In a sign they are likely to be without injured LBs Bobby Wagner (hamstring) and K.J. Wright (concussion) Sunday at the Clink against the Los Angeles Rams, the Seahawks Saturday called up second-year LB Kache Palacio out of Washington State from the 53-man practice squad, along with rookie CB Mike Tyson.
To create room on the 53-man roster, the Seahawks put SS Kam Chancellor on injured reserve, which had been expected, and waived OG Mark Glowinski, which was not. Glowinski began the season as a starter at right guard, but playing time had diminished in favor of veteran Oday Aboushi, then rookie Ethan Pocic.
The Seahawks also needed some salary relief because they are temporarily operating over the salary cap. Glowinski’s departure leaves the Seahawks with O-line reserves Matt Tobin, Joey Hunt and Jordan Roos, an undrafted free agent rookie who makes $465,000. Glowinski made $615,000. Roos has yet to have a scrimmage play.
Palacio was signed to the practice squad last month, while Tyson, a rookie draftee out of Cincinnati, has spent the season on the practice squad. Earlier in the week, the Seahawks brought up another linebacker from the practice squad, Paul Dawson.
Chancellor’s neck injury during a game against the Arizona Cardinals in November has kept him inactive since. Coach Pete Carroll recently confirmed Chancellor, like CB Richard Sherman (Achilles tendon surgery), was done for the season.
