Seahawks designate Coby Bryant to return, sign Jake Curhan to the practice squad

Bryant now has a 21-day window to practice while remaining on IR, while Curhan stays in the fold as a member of the practice squad.

Sunday the Seattle Seahawks were dealt a hard to swallow 17-16 loss by the division rival Los Angeles Rams, giving Los Angeles and Sean McVay their second season sweep of Pete Carroll’s Hawks in the past three seasons. However, there is no time to relax, with a short week due to the Thanksgiving Day matchup against the San Francisco 49ers in just three days.

With that in mind, Seattle on Monday designated safety Coby Bryant for return from injured reserve, opening a 21-day practice window for Bryant. In addition, the Hawks also signed offensive lineman Jake Curhan to the practice squad after he cleared waivers.

Curhan had been waived Saturday in order for the team to make room on the roster to promote Jason Peters to the 53-man roster. No corresponding move was necessary to create a spot on the practice squad for Curhan, as the promotion of Peters to the active roster Saturday had already left an empty spot on the practice squad.

So, for those fans who had been worried that another team might put in a claim for Curhan, those claims may now be put to rest, and he’s back in the fold with the team.
