Seattle Seahawks reduce roster to 75
By Terry Blount
RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks reached the 75-man roster limit Tuesday by placing receiver Percy Harvin, defensive end Greg Scruggs and cornerback Tharold Simon on the reserve/physically unable to perform list. Seattle also placed linebacker Korey Toomer on the reserve/non-football injury list.
Players on the reserve PUP list can return to the active roster in Week 6 of the regular season, however, this doesn't mean the Seahawks expect Harvin back sooner than late November from his hip surgery. This simply is the move at the moment to get to 75.
Starting defensive end Chris Clemons remains on the active PUP list, which gives the Seahawks the option of placing him on the active roster at any time. Clemons is recovering from offseason ACL surgery.
Starting defensive tackle Brandon Mebane, who suffered a groin injury in Monday’s practice, did not work out with the team Tuesday. There was no announcement on his condition.
