The Seahawks placed Justin Britt on injured reserve Tuesday, an expected move following an ACL injury sustained in Sunday’s win at Atlanta that will require a “major repair,” as Seahawks coach Pete Carroll put it Monday.
Guard Jordan Roos was promoted from the practice squad to take Britt’s place on the 53-man roster.
With Britt sidelined for the season, the Seahawks will turn to Joey Hunt, who took over for Britt early in Sunday’s game, and who has started three games in his career, including two last season.
“Joey has always done well when he plays,” Carroll said of Hunt after Sunday’s game. “He absolutely knows our stuff cold. He’s a great communicator. He’s different, totally different style player and athlete and all that, but he always gets the job done and he will. He’ll do a fine job for us.”
This will be the second promotion from the practice squad this season for Roos, who opened the year on the practice squad, then was added to the 53-man roster for Seattle’s Week 6 and 7 games while guard D.J. Fluker was dealing with a hamstring injury. Roos first joined the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue in 2017.
