Seahawks Place Kam Chancellor On IR

Kam Chancellor‘s season is officially over. The Seahawks made the inevitable decision to place the safety on injured reserve on Saturday.

The Pro Bowl safety had been out since last month because of a neck injury, and he won’t have a chance to return for his team until the 2018 season. Being shorthanded at other positions prompted the move.

Seattle promoted defensive back Mike Tyson and linebacker Kache Palacio from its practice squad and waived offensive lineman Mark Glowinski.

The Seahawks could be without both Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright on Sunday, depriving the highly regarded defense of several household names in total.

A rookie, Tyson played safety while at Cincinnati but was relocated to corner early in his NFL tenure. He’s spent the season on the Seahawks’ practice squad. The Seahawks added Palacio, a second-year linebacker, to their practice squad in November.

Glowinski has gone from 16-game starter in 2016 to swing player. He played in 10 games this season, starting two prior to second-round pick Ethan Pocic usurping him on the right guard depth chart. He’ll venture onto waivers.
