Seahawks fourth-round WR Kevin Norwood (foot surgery) could return in a "week or two."
Norwood is "doing great" after having bone spurs removed last Tuesday. In a best-case scenario, he'll be ready for Seattle's preseason finale, but it's unlikely. He'll be a special teamer if he's active on game days this season. Aug 14 - 5:00 PM

Seahawks fourth-round WR Kevin Norwood had a bone spur removed from his foot on Tuesday.

Norwood is out indefinitely. Coach Pete Carroll thinks he could be back before the end of camp. With such a deep, talented roster in Seattle, Norwood's chances of cracking the 53-man are slim. He may end up on injured reserve.

Seahawks fourth-round WR Kevin Norwood is out indefinitely with a foot injury.

Norwood, the 123rd pick in May's draft, was making waves early in camp. According to the Seattle Times, his season could be over, though it's too early to tell. "We are waiting for some more information on him," coach Pete Carroll said. "We are going to take our time with him. He's not going to come back right away."

Fourth-round WR Kevin Norwood has reportedly looked "sensational" early in Seahawks camp.

Norwood is buried on the depth chart, currently operating in the No. 5 or 6 spot. But it's unlikely Seattle would get him through waivers and onto the practice squad, so they'll have to end up making room for him on the 53-man roster. If Norwood can show well on special teams, Ricardo Lockette may lose his job.

Seahawks signed No. 123 overall pick WR Kevin Norwood to a four-year contract.

Going on 25, Norwood never reached 40 receptions in a college season. He does, however, boast a nice size/speed combo, clocking in at 6-foot-2, 198 with 4.48 wheels. Norwood will be a role player for an offense that focuses on the run, and should make his biggest rookie contributions on special teams.

Seahawks selected Alabama WR Kevin Norwood with the No. 123 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Norwood (6-foot-2, 198) was a two-year starter for the Crimson Tide, playing second fiddle to likely 2015 top-ten pick Amari Cooper en route to 81 career catches for 1,275 yards (15.7 YPR) and 12 touchdowns. He never reached 40 receptions in a college season, and will turn 25 early in his rookie year. Norwood did have a nice Combine, running 4.48 with a 10-foot-1 broad jump. Ultimately, he has limited upside and would do well to pan out as a No. 3 NFL wideout.
