RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The Seattle Seahawks are dealing with injuries on their defensive front and penalties as they enter the final week of preseason action.
Five players expected to contribute significantly along the Seahawks' defensive line may not be able to play for the start of the regular season.
The team was forced to place fifth-round pick Jesse Williams on injured reserve Monday because of a troublesome knee. Defensive tackle Jordan Hill is sidelined with a strained biceps and nose tackle Brandon Mebane injured his groin in practice on Monday.
Chris Clemons remains on the physically unable to perform list and his timetable to return from an ACL tear last January remains uncertain and Cliff Avril aggravated a hamstring strain last week and has yet to play this preseason.
