Seattle’s Offensive Line Loses another Starter

A starting offensive guard’s second season in the National Football League is over after one game.

According to’s Clare Farnsworth, Seattle placed Max Unger, a 2009 second-round draft pick by the Seahawks, on the team’s Injured Reserve list Tuesday.

Unger started all 16 games as a rookie for the Seahawks and was atop the depth chart prior to a toe injury that ended his 2010 season.

With Unger out, Seattle resigned guard Mansfield Wrotto.  Wrotto is a versatile veteran that saw time this preseason for the Seahawks as the team’s left tackle due to an ankle injury to Seattle’s regular starter at the position, rookie left tackle Russell Okung.  Seattle released Wrotto September 5.

After serving his league-sanctioned one-game suspension, linebacker Leroy Hill rejoined the team Tuesday.  To make room for him on the active 53-man roster, Seattle released cornerback Kennard Cox. … The team’s practice squad also has a new addition.  Out is Ross Weaver and in his place is cornerback is Cord Parks.
