Steven Hauschka and Chris Clemmons landed on the Seahawks inured reserve list with injuries suffered in the wild card win over Washington Sunday.

After signing veteran kicker Ryan Longwell Tuesday, the Seattle Seahawks placed kicker Steven Hauschka on injured reserve Wednesday with a strained calf. Hauschka was hurt kicking of during the Seahawks 24-14 win over Washington.

As for Clemmons, Seahawks.com’s Clare Farnsworth reported today:

Defensive end Patrick Chukwurah was signed by the Seahawks this morning to fill the roster spot that opened when sack-leader Chris Clemons was placed on injured reserve because of a knee injury he got in Sunday’s wild-card playoff victory over the Redskins.

Chukwurah, 33, last played in the NFL with the Buccaneers in 2007, when defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and defensive line coach Todd Wash also were in Tampa. He had nine career sacks in six-plus seasons with the Vikings (2001-04), who selected him in the fifth round of 2001 NFL Draft; the Broncos (2004-06), when he had a career-high 4.5 sacks in 2006; and Bucs. Chukwurah then spent two seasons playing in the UFL with the Florida Tuskers. He has been a personal trainer since then.

 

The Seahawks take on the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday in the NFC Divisional playoff round, with the broadcast starting at 8 a.m. on Newstalk KIT.
