According to the team’s web site, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons will be named the NFC defensive player of the week. An announcement by the league is expected tomorrow.
Clemons totaled three sacks and two forced fumbles against St. Louis on Sunday, upping his sack total to eight on the year, good enough for ninth overall in the league.
Clemons is the first Seahawk to receive player of the week recognition this season. Last year, punter Jon Ryan, kicker Olindo Mare and returner Leon Washington all received special teams player of the year honors.
