Seahawks get to 75-player limit, place Farwell, Jefferson on Injured Reserve

The Seattle Seahawks cut their roster to the NFL-mandated limit of 75 today by placing veteran LB Heath Farwell on Injured Reserve, among several other moves.

Farwell injured his groin in Friday’s game against the Bears, and by being placed on IR is ineligible to play for the rest of the season.

Also placed on IR were CB A.J. Jefferson and guard C.J. Davis.

The one surprise there may be Jefferson, who injured his ankle while making an interception against Denver and initially indicated he didn’t think he’d be gone all that long.

Davis was also injured against Denver, suffering a calf strain.

Jefferson and Davis, by being placed on IR, are also done for the year.

Seattle also waived as injured DT Michael Brooks, WR David Gilreath and LB Horace Miller.

Brooks had knee surgery last week, Gilreath is out with a concussion, and Miller suffered a sprained knee against the Chargers.

If those three players clear waivers, they can return to Seattle’s IR.

And in the final move, Seattle placed CB Eric Pinkins on the on the reserve/non-football injury list.

Pinkins, the team’s sixth-round pick out of San Diego State, had been on the active NFI list after suffering a lisfranc injury. Pinkins will be eligible to return to the active roster at week six.

Combined with the eight moves the team made Monday, the Seahawks are now at 75. They will  have to cut to 53 on Saturday.
