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.

Jones' HOF Induction Adds To Seattle's Big Year

As Walter Jones went through names to give his induction speech at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, he constantly came back to his son Walterius. His son was with him in New York during Super Bowl week when Jones found out he'd be honored in his first year of eligibility, and just the third player having spent their entire career with Seattle Seahawks to be inducted. It felt only right to have the 14-year-old give the speech. Regarded as one of the best offensive tackles to ever play, Jones will get his gold jacket Saturday night and add to a year that has seen the Seahawks reach the pinnacle of the NFL. RENTON, Wash.
