Seahawks Cut Urban & Alexander Named NFC Off. Player of the Week

From Seahawks.com:

The Seattle Seahawks released wide receiver Jerheme Urban Tuesday when it was revealed he suffered a stress fracture in his left foot during Sunday’s win at Arizona. The release came as a result of the waiver Urban signed because of the same injury he suffered last year.
The Seahawks originally released Urban on Sept. 13 only to re-sign him on Oct. 4 in the wake of injuries to Darrell Jackson and Bobby Engram. Urban caught seven passes for 151 yards in the four games, including a big 46-yard reception late in the first half of Sunday’s game. In portions of three seasons with the Seahawks, Urban had 13 receptions that were good for 268 yards.
The Seahawks felt obligated to waive him because the precedent could affect the future signing of previously injured players.
“It’s unfortunate,” Seahawks President Tim Ruskell said, “We have to honor the waiver. We appreciate everything Jerheme has done for us and hopefully he gets another shot down the road.”
