Seahawks rookie guard Germain Ifedi injures ankle in practice

RENTON, Wash. — Seattle Seahawks first-round pick Germain Ifedi left Wednesday’s practice with an ankle injury.

“I did not see what happened,” said offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. “I know that he went in, they took him in for a minute, but I didn’t see because I was down at the other end at another drill.”

Ifedi is in line to be the team’s starting right guard. He is listed as limited on the Seahawks’ official injury report.

The team’s other options at right guard would be Rees Odhiambo, J’Marcus Webb and Justin Britt.

Odhiambo and Webb are currently backups. Britt is the starting center, but he played guard last season. If Britt were to change positions, rookie Joey Hunt would be an option to replace him at center.

When the Tennessee Titans drafted Derrick Henry 45th overall, coach Mike Mularkey said that wouldn’t change his outlook on veteran running back DeMarco Murray.

Baltimore surprisingly cut Forsett on Saturday to open up a roster spot for either defensive tackle Carl Davis or safety Matt Elam so they could become candidates to be the one player designated for return at midseason. Forsett was released because he is a vested veteran and wouldn’t have to go through waivers.

Two days later, Forsett was back with the Ravens for the first practice leading up to the game against the Bills.

“I was very much in the loop,” Forsett said. “We decided to go with the trial separation. During that time, we realized that we’re better together, and we came back and made it work.”

Coach John Harbaugh praised Forsett for being a team player.

IN 1994, WHEN Colin Kaepernick was 7 years old, Congress gave the federal government the power to oversee local police departments. According to The Washington Post, when the Justice Department has exercised this power — in cities such as LA, Detroit, New Orleans, Baltimore, Ferguson and 20 others that were assigned independent monitors — it found patterns of excessive-force violations in 64 percent of cases. Now Milwaukee, in such turmoil it once requested government assistance, is the latest under DOJ investigation.
