The Seahawks made several roster moves to get down to Tuesday's 75-player limit. They waived defensive tackle Michael Brooks, receiver David Gilreath and linebacker Horace Miller with injury designations. Seattle also put linebacker Heath Farwell, cornerback A.J. Jefferson and guard C.J. Davis on injured reserve. Cornerback Eric Pinkins was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.
Seahawks linebacker Heath Farwell will likely need surgery on a groin strain suffered in Friday's preseason action, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports. "Heath is going back east to get evaluated — he probably has to have surgery on his groin," head coach Pete Carroll said Monday. "So that's a very difficult situation for him. He had extensive damage, so everything points to surgery." Farwell has been a key special-teams player over the last three seasons.
As expected, the following injured players we're ruled active for the Seahawks in Week 11 against the Vikings: defensive lineman Red Bryant (concussion), defensive back Kam Chancellor (hip), defensive lineman Chris Clemons (non injury related), linebacker Heath Farwell (knee), defensive lineman Bruce Irvin (shoulder), defensive back Jeron Johnson (hamstring), defensive back Jeremy Lane (thigh), defensive back Richard Sherman (knee) and defensive lineman Tony McDaniel (hamstring).
The Seahawks' injury report for Week 11 against the Vikings features a lengthy list of defensive players, the vast majority of whom are expected to play through their injuries. Of the 11 defenders on the injury report, all but two are considered probable for Sunday's game. The probables for Week 11 include: Defensive linemen Jordan Hill (biceps), Chris Clemons (not injury related), Tony McDaniel (hamstring) and Bruce Irvin (shoulder); defensive backs Jeremy Lane (thigh), Richard Sherman (hip), Kam Chancellor (hip) and Jeron Johnson (hamstring); and linebacker Heath Farwell (knee). All players were able to practice Friday and should be able to play.
The Seattle Seahawks have re-signed LB Heath Farwell according to his agency's Twitter account. Farwell played only on special teams for Seattle after signing with the team in October. He recorded 21 tackles on special teams and blocked a punt in 11 games.
