Mock game over — Seahawks waive injured OT Michael Bowie

The Seahawks’ mock game is over, and it was a day for the defense, as there were no touchdowns scored. Instead, three Steven Hauschka field goals, on three attempts, marked all the scoring.

The bigger news came afterward when the Seahawks announced they have waived second-year OT Michael Bowie with the injured designation.

It’s a surprising move for a player who loomed as potentially Seattle’s starting right tackle for this season just a few weeks ago,

He injured his shoulder on the first day of camp and hasn’t played since. He attended the mock game on the sidelines.

Bowie will need shoulder surgery and will be out 4-6 months, the team says.

Sounds like the Seahawks will pick up OT Cory Brandon, who was just released by Arizona.

If he clears waivers then he will revert to Seattle’s IR list. But he is free to be signed by any team, and could be attractive given he started nine games for Seattle last year as a rookie.

The Seahawks had not been happy with the condition that Bowie arrived in for spring OTAs (as well as Alvin Bailey, who appears back in good graces). You can read some of those comments here.

Rookie Justin Britt also sat out most of the day with a sore shoulder. So that meant veteran Eric Winston, signed last week, was the starting right tackle most of the day. And right now, he appears the leader for that job.

In a couple other quick personnel notes:

Pete Carroll said that Jesse Williams suffered an injury to his healthy knee and will need the year to rehab and get back.

— SS Dion Bailey sprained an ankle but Carroll said X-rays were negative.

— Expect Paul Richardson, Cassius Marsh and Russell Okung to come back Monday.

Kevin Norwood also sat out today and it’s unclear when he will return.

Here is some video of what Carroll had to say afterward:
