One bit of roster housekeeping to pass along as three players — defensive lineman Micbael Brooks, receiver David Gilreath and linebacker Horace Miller — have all cleared waivers and reverted to Seattle’s Injured Reserve list.
All were waived earlier this week in the cutdown from 90 players to 75. Being on IR means they do not count against the active roster.
Milller and Brooks suffered knee injuries and Gilreath a concussion. Being on IR means they are out for the season unless they reach injury settlements and are released, at which point they become free agents and could sign and play again.
Seattle now has nine players on IR (roster here, IR players at bottom). But Seattle still has available its IR to return designation. Each team can declare one player as injured but designated to return after eight weeks (Seattle used that designation last year for left tackle Russell Okung when he was injured in the second game and returned in week 11). Here is a good overview of IR rules.
— Also worth noting that the injury list on Seahawks.com again includes CB Tharold Simon. Unclear his status as it was not asked today of coach Pete Carroll.
