DT Red Bryant and G Ben Hamilton placed on injured reserve and other roster moves

As expected after a number of injuries occurred in Sunday’s game, Tuesday has turned into a day of roster moves for the Seahawks.

Most significantly, DE Red Bryant and LG Ben Hamilton were placed on injured reserve, ending their seasons. The Seahawks also released RB Quinton Ganther and CB Nate Ness.

Bryant’s move to IR isn’t too surprising given how bad his knee injury looked Sunday. His loss is a big blow to the Seahawks defense, particularly the run defense that has been one of the best in the league this year.

“We’ve really leaned on him as we’ve made the transition schematically and I’ve said it numerous times that he’s done a great job for us,’ Pete Carroll said Monday before Bryant had been placed on injured reserve. “Now we need to see how we hold up without him. He’s shown us the style of the play that we like there and given us a good illustration of what we can do with him, but he’s been a significant factor. He’s been such a good guy and all that. So we’re really going to miss him, miss him badly.”

Hamilton, meanwhile, suffered what Carroll called a significant concussion. He was replaced by Chester Pitts, who will likely remain the starter with Hamilton out.

The fact that the Seahawks are comfortable letting Ganther and Ness go likely means that RB Michael Robinson and cornerbacks Kelly Jennings and Walter Thurmond are on track to get back this week. Ness started in Oakland with Jennings and Thurmond both out.

Seattle signed DT Frank Okam, formerly of the Houston Texans, to fill one of those spots. Obviously more moves are coming considering there are now three spots open on the 53-man roster.

Seattle also released LB Slade Norris from the practice squad and replaced him with DE James Wyche.
