Hawks place TE McCoy on IR, add DE Geathers

The Seattle Seahawks placed tight end Anthony McCoy on the season-ending injured reserve with a knee issue. McCoy, a sixth round draft pick by Seattle in this year's draft, had saw action in two games this season.

But Seattle had depth at tight end, carrying four on the active roster, including John Carlson, Chris Baker, Cameron Morrah and McCoy.

With a vacant spot on the active roster, the Seahawks claimed defensive end Clifton Geathers off waivers. At 6-foot-7, 300 pounds, Geathers was a sixth round draft choice by Cleveland this year. He was waived by the Browns during final roster cut downs in September, and claimed by Miami soon after, eventually winding up on the Dolphins practice squad.

Miami signed Geathers to the team's active roster in Week 7, and he was active for one game. The Dolphins released the South Carolina product on Wednesday. He'll likely serve as depth for Seattle at strong-side defensive end behind Kentwan Balmer.

McCoy is the ninth player put on Seattle's injured reserve list.
