The Seahawks placed Maxwell (hip) on injured reserve Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Maxwell tended to a hip flexor injury throughout the preseason, stirring rumors that he could be on the chopping block in advance of the cutdown date. Instead, the Seahawks will place the 30-year-old cornerback on IR. With the move, there's a question of who will slot into the starting lineup opposite Shaquill Griffin among Dontae Johnson, Justin Coleman or Neiko Thorpe (wrist).
