  • Seahawks' Devon Witherspoon: Enjoys career day

    Witherspoon recorded seven tackles (six solo), two sacks and a pick-six during Seattle's 24-3 win against the Giants on Monday. Witherspoon had the best game of his young career, notching both his first ever sack and interception, which he returned 97-yards for a touchdown to help seal the game. The rookie first-round pick will look to build off of this strong performance against the Bengals following Seattle's Week 5 bye.

  • Seahawks' Devon Witherspoon: Questionable with hamstring issue

    Witherspoon (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Coach Pete Carroll suggested a week ago that Witherspoon was unlikely to play in Seattle's regular-season opener, so he should be presumed to be on the 'doubtful' end of the questionable designation. One of Tre Brown or Mike Jackson would probably start in Witherspoon's place across from Riq Woolen.

  • Seahawks' Devon Witherspoon: Could see time in slot

    The Seahawks are tinkering with the idea of playing Witherspoon (hamstring) in the slot to kick off the season, Eric Williams of reports. Witherspoon, the No. 5 overall selection in this year's draft, logged 109 snaps at slot corner during his final collegiate season at Illinois, so the role is not foreign to him. Riq Woolen and Mike Jackson are slated to start outside at corner, so Seattle is looking to get its best 11 defenders on the field as much as possible. It should be noted the Seahawks used five defensive backs on 70 percent of their snaps during the regular season in 2022. Witherspoon missed the first two days of camp before resolving contract issues and has been hampered with a lingering hamstring injury since Aug. 7, so a return to health sooner than later would allow him to get in more reps in the slot.
