Alvin Pearman out for the year

Alvin Pearman suffered a torn knee ligament during Sunday's game that will cost him the rest of the season. Doctors will let the swelling subside before operating to repair the knee and then begin a lengthy rehabilitation.
The Seahawks acquired Pearman for a conditional draft pick eight days before the regular season began. He was a prominent player in the Seahawks' special teams and combined with Lance Laury on the hit that caused a fumble on Cincinnati's kickoff return in the final minute of Seattle's Week 3 victory over the Bengals.
The Seahawks don't currently have a running back on the practice squad. Holmgren said Seattle will be looking for someone to fill Pearman's role.
Tackle Ray Willis suffered a sprained knee during the game, and he will be out about six weeks, coach Mike Holmgren estimated. Cornerback Josh Wilson suffered an ankle injury and will be out a week or two, Holmgren said.
