The Seattle Seahawks have informed PK Steven Hauschka he will be placed on Injured Reserve, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hauschka suffered a strained calf in the Seahawks' Wild Card win over Washington, though he stuck around long enough to boot three short field goals after suffering the injury. The Seahawks signed Ryan Longwell to handle kicking duties for the duration of their playoff run.

Seattle Seahawks PK Steven Hauschka suffered a left-ankle injury in the NFC Wild Card game, but he was able to finish the game. P Jon Ryan did handle kickoff duties after the injury, but Hauschka finished the game and had three field goals (32, 29, 22) and an extra point.
Huddle Up: Even with the injury occurring with Hauschka's plant leg and the PK being able to knock in some kicks afterward, look for the Seahawks to have a new kicker for next Sunday's divisional-round game in Atlanta.
