Forrest played in two games with Seattle in 2017, with his role coming primarily on special teams. He sprained his foot in the latter half of the season and ended the year on IR. He'll have a chance to earn a roster spot once again in a depth linebacker and special teams role.
The move isn't overly surprising with the team indicating Forrest could miss an extended period of time in late November. The injuries continue to mount for the Seahawks' defense, although Forrest had a more impactful role on special teams than anything else.
Forrest (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Forrest was unable to practice this week due to the sprained foot, which he sustained in the Week 12 win over the 49ers. The Seahawks will miss his presence on special teams, but the team doesn't rely on him to contribute much on defense.
Forrest sprained his foot during Sunday's victory over the 49ers, Tony Drovetto of the Seahawks' official site reports. "He sprained his foot fairly significantly. It's going to be a problem," head coach Pete Carroll said after the game.
Carroll's comments suggest Forrest could be out for an extended period of time. The Seahawks should issue an update on his status after Forrest undergoes testing this week.
Forrest is questionable to return to Sunday's game against San Francisco with a foot injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Forrest was signed off the practice squad just a few weeks ago, and entering this week's contest, had seen just one snap on defense. His absence will be felt mostly on special teams.
