Seahawks injury report: Add Marsh to the list, and Harvin sits again

A couple things of note on Seattle’s injury report from Thursday’s practice.

First, add Cassius Marsh to the list as sat out with a foot injury on a day when the Seahawks had nine players sit out — a season high. Marsh was not on the injury report Wednesday, so possibly something that happened in practice.

Also, TE Luke Willson did not practice with a groin and DT Brandon Mebane also sat out, listed as non-injury related, which is generally assumed to be a rest day.

With Willson sidelined and Zach Miller already ruled out, Seattle could also suddenly be shy on tight ends for Sunday’s game at St. Louis. Third-teamer Cooper Helfet was the only tight end to practice on Thursday.

WR Percy Harvin also sat out for the second straight day. But intriguingly (ominously?) Harvin today was listed as out with a thigh injury while on Wednesday he had been listed as non-injury related. Harvin also missed last Thursday’s practice with a thigh injury but then played Sunday against the Cowboys.

Others not practicing today were CB Byron Maxwell (calf), C Max Unger (foot) and DT Jordan Hill (ankle), as well as two players already listed as out for the game — Miller and LB Bobby Wagner (Pete Carroll also said Unger is out this week but he does not have that designation on the injury report).

Listed as fully participating were Tharold Simon, Marshawn Lynch and Alvin Bailey.

With Maxwell out, Simon could possibly get the start at cornerback Sunday in what would be his first NFL game.

If both Marsh and Hill are out then the team could need a few snaps out of Greg Scruggs, who was re-signed this week to the 53-man roster, and would have a shorter rotation up front.

Also, the injuries piling up could make the decisions on who is active on gameday a little easier — if not quite inĀ  the ideal manner to get to that point. That could mean guys like Christine Michael, Paul Richardson and Kevin Norwood would be active.
