Nearly a year after suffering a season-ending knee injury, cornerback Tre Brown is still not ready to return to the Seattle Seahawks.

The Seahawks placed Brown on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list on Sunday, meaning Brown will miss at least the first four games of the 2022 NFL season. The move was one of five roster transactions for Seattle, with the other four being cuts ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline.

Brown suffered a season-ending left patellar tendon injury against the Arizona Cardinals last year on November 21, cutting his rookie campaign short after just five games. The fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma had started three of those games, making an impact with 10 tackles (nine solo).

It is currently unclear when Brown will be able to return to the field for Seattle, but it won't be until October at the earliest. He'll be missed in the Seahawks' secondary, which allowed the second-most passing yards in the NFL last year.

Moving Brown to the PUP list also opens up a roster spot for Seattle, which gives head coach Pete Carroll a bit more flexibility as he finalizes his roster over the next couple of days. The Seahawks already got a head start on that process by waiving tight end Cade Brewer, linebacker Aaron Donkor, cornerback Jameson Houston and running back Ronnie Rivers on Sunday.
