The Seahawks have made a pair of roster moves on Saturday, possibly shedding some light on the status of one of their injured players.
The team has announced that safety Steven Terrell has been promoted from the practice squad. To create the roster spot, the Seahawks waived defensive end Greg Scruggs.
Scruggs, a seventh-round pick in 2012, appeared in 11 games as a rookie. He spent the 2013 season on injured reserve, and Scruggs was inactive for Seattle’s four prior games this season.
The promotion of Terrell suggests that safety Kam Chancellor, who is questionable with a hip problem. While Terrell doesn’t play strong safety, he gives the Seahawks depth behind Earl Thomas, since his normal understudy (Jeron Johnson) would start for Chancellor, if Chancellor doesn’t play.
