Seahawks place DT Williams on IR

The Seattle Seahawks placed defensive tackle Jesse Williams on

injured reserve Monday with a knee injury.

Williams, one of three fifth-round draft picks by Seattle, was

unable to practice more than a few days in a row before having to

take at least a day off throughout training camp. He played in the

team’s first two preseason games and started their opener against

San Diego, but didn’t record a tackle.

Seattle also terminated the contract of wide receiver Brett

Swain and waived receiver Perez Ashford, linebackers Kyle Knox and

Craig Wilkins, long-snapper Kyle Nelson, tight ends Jameson Konz

and Andrei Lintz and defensive tackle Martin Parker.

Seattle still needs to make six additional moves to get under

the league-mandated 75-man limit by Tuesday.
