Kevin Norwood has bone spur removed from foot, could return before season; Seahawks sign S Michael Dobson

Seahawks rookie wide receiver Kevin Norwood has been out with a foot injury the past week or two and some words from Pete Carroll yesterday alluded to the idea that he may not even be back this season. Carroll assuaged those fears today when he announced that Norwood had a bone spur removed from his foot and may be able to get back before the season opener.

"It was a real nagging situation that we just didn't want him to try and tough it out," Carroll said. "He could tough it out - he has in the past. We want to try and fix him and get him right. We think it will be a very quick recovery and he could make it back by the end of (pre-season). We'll have to wait and see how it works out. We're glad to fix him the guy has been playing with a lot of pain he just sucks it up and goes through, but we figured out how to help him."

I had speculated earlier that perhaps Norwood would get the Tharold Simon treatment and sit his first season on the injured reserve, but this is great news that he'll perhaps be able to contribute this year.

In other news, the Hawks released Trey Wolfe, who was signed yesterday, and signed S Michael Dobson. Dobson, 6-0, 191 pounds, hails from East Carolina and was at Seattle's rookie minicamp as a tryout player.
