Nkemdiche was signed by the Seahawks on Tuesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Nkemdiche was released in the final wave of camp cuts by Seattle, though he later landed back on the team's practice squad. He was elevated to the active roster for the last two weeks, recording nine total tackles while also shouldering a fairly heavy load along the defensive line. Nkemdiche should continue to serve as a rotational player for the remainder of the season.
Nkemdiche (undisclosed) was released by the Seahawks on Tuesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports. Nkemdiche suffered an injury late in camp and missed out on Seattle's season-opening roster. It's unclear if the injury will affect the 26-year-old's search for a new team.
Coach Pete Carroll said Nkemdiche will be out about a week after tweaking something Thursday, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Nkemdiche has only played in two games since he notched 4.5 sacks in 10 contests with Arizona in 2018. The 26-year-old suffered a torn ACL in 2019 and wasn't on a roster during the 2020 campaign. He started training camp dealing with a groin injury, but it is unclear if that is what is currently ailing him. If he is unable to go by Week 1, expect Rasheem Green or Darrell Taylor to see increased work at the start of the season.
Nkemdiche didn't practice Wednesday due to a groin injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Nkemdiche hasn't seen game action since 2019 with the Dolphins and signed with the Seahawks during the offseason. He'll have a little over a week to get healthy for the preseason opener Aug. 14 versus the Raiders.
The Seahawks signed Nkemdiche on Thursday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports. Nkemdiche, who the Cardinals made a first-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, has recorded just 4.5 sacks in his career, all of which he recorded in 2018. Since suffering a torn ACL late that season, the 26-year-old has only appeared in two games. Nkemdiche will aim to provide the Seahawks with added defensive tackle depth in 2021.
