Veteran Chicago cornerback Kelvin Hayden will miss the entire season after recently tearing his left hamstring in practice at Soldier Field.
Hayden will have surgery to repair the hamstring and will need six to eight months of rehab, Bears coach Marc Trestman said Wednesday. Hayden was injured in practice on Saturday night.
The 30-year-old Hayden has 12 career interceptions.
Seahawks release receiver
The Seattle Seahawks have released receiver Early Doucet after just one practice with the team.
Doucet signed with Seattle last weekend and took part in Sunday’s practice. The injury-plagued receiver then sat out the next two days after stating “I feel good” following his only practice in Seattle.
The league’s transaction report labels Doucet’s release as a terminated contract for “failing to disclose a physical condition.”
Raiders’ Watson hurts calf
Second-round draft pick Menelik Watson’s first practice of training camp lasted less than 30 minutes Thursday before the Oakland Raiders’ offensive lineman left the field after re-injuring a calf muscle in his left leg.
Watson, the 42nd overall pick and projected backup to right tackle Khalif Barnes, had been on the non-football injury list since the beginning of camp after injuring his calf in mid-July.
