Irvin is (knee) active Sunday against the Steelers. After being unable to practice all week, Irvin is a surprise active after being listed as doubtful. His presence is a big boost to the Seahawks pass rush.
Irvin (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports. Recovering from a sprained MCL, Irvin will miss a second straight game. Mike Morgan should be a capable replacement, and the Seahawks still have a loaded front seven.
Irvin (knee) is inactive Sunday against the 49ers. Irvin (knee) was listed as out earlier in the week, so this news comes as no surprise. Expect both Mike Morgan and Kevin Pierre-Louis to take over duties at strong side linebacker in Irvin's absence. The Seattle defense should be just fine without him at home against the 49ers offense.
Irvin will likely sit out Sunday versus the 49ers due to a sprained MCL, the Seahawks' official site reports. "He's got a sore knee and he's going to miss this week unless something miraculous happens," said head coach Pete Carroll. "Hopefully we can contain it to a two-week thing if that's the case." Considering the tentative timeline set forth by Carroll, Irvin will likely sit out at least the next two Sundays. In the meantime, Mike Morgan will slot in at strong-side linebacker, while Frank Clark and Cassius Marsh will split Irvin's nickel snaps at defensive end.
Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin (ribs) is active for Sunday's game in Green Bay, the Seattle Times reports. Irvin was listed as questionable, but he'll play for a second straight week. He had four tackles (two solo) and a fumble recovery in Week 1, playing the vast majority of defensive snaps.
