Seattle Seahawks

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.

The Seattle Seahawks continued their offseason overhaul of the defensive line on the third day of the draft with the selection of Williams in the fifth round.

Seattle traded one of three fifth round selections and a sixth round pick to the Detroit Lions to move up and snag Williams. While most of Seattle's roster moves have been to bolster their pass rush, Williams is a big-body at 6-foot-4, 323 pounds that will factor more heavily in the run game. The Seahawks have now expended three free agent signings and two draft picks along the defensive front.
