non-participants.

The Seahawks list running back Travis Homer (knee, thumb), running back Carlos Hyde (hamstring), defensive end Benson Mayowa (ankle), tight end Greg Olsen (foot) and linebacker K.J. Wright (ankle) as limited.

Safety Ugochukwu Amadi (hamstring), receiver Penny Hart (knee), offensive guard Mike Iupati (back), cornerback Ryan Neal (hip) and receiver Freddie Swain (foot) received full practice designations.

Seahawks center Ethan Pocic likely to miss game against Rams with concussion

The Seattle Seahawks have had a ton of problems trying to handle Aaron Donald throughout the years. They may have to try to slow him down on Sunday without their starting center in the lineup.

Ethan Pocic missed a second day of practice on Thursday due to a concussion that surfaced in the aftermath of last weekend’s game against the Buffalo Bills. Pocic played all 65 offensive snaps for the team in the 44-34 loss to the Bills.

Being unable to practice by Thursday, Pocic appears to have run out of time to complete the various progressions required in the league’s concussion protocol in order to return to action this week. If Pocic is out, the job would fall to backup Kyle Fuller to handle Donald and the rest of the Rams defensive front.

“If Ethan doesn’t play, Kyle Fuller is a guy that we’ve got a lot of confidence in. I thought he had an unbelievable training camp. Probably one of the most improved players that we had,” offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said after practice on Thursday.

Fuller missed the first two games of the season while suspended for violating the NFL’s policy on substance-abuse. He was then inactive for several games as B.J. Finney served as the backup center prior to be dealt to the Cincinnati Bengals as part of the trade that brought Carlos Dunlap to Seattle three weeks ago.

Fuller spent most of last season on Seattle’s practice squad and did not play in a game last year. He’s played in 13 career games for Seattle, the Washington Football Team and the Houston Texans with two starts for Houston in 2017.

“I don’t know that situation or scenario necessarily but I know Kyle is ready. He’s been prepared. He’s had an unbelievable training camp. He’s done great ever since he’s gotten here. He’s extremely smart, played a lot of ball in college. So I feel extremely confident about him too,” quarterback Russell Wilson said of Fuller. “He’s an extremely athletic guy, extremely smart. He’s a wizard in terms of how he takes in information. He’s really special in that. I’m looking forward to Kyle having to step up if that’s the case.”

Seattle could have backups starting at both center and left guard. Jordan Simmons has served as the starter at the guard spot the last several weeks in place of Mike Iupati, who is working his way back from a back injury that has kept him unavailable. While Simmons has played decently well, Donald is one of the premier defensive talents in the NFL. The Seahawks will have their hands full with keeping Donald away from Wilson this weekend.

“I think he’s the best in the game and the best defensive lineman that I’ve faced,” left tackle Duane Brown said. “He has a unique combination of quickness, speed, power, great instincts, a lot of moves, just a great feel for the game. Somebody you have to game plan for, you have to be aware of where he is.”
