Sunday reports emerged that one of those players who suffered a serious injury, John Ursua, was in fact lost for the year after tearing his ACL. Monday morning reports regarding a second player who suffered a knee injury in the game confirmed the fears of fans.
#Seahawks LB Ben Burr-Kirven suffered a torn ACL on Saturday night, source said following the MRI. The former fifth-round pick had worked with the starters and was impressing at camp, emerging as a key player. Now, done for the season.
Thus, it appears as though Ben Burr-Kirven will join Ursua in moving to injured reserve prior to the 4 PM New York time deadline on Tuesday for teams to trim their rosters from 85 to 80. With the team having already announced the release Dom Wood-Anderson Sunday, the Seahawks will need to make two more transactions in order to come into compliance.

The Denver Broncos won in sound fashion for their 2nd preseason game of the year. Here are my thoughts, opinions, and analysis of the game.
Here’s where the caution comes in: the preseason doesn’t mean anything. We should beat teams by double digits when we start our starting QB and the other team doesn’t. When we have the majority of our starting offense on the field, they should be able to perform well and score touchdowns.
You really can’t argue in any way about the defense overall. They played sound football for 4 quarters and created multiple turnovers. That’s a recipe for success in the NFL. Even if we don’t have a top-tier QB on the team, no NFL team wants to play a team that can play defense as well as this unit appears to be playing.
Jonathan Cooper also was showing off his ability as a pass rusher in the game. He got 2 sacks, a tackle for loss, 2 quarterback hits, a forced fumble, and a pass defense. That’s a hell of a stat line for a rookie OLB, preseason or not.
Michael Ojemudia almost had a pick 6 at the end of the half and really should have made the catch. You can’t ask for a ball to be in a better place as a defender. He had a solid game with two pass defenses and still looks like a good NFL CB to my eyes. He’s going to be the 5th corner on the depth chart and that is probably correct from what I’ve seen...but with time he’ll push for a starting role (or replace a free agent that leaves which is far more likely).
There’s nothing really to complain about on the offensive side of the ball, either. When your team scores 23 points and gets some turnovers, that’s going to win a lot of football games. It was a solid all-around effort with a sound running game and some really nice sustained drives by the Broncos.
The biggest worry I saw in this game was that the starters were losing to the Seahawk backups more often than not in the 1st half. The run game lacked some of the big holes it got last week and Bridgewater had to work the pocket (better than any QB the past 5 years mind you) to keep from getting sacked a few times.
There was nothing to write home about with any of the backs, but I will say that Royce Freeman looked good on the field. He was making good runs and catching out of the backfield. He looked like a solid backup option for the team, especially as a 3rd down back.
The biggest thing I’m seeing is that the offense is utilizing more of the field at all levels and making the defense cover. Our receivers are going inside, outside, crossing the field, and going deep. Seeing an offense with no limitations is good, but the only question is going to be will that hold up with whichever quarterback starts?
Our bad coverage on returns has reared its head again. Given that we’ve kept the same ST coordinator for years now, this doesn’t surprise me in the least. Hopefully, the team won’t lose any games because of it or maybe will utilize better players during the regular season to hide the gaffes there.
I keep coming back to the phrase “cautiously optimistic.” This team is looking good on paper against backups. That’s as much as anyone can say with any serious weight about the Broncos in 2021.
The biggest thing is that as a fan, I’m hopeful that this team can be in the mix at the end of the season with a winning record and that’s a big step forward from how I felt going into last season.
