The Seahawks announced a several of roster moves on Tuesday, according to the Everett Herald. The team placed defensive tackle Jordan Hill on injured reserve with a calf injury. In a corresponding move, Seattle signed defensive back Steven Terrell off the practice squad to fill Hill's roster spot. Defensive tackle Jimmy Staten was also signed to the practice squad.
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) is expected to return to practice Thursday.
Lynch has missed two games due to a hamstring injury, but a return to drills Thursday would put him on pace to fulfill head coach Pete Carroll's belief that the veteran back will play Sunday against the Panthers. If he does so, he would presumably take on the bulk of the RB touches, even in a backfield with Fred Jackson (ankle) and Thomas Rawls at the Seahawks' disposal.
