Bolstering their running back reserves in anticipation of the injury absence of Marshawn Lynch, the Seahawks Tuesday re-signed Bryce Brown, who was cut the past week without playing. He joins the 53-man roster, as does WR B.J. Daniels, brought up from the practice squad to fill in for the likely injury absence of Paul Richardson.
To make room, LB Nick Moody was placed on injured reserve, and DT A.J. Francis, who was signed last week but did not play Sunday, was released. OL Terry Poole, a fourth-round draft choice in April, was placed on the practice squad’s injured reserve list. Added to the practice squad were RB DuJuan Harris and WR Tyler Slavin.
No word has come yet about Lynch’s trip to Philadelphia, where he is seeing a specialist in sports hernias. He is unlikely to play Sunday, when the Seahawks host the Pittsburgh Steelers. They too are without their top running back, La’Veon Bell, injured Nov. 1.
Daniels played in four games, catching one pass for 12 yards. Brown is a four-year vet from Kansas State, and played in seven games last season for Buffalo, where he had 36 carries for 126 yards.
