Indicator Kam Chancellor may not play: Seahawks sign S Steven Terrell off practice squad

The Seahawks made a roster move this afternoon that is an indicator strong safety Kam Chancellor may not play tomorrow against Dallas because of his new strained hip: they signed second-year safety Steven Terrell off their practice squad to provide insurance in case Chancellor can’t go.

The corresponding move was waiving seldom-used defensive end Greg Scruggs, who if he clears waivers this weekend could end up on Seattle’s practice squad.

The move also back-fills a roster move from earlier the week, when the Seahawks released safety Josh Thomas to add sign center Patrick Lewis. Lewis arrived from Cleveland’s practice squad

Seahawks’ Sunday vs Dallas would be a lot tougher without Chancellor; picks for week 6

It will be a game-time decision for Kam Chancellor Sunday. The Seahawks’ strong safety and key to the league’s No. 1 run defense has a new hip injury and coach Pete Carroll said he is questionable for Seattle’s game against Dallas and NFL rushing leader Demarco Murray.

Chancellor missed practices Thursday and Friday. Carroll said Chancellor will test the hip during pregame warmups. The Seahawks will then make a decision on his availability 90 minutes before kickoff.

Chancellor has missed only one game because of injury in his five NFL seasons with Seattle. On Oct. 2, 2011, Atari Bigby started

You might want to put on a helmet and shoulder pads to read, watch this Earl Thomas: “I am going to go on a tear”

Even for Earl Thomas, a no-smiles, all-business, self-described “warrior” renowned for intensity, this was especially full of fervor.

It was candid. It was unguarded. And it was so much better than the usual, game-week fare from veteran NFL players.

In Thomas’ weekly press conference on stage in the main auditorium of the Virginia Mason Athletic Center the Seahawks’ All-Pro gripped each side of the podium, at times clutching it like he it was a running back he was about to discard to the turf.

And he was unguarded in assailing himself for a

Morning links: Seahawks going light day before preseason opener

On my way to Renton for this morning’s expected-to-be light practice on the eve of the preseason opener Thursday at 6 p.m. at Denver.

One among many Seahawks for whom this game is prime chance to impress is second-year cornerback Tharold Simon. In today’s News Tribune I wrote how his size and speed make him an attractive option to backup Richard Sherman and Byron Maxwell — and how Sherman’s enthusiasm over Simon is indicative of the All-Pro starter’s behind-the-scenes influence on the entire defense, if not the whole team.

TNT colleague Evan Thompson has the notebook stories this morning,

Sherman: Can’t duplicate Seahawks defense

Richard Sherman took the podium after the Seattle Seahawks’ training camp practice on Monday. He spoke about fellow defensive backs Byron Maxwell, Tharold Simon and Jeron Johnson and how well they’ve looked in camp.

A reporter from the Denver Post was here today and asked about Sherman about his perception to how the league has responded to the makeup of the Seahawks defense. The Broncos, remember, dished out a lot of money toward strengthening their defense with the signings of safety T.J. Ward, linebacker DeMarcus Ware and cornerback Aquib Talib.

But it’s tough to duplicate the mindset over here,” Sherman
