Seahawks vs. Packers: Injury report, injury settlement updates

New, comments
Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks head into Thursday's game with the Packers relatively healthy, and with one practice left this week, have some hope that Bruce Irvin, Jeremy Lane, and maybe even Kevin Norwood will be able to suit up and play. On the other hand, it's looking less likely that Cooper Helfet, Christine Michael, Lem Jeanpierre, Tharold Simon, or Kevin Pierre-Louis will be ready by Thursday after not practicing on Tuesday. Here's the full report:

Seahawks injury report:

DNP: TE Cooper Helfet (knee), RB Christine Michael (hamstring), C Lemuel Jeanpierre (neck), CB Tharold Simon (knee), LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (hamstring)

Limited: WR Kevin Norwood (ankle), DE/LB Bruce Irvin (hip), WR Jeremy Lane (groin)

Injury Settlements:

The Seahawks also recently reached injury settlements with injured reserve players CB A.J. Jefferson, DT Michael Brooks, LB Horace Miller, and G C.J. Davis, meaning they all become free agents. While most are facing rehab time to come back from various injuries, this means that a) the Seahawks don't have to pay them and they do not count against the cap, and b) they're now free to re-sign with anyone, including Seattle, later this season.

Bates clears waivers:

Phil Bates, waived yesterday after initially making the Seahawks roster at final cutdowns, has cleared waivers, becoming a free agent. It will be interesting to see if Seattle adds him to their practice squad now.
