Seahawks place Cassius Marsh on IR, promote TE RaShaun Allen and DB Steven Terrell

The Seattle Seahawks on Saturday placed defensive end Cassius Marsh on injured reserve and signed tight end RaShaun Allen and safety Steven Terrell from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

Combined with the trade of Percy Harvin to the Jets, made official earlier on Saturday, the Seahawks are at the 53-man limit for Sunday’s game at St. Louis.

Marsh, a fourth-round pick out of UCLA, is now done for the season, placed on IR after breaking his foot in practice on Wednesday. Marsh had been playing in a reserve role on the defensive line and had five tackles in five games. DT Jordan Hill is also out for the St.  Louis game with a sprained ankle, leaving Seattle a little shy up front, which will  force Greg Scruggs into a possibly significant role Sunday in what would be his first action since 2012.

Allen, who was signed to the team in May out of the rookie mini-camp and has been on the practice squad since the beginning of the season, is needed to add depth at a tight end spot suddenly rife with injuries with Zach Miller still out after having surgery on his ankle, and Luke Willson dealing with a groin injury that held him out of practice Thursday and Friday. Allen is a rookie from Southern University.

Terrell, who was on the active roster for the Dallas game and then waived to make room for the return of Scruggs, will add depth in the secondary with cornerback Byron Maxwell out this week with a strained calf suffered against Dallas. Terrell is listed as a safety but played nickel corner last week against Dallas after Maxwell was injured.

Marsh is now the seventh player on season-ending IR joining WR David Gilreath, LBs Mike Taylor and Heath Farwell, DTs D’Anthony Smith and Jesse Williams and TE Anthony McCoy.
