The Seattle Seahawks placed veteran cornerback Marcus Trufant on injured reserve Monday.

Trufant has not played since suffering a back injury in a Week 4 loss to the Falcons.

The longest tenured Seattle player, Trufant has spent his entire nine-year career with the team. He ranks fifth in franchise history with 21 interceptions.

To fill the vacated roster spot, the Seahawks signed defensive tackle Jason Shirley.
