As expected, the Seattle Seahawks made a couple roster moves to get down to 75 players by this afternoon’s league deadline.

The Seahawks placed receiver Percy Harvin (hip), rookie cornerback Tharold Simon (foot) and defensive lineman Greg Scruggs (knee) on the reserve/physically unable to perform list. All three players began training camp on the active PUP list.

Under the new rules for the PUP list, the player has to sit out the first six games of the year.

After that, the team has a five-week window to get the player back on the practice field. Once the player begins practicing, the Seahawks have 21 days to add him to the active roster or miss the rest of the season. So the player could be added to Seattle’s roster as late as Week 15.

Defensive end Chris Clemons (knee) remains on the active PUP list, which means there’s still a chance he begins the season on the active roster.

The Seahawks also placed linebacker Korey Toomer (hip) on the reserve/non-football injury list.

    Thanks for the details, Eric. A search will give you the old rules. They had 3 weeks to start them practicing and 3 weeks to decide where to place them before it seems. Scruggs is done, right? I assume Simon is just being delayed so hopefully no one picks him up later in the year? Even if he’s healthy later, he has had no time to acclimate to the system in 2013.

    Good news about CC. We still don’t know for sure if they’ll reg season PUP him, but it seems they think there’s a chance they won’t have to.

  2. Gus Bradley has started signing the Seahawks waived players–first up-Kyle Knox.

    So Nate, you can’t call yourself bbmate, cuz that’s what I call everyone I disagree with, ya know what I mean mate?

    So macorob, you’re gunna stick with the RW (three) eh? Just cuz mate?lol
    Have at it mate… It looks like rg3, see, gee, rhymes with three. Et3, and WT3′ , the t’s rhyme with 3′

    R doesn’t, nor does W, rhyme with 3, so it just doesn’t work mate….
    I’m just trying to help ya out…

  4. sluggo, how does that change anything? Do we ever agree? We actually do a lot. It’s not that interesting to post when you agree with people all the time IMO. Don’t worry, I won’t assume you’re talking about me unless you write bbmate. Use mate all you want, not that you needed my permission. Anyways, we both probably owe some Australian person royalties on mate. Blame Dave Boling. He made the typo. It just stuck me as cool. I was already thinking of changing my handle.

    I’ll end every post with dope-head if that makes it more clear for people.

    Ladies, take it to the corner. No body wants to read your drama.

  7. r3cusant, jigga what? I don’t speak freaka.

  8. What I still am curious about – We don’t seem to be up to par with our guard play but the seemingly most promising younger is playing exclusively tackle – I am not sure why Bailey isn’t playing more at guard.

    I know they love Sweezy’s athleticism but it just doesn’t seem to add up to me. At other positions guys with potential are kept but not handed a starting job – I feel that Sweezy has been handed a job based on potential play, not current level of play.
