Seahawks sign OL Jeanpierre, CB Pinkard off practice squad

RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks have filled their two open roster spots, signing offensive lineman Lemuel Jeanpierre and cornerback Josh Pinkard from the practice squad ahead of Saturday's wild-card playoff game against the New Orleans Saints.

The Seahawks made the roster moves Friday. They had two open spots after placing guard Chester Pitts (head) and tight end Chris Baker (hip) on injured reserve earlier this week.

Jeanpierre was signed to the Seahawks' practice squad Sept. 6. Pinkard was signed in April as an undrafted free agent after playing for coach Pete Carroll at USC.
