Seahawks Injury Update: Kevin Norwood out indefinitely with foot injury

By on 8/06/2014 07:00:00 AM

Seattle Seahawks rookie WR Kevin Norwood will be out for an unknown amount of time due to a lingering foot injury.
The news was reported from ESPN writer Terry Blount on Sunday. According to Blount, “rookie wide receiver Kevin Norwood is the biggest concern among the players not practicing for the Seahawks. He remains on the sidelines with a foot injury.”

Norwood’s injury allegedly dates as far back as Seahawks OTA practices early on this off-season.

In an interview reported by, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said, "He's had a foot that was sore back in the OTAs and he came back on the first day and felt it again. So were going to rest him until Tuesday and see how he does coming back. He had an old surgery in school, and we've checked it all out. There are no big problems with it, but he does have a sore foot, so we're resting him."

Selected in the fourth round, the University of Alabama wide out was relatively productive in college, catching 38 passes for 568 yards and seven touchdowns in his senior season.

Currently the Seahawks do have rookie Paul Richardson, Percy Harvin, Jermaine Kearse and Doug Baldwin at the WR position. However, behind Norwood, the Seahawks don’t have much receiving talent. With Norwood, the Hawks are a much more dangerous offense, however, without him, more pressure will be put on Russell Wilson and this Seattle passing offense to make plays.
