Found August 26, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The Seattle Seahawks have placed their rookie fifth-round draft pick defensive tackle Jesse Williams on the season-ending Injured Reserve list, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. Williams was drafted out of the University of Alabama to provide depth and run-stuffing ability from the defensive tackle position. He had battled with knee issues throughout the preseason and training camp and was held out of the Seahawks last preseason game versus the Green Bay Packers. Unfortunately, Williams’ will have to watch his rookie season from the sidelines. The Seahawks should have the depth to promote from within when it comes to replacing Williams. Seattle drafted defensive tackle Jordan Hill from Penn State in the third round to help provide push up the middle and also brought in free agent Tony McDaniel from Miami to compete for playing time as well as the starting position next to incumbent starter Brandon Mebane. They may be the two most likely beneficiaries of the extra practice/game reps in the short-term. In addition to Williams being placed on IR, the Seahawks also cut or terminated the contracts of eight total players. Among those departing are: WR’s Perez Alford and Brett Swain, LB’s Kyle Knox and Craig Wilkins, TE’s Jameson Konz and Andrei Lintz, DT Martin Parker, and LS Kyle Nelson.   Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?

Why are you booing Green Bay? Don’t hate Golden Tate!

Fail Mary? Look, I get it.  You boo the enemy.  I’ve been to games and done it myself.  You boo the guy on the other team, which in most cases is that team’s best player. Occasionally the target of fan hatred is also a player the opposing fans think plays dirty.  Seems to me Brian Bosworth got booed more often than not in Denver, but I’m pretty sure he was not Seattle...
