The Seahawks moved injured players off the active roster to reach the NFL’s 75-player limit Tuesday, most notably LB Heath Farwell, a three-year special teams standout who faces surgery after tearing groin muscles in Seattle’s 34-6 win over Chicago Friday.
Farwell was joined on the injured reserve list by CB A.J. Jefferson (ankle) and guard C.J. Davis (calf). Both were injured in the San Diego exhibition game and, like Farwell, are done for the season.
Placed on the waived/injured list were DT Michael Brooks (knee surgery), WR David Gilreath (concussion) and LB Horace Miller (knee). If those players clear waivers, they can come back on Seattle’s injured reserve list.
Placed on the non-football injury reserve list was CB Eric Pinkins, a sixth-round draftee in April from San Diego State who didn’t practice with the Seahawks after a lisfranc injury to the foot and ankle. He’s eligible to return to the active roster at week six.
The Seahawks play the Raiders in Oakland at 7 p.m. Thursday to wrap up the preseason, then open the regular season Sept. 4 at home against Green Bay. The cutdown deadline for the 53-man roster is Saturday.
