Defensive lineman Jason Jones was placed on injured reserve today, ending his first season with the Seahawks.
To fill Jones’ spot on the 53-man roster, Hebron Fangupo was signed off the practice squad. To fill Fangupo’s spot on the practice squad, wide receiver Bryan Walters, who attended Juanita High School in Kirkland, was signed.
Jones, who signed with the Seahawks in free agency, had three sacks among his 11 tackles. He also tipped four passes, recovered a fumble and had three other QB hits. But his impact on the team’s improved pass rush went beyond statistics.
As coach Pete Carroll put it, “We’re just not the same without Jason in there.”
Jones missed two games at midseason because of a sprained ankle. But it was a knee injury that ended his season.
