Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said tight end Cooper Helfet should play Sunday night at Arizona, reports the Seattle Times. Helfet, who has 10 catches for 176 yards and two touchdowns, has missed three straight games with an ankle injury.
The Seahawks announced several roster moves on Tuesday, per the team's official website. The team will keep defensive back Eric Pinkins (foot) on the reserve/non-football injury list for the remainder of the season.
Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he aims to name a Week 16 starting quarterback on Friday, reports the Associated Press. Cam Newton returned to a limited practice Wednesday after injuring his back in a car accident and sitting out Week 15.
Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, who's missed two straight games with a hand injury, practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. Running back Jonathan Stewart averaged 21.5 touches the past two weeks, and his workload could take a hit if Williams returns.
