The Seattle Seahawks officially placed LB Josh Forrest on injured reserve and released OT Isaiah Battle from their practice squad.
Forrest, 25, was taken in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL draft by the Rams. He was entering the second year of his four-year, $2.47 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $540,000 for the 2017 season.
He landed on the season-ending injured reserve last season due to a torn ACL injury. He was waived with an injury designation in September.
He signed to the Seahawks’ practice squad back in October and was promoted to the active roster a few weeks later.
In 2016, Forrest appeared in 10 games and recorded nine tackles, no sacks, a fumble recovery and a pass defense for the Rams.
So far this season, Forrest appeared in two games for Seattle but did not record a single statistic.
