Seahawks activate Abe Lucas, place Phil Haynes on injured reserve

Abe Lucas is back, but the Seahawks lose their starting right guard for at least four games.

It’s official! Seattle Seahawks starting right tackle Abraham Lucas is back on the active roster after missing almost the entire season with an unspecified knee problem.

The bad news? Seattle still won’t have its projected starting offensive line combination together, and it’s not happening any time soon.

A toe injury for Phil Haynes has landed the oft-injured right guard on injured reserve, where he will remain for at least the next four games. This was the corresponding move in order to make room for Lucas on the 53-man roster.

With Haynes out until at least Week 17, starting right guard duties will presumably belong to either rookie Anthony Bradford or Jason Peters. Considering Bradford is an actual guard and Peters is likely going to the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a left tackle, I think it’s very clear which option is more preferable.

The Seahawks also elevated wide receiver Cody Thompson from the practice squad, which is something to note given Dareke Young is likely out and Dee Eskridge is questionable with a rib injury.

But the big headline? Abe is back.
