Report: Clemons will start season on active list

In what could be a pretty significant development for Seattle’s defensive line, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com is reporting that defensive end Chris Clemons will start the season on the team’s active list.

Here’s his Tweet:

Clemons has yet to practice with the team while rehabbing from an ACL injury suffered in the playoff win over the Redskins on Jan. 6.

But coach Pete Carroll said this week they were encouraged by his recovery and that they would have a big decision to make about his return.

“Clemons has been working out great,” Carroll said. “We watched him again today. He’s made fantastic progress. You would not be able to tell, from his workouts today, that he had any issues. That’s a really good sign. He hasn’t worked against anybody or practiced or any of that kind of stuff. We have a big decision to make there and we will figure that one out.”

Clemons led the Seahawks with a career-high 11.5 sacks last season.

That he will be on the active list indicates the team assumes he will be back fairly soon — he couldn’t have come off the PUP list until after week six.
