The Seahawks have placed Derrick Coleman (foot) on injured reserve, ending his season. He fractured his foot during pregame warmups in Week 7. To replace Coleman on the active roster, the team signed wide receiver Phil Bates off the practice squad.
The lengthy injury report released by the Seahawks on Friday for the Sunday game at Carolina has only ruled-out players and probables. There are no surprises in either designation.

That group consists of fullback Derrick Coleman (foot), defensive tackle Jordan Hill (ankle), cornerback Byron Maxwell (calf), tight end Zach Miller (ankle), center Max Unger (foot), linebacker Bobby Wagner (toe) and wideout Bryan Walters (concussion). The probables are defensive end Michael Bennett (toe), strong safety Kam Chancellor (ankle), cornerback Tharold Simon (ankle), running back Robert Turbin (shoulder) and tight end Luke Willson (groin).
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told the Seattle Times that fullback Derrick Coleman will miss at least six weeks. Coleman broke his foot in pregame warmups Sunday at St. Louis.
