Seahawks leave roster spot open

According to the NFL transactions for today, the Seahawks did not make an addition to their 53-man roster to fill the spot vacated the day before by the release of DT Travian Robertson. It had been expected that the team would not make a move, so the fact they didn’t today is noteworthy only in confirming that they did not.

That means Seattle will play the Rams Sunday with 52 players on their active roster. They will have to declare six inactive Sunday to get down to the gameday roster. Two players have already been declared out — DL Demarcus Dobbs and WR Jermaine Kearse. And four others are questionable — C Max Unger, CB Tharold Simon, TE Cooper Helfet and WR Chris Matthews.

As for Robertson, he was claimed by the Redskins so he won’t be returning to Seattle’s practice squad.

Seattle did make a practice squad move, re-singing DT Jimmy Staten and releasing FB Mike Zimmer.
