08/27/13 - DT Jesse Williams was placed on injured reserve because he could not work through a lingering knee issue.
"It's going to take him a long time, so (we wanted) to give him the consideration to get it right," coach Pete Carroll said. "This is the right thing we can do for Jesse. And he did everything we asked of him, and looked good when he had his chances. But his knee wasn't holding up, so we had to give him a big break."
One of the reasons that Williams fell down the draft board to the fifth round was concerns about his knee holding up through a long NFL Season. Pete Carroll had liked how Williams performed during practice. However, the University of Alabama product looked hobbled in the Denver game two weeks ago.
