The Seahawks on Friday placed DE Cliff Avril on IR with the neck injury he suffered Oct. 1 against the Colts. The team reportedly doesn't know yet whether he'll be able to return after 8 games. Avril has been getting "numerous" opinions from doctors, according to multiple reports, and is likely contemplating his football future even beyond this season. IDP owners can go ahead and dump him for another option. Frank Clark will continue to replace Avril in the starting lineup.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that DE Cliff Avril will be out "a while" after suffering a neck injury Sunday night that is causing numbness down 1 of his arms. Frank Clark should see a spike in playing time as long as Avril is out and makes for a solid IDP option. Seattle will visit the Rams in Week 5 before a Week 6 bye.

The Seahawks on Friday signed DE Cliff Avril to a 4-year extension. Avril has been a more valuable player on the field in Seattle than he has to IDP owners. His low-volume tackle production makes him risky, and the mere 13 total tackles over the past 2 seasons aren't enough to make him worth the gamble most weeks. Avril does at least present matchup opportunities, though. We'll see if he can enhance his fantasy profile going forward. His continued presence certainly doesn't hurt Seattle's team-D outlook at least.

Seahawks DE Cliff Avril will play Sunday night for the 1st time with his new team.  He missed Week 1 with a hamstring injury that cost him most of training camp.  “Cliff looks good,” Carroll told ESPN.com. “He had a great week. He’s full-speed. He could have played last week, but now he’s had time getting all the reps in and he’s ready to go.”  It's not clear whether Avril will start, but that probably doesn't matter.  Seattle rotated its entire D-line heavily last week and figures to do the same against the Niners.  You shouldn't consider Avril for your IDP lineup until he at least faces a more positive matchup.  DE Chris Clemons, meanwhile, looks more likely to return for Week 3.  The Seahawks listed him as questionable, but Carroll indicated they'll probably wait another week before bringing him back from the January ACL tear.
