Justin Britt: Cut loose by Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks released Britt with a failed physical designation Sunday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Aaron J. Fentress of The Athletic leaked the news earlier Sunday, noting the move will free up $8.5 million on the team's salary cap. Britt's 2019 campaign came to a close in Week 8, when he sustained a torn ACL. While he proceeds with the rest of his rehab, the 28-year-old center will seek employment elsewhere.

Seahawks' Justin Britt: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks placed Britt (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

Britt suffered a torn ACL during this past Sunday's win over the Falcons, so the Seahawks will need to find a solution at center for the remainder of the season. Joey Hunt, who has three career starts, is the next man up for the job. Britt will undergo surgery and aim to be ready for the start of the 2020 season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed Monday that Britt suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's win over Atlanta, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

The team feared that Britt suffered a season-ending knee injury in the game, and their thoughts were confirmed following an MRI.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks believe Britt has a season-ending knee injury, and he'll have an MRI to confirm, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Britt left Sunday's game against the Falcons in the first half and was ruled out almost immediately. An MRI should reveal the nature of Britt's injury and whether he'll be healthy for the 2020 season -- the final year of his contact. The Seahawks are expected to roll out Joey Hunt at center going forward, barring a trade before Tuesday's deadline.

Britt was a full participant at Thursday's practice after missing Wednesday's session with a knee injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
