With Walter Jones not making the trip to Indianapolis, the Seattle Seahawks have signed offensive lineman Kyle Williams off their practice squad.
Veteran fullback Justin Griffith has been released to make room for Williams.
Williams started a pair of games at left tackle for the Seahawks last December and is expected to be active as the third tackle behind starters Brandon Frye and Ray Willis.
Griffith had been the Seahawks starting fullback the first two weeks, but missed last week's game with a knee injury. Second-year fullback Owen Schmitt started for Griffith last week and is currently the only fullback on the roster.
Griffith can be expected to be re-signed by the Seahawks early next week.
