Seahawks put rookie DE Cassius Marsh on IR, sign TE RaShaun Allen, CB Steven Terrell from practice squad

The Seahawks have done the expected to get a backup tight end on the active roster for tomorrow’s game at St. Louis: they have placed rookie defensive end Cassius Marsh on the season-ending injured-reserve list and signed tight end RaShaun Allen from the practice squad.

Seattle needing Allen is a sign that Luke Willson, questionable for the Rams game because of a groin injury, won’t be able to play and Cooper Helfet will be making his first career start.

The Seahawks also signed defensive back Steven Terrell off their practice squad for Sunday’s game for the second consecutive week. Terrell,

Seahawks list LB Bobby Wagner out for Sunday; WR Percy Harvin, RB Marshawn Lynch rest instead of practice

The Seahawks (3-2) list Bobby Wagner as out for Sunday’s game at St. Louis (1-4) because of his turf-toe injury. Coach Pete Carroll said today Wagner could miss multiple games but that he does not need surgery.

K.J. Wright is going to start at middle linebacker Sunday, with Malcolm Smith and Bruce Irvin as outside linebackers.

Carroll had already declared tight end Zach Miller (ankle surgery) and center Max Unger out for the Rams game.

Wednesday is rest day in the middle of the season for running back Marshawn Lynch. That is what the “NIR” — not injury-related — essentially

Hey, c’mon back from that ledge! It’s still way early in this Seahawks season

For those of you who may be reading this while your toes are dangling from a ledge of a tall building, a reminder:

It’s mid-October.

These are long seasons, full of teams on winning streaks, losing streaks and injury streaks — many of which are still to happen. The nature of NFL teams usually playing only once every seven days means there are six days in between to scrutinize and inflate the importance of the most recent game. Win or lose that last game becomes a confirmation or indictment of an entire season.

In fact, it’s 1/16th of it.

Sure,

Sore Seahawks: Key LB Bobby Wagner has turf toe, could miss a while; CB Byron Maxwell has a strained calf

One of the many reasons the NFL hasn’t had a repeat Super Bowl champion since the 2003-04 Patriots is injuries to key starters.

The Seahawks are having a worrisome share right now.

Bobby Wagner, one of the most valuable stoppers in the middle of the defense, has a turf-toe ligament injury that coach Pete Carroll says may be like the one that sidelined Russell Okung for eight games in 2013 and led the left tackle to surgery.

“We’ll have to take this the next couple days and see what that means. But he’s banged up,” Carroll said of his middle

Malcolm Smith 1st full practice of Seahawks preseason is like his last game–when he became Super Bowl MVP

That was some of Malcolm Smith talking following his first full work on the field with the Seahawks since February’s Super Bowl.

In this morning’s practice, Smith was almost as good as he was in last game.

This was far from being the Super Bowl’s most valuable player, of course. It was only a Tuesday morning before the third exhibition game. But what Smith did during the final, team scrimmaging exemplifies why Seattle’s defense just got a lot healthier in more ways than one with his return from ankle surgery in the spring.
