Bruce Irvin LB SEA 2 Months

Irvin (oblique) is listed as active for Monday night's game against Washington.

With just four tackles in two games to date, the 2012 first-rounder is off the fantasy radar in most cases, however.

Irvin (oblique) fully participated in Saturday's practice and is listed as probable for Monday night's game against Washington, the Seahawks' official site reports.

Irvin will play for the first time since Sept. 14, but with just four tackles in two games this season, he doesn't offer much fantasy appeal.

Irvin (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against Denver.

As a backup linebacker, the question of whether Irvin is available Sunday matters little to both IDP leagues and the Seahawks defense.

Irvin (hip) is active for Thursday's game against the Packers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Irvin focused on his recovery from offseason hip surgery during training camp, and despite only practicing for the first time Sunday, he was able to practice in full by Wednesday. Expect him to start at outside linebacker, acting as a supreme pass rushing threat.

Irvin (hip) participated fully in Wednesday's practice.

Absent for the entire preseason, Irvin returned to practice Monday and ramped up to full strength in the final round of drills before Thursday's opener against the Packers. With his recovery from hip surgery behind him, he'll go to work against an offensive line that is occasionally leaky in its protection of Aaron Rodgers.

Irvin, who missed training camp and preseason games while completing rehab after offseason hip surgery, returned to practice Sunday, the team's official site reports.

It was the first time Irvin was in pads since the Super Bowl. Irvin might not be ready for Week 1, considering his lengthy recovery. It's an important year for him to prove that he is a three-down player. He played only 17 plays in the Super Bowl, all at defensive end after starting at strongside linebacker during the season. It's time for him to justify his first-round pick in 2012 (15th overall).

Irvin (hip) is on track to return to practice next week, the Everett Herald reports.

Irvin, who underwent hip surgery in June, is "doing great" according to coach Pete Carroll. While he remains of Seattle's PUP list, Irvin could be activated to return to practice next week. However, given the close proximity to the Seahawks' Sept. 4 opener versus the Packers, Irvin may be hard-pressed to be cleared fit in Week 1. A key component at outside linebacker, expect Irvin's status to be updated as the regular season approaches.

Irvin, who has not participated in training camp because of a hip injury, will return to practice next week, the team's official site reports.

Irvin underwent surgery in early June. He is expected to be ready for the season opener, but that's not a lock. The 2012 first-round pick has a lot to prove this season. The Seahawks tried to used him at OLB last season after he played his rookie season as a defensive end. How exactly he is used this season remains to be seen.

Seahawks placed SLB Bruce Irvin (hip surgery) on active/PUP.

Irvin is expected to miss most or all of training camp, with coach Pete Carroll suggesting in June the 2012 first-round pick might not be ready for Week 1. If Irvin isn't ready for the opener, the Seahawks could enter the year with a starting linebacker corps of Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright, and Malcolm Smith.
