With K Steven Hauschka questionable, Seahawks bringing in Ryan Longwell, Neil Rackers and other kickers for tryouts

Hauschka injured his calf during Sunday night’s game, which limited him to extra points and field goals, while punter Jon Ryan took over kickoff duties. At one point it appeared Ryan could take over as kicker, as he was practicing for field goals on the sidelines, but Hauschka remained in the game.
In case Hauschka is unable to suit up against the Falcons, the Seahawks are set to work out several kickers as possible replacements. Among the group of kickers Seattle will try out are Ryan Longwell and Neil Rackers.
Hauschka made 24 of his 27 attempted field goals this season while going 46-of-48 on extra points. He’s known for his booming foot that has proven valuable on kickoffs.
