The Seahawks announced they've activated Morgan to the 53-man roster, which meant a roster casualty was needed. That man turned out to be one of his many replacements during Morgan's nine-week absence in outside linebacker Jordan Tripp.
Tripp started in week 12 with Brock Coyle out who started for the four weeks prior until a foot injury sidelined him against the Buccaneers. The original replacement for Morgan, who was placed on Injured Reserve in week five to have sports hernia surgery, was defensive end Cassius Marsh in week six but the next week, Marsh made way for outside linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis, who then succumbed to Coyle, after an ankle injury.
In total four different players suited up at strongside linebacker in Morgan's absence with three enduring a significant injury that caused them to miss at least one game.
Ultimately, a thigh/knee issue ended Tripp's season and made way for the Morgan return -- though Morgan would have been activated this week injury to Tripp or not.
Morgan has four tackles on the season in four games of work.
