Seahawks Infirmary Report: Vet Marcus Trufant Goes On IR

Roster Update

The Seattle Seahawks signed defensive tackle Jason Shirley and placed longtime veteran (9th year with the Seahawks) CB Marcus Trufant on injured reserve officially ending his 2011/12 season. Trufant, 30, is the longest-tenured member of the Seahawks.

Trufant is suffering from what coach Pete Carroll said was a bruised sacrum. He picked up this injury in Seattle’s home game against Atlanta on Oct. 2.

Trufant missed last week’s game vs. the N.Y. Giants as sophmore Walter Thurmond started in his place alongside rookie and CFL castoff Brandon Browner. (Yes the guy still running into New Jersey with that last INT)

The silver lining if there is any for the Seahawks and a  luxury Pete Carroll has is DB Roy Lewis (another Seahawks vet) is eligible to come off the PUP this week.

They will miss the cover ability and leadership of Trufant, but Roy Lewis will more than make up for the loss in my opinion.
