Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Officially placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks placed Irvin (torn ACL) on injured reserve Wednesday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Irvin was quite effective as a pass rusher through the first two games, recording four QB pressures and three QB knockdowns. It's an unfortunate injury for the 32-year-old, and he'll look to rehab and potentially return for the 2021 season, although his contract with the Seahawks expires in March. Moving forward, rookie first-rounder Jordyn Brooks is expected to start at strong-side linebacker.

Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Torn ACL confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

An MRI confirmed that Irvin suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's win over the Patriots, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 32-year-old will miss the rest of the season and figures to undergo surgery in the near future. Irvin had five total tackles this season before suffering the injury during the latter stages of Sunday's contest. Rookie first-rounder Jordyn Brooks is likely to step into the starting role in his absence.

Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Torn ACL feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks fear Irvin tore his ACL in Sunday's win over the Patriots, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Irvin spent the rest of the game on the bench following the injury, and the team is expected to run further tests Monday to confirm the ACL tear. The veteran started the first two games of the season at strong-side linebacker, and he contributed as an edge rusher on passing downs. If Irvin in fact did tear his ACL, rookie first-round pick is expected to bump into a starting role moving forward.

Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Dealing with knee sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin sprained his knee in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Patriots but was walking around the locker room after the game, per coach Pete Carroll, Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Irvin's ability to walk around under his own power after the game was encouraging, but he will likely appear on Seattle's injury report as the Seahawks get set to face Dallas in Week 3.

Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Hurts knee late in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against New England and is doubtful to return, Brady Henderson of ESPN's NFL Nation reports.

Seattle should have an update on Irvin's injury as the team begins its preparation for a Week 3 matchup against Dallas. He's unlikely to return for the final minutes of the game against the Patriots.

Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Good to go against Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin (hip) is expected to start at strong-side linebacker against the Falcons after not being listed on Wednesday's injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Irvin's hip injury was relatively minor, but the 32-year-old was held out of practice as a precaution. Head coach Pete Carroll plans to use Irvin at strong-side linebacker in base defense while shifting to defensive end on passing downs. The veteran has proved he's still capable of fulfilling both roles after posting 36 tackles, 8.5 sacks and a pass breakup over 13 games with the Panthers last season.

Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Minor hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Pete Carroll said Irvin has missed a few days of practice due to a "real slight hip-flexor" issue, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Carroll reiterated Irvin isn't dealing with a serious injury and is sitting out mainly as a precaution. Still, the situation is worth keeping an eye on since Irvin is poised to start at strong-side linebacker in 2020 while also contributing as an edge rusher. Jordyn Brooks likely will take reps at strong-side linebacker until Irvin is ready to return.

Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Poised for consistent role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin is expected to play strong-side linebacker on early downs and defensive end in nickel packages in 2020, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Irvin returned to Seattle in March after spending the last four years in Oakland, Atlanta and Carolina. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll intends to offer the 32-year-old a considerable workload, with Irvin likely to make his biggest statistical impact as an edge rusher on passing downs. Irvin has plenty of experience playing both linebacker and down lineman, and he's coming off a strong 2019 campaign during which he accrued 36 tackles and a career-high 8.5 sacks.

Seahawks' Bruce Irvin: Heads back to Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin agreed to a contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Irvin is coming off an impressive rebound season in Carolina, during which he notched a career-high 8.5 sacks across 13 regular-season games. He'll now return to the Seahawks, who selected him in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Expect him to contribute as a rotational pass rusher during the 2020 campaign.

Panthers' Bruce Irvin: Career high in sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin finished the 2019 season with 36 tackles (22 solo), 8.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 13 games played.

Irvin inked a one-year deal with Carolina last offseason after splitting the 2018 campaign between two teams. With just one season of fewer than 5.5 sacks in his seven prior to joining the Panthers, Irvin was added to help get after the quarterback, and he ultimately finished with a career high in the category. The veteran's tally included five sacks over his last six outings, setting him up nicely as he re-enters free agency this offseason.

Irvin has now registered a sack in four of his last five outings, bringing his season tally to 7.5 with one game remaining.

Irvin recorded four tackles (three solo) and a sack across 52 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Saints.

Irvin was able to take down the quarterback for the first time since Week 8, bringing his season sack total to 4.5. The veteran is playing in a little over 75 percent of the team's defensive snaps over the past four games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers' Bruce Irvin: Nabs sack in return to field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin played 27 snaps in Sunday's 16-10 win over Houston and finished with a pair of solo tackles, including a sack.

Irvin missed his team's first three games with a hamstring injury but was active for Week 4. While he was on the field for less than half of Carolina's defensive snaps in his return, Irvin, by recording his first sack of the season, still found a way to make an impact. The 32-year-old signed a one-year contract with the Panthers this past offseason and is trying to get his career back on track after a disappointing 2018 campaign.

Panthers' Bruce Irvin: Active Sunday vs. Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin (hamstring) is active for Sunday's matchup with Houston, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Irvin was questionable entering Sunday's game after missing the team's first-three games of the season. The linebacker will make his Panthers debut against the Texans, though he may be eased into action with a slightly reduced workload in his first game back.

Panthers' Bruce Irvin: Questionable for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Coach Ron Rivera said Friday that he's optimistic about Irvin's chances of making his debut Week 4, according to Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer, but the Panthers haven't yet made a final decision about the veteran's availability. Irvin will play a starting role in Carolina's linebacker corps if he's able to go.

Panthers' Bruce Irvin: On track for Week 4 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Ron Rivera said Thursday that he expects Irvin (hamstring) to play versus the Texans on Sunday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Irvin was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic. The veteran linebacker appears on track to make his first appearance of the season Week 4, in which case he would likely play a starting role in Carolina's defense.

Panthers' Bruce Irvin: Set to miss third straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Brendan Marks of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Irvin played every game over the last three years, but he will now miss his third straight contest after not practicing all week. Marquis Haynes and Brian Burns have been rotating in Irvin's place and have combined for one sack in his absence. Irvin will look to get on the practice field next week and play in Week 4's game versus the Cardinals.

Panthers' Bruce Irvin: Not practicing yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Irvin has missed two straight games and is trending in the same direction for Week 3 versus the Cardinals. If he can't get on the practice field in some capacity by Friday, it's highly unlikely he'll be ready to play. Irvin will add a strong pass rush when he returns, but a rotation of Marquis Haynes and Brian Burns figures to slot in for the time being.
