The Seattle Seahawks have signed running back Chris Henry from the practice squad and released offensive tackle Breno Giacomini.
The Seahawks made the moves Saturday, one day before hosting Arizona with first place in the NFC West on the line.
Henry was in his second stint on Seattle’s practice squad. He has played in 10 career games with 32 carries for 122 yards.
He was originally drafted by Tennessee in the second round of the 2007 draft.
Giacomini was signed by the Seahawks from the Green Bay practice squad on Sept. 28.
Favre probe continues
A spokesman for the woman who allegedly received lewd photos and inappropriate text messages from Brett Favre two years ago said the quarterback tried to contact the former New York Jets game hostess in 2009.
Phil Reese, Jenn Sterger’s manager, said Favre called Sterger last June. Reese declined comment when asked if there were multiple calls, but said Sterger did not answer the phone.
The NFL is investigating the allegations against Favre and is trying to speak with Sterger, who hasn’t decided yet whether she will speak with the league.
Ravens make moves
The Baltimore Ravens have placed offensive tackle Jared Gaither on season-ending injured reserve and activated six-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed from the physically unable to perform list.
Reed (hip) is expected to make his season debut today against the Buffalo Bills.
The Ravens also activated special teams standout Brendon Ayanbadejo (quadriceps) from the PUP list and released linebacker Edgar Jones.
