Michael Robinson rejoins Seahawks

Posted Oct 22, 2013

Veteran fullback Michael Robinson has been re-signed by the Seahawks because of injuries to Derrick Coleman and Spence Ware, two players who were retained when Robinson was released in August.


Percy Harvin isn’t the only one rejoining the Seahawks on Tuesday.

Veteran fullback Michael Robinson, who was released on the roster cut to 53 players in late August, has been re-signed, the club has announced. He replaces one of the players who replaced him, rookie back Spencer Ware, who was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury that had sidelined him for the past five games. Derrick Coleman, who has been starting at fullback, injured a hamstring in the Thursday night game against the Cardinals in Arizona last week.

Also back is wide receiver Ricardo Lockette. He has been signed to the practice squad, as has guard Zach Allen. Wide receiver Josh Lenz was released. There was an extra spot open on the eight-man squad after wide receiver Bryan Walters was added to the 53-man roster on Oct. 12.

Robinson joined the Seahawks in 2010 and played in the Pro Bowl after the 2011 season. He also had been a special teams co-captain the past two seasons.

Harvin, meanwhile, is scheduled to practice with the team for the first time on Tuesday after the receiver/runner/returner was placed on the physically-unable-to-perform list Aug. 27 after he had hip surgery.
