Seahawks' Josh Forrest: Signs with Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forrest signed a contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Forrest played in two games with Seattle in 2017, primarily in a special teams role. 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.

Seahawks' Josh Forrest: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forrest (foot) was placed on injured reserve by the Seahawks on Saturday.

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Seahawks' Josh Forrest: May not return with foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Seahawks' Josh Forrest: Reaches deal with Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks signed Forrest from their practice squad Tuesday, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Forrest will assume the roster spot of fullback Tre Madden (calf), who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. With several members of the Seahawks' defense managing injuries and facing a quick turnaround for the Thursday night matchup with the Cardinals, the linebacker could be active for the contest and pick up some snaps, most of which likely would come on special teams.

Josh Forrest: Reaches injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forrest (knee) reached an injury settlement with the Rams on Saturday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Forrest is now free to sign elsewhere if he is healthy enough to play. The 25-year-old was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury last year as well, but it's unclear how severe the injury is this time around.

Rams' Josh Forrest: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forrest (knee) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.

Forrest finds himself on IR for the second consecutive season. The second-year pro has plenty of upside, but if he continues to be bitten by the injury bug, his career will continue trending downward.

Rams' Josh Forrest: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forrest (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Vincent Bonsignore of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

It seems as if the move to the IR cements the suspicion that Forrest tore his ACL on Sunday, although the team has yet to comment on specifics of the injury. The 24-year-old recorded nine tackles, one pass deflection, and one fumble recovery in 10 games, primarily on special teams.

Rams' Josh Forrest: Feared to have torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forrest (knee) is feared to have torn his ACL and will have an MRI Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Forrest has nine combined tackles in his rookie season to this point. If the MRI confirms that he does have a torn ACL, the Rams will lose depth at inside linebacker.

Rams' Josh Forrest: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Forrest will not return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins after he exited with a knee injury, Rams' insider Myles Simmons reports.

Forrest suffered his injury in the first half and was initially ruled questionable to return. Bryce Hager will see some extra snaps with Forrest out.

Rams' Josh Forrest: Sixth-round pick for Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams selected Forrest in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 190th overall.

Forrest was a decent enough player at Kentucky, surpassing triple-digit tackles in 2014, but the Wildcat defense was a mess over that time frame, and Forrest's Combine showing was not good. With a 4.91-second 40 and weak jump numbers, Forrest might struggle to run in the NFL.
