Morris is back for green bay.

Does anybody think he will get any time this season? Or will he be Practice squad for the rest of the year.

I like the kid, He runs freaking hard. he may not have the skill set as other players but he's good. in some ways I wish we didn't pick up jones because this is a bust season and I'd like to see J force get some carries and sproles is going to be a FA!

I think he'll be relegated to the practice squad unless someone gets injured. Knock on wood...

RENTON, Wash. (AP)—The Seattle Seahawks signed rookie running back Justin Forsett from the practice squad on Tuesday and released wide receiver Michael Bumpus.

Forsett was reacquired by the Seahawks last week after he was released by Indianapolis. Forsett played well in the preseason, but didn’t make Seattle’s final 53-man roster. He was quickly picked up by the Colts and appeared in three games before his release.

Bumpus was the Seahawks fifth receiver and had five catches for 48 yards and a touchdown in four games this season. The Seahawks expect to have receiver Deion Branch available Sunday against Tampa Bay after he missed last week’s loss to Green Bay with a bruised heel.

Bumpus to the practice squad? Or is he gone for good?

he has to pass through waivers before he can be signed to the practice squad again, so we don't know for a bit.

^ Yeah, figured that. Just was wondering if any articles said we hope to sign him back to the practice squad (after clearing waivers).

Does seem like its taking longer than usual to hear any news of signing him to the PS. Maybe they just let him go...

eh, all reports said he would go to the practice squad if he cleared. he's just such an insignificant player that it might have not been reported.

I just read in the Seattle Times that...

The Seahawks plan to use rookie RB Justin Forsett at punt returner, in place of Michael Bumpus, who was released and then re-signed to the practice squad.
So they did re-sign him, it just never made the news...
