international.perdananews.com – The Seattle Seahawks put CB Quinton Dunbar in Injury Reserve. Who’s the replacement?. Century Link Field now has a new name, just in time for the Thursday night game between the Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals.
The new name is Lumen Field, following the stadium’s rebrand to Lumen Technologies.
This new name is pending approval later Thursday by the Washington State Public Stadium Authority, the public corporation owner of the stadium. But already the stadium’s website displays the new name.
“Through a shared vision and commitment to serving the Seattle community, we are proud to enter a new era of world-class sports and entertainment with Lumen Field,” said Chuck Arnold, President, Seattle Seahawks and First & Goal Inc. “For nearly two decades, the stadium has made its mark as a premier Seattle venue, and a place for the community to experience thrilling victories, establish sacred traditions, and witness unforgettable moments together. We are excited to build upon that legacy and experience amazing things at Lumen Field for years to come.”The Seattle Seahawks have elevated running back Bo Scarbrough and defensive tackle Damon Harrison from their practice squad for Thursday night’s game against the Arizona Cardinals while also placing starting cornerback Quinton Dunbar on injured reserve.
Dunbar had been ruled out for the Arizona game because of a knee injury that sidelined him last week. Seattle signed cornerback Jayson Stanley off its practice squad to fill Dunbar’s roster spot. The Seahawks will also be without their other starting corner, Shaquill Griffin, against Arizona due to a hamstring injury.
Scarbrough reinforces Seattle’s backfield, with Chris Carson (foot) and Travis Homer (wrist/knee/thumb) nursing injuries. Homer is doubtful. Carson is questionable, but a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that he’s unlikely to play.
The Seahawks expect to have Carlos Hyde against Arizona. He and Carson have been sidelined since Seattle’s overtime loss to the Cardinals in Week 7.
Harrison, an All-Pro in 2016, made his Seahawks debut last week. He joined their practice squad on Oct. 7.
