Seahawks waive TE RaShaun Allen, sign OL Keavon Milton from the practice squad

The Seahawks today announced they have waived tight end RaShaun Allen and have signed offensive lineman Keavon Milton from the practice squad.

Milton, who will wear No. 66, is undoubtedly a hedge against some of the injuries on Seattle’s offensive line.

Specifically, left tackle Russell Okung (bruised lung) and center Max Unger (ankle) are out for Sunday’s game against Arizona while right guard J.R. Sweezy is battling a sprained ankle that limited him to just one practice this week.

The 6-4, 293-pound Milton played in eight games for Cleveland last season but was waived before the 2014 season. He was signed to Seattle’s practice squad Oct. 29 and has been there since.

Milton has also played tight end, but has been listed solely as a linemen by the Seahawks, and is listed as a guard in the official NFL transactions notice on this move.

Milton’s promotion gives Seattle eight healthy linemen for Sunday’s game, the others being left tackle Alvin Bailey, left guard James Carpenter, Sweezy, center Lemuel Jeanpierre, right tackle Justin Britt, center Patrick Lewis and tackle Garry Gilliam with Okung and Unger ruled out on Friday and expected to be inactive Sunday.
