Schofield recorded 30 tackles and two sacks in his first season with the Falcons. Although it was his first year with the team, it wasn't his first under the tutelage of Dan Quinn, as the pair came over from Seattle in the offseason. Schofield only played in 47.6 percent of defensive snaps, so there's room for improvement if he can get on the field more often in 2016.
Seahawks offensive stars Marshawn Lynch and Doug Baldwin are active Week 10 against the Giants. Both players came into the game listed as probable. Lynch is dealing with a calf injury. Baldwin has a groin issue. The team will also have Michael Bennett, Jordan Hill, Russell Okung, O'Brien Schofield and Max Unger. All five players were also listed as probable coming into the contest. Marcus Burley and Byron Maxwell should play as well. They were both listed as questionable. Burley is dealing with a hamstring injury, Maxwell has a calf issue. Guard Stephen Schilling is the only doubtful player who is active for the game.
The Seahawks have ruled out Zach Miller (ankle) and Bobby Wagner (toe) for Week 10 against the Giants. James Carpenter (ankle), Stephen Schilling (knee), Kam Chancellor (groin) and Malcolm Smith (groin) all missed practice Friday and were deemed doubtful for Sunday. Marcus Burley (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice, while Byron Maxwell (calf) was a full participant Friday. Both were deemed questionable. The following players were labeled probable: Russell Okung (calf), Doug Baldwin (groin), Max Unger (rest), O'Brien Schofield (head), Michael Bennett (toe), Marshawn Lynch (calf) and Jordan Hill (ankle).
The Seahawks re-signed linebacker O'Brien Schofield, who signed with the Giants in March only to have the deal collapse. The deal was voided after a knee injury surfaced during Schofield's physical. Schofield played in 15 games last season for the Super Bowl champs, starting twice.
Free agent linebacker O'Brien Schofield's deal with the Giants is "dead," as reported by NFL.com Thursday. Schofield's two-year, $8 million deal with the Giants fell through after a knee injury surfaced during his physical, so his next step is not yet known.
