Seahawks list LB Bobby Wagner out for Sunday; WR Percy Harvin, RB Marshawn Lynch rest instead of practice

The Seahawks (3-2) list Bobby Wagner as out for Sunday's game at St. Louis (1-4) because of his turf-toe injury. Coach Pete Carroll said today Wagner could miss multiple games but that he does not need surgery.

K.J. Wright is going to start at middle linebacker Sunday, with Malcolm Smith and Bruce Irvin as outside linebackers.

Carroll had already declared tight end Zach Miller (ankle surgery) and center Max Unger out for the Rams game.

Wednesday is rest day in the middle of the season for running back Marshawn Lynch. That is what the "NIR" -- not injury-related -- essentially means under the "injury" column on the attached practice report the Seahawks just issued for today's indoor workout in Renton.

Wide receiver Percy Harvin joined Lynch's rest unit today.

Carroll said cornerback Byron Maxwell's strained calf is a day-to-day proposition and that the starter opposite Richard Sherman could play this weekend. If not, Carroll has said this is Tharold Simon's chance. The second-year man returned today to practice on a limited basis for the first time since he had knee surgery early last month.

In a roster move, Seattle signed defensive back Steven Terrell to its practice squad, where he was until Saturday when the team promoted him to the active roster for the game against Dallas. Terrell played 22 snaps against the Cowboys at nickel back after Maxwell got hurt and usual nickel back Marcus Burley moved to cornerback for Maxwell.

The Seahawks also announced defensive back Eric Pinkins has returned to practice from the reserved/non-football Injury list.
