Needed: Seahawks bring back C Lemuel Jeanpierre, sign DT Travian Robertson from ATL practice sqd

That didn’t take long.

The Seahawks saw enough Sunday in Kansas City when the Chiefs steamrolled them for 190 yards rushing and they went nowhere on offense after center Max Unger got hurt. Less than 48 hours after that they brought back Lemuel Jeanpierre from an injury settlement to replace Unger. And they signed 304-pound Travian Robertson off the Atlanta Falcons’ practice squad onto the active roster to try to help fill the huge void of Brandon Mebane being injured at nose tackle.

Jeanpierre sustained a neck injury at the end of the exhibition season. Seattle placed him

S Kam Chancellor missing game for 3rd time in NFL career, G Carpenter also out for Seahawks vs NYG

Kam Chancellor is missing his second consecutive game, and just the third game of his five-year career, today as the Seahawks get ready to kick off against the New York Giants.

Chancellor missed the entire week with a groin injury on top of the bone spurs in his ankles. The thudding strong safety also missed last week’s win over Oakland. He is a key to Seattle’s run defense, with huge hits near the line of scrimmage, but the Giants haven’t been running much or well lately.

Jeron Johnson will make the first start of his four-year career today, for Chancellor.

Seahawks put DE Greg Scruggs on IR, add DE DeMarcus Dobbs off waivers; Lane may share nickel with Burley

The Seahawks have placed defensive end Greg Scruggs on injured reserve three days after he injured his knee against Oakland. Seattle has claimed defensive end DeMarcus Dobbs off

waivers from San Francisco. Dobbs, an undrafted free agent from Georgia in 2011, has played six games for the 49ers this season and has been on their special-teams units as well as defense.

Scruggs missed all of last season following knee surgery. Coach Pete Carroll said following the Seahawks’ win over the Raiders last Sunday that Scruggs had a sore knee that was a different injury than last year’s.

There could be

Seahawks may need a healthy safety — or two — for pass-happy Raiders

The Seahawks have a few hours hours before they have to have their active roster set for tomorrow’s 1:25 p.m. game against Oakland at CenturyLink Field. Last week they signed wide receiver Phil Bates off their practice squad and put fullback Derrick Coleman on injured reserve on a Saturday, the day before the win at Carolina.

This weekend the needy position is safety. Seattle is down to three healthy safeties: Earl Thomas, Eric Pinkins and Steven Terrell. Terrell has been on a practice-squad shuttle for some of this season. Pinkins, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound rookie from San Diego State recently came off

Four Seahawks starters out, Chancellor, Unger, Okung questionable for Sunday’s game against Oakland.

That’s four starters out and three more questionable for the Seahawks Sunday against the Raiders.

Not exactly the picture of health.

While this is standard fare for NFL teams in the middle of the regular season, it is a heftier injury load than the Seahawks have had to carry the previous two seasons — certainly more than last season when they were relatively fortunate and healthy en route to winning the Super Bowl.

Byron Maxwell’s ongoing calf strain means Tharold Simon will start for the third consecutive time. It will be the second-year man’s third NFL start. Raiders rookie

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.
