Late Friday the Seattle Seahawks made a pair of transactions ahead of their trip east to take on the Cleveland Browns in Week 6 on Sunday. The moves included promotions of two players from the practice squad to the active roster, with the two players promoted being tight end Jacob Hollister and guard Jordan Roos.
Roos, of course, provides depth for the team on the interior of the offensive line, a position group that has seen nearly every player miss time so far this season. Mike Iupati missed all but one snap of the season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, with that lone snap coming after Justin Britt suffered a knee injury that would bother him for weeks afterwards. Right guard D.J. Fluker left the Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Rams with a hamstring injury, and Ethan Pocic has been inactive with a back injury for the last three weeks.
Hollister will be available as the third tight end behind Luke Willson and Will Dissly, a position that might have been otherwise empty if George Fant has to start in place of Duane Brown on Sunday.
In order to make room for Hollister and Roos, the Hawks placed Ethan Pocic on injured reserve and waived Adrian Colbert.
