As expected, the Seattle Seahawks made a couple roster moves to get down to 75 players by this afternoon’s league deadline.
The Seahawks placed receiver Percy Harvin (hip), rookie cornerback Tharold Simon (foot) and defensive lineman Greg Scruggs (knee) on the reserve/physically unable to perform list. All three players began training camp on the active PUP list.
Under the new rules for the PUP list, the player has to sit out the first six games of the year.
After that, the team has a five-week window to get the player back on the practice field. Once the player begins practicing, the Seahawks have 21 days to add him to the active roster or miss the rest of the season. So the player could be added to Seattle’s roster as late as Week 15.

Defensive end Chris Clemons (knee) remains on the active PUP list, which means there’s still a chance he begins the season on the active roster.
The Seahawks also placed linebacker Korey Toomer (hip) on the reserve/non-football injury list.
