The Seahawks made a number of roster moves Saturday afternoon ahead of the team’s Week 4 NFC West showdown with the San Francisco 49ers.

Heaps: Seahawks’ offense must start playing ‘full 60 minutes’ vs 49ers

Running back Rashaad Penny, the team’s first-round pick in 2018, has been placed on injured reserve due to a calf injury that he suffered in Week 1. Penny was ruled out for Sunday’s game on Friday, and he hasn’t played since the Week 1 opener in Indianapolis. By being placed on injured reserve, Penny will be out for at minimum three weeks. He had eight yards on two carries against the Colts before the injury.

The Seahawks will also be without defensive end Benson Mayowa for the second week in a row. Mayowa, who is battling a neck injury that kept him out of action in Seattle’s Week 3 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, was initially listed as questionable, but he has since been downgraded to out. He has one sack this season.

The Seahawks activated two players from injured reserve on Saturday, as well.

Second-year tight end Colby Parkinson (foot) and right tackle Cedric Ogbuehi (biceps) are back after missing the first three weeks of the season. Both could be thrust into rather large roles right away against the 49ers.

The Seahawks will likely be without starting tight end Gerald Everett as he in on the COVID-19/reserve list. That likely makes Parkinson the No. 2 tight end on Sunday behind fourth-year tight end Will Dissly.

For Ogbuehi, he might find himself starting, as the Seahawks will be without starting right tackle Brandon Shell for the second week in a row as he is battling an ankle injury. Ogbuehi started four games in place of Shell at right tackle for the Seahawks in 2020.

In another move, the Seahawks will have wide receiver Cody Thompson added to the gameday roster from the practice squad for the second week in a row. The Seahawks will likely be without rookie receiver Dee Eskridge for the third week in a row as he is listed as doubtful to play against the 49ers due to a concussion. Star wide receiver Tyler Lockett is questionable to play with a hip injury, but head coach Pete Carroll said he expects Lockett to suit up.
