Seahawks Sign Jimmy Williams, Put Banny On IR

From Seahawks.com:

The Seattle Seahawks announced today that wide receiver Alex Bannister has been placed on injured reserve and have signed cornerback/returner Jimmy Williams to the 53-man roster. Seattle also released practice squad receiver Kendrick Starling and replaced him with receiver Richard Smith.
Bannister re-injured his right clavicle vs. Atlanta this past Sunday, the same clavicle that landed him on injured reserve last season after playing in seven games. He has appeared in 57 games with four starts and earned a trip to the Pro Bowl for his special teams play after the 2003 season.
Williams spent his first four seasons with San Francisco before signing a one-year unrestricted free agent deal with New Orleans this past offseason. He was released during the second round of cuts this past training camp.
He has played in 50 career games with six starts, totaling 50 tackles (39 solo), one sack, one interception and seven passes defensed. He has also returned 49 kickoffs for 1,030 yards (21.0 avg.) with a long of 50 and 55 punt returns for 576 yards (10.5 avg.) with a long of 89t.
Smith originally signed with Kansas City as an undrafted rookie free agent April 27, 2004. He played in four games last season and spent 12 weeks on the Chiefs practice squad.
