The Seahawks will have to do some work this week preparing rookie defensive end Bruce Irvin for a featured role as a pass rusher. Starter Chris Clemons went down with a torn ACL in Sunday’s win against the Redskins. Irvin was drafted in the NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks with the 15th pick of the 1st round in 2012. In September while playing the Green Bay Packers, Irvin recorded his first multi sack game recording 2 sacks. In October against the Carolina Panthers he recorded 2 more sacks and a forced fumble. Pete Carroll had this to say out Irvin: “The logical thing to do is for Bruce to move up and do all of the playing and takes the lead spot and then we’ll fit it in behind him,” head coach Pete Carroll said, according to Curtis Crabtree of profootballweekly.com. “That is stuff that we saw him do in college that everybody talked about that they didn’t see. He played the same position in college so really he has done fine. He’s not as big as Chris Clemons is on blocks, but he’s faster and he’s quicker, so he’ll give us some stuff. We’ll certainly miss Clem, but he can hold up his own.”   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
