With kicker Steve Hauschka questionable after injuring he left calf during Sunday’s win over the Washington Redskins, the Seattle Seahawks are lining up alternative options in case he’s unable to go against the Atlanta Falcons this weekend, reports Ed Werder of ESPN. With K Steven Hauschka questionable, Seahawks bringing in Ryan Longwell, Neil Rackers and other kickers for tryouts — Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) January 7, 2013 Hauschka injured his calf during Sunday night’s game, which limited him to extra points and field goals, while punter Jon Ryan took over kickoff duties. At one point it appeared Ryan could take over as kicker, as he was practicing for field goals on the sidelines, but Hauschka remained in the game. In case Hauschka is unable to suit up against the Falcons, the Seahawks are set to work out several kickers as possible replacements. Among the group of kickers Seattle will try out are Ryan Longwell and Neil Rackers. Hauschka made 24 of his 27 attempted field goals this season while going 46-of-48 on extra points. He’s known for his booming foot that has proven valuable on kickoffs.
