Carroll: No update yet on knee of Chris Clemons

RENTON, Wash. (AP) Pete Carroll says the Seattle Seahawks are still awaiting the results of an MRI on the injured left knee of defensive end Chris Clemons.

Speaking on his weekly radio show on 710 KIRO-AM Monday morning, Carroll says the team is concerned about the injury suffered by Clemons early in the third quarter of Sunday's 24-14 playoff victory over Washington. Clemons was not hit on the play and appeared to get his cleats caught in the turf at FedEx Field.

Carroll said he hoped to have more information later in the day.

Clemons led Seattle with 11 1/2 sacks in the regular season. He had two tackles against the Redskins before being injured.

Seattle kicker Steven Hauschka also suffered a calf strain in the victory. Carroll said Hauschka felt better on Monday.

With Ross placed on 60-day DL, Nationals agree to 1-year deal with veteran reliever

WASHINGTON  -- The Washington Nationals say they have agreed to a one-year deal with 40-year-old reliever Joaquin Benoit.

The team announced the move Wednesday, along with placing pitcher Joe Ross on the 60-day disabled list as he recovers from Tommy John surgery in July.

The Nationals didn't release terms of the agreement, though a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Monday that it was for $1 million.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal wasn't official at the time.
