Injuries: Seahawks place Kam Chancellor (neck) on IR

The Seattle Seahawks finally shelved their star strong safety.

Five weeks after sustaining a season-ending neck injury, Kam Chancellor was placed on injured reserve on Saturday, freeing up a roster spot cornerback Mike Tyson and linebacker Kache Palacio on Seattle's roster for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams. In a corresponding move, Seattle waived offensive lineman Mark Glowinski.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed in late November that Chancellor was going to miss the rest of the season.

Bradley McDougald has performed admirably in Chancellor's absence, but the Seahawks will continue to miss Kam's enforcing presence in the secondary as they attempt to secure a playoff berth.
