Frank Clark and Germain Ifedi missed their third straight practice after the two fought during practice on Thursday.
Clark, a defensive end, punched Ifedi, an offensive tackle, during a one-on-one drill, and coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks “frown upon that very heavily.” Defensive coordinator Kris Richard also said Clark didn’t practice, in part, on Friday because of disciplinary measures taken by the team.
But another part could be injury-related: Clark wore a brace on his left knee during Sunday’s practice. Carroll hasn’t talked with the media since the fight.
Ifedi also hasn’t practiced since the fight. He received medical treatment on the field after the fight before he returned to the locker room.
“We’re getting him back,” offensive line coach Tom Cable said. “Working on it.”
Cable was just as vague when asked if Ifedi was injured.
“We’re handling that with our people here and letting our medical people and our coach decide what to do,” Cable said.
The Seahawks on Sunday waived rookie safety Jordan Simone and signed offensive lineman Darrell Brown to take his place on the 90-man roster.
Simone, a graduate of Skyline High in Sammamish, Washington, was signed by the Seahawks in May after taking part as a tryout in the team’s rookie minicamp.
The 6-5, 317-pound Brown played at Louisiana Tech, where he was a tackle.
The Seahawks suddenly have some depth issues at tackle with right tackle Ifedi having missed the last three practices and backup Robert Myers also having been limited the past couple days.
Simone had been playing strong safety working behind Kam Chancellor, Delano Hill and Bradley McDougald (McDougald has worked as a backup at both safety spots).
Brown had a rookie minicamp stint with the Jets.
The signing of Brown gives the Seahawks 13 offensive linemen on their roster who are active with another, rookie tackle Justin Senior, on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
