Siliga was brought back by the Seahawks after Garrison Smith (oblique) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. The defensive tackle was given an injury settlement in the preseason after he suffered a calf injury during offseason training. Now healthy, Siliga could make an impact immediately with the team playing behind starter Ahtyba Rubin.
After signing with the team as a free agent in the offseason, Siliga opened camp on Seattle's NFI list with a calf injury and aggravated the injury in warmups before the preseason opener. No timeline has been provided for his return.
Siliga was dealing with a calf injury earlier during training camp, but appears ready to return to the practice field. He's expected to provide depth at defensive tackle this season, likely sharing second-team reps with rookie Jarran Reed. The Seahawks' preseason opener is set for Saturday versus the Chiefs, although it remains to be seen if Siliga will be pushed into action that quick.
Siliga did not practice Tuesday due to a calf injury, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
Siliga joins Jimmy Graham (knee) and Thomas Rawls (ankle) as the lone Seahawks to watch training camp from the sidelines. No timeline has been provided for Siliga's return, but Will Pericak and Montese Overton figure to see additional second-team reps in his absence.
