Seahawks Roster Management Shonn Greene in his first practice as a Seahawk Seahawks lose Parker for 9 weeks; Trade for Greene After a tough division loss to the Rams, Seahawks received news that RB Willie Parker will be out for a maximum of 9 weeks due to a herniated disk. This comes as a large disappointment, as the Seahawks had just signed Parker this past off-season to revamp their running game. "It is a tough loss for the team. We seemed to be on the right track to be able to control the ground game for first time since Shaun Alexander. For now, we'll be looking to our backups to get the job done," said Coach Faceplant City in a statement after Wednesday's loss. As it turns out, he will have to look no longer. Only a day after the game, the Seahawks traded away long-time Seahawk, MLB Lofa Tatupu, for Kansas City running back, Shonn Greene. In a statement on Friday, the Front Office had this to say: "We are excited to have this young, powerful back join us here in Seattle as we try and revive our running game. However, we also say goodbye to one of the finest linebackers we have ever had here. We know Tatupu will be happily welcomed in Kansas City." The Seahawks look to start Greene immediately in their upcoming game against the high-powered Eagles, their only matchup of the season.
