Seahawks make moves, Carpenter on move on line

Published on September 2, 2012 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

He didn’t play during the exhibition season, but the Seattle Seahawks appear confident James Carpenter, last year’s first-round pick, will be ready to perform in 2012.

Carpenter, who spent the entire training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list rehabilitating from an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury suffered in November, will surprisingly begin the season on the active roster.

If Carpenter had started the season on the PUP list, he would not have been allowed to practice with the team for the first six weeks of the regular season. By placing Carpenter on the active roster, Seattle coach Pete Carroll can get the University of Alabama product on the field and ready to play quicker.

Carroll also said Carpenter will move from right tackle to left guard.

The Seahawks also will go with two quarterbacks on the active roster for the first time in three years as the team released third stringer Josh Portis.

The second-year pro out of California (Pa.) University struggled in his only exhibition season action against Oakland on Thursday, finishing 1-for-6 for 10 yards. Portis was sacked once.

A fourth-round pick in 2011 and a fifth-round pick this year also were among the 20 players the team waived or placed on the injured reserve to get down to the league’s 53-man roster limit heading into the season opener at Arizona on Sept. 9.

Other minor surprises included the release of defensive back Phillip Adams, who had been working at cornerback with the second unit behind Brandon Browner; and receiver Deon Butler, a third-round pick in 2009 who battled back from a serious leg injury suffered at the end of the 2010 season.

All players waived Friday are eligible to be claimed off waivers by other teams starting at 9 a.m. today.
