SEATTLE (AP) -Punter Ryan Plackemeier, running back Justin Forsett and wide receiver Jordan Kent were released by the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday.
Kent's release leaves Seattle with only two healthy wide receivers heading into Sunday's game against San Francisco - Courtney Taylor and Logan Payne. Seattle is expected to try to sign a veteran receiver before Sunday's game, with Nate Burleson out for the season, and Deion Branch and Bobby Engram not expected back for a few more weeks. Burleson was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Plackemeier has been Seattle's punter for the past two seasons, but missed most of training camp after tearing a pectoral muscle. He then struggled in Seattle's season opener in Buffalo. Seattle signed veteran Jon Ryan to take Plackemeier's spot.
