RENTON, Wash. — Seahawks defensive tackle Brandon Mebane is out for the rest of the season with a torn hamstring. The team placed him on injured reserve.

FOX Sports’ Mike Garafolo  first tweeted the news around 10 a.m.

On Monday, coach Pete Carroll said Mebane would be “out for a while” with a “legit” hamstring strain sustained in Sunday’s 38-17 win over the New York Giants. However, he did not mention a tear nor did he elaborate on the length Mebane would be out.

But the Seahawks confirmed the original news Tuesday afternoon.

Mebane, a powerhouse tackle, has 20 tackles and one sack in nine games with the Seahawks this season. Six-time Pro Bowl tackle Kevin Williams is expected to fill Mebane’s roll. He has 17 tackles and a sack so far this season.

After placing Mebane on injured reserve, the Seahawks signed tight end RaShaun Allen from the Minnesota Vikings practice squad to the 53-man roster.

Allen originally signed with Seattle as a rookie free agent on May 19 and saw action at St. Louis on Oct. 19 before being released and re-signed to the practice squad on Oct. 23. He was released on Oct. 29 and signed to the Vikings practice squad on Nov. 3.

    When you say, “Kevin Williams is expected to fill Mebane’s roll,” do you mean jelly roll, egg roll, or California roll? Or did you just totally blow that word as a 3rd grader would, and use roll instead of ROLE, which would have been the correct word? #StayInSchoolDummy #SaveOurLanguage

        Yeah, that is going to leave a whole BIG hole for the Hawks to fill, especially with their four most crucial games of the season looking them right squack in the face. They need height, width, speed, and game. Big, smart, fast. Now. Perhaps it’s not so bad that they have two weeks before they rip into Carlson Palmer’s band-aid at home, because the remainder of the season is full of frequent flyer miles, with a jaunt to Philly in between.
