Seahawks Elevate Artie Burns & Jon Rhattigan From Practice Squad, Place Kenny McIntosh On IR 

The Seahawks elevated two players from their practice squad ahead of Sunday’s game against the Rams, and also placed rookie running back Kenny McIntosh on injured reserve.


A day after being included on the Seahawks' initial 53-man roster, cornerback Artie Burns was released and linebacker Jon Rhattigan was waived in order to make room on the roster for a pair of waiver claims.

Those two will still be a part of the Seahawks' season-opener against the Rams, however, as both have been elevated from the practice squad for Sunday's Week 1 game at Lumen Field.

The Seahawks also placed running back Kenny McIntosh on injured reserve, the result of a knee injury suffered in last month's mock game. McIntosh will now have to miss a minimum of four games before being eligible to return.

Burns, who first signed with the Seahawks as a free agent last year, then re-signed this summer, gives the Seahawks versatility at cornerback, having made a move inside to the nickel spot in recent weeks, shining in that spot in Seattle's preseason finale at Green Bay.

Rhattigan, who initially made the team as an undrafted rookie out of Army in 2021, will no doubt have a big role on special teams, where he has been a standout the past two seasons, while also giving the Seahawks additional depth at inside linebacker.

The Seahawks are back in action on Sunday for their Week 1 matchup vs. the Rams and the team couldn't be happier to get back on the field. Check out the excitement surrounding the 2023 Seahawks.
