Parkinson didn't receive a target in Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Steelers. Parkinson played just four snaps on offense because both Gerald Everett and Will Dissly were active. As long Dissly and Everett are healthy, Parkinson will likely handle a limited role on offense.
Parkinson caught one pass (two targets) for one yard in Thursday's 26-17 loss to the Rams. Parkinson logged 35 of 65 offensive snaps with Gerald Everett (COVID-19 protocol) out of the lineup, but he didn't make much of an impact in the passing game. Everett should be back in the lineup Week 6 against the Steelers, so Parkinson will move back to the No. 3 tight end role.
Parkinson didn't receive a target in Sunday's 28-21 win over the 49ers. Parkinson logged 38 of 56 offensive snaps (68 percent) because Gerald Everett was on the COVID-19 list. The 22-year-old tight end drew high praise from head coach Pete Carroll during training camp before suffering a foot injury. However, his role this season will likely be minimal once Everett returns.
The Seahawks activated Parkinson (foot) from injured reserve Saturday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports. Parkinson was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday and will be active against the 49ers on Sunday. The 22-year-old tight end battled his foot injury throughout his rookie season, so it's unclear what type of role he can play for Seattle's offense. With Gerald Everett (illness) likely unavailable Sunday, Parkinson will be needed for depth behind Will Dissly and Tyler Mabry.
Parkinson (foot) is expected to return from the Seahawks' injured reserve and suit up for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports. While the expectation is that he will return, Parkinson hasn't officially been activated yet. With Gerald Everett (illness) likely unavailable, Parkinson would provide depth at tight end behind Will Dissly and Tyler Mabry if ultimately given the green light.
