Seahawks reach 75-man roster limit

Posted Aug 27, 2013

Four injured players were placed on the physically-unable-to-perform and non-football injury lists on Tuesday as the Seahawks reached the 75-man roster limit.


The Seahawks reached the league-mandated 75-man roster limit on Tuesday, and did it without releasing anyone.

The club’s four needed moves came when wide receiver Percy Harvin, defensive lineman Greg Scruggs and rookie cornerback Tharold Simon were placed on reserve/physically unable to perform and linebacker Korey Toomer went on reserve/non-football injury.

Harvin, Scruggs and Simon will have to sit out the first six games of the regular season and then will have a three-week window to practice before the club must decide whether to add them to the 53-man roster.

Harvin had recent hip surgery, while Scruggs had knee surgery during the offseason and Simon has been sidelined with a foot injury.

Earlier in the day, the contract of veteran cornerback Will Blackmon was terminated and wide receiver Donavon Kemp was released. The club also made nine roster moves on Monday.
