SEATTLE (AP) -Seneca Wallace was scratched by the Seahawks against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, the fifth injury to a Seattle wide receiver already this season.
The team announced just before Sunday's kickoff that Wallace would miss its home opener because of a new calf injury. The dynamic backup quarterback was set to have a big role at receiver after practicing there the last two weeks. He ran pass patterns during pregame warmups. That's apparently when he got hurt.
Courtney Taylor, Logan Payne and Michael Bumpus - an undrafted rookie from Washington State signed from the practice squad on Saturday - started the game in a three wide receiver formation. Then on the second series, Payne left after getting hit on the knee by Dashon Goldson during a reception.
Billy McMullen was the other wide receiver available. The veteran was appearing in his first game since 2006. Seattle signed him Wednesday.
