Report: Seahawks release Anthony Rush

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

A move seemed inevitable after Damon Harrison’s addition to the practice squad, with four defensive tackles already on the Seahawks’ 53-man roster. Now, with Harrison’s conditioning getting to a place where he can be a part of the team’s game day roster, Seattle has made a move up front.

According to Ben Arthur of the Seattle PI, Anthony Rush has been released from the Seahawks’ active roster.

Rush came to Seattle after roster cuts at the end of camp, initially signing with the team’s practice squad before eventually getting promoted to the 53-man roster. Though he appeared in four games for the team, he has been dealing with a knee injury recently and had been inactive during the team’s last two games.

Should Harrison, or another member of the practice squad, take Rush’s vacated roster spot, a return to the practice squad could certainly happen. For now, the Seahawks find themselves with an open spot on their 53-man roster.
