McCoy placed on IR; Vobora signing official

The Seattle Seahawks made several moves today in order to replenish the roster heading into Sunday’s contest against the New York Giants.

After Pete Carroll said on Monday that linebacker Matt McCoy would be out indefinitely with a knee sprain, the Seahawks ultimately decided he would not recover in time to help them this year, and placed him on season-ending injured reserve today.

In his place, Seattle brought up linebacker Jameson Konz, the team’s seventh-round draft choice from a year ago, and added him to the active roster.

Konz was initially drafted as a tight end, but switch to defensive end during training camp and ultimately wound up being used as a linebacker. Konz saw plenty of time as gunner on the punt team and also was used on kickoff coverage on special teams, and likely will be used in a similar manner this week.

The Seahawks also released fullback Eddie Williams form the active roster and made the signing of linebacker David Vobora official.

Tight end Fendi Onobun was released from the practice squad with an injury settlement, and the Seahawks added tight end John Nalbone in his place. Seattle still has an extra spot on the practice squad, so they could conceivably bring Williams back on the practice squad if he clears waivers.
