Position Listing
Garrison Smith
News
Smith (oblique) was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Smith has been on the injury report for the past week with the injury, but the team wasn't optimistic about the defensive tackles return and ultimately decided to would be best to end his season. In three games this season, the 25-year-old racked up five tackles (one solo). The Seahawks signed Sealver Siliga on Tuesday to replace Smith on the depth chart.

Injury
Oblique - Questionable for the start of training camp
Quinton Jefferson
News
Jefferson was placed on injured reserve on Wednesday after injuring his knee in practice last week.

Jefferson's injury is serious enough to require surgery, but his absence shouldn't have much of an impact as he appeared in just three games and recorded one tackle this season. Defensive end Malliciah Goodman was signed to the 53-man roster to fill the vacant spot.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kelcie McCray
News
The Seahawks acquired safety Kelcie McCray from the Chiefs on Saturday, reports USA Today. McCray totaled 11 tackles in 16 games last season. The Chiefs will receive a fifth-round draft pick.
Devin Hester
News
The Seahawks are reportedly signing Hester for their upcoming playoff run, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Hester played 12 games with the Ravens this season before being waived on Dec. 13. The veteran returner's future was in question following the release, but he will get another shot providing a spark for the Seahawks' this postseason. With Tyler Lockett injured, the team has opted to look outside of the box for a kick and punt returner by signing Hester. He racked up 466 kickoff return yards and 180 punt return yards for the Ravens this season, but also fumbled the ball five times, losing one.

C.J. Prosise
News
Prosise (shoulder) will face increased competition in the backfield after the Seahawks signed Eddie Lacy (ankle) to a one-year contract, The Seattle Times reports.

Prosise was already set to compete with Thomas Rawls, who may end up being the real loser in this equation. Prosise's pass-catching ability and quickness should ensure him of a key role in the offense if he stays healthy, whereas Rawls likely will compete with Lacy for early-down work. It's also worth noting that Lacy is far from a sure thing -- he's still recovering from ankle surgery and has reportedly put on a lot of weight (again). Prosise, meanwhile, is expected to be ready for the start of OTAs in mid-to-late April, looking to build on a promising but injury-plagued rookie season.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kevin Pierre-Louis
News
Pierre-Louis (hamstring) will not play Sunday against the Eagles, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Pierre-Louis sustained a hamstring injury last Sunday against the Patriots and was unable to practice this week. As a reserve linebacker, his absence shouldn't be a huge problem for the Seahawks' stout defensive unit to overcome.

Terrence Magee
News
Magee signed a contact with the Seahawks on Tuesday, Curtis Crabtree of UPI.com reports.

Magee signed with the Seahawks for one game in September before promptly being released. He'll operate as the team's third or fourth option at running back and isn't likely to see much time on the field beyond special teams.

Kenny Lawler
News
Lawler was added to the Seahawks practice squad Sunday, Stephen Cohen of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports.

A seventh-round rookie, Lawler failed to impress over the final two weeks of the preseason, catching just one pass for 11 yards on four targets. Despite missing some time with a groin injury, undrafted rookie Tanner McEvoy beat out Lawler and a few others for the No. 5 wideout job. Lawler might still join the active roster within the first few weeks of the season, but he'd likely just be providing depth.

Tyler Slavin
News
Slavin ended the season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury.

Slavin joined the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent last offseason and was added to injured reserve after clearing waivers in the preseason. He'll look to stay healthy and make the roster as a depth receiver and special teams player in 2017.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ross Burbank
No Updates
K.J. Wright
News
Wright totaled 10 tackles Thursday in a 24-3 win against the Rams for his fifth game with double-digit tackles this season.

Wright was limited to eight tackles total in the last two games, but he bounced back in Week 15. With 113 tackles, he is four from setting a career high.

Ronnie Shields
News
The Seahawks waived/injured Shields (Achilles) on Saturday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

The tight end room in Seattle has been devastated by injury in the early days of training camp, as Shields, Cooper Helfet (foot), and Brandon Cottom (Achilles) were all waived Saturday. If Shields passes through waivers unclaimed, the Seahawks will have the opportunity to place him on injured reserve.

Injury
Achilles - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ronald Powell
News
After going unclaimed on waivers, the Saints placed safety Vinnie Sunseri , receiver Nick Toon and linebacker Ronald Powell on injured reserve, according to The Times-Picayune.
Joe Sommers
News
Sommers spent the season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury.

Sommers was waived with an injury designation in the preseason and was moved to IR after he cleared waivers. He'll look to catch on with Seattle as a depth tight end and special teams player in 2017.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Mike Morgan
News
Morgan (groin) is active Sunday against the Packers.

Morgan -- just activated off IR prior to Week 13 -- recorded five tackles and an interception in his first game back. He'll look to make an encore in Lambeau Field.

Mohammed Seisay
News
Seisay (Achilles) resided on injured reserve for the entire 2016 season, The Seattle Times reports.

After landing in Seattle during the summer of 2015 via a trade with the Lions, Seisay missed each of the past two seasons due to injury. Both lost seasons were due to separate and unrelated injuries, however, as he missed the 2015 campaign due to a torn labrum but this past year due to a concern with his Achilles tendon. He's now set to enter the offseason as an exclusive rights free agent.

Injury
Achilles - Questionable for the start of training camp
Tanner McEvoy
News
McEvoy caught all three of his targets for 41 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Packers.

McEvoy stepped up in what was a lackluster day for many of his teammates on the offensive side, finishing second in yardage and scoring the team's only touchdown on the day with a 21-yard reception in the fourth quarter. He has been used sparingly for the majority of the year and should remain a complementary option in the offense next week against the Rams despite Sunday's performance.

Dewey McDonald
News
McDonald, an exclusive-rights free agent, signed a contract with the Seahawks on Monday, Lindsey Wisniewski of USA Today reports.

The Seahawks acquired McDonald from the Raiders for a conditional seventh-round pick last September. Primarily operating in a special teams role, McDonald went on to tally eight tackles and one deflected pass across 14 games. He'll be back in the mix to compete for a depth role at linebacker this summer.

Shaneil Jenkins
News
Jenkins (knee) was placed on the Cowboys' injured reserve list on Tuesday

Jenkins was well on his way towards earning a roster spot before going down, as he was one of few promising candidates to help rebuild Dallas' injury-marred defensive line. Now, he'll presumably take aim at a year-2017 return.

Perrish Cox
News
Cox signed a contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday, NFL.com reports.

Although Cox started 22 games for the Titans over the last two seasons, very few teams have had any interest in him since his November release. Now in Seattle, he'll fight for a depth role in the secondary in advance of the 2017 campaign.

Kam Chancellor
News
Chancellor (ankle) is walking on his ankle one week after having bone spurs removed, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Chancellor had minor ankle surgery last week and isn't expected to be held out of offseason practices. He appears to be on track with his recovery to this point and shouldn't be limited with the injury much longer.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Doug Baldwin
News
Baldwin secured five of nine targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 36-20 divisional-round loss to the Falcons.

Baldwin notched the final touchdown of the Seahawks' 2016 campaign with a 31-yard scoring reception in the fourth quarter. Otherwise, it was a fairly ordinary outing for the sixth-year pro, who recorded four catches for 49 yards in addition to the touchdown. Russell Wilson completed only 17 passes overall on the afternoon, and Baldwin did see the most targets from him by far. The sixth-year pro posted a career high in receptions (94), targets (126) and yards (1,128) in 2016, but managed only half of the career-high 14 scores he'd tallied the season prior.

Terence Garvin
News
Garvin signed with the Seahawks on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Garvin is the second linebacker the Seahawks have signed in as many days after the club agreed to terms with Michael Wilhoite on Thursday. The 26-year-old Garvin spent last season with the Redskins and was particularly strong on special teams, where he racked up 285 total snaps. Look for Garvin to have a similar role with the Seahawks this season given that Seattle's starting front seven appears to be set for the most part.

Nick Vannett
News
Vannett caught both of his targets Sunday against the Panthers, totaling 25 yards.

Vannett is not going to see much action and targets as long as Jimmy Graham is healthy. Luke Willson is expected to return from a knee injury in Week 14.

Michael Bennett
News
Bennett agreed to a three-year contract extension with Seattle Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

2016 was the third year of a four-year, $32 million contract that Bennett signed with Seattle in 2014. The extension will keep him in Seattle through the 2020 season, after which he'll be 35 years old. The exact details of the deal haven't yet been disclosed. Bennett has recorded 32 tackles and 4.0 sacks in 10 games played so far this season.

Cassius Marsh
News
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said defensive end Cassius Marsh is 100 percent after recovering from a broken foot sustained this past October. 

“He’s in great shape,” Carroll said, via ESPN.com. “That’s a tremendous addition. It’s like a brand new draft choice for us because he didn’t really get a chance to get started last year. Cassius is a really high-energy, creative and productive football player. We can’t wait to get him out there. He’s in great shape and looks terrific.”

Marsh only played in five games a season ago and recorded five tackles. 

Troymaine Pope
News
Pope (ankle), an exclusive-rights free agent, was tendered by the Seahawks, 247Sports.com reports.

Pope finished the 2016 campaign on injured reserve, but when healthy the explosive tailback will compete for slotting on the depth chart behind Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise (shoulder).

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Cliff Avril
News
Avril underwent surgery after seeing a 'core injuries speciallist' Tuesday, Conor Orr of Around the NFL reports.

The specific type of surgery has not yet been clarified, but the fact that it had not been heard about until after completion suggests that it was not anything major. Avril was third in the league with 11.5 sacks in 2016 and figures to be a disruptive force for the Seahawks again in 2017 opposite Michael Bennett on the defensive line.

Injury
Abdomen - Questionable for the start of training camp
George Farmer
News
Farmer signed a futures contract with the Seahawks on Monday, 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Farmer spent time with Seattle during the regular season and was used primarily as a third-down back in the two games he saw live action. However, he was ousted the first week of December in order to supply fullback help when the team's starter went down. He'll enter the offseason buried on the depth chart.

Will Pericak
News
The Broncos released the following players on Sunday: Linebacker Jamar Chaney, running back Brennan Clay, wide receiver Greg Hardin, linebacker Jerrell Harris, offensive tackle Winston Justice, safety Charles Mitchell, defensive tackle Will Pericak, quarterback Bryn Renner, defensive end Chase Vaughn, running back Jerodis Williams and wide receiver Greg Wilson.
Tavaris Barnes
News
Barnes spent the year on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury.

Barnes was waived with an injury designation in August and landed on the Seahawks IR after clearing waivers. He'll have a chance to make the tail end of the roster in 2017 as a special teams player and depth defender.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Alex Collins
News
Collins rushed for 55 yards on seven carries and added a four-yard catch in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Nearly half of Collins' yardage came late in the third quarter on a 26-yard burst up the gut. It was the power back's longest run of the season and it came just in time, with starter Thomas Rawls nursing a shoulder injury. Rawls' injury will be worth monitoring heading into Seattle's playoff matchup against Detroit. Even if he's back healthy, Collins should be in line for a fair amount of action, having recorded at least eight touches in three of the past four weeks.

Richard Sherman
News
According to coach Pete Carroll, Sherman played through an MCL injury over the second half of this season, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Sherman was regularly given days off from practice over the past couple months, which, in hindsight, could've been related to his knee problem. While Carroll revealed Sherman carried an MCL injury, he didn't reveal the exact nature of the ailment or how it would be treated this offseason. Regardless of his injury, Sherman didn't miss a game this season, and finished with 58 tackles, 13 pass deflections and four interceptions.

Injury
Knee - MCL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Kelvin Taylor
News
Taylor signed a futures contract with the Seahawks on Monday, 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Taylor, the 49ers' 2016 sixth-rounder out of Florida, was with the Seahawks for a couple weeks in December in order to provide depth at running back but didn't last long. He'll look to compete for a depth/special teams role in the offseason behind Thomas Rawls, C.J. Prosise and Alex Collins.

Steven Terrell
News
The Seahawks announced a several of roster moves on Tuesday, according to the Everett Herald. The team placed defensive tackle Jordan Hill on injured reserve with a calf injury. In a corresponding move, Seattle signed defensive back Steven Terrell off the practice squad to fill Hill's roster spot. Defensive tackle Jimmy Staten was also signed to the practice squad.

Hill played in 13 games, recording 19 tackles, 5.5 sacks and an interception.

Christian French
Injury
J.D. McKissic
News
McKissic was claimed by the Seahawks on Tuesday, Curtis Crabtree of UPI.com reports.

McKissic was waived by the Falcons on Monday, just three days after being signed to their active roster. He's yet to play in an NFL game but could see some time on special teams for Seattle. His only real chance to play on offense will be if injuries to Thomas Rawls and Alex Collins force the team to use him.

Oday Aboushi
News
Jets offensive lineman Oday Aboushi was waived by the Jets on Wednesday, Seth Walder of The New York Daily News reports.

His release comes one day after he was reinstated from a suspension stemming from a violation of the league's substance abuse policy. Aboushi started 10 games for the Jets last season, but will now look to catch on with another team and provide depth along the offensive line.

Jermaine Kearse
News
Kearse secured one of three targets for eight yards in Saturday's 36-20 divisional-round loss to the Falcons.

Kearse was essentially a non-factor once again, with his three targets tying for the second lowest among the Seahawks' receivers and tight ends. The fifth-year pro had a quiet postseason, notching just three receptions on six targets for 22 yards, although he did see teammate Doug Baldwin inadvertently steal a touchdown from him in Seattle's wild-card victory over the Lions. Despite his minimal involvement in the playoffs, Kearse did wrap up the 2016 campaign with his second-most receptions (41) in a season, although he needed a career-high 90 targets to achieve them.

Frank Clark
News
Clark totaled 1.5 sacks Thursday in a 24-3 win against the Rams, giving him nine sacks this season.

Clark is fifth among defensive linemen in sacks. He doesn't start, but the Seahawks rotate their defensive linemen enough that it gives Clark a decent number of snaps each game.

Neiko Thorpe
News
The Seahawks re-signed Thorpe on Tuesday, Seahawks.com rpeorts.

Thorpe signed with the team in September of the 2016 season, and quickly established himself as one of their top special teams players. He also saw some time as Seattle's third cornerback when starter DeShawn Shead was briefly sidelined. Thorpe figures to resume his role as a key special teams player in 2017, while also providing depth at corner. He could have an opportunity to compete for a starting job if the aforementioned Shead, who suffered a serious knee injury during the playoffs, is not ready when the season begins.

Trevone Boykin
News
Boykin was arrested Monday morning on charges of suspicion of possession of marijuana and public intoxication, Eline de Bruijn of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Boykin, who starred at TCU in college, was back in Dallas when a car he was riding in crashed into a bar and injured five people. Although Boykin was a passenger in the vehicle, he was still arrested and taken to a local jail. Not only will Boykin's legal situation now have to play out, but he could also face league discipline for his alleged role in Monday's incident.

Luke Joeckel
News
Jaguars OT Luke Joeckel is inactive Sunday against the Dolphins, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports. 

Joeckel, the starting left tackle, will give way to his backup, Sam Young. His absence will provide a slight boost to the Miami defense.

Injury
Knee - ACL + MCL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Garry Gilliam
News
The Seahawks have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Super Bowl: B.J. Daniels, Marcus Burley, Patrick Lewis, Keavon Milton, David King, Garry Gilliam and Kevin Norwood, the team announced.

Gilliam caught a fake field goal touchdown during the NFC Championship Game for Seattle.

The game is currently pick'em between Seattle and New England.

Marcus Lucas
News
The Panthers filled up their practice squad, signing cornerback Carrington Byndom, linebackers Adarius Glanton and D.J. Smith, receivers Tavarres King and Marcus Lucas, safety Robert Leste, running back Darrin Reaves, offensive tackle Andrew McDonald and defensive tackles Micanor Regis and Casey Walker.
Tyler Lockett
News
Head coach Pete Carroll suggested Lockett (leg) could be ready for the start of training camp, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Lockett remains ahead of schedule in his recovery from a fractured left fibula suffered in Week 16. He underwent surgery in late January, with the expectation he'd miss the team's offseason program and possibly some of training camp, but would still have time to get ready for Week 1. A return for the start of camp would provide Lockett with plenty of time to make up any lost ground in the battle for Seattle's No. 2 wide receiver job. Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson also figure to compete for the role.

Injury
Leg - Questionable for the start of training camp
Eddie Lacy
News
Although the Seahawks will make a concerted effort to ensure Lacy (ankle) stays in shape, head coach Pete Carroll said he wants the 26-year-old running back to stay big, ESPN's Sheil Kapadia reports.

According to Kapadia, Lacy's target weight will be in the 240s, which is probably around where he was in 2016 prior to suffering a season-ending ankle injury in Week 5. According to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the 26-year-old running back checked in at 267 pounds during one of his free agent visits, putting him 20-to-25 pounds north of where the Seahawks want him by Week 1. It appears Lacy's weight will be a big story for the second straight offseason, just as it was at this time last year when he was coming off a disappointing 2015 campaign in which he was visibly hampered by his excess weight. A contract season provided plenty of motivation last time around, and the Seahawks are hoping for the same after signing him to a one-year, $5.5 million deal that includes $3 million guaranteed. Lacy is nearly five months removed from surgery which carried an estimated rehab timetable of 4-to-6 months, but the extra weight he's carrying probably doesn't help the process. While his contract makes him the early favorite to lead Seattle's backfield, Lacy has serious issues surrounding his health and conditioning, in addition to facing competition from teammates Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise (shoulder).

Rodney Coe

Arthur Brown
News
Brown signed a contract with the Seahawks on Friday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

The Seahawks entered the offseason in need of depth at linebacker and they have found just that in Brown. While the former second-rounder has struggled staying healthy the past two seasons, he'll be able to provide Seattle with an instant boost on special teams and serve as a solid insurance policy for MLB Bobby Wagner.

Ahtyba Rubin

Rubin (wrist) does not appear on the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Rubin sprained his wrist in Saturday's game versus the Cardinals so his absence from the injury report Wednesday evidences the injury likely isn't serious. Barring some sort of setback, Rubin appears in line to be ready for the Seahawks' season finale Sunday versus the Niners.

Blair Walsh
News
Walsh signed a contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Walsh struggled mightily in 2016, missing four extra points and making 12-of-16 field goal attempts prior to being released in November. Steven Hauschka, the Seahawks' kicker in 2016, will be a free agent upon the end of the league year, meaning Walsh could be set to handle the kicking duties in Seattle in 2017.

Will Tukuafu
News
The Seahawks placed Tukuafu (concussion) on injured reserve Tuesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Tukuafu has been sidelined since sustaining a concussion in Week 13. With his season over, Marcel Reese will now serve as the lead blocker for Thomas Rawls.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brandon Cottom
News
The Seahawks waived/injured Cottom (Achilles) on Saturday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

During Wednesday's training camp practice, Cottom sustained a potential Achilles tear. The Seahawks' move Saturday seems to confirm those fears, but the fullback/tight end will land on their injured reserve list, if he clears waivers.

Achilles - Questionable for the start of training camp
Russell Wilson
News
Wilson completed 17 of 30 passes for 225 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 36-20 divisional-round loss to the Falcons. He also gained 49 yards on six rushes and was sacked three times, including once for a safety.

Wilson and the Seahawks were lights out to the open the game, putting together a 14-play, 89-yard drive that consumed 8:34 off the clock and culminated in a seven-yard scoring dart to Jimmy Graham. However, it was largely downhill from there, with an injury to right guard Germain Ifedi kick-starting a series of unfortunate events. Rookie Rees Odhiambo, who took over for Ifedi, inadvertently stepped on Wilson's foot with the Seahawks backed up to their seven-yard line after a penalty wiped out an 80-yard punt return by Devin Hester, leading to a safety. Wilson subsequently sandwiched fourth-quarter interceptions around a 31-yard touchdown to Doug Baldwin, with the second pick coming with 2:15 remaining and sealing Seattle's fate. Wilson did lead the Seahawks in rushing on the afternoon, and his yardage total on the ground actually was the second highest he'd amassed all season. Despite the disappointing finish to the campaign, the Wisconsin product did set career highs in completions (353), attempts (546) and passing yardage (4,219) in 2016.

Jeff Fuller
News
The Dolphins released nine players including guard Lance Louis, who played in 41 games for the Bears over his first four seasons. Also cut were linebacker Michael Clay, wideouts Jeff Fuller, Julius Pruitt and Andrell Smith, defensive end Emeka Onyenekwu, linebackers Nathan Williams and David Hinds and fullback Jorvorskie Lane.
Injury
Tre Madden
News
Madden was waived by the Seahawks Saturday, Adam Caplan of the ESPN reports.

The 22-year-old back signed with the Seahawks in May as an undrafted free agent. Madden was eyeing a role at fullback with the club, but the team has ultimately decided to part ways with the USC product.

John Lunsford
News
Lunsford signed a contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday.

Lunsford signed a future contract with the Bucs in January but was let go once Tampa Bay agreed to a deal with veteran Nick Folk in March. Now in Seattle, the Liberty product will compete with Blair Walsh for what will likely be one roster spot.

Rodney Smith
News
Smith signed a reserve/future contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Curtis Crabtree of the Associated Press reports.

Smith hasn't played in a game since 2014, failing to make an active roster the past two seasons. He'll look to carve out a role on special teams and at the bottom of the receiver depth chart in Seattle in 2017.

Jeron Johnson
News
Johnson was cut by the Chiefs on Friday, Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The 28-year-old safety spent his first four seasons in the league with the Seahawks before spending last season with the Redskins. He was fifth on the depth chart for strong safety, so figured to have a long shot making the final roster.

Michael Wilhoite
News
Wilhoite signed with the Seahawks on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The ex-49er will stay in the division by inking a deal with Seattle. Wilhoite appeared in all 16 games with the 49ers last season, recording 55 total tackles and forcing one fumble. He figures to add depth at the right outside linebacker spot behind starter K.J. Wright.

Jon Ryan
News
Ryan (concussion) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is no longer listed on the Seahawks' injury report.

It appears Ryan will be a full go Saturday after being knocked out of Seattle's Week 15 matchup with the Rams. He was placed in the league's concussion protocol after taking a hard hit in the open field at the end of a long run against the Rams, but Friday's injury report suggests that he'll be ready to play against the Cardinals.

Germain Ifedi
News
Ifedi sustained a high-ankle sprain during Saturday's divisional-round loss in Atlanta, Danny O'Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

The Seahawks lost their starting right guard on their first possession, and while he attempted to return just before halftime, Ifedi was unable to remain in the game. Now knocked out of the playoffs, the rookie will have plenty of time to get healthy for the offseason program.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Robert Myers
News
Myers was signed by the Seahawks on Friday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Myers, a 2015 fifth-round pick out of Tennessee State, will look to secure a spot on the Seahawks' offensive line throughout the offseason. His versatility is a plus, while the team may elect to try him out primarily at right tackle.

Malcolm Johnson
News
Johnson (concussion) returned to practice on Monday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Johnson sustained a concussion over a week ago, forcing him to sit out of the first week of practice. He has now passed concussion protocol testing and can return to the field. He will be eligible to play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Packers.

Stanley Jean-Baptiste
News
Jean-Baptiste (shoulder) is expected to have a chance at a roster spot in 2017 after spending 2016 on injured reserve, Stephen Cohen of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports.

Jean-Baptiste was waived with an injury designation and placed on IR after he cleared waivers in August. The team expects him to compete for a depth secondary and special teams role in 2017.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Justin Britt
News
Britt (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Britt was expected to return in Week 13, and he looks on track to do so. If he is indeed able to play Sunday, he should take over as the Seahawks' starting center.

Luke Willson
News
Willson re-signed Friday with the Seahawks on a one-year contract, ESPN.com's Adam Caplan reports.

The 27-year-old has been a fixture in two-tight end sets for much of his four seasons with the Seahawks, but he's provided most of his usefulness as a blocker. Willson was targeted just 21 times in 11 appearances in 2016, and he's unlikely to see much more volume during the upcoming campaign so long as Jimmy Graham enjoys relatively sound health.

Jamel Johnson
No Updates
Marcel Reece
News
Reece (foot) does not appear on the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Reece injured his foot in last weekend's tilt with the Lions. However, after practicing both Tuesday and now Wednesday, he appears on track to suit up Sunday against the Falcons.

Jimmy Graham
News
Graham admitted at last weekend's Pro Bowl that he "barely practiced" during the 2016 season, Liz Mathews of USA Today reports.

After suffering a torn patellar tendon in Week 12 of his first campaign in Seattle, Graham faced an uphill battle to regain even a semblance of his former standing among the top tight ends in the NFL. Indeed, he didn't make an appearance last preseason and earned just 17 of 82 offensive snaps in the 2016 season opener. Ramping up his workload as the weeks ticked by, he notched the first of three 100-yard efforts in Week 3 and scattered six end-zone visits throughout a complete 16-game slate. The preceding was possible due to Graham's regular appearances on the injury report, typically due to non-injury, suggesting that rest was the recipe for his success. There's no telling if this is his high-water mark as a Seahawk, but he will turn 31 in November, meaning he could be hard-pressed to replicate a 65/923/6 line due to a combination of his age and medical history.

Thomas Rawls
News
Rawls will have to compete for work in a backfield that includes C.J. Prosise (shoulder) and recent free-agent signing Eddie Lacy (ankle), The Seattle Times reports.

Rawls looks like the odd man out at first glance, as Lacy signed a one-year, $5.5 million contract with $3 million guaranteed, while Prosise offers an element of pass-catching and quickness that the other two running backs can't match. However, Prosise and Lacy were limited to just 11 combined games last season while battling injuries, with the latter also carrying major concerns regarding his weight. The addition of Lacy is undoubtedly discouraging for Rawls' 2017 prospects, but it's far from a death blow.

Tony McDaniel
News
According to head coach Pete Carroll, McDaniel (concussion) will play Saturday against the Falcons, John Boyle of team's official site reports.

McDaniel did not take part in the wild-card win over the Lions last weekend due to a concussion he suffered in Week 17. Now cleared to play, the veteran will bolster Seattle's defensive line with a return Saturday and will likely resume his role as a starter. Should he have his reps monitored, look for Jarran Reed to see increased action.

Tyler Ott
News
Ott was signed by the Seahawks on Tuesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

With regular long snapper Nolan Frese (ankle) placed on injured reserve, the team brought in Ott to take over long snapping duties during the postseason. He previously played with the Bengals this season.

Paul Richardson
News
Richardson secured four of five targets for 83 yards in Saturday's 36-20 divisional-round loss to the Falcons.

Richardson made another spectacular grab in the second quarter that initially appeared to result in a 52-yard touchdown, but the play was shortened to a 33-yard gain on review after it was determined that the third-year wideout was down by contact at the Falcons' 19-yard line. Richardson was nevertheless impressive throughout the game, and his play during the late-season absence of Tyler Lockett (leg) certainly gives the Seahawks plenty of reason for optimism heading into the offseason. The 24-year-old wrapped up the 2016 season with 21 receptions (36 targets) for 288 yards and a touchdown, along with one rush for five yards.

Jeremy Lane
News
Lane will compete with DeShawn Shead to start at right cornerback, the Seattle Times reports.

Lane missed all but the final six games last season recovering from a broken wrist and torn ACL in the Super Bowl. He's healthy and likely the favorite for the starting job. The Seahawks, though, might rather him play nickelback, where he's been effective. Brandon Browner is also in the mix.

George Fant
No Updates
Bobby Wagner
News
Wagner totaled 10 tackles Saturday in a loss to the Cardinals, breaking the franchise record for tackles in a season with a league-leading 155.

Wagner surpassed Chad Brown, who had 149 tackles in 1998. It was also Wagner's ninth game this season with at least 10 tackles.

Demetrius McCray
News
The Jaguars are not in good shape in the standings, but they are in good shape otherwise. All eight players on their Friday injury report at questionable or probable.

The former category consists of linebackers LaRoy Reynolds (neck) and Jeremiah George (ankle). The probables are quarterback Blake Bortles (wrist), defensive ends Andre Branch (groin) and Chris Clemons (knee), safety Josh Evans (elbow), cornerback Demetrius McCray (ankle) and wideout Cecil Shorts (illness).

Kasen Williams
News
Williams was added to Seattle's active roster Saturday.

Seattle is dealing with some injuries to its receiving corps, most notably with Doug Baldwin (hamstring) questionable and Jermaine Kearse (calf) probable heading into Sunday, so Williams has been added to the active roster. Still, it's a long shot that Williams sees much in the way of playing time Sunday provided that Baldwin and Kearse are ultimately able to take the field against the Rams. Anthony McCoy was placed on injured reserve Saturday, opening a roster spot for Williams.

Pierre Desir
News
Desir was waived by the Chargers on Saturday.

Desir was waived to clear a roster spot for wideout Isaiah Burse. Steve Williams and Trevor Williams will handle all the backup corner back reps with Desir gone.

DeShawn Shead
News
Shead (knee) re-signed Friday with the Seahawks on a one-year contract, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Shead had also attracted interest from the Bills in free agency, but with the Seahawks submitting a competitive offer, the cornerback agreed to return to the only team he's played with in his career. The 28-year-old's health is somewhat of a question mark heading into training camp, as he sustained a left ACL injury during the Seahawks' divisional playoff loss to the Falcons. If Shead is back at full strength for the start of the season, he'll likely serve in a backup capacity in the secondary.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Mark Glowinski
News
The Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.

Picks that have signed are:

Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.

The only picks yet to sign with the team are second-round defensive end Frank Clark and third-round receiver Tyler Lockett.

Rees Odhiambo

Bradley McDougald
News
McDougald is signing with Seattle on a one-year, $2 million contract, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

McDougald fills a clear need for a Seahawks team that previously didn't have any veteran depth at safety behind the phenomenal starting duo of Kam Chancellor (ankle) and Earl Thomas (leg) -- both of whom are recovering from surgery. It's a bit surprising McDougald had to settle for such a modest contract and a backup role, coming off a 2016 season in which he recorded a career-high 91 tackles (79 solo) while starting all 16 games for Tampa Bay. He also had 87 tackles (67 solo) and played all 16 games the previous year, but his work in pass coverage has always been questionable, which explains the inability to find a better offer.

Jarran Reed
News
Reed (hip) is questionable for the Seahawks' Week 4 game against the Jets, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

It's unclear when Reed suffered the hip injury, as is the severity of the ailment. Regardless, his status will be confirmed before kickoff.

Bradley Sowell
News
Sowell (knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Seahawks' digital reporter John Boyle reports.

Sowell has been sidelined the previous three games with a knee injury, but appears to be trending towards a return for Sunday's matchup with Eagles.

DeAndre Elliott
News
Elliott (hamstring) is out for Monday's game against the Bills, Liz Mathews of ESPN reports.

Elliott was held out of practice all week, hinting that he is still a ways away from returning to game action. The rookie is merely a depth option for the Seahawks at cornerback, so his absence shouldn't affect Seattle's defensive effectiveness as a whole.

Earl Thomas
News
Head coach Pete Carroll said Thomas (leg) is way ahead of schedule in his recovery from a broken tibia, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports.

Thomas suffered the injury in Week 13 and was placed on injured reserve shortly thereafter. He mentioned the possibility of retirement on his Twitter account in December, and while broken tibias do require a lengthy rehab process, Thomas has apparently moved past any thought of hanging his cleats up. Though he may be absent from the offseason program and limited in training camp, he seems to be on track for Week 1.
