Right Tackle Remains Unsettled For Seattle

When the Seattle Seahawks lost their starting right tackle in free agency during the offseason, the contingency plan seemed straightforward. After seeing significant playing time as a rookie, Michael Bowie would get first crack at stepping in for Breno Giacomini, with rookie draft pick Justin Britt also competing for the job. That still might be the final scenario. But the signing of veteran right tackle Eric Winston on Tuesday would indicate the situation is unsettled. Bowie has been slowed by a shoulder injury suffered on the first day of camp, although he's expected to practice later this week. Britt has looked like a rookie and struggled on Tuesday as he was matched up against starting defensive end Cliff Avril. Winston, the NFLPA president, has started 119 consecutive games and has the experience advantage over Bowie and Britt. RENTON, Wash. (AP) – July 30, 2014

Seattle's McCoy Goes Down With Achilles Injury

Tight end Anthony McCoy left Seattle Seahawks practice on Tuesday after being helped to a cart and the team fears he could have a serious Achilles injury to his left leg. McCoy was hurt late in the practice. He was face-down on the field for several minutes before limping to a cart. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said the initial diagnosis is that McCoy's injury is significant and that it's on the opposite leg of a previous torn Achilles that cost him all of last season. McCoy injured the Achilles on his right leg during offseason workouts before the 2013 season. Left guard James Carpenter (calf) and linebacker Bobby Wagner (hamstring) were both pulled out of drills on Tuesday after feeling discomfort. Carroll did not believe either was serious. RENTON, Wash.

Seattle Signs NFLPA President Eric Winston

The Seattle Seahawks have added depth to their offensive line by signing NFLPA president Eric Winston, and adding cornerback Terrell Thomas and wide receiver Randall Carroll. The team announced the moves Tuesday. Seattle waived/injured wide receiver Taylor Price and cut offensive lineman Bronson Irwin and cornerback Chandler Fenner to clear the roster spots. Winston has started 119 of 124 NFL games, spending his first six seasons with Houston before one season in Kansas City and last season with Arizona. The move could be a sign of uncertainty about Seattle's situation at right tackle. Michael Bowie suffered a shoulder injury at the first day of camp and rookie Justin Britt is his backup. Thomas will be reunited with Seattle coach Pete Carroll after playing for him at USC. Thomas played in 16 games last season for the Giants after being out of football in 2011 and 2012. RENTON, Wash.
