Seahawks Place CB Neiko Thorpe On Injured Reserve, Activate G Phil Haynes

Guard Phil Haynes will return from injured reserve, while special teams captain Neiko Thorpe heads back on IR.


After being activated from injured reserve and playing Sunday for the first time since Week 3, special teams captain Neiko Thorpe is headed back to the IR with a groin injury.

"Neiko, his groin didn't make it," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said after the game Sunday. "All the time we spent trying to get him back, we thought we had him. He had a lot of time to get ready, but it acted up again."

The Seahawks also activated guard Phil Haynes from the IR on Wednesday, which should add depth to the offensive line.

Haynes, a 2019 fourth-round pick, suffered a hip injury prior to the season opener and began the season on the IR. He returned to practice three weeks ago and appears ready to go for Thursday.

Campbell's, Safeway, Blue Star Families and the Seahawks partnered to award the Watkins family with a Campbell's Homegating Prize Package, 2021 Seahawks season tickets, and one big surprise: the return of husband and father, Gunnery Sergeant Ian Watkins.
