The Seahawks put Justin Britt in the injured reserve on Tuesday, the expected move after an ACL injury sustained in Sunday's win in Atlanta that will require "major overhaul" as Seahawks coach Pete Carroll put it on Monday.
Guardian Jordan Roos was promoted from training squad to take Brit's place on the 53-man roster.
With Brit aside for the season, the Seahawks will turn to Joey Hunt, who took over for Brit at the start of Sunday's game and who started three games in his career, including two last season.
"Joey has always done well when playing," Carol says of Hunt after Sunday's game. “He absolutely knows our cold stuff. He is a great communicator. He is a different, completely different style of player and athlete and all that, but he always does his job and will do it.
This will be the second promotion from the training team this season for Roos, who opened the year on the practice squad and was then added to the 53-man roster for Week 6 and 7 of the week while keeping DJ Flucker engaged in an injury of the hip joint. Roos first joined the Seahawks as a raw free agent from Purdue in 201
