The Seahawks got through training camp relatively healthy, putting only one player, defensive end Branden Jackson, on injured reserve.
They added a second player to IR on Monday, guard Phil Haynes, with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll explaining that the second-year guard has a hip injury. Putting him on IR Monday rather than ahead of Saturday's roster cuts does keep Haynes eligible to return at some point this season.
"Phil's got a hip issue that we're concerned about and we've got to see how it goes here, so he starts the season on IR," Carroll said. "… It's unfortunate for him because he really wants to play bad and he's a good kid and he's going to be a good player too, so we'll just have to wait it out now."
Carroll also said the plan is for running back Rashaad Penny, who opens the year on the physically unable to perform list, and rookies Darrell Taylor and Colby Parkinson, who are on the non-football injury list, all to return at some point this season.
"We anticipate all three of those guys coming back," Carroll said. "We see the future unfolding in the way that these guys are all going to contribute to us. Wo we're going to get a good boost from those guys when the week turns around when they can come back. They're all competing to be back at the earliest date possible, so that's a good group of guys."
On a positive injury note, Carroll said receiver Phillip Dorsett II, who battled a foot injury in camp, practiced Monday and should be good to go this week.
"We're counting on Phillip to play and do a good job in this game," Carroll said. "He practiced today. We'll see how he goes through the week, but every indication is he should be OK.
