  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Expects to be ready for camp

    Nwosu (pectoral) indicated Wednesday that he "absolutely" expects to be ready for the start of training camp, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Nwosu is coming off a season-ending torn pectoral that he suffered this past October, but the edge rusher appears to be progressing well -- barring any setbacks, the 27-year-old is poised to reclaim his key role in the Seahawks defense this coming season. Prior to his injury, Nwosu -- who racked up a career high 9.5 sacks in 2022 -- recorded 16 tackles and 2.0 sacks in six regular-season games last year.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Notches third two-sack game

    Nwosu posted four solo tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Rams. Nwosu recorded his third two-sack performance in five weeks, and he has extended his career high to nine sacks in his first season with the Seahawks. His previous career high is five sacks, so this is a significant breakout for his fifth NFL season. At just 25 years old, Nwosu certainly has room to grow, but this has been an excellent season for IDP purposes.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Logs full practice Thursday

    Nwosu (shoulder) was listed as a full participant on the Seahawks' injury report Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Nwosu appeared to suffer a shoulder injury during Sunday's loss to San Francisco. The linebacker logged four tackles and one pass defended while he saw fewer snaps than in Week 1 potentially due to the issue. With Nwosu back at practice fully, it's likely his snap count will see an uptick Sunday against the Falcons.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Picks up injury

    Nwosu (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant on the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports. Nwosu is dealing with an unspecified shoulder injury following Sunday's 27-7 loss to the 49ers, in which he tallied four tackles and one pass defended. The 25-year-old did play a smaller percentage of his team's defensive snaps (71 percent) in Week 2 compared to Seattle's season opener (89 percent), though it's unclear if this was due to any physical limitations related to his shoulder. Nwosu signed a two-year, $20 million deal as a free agent with the Seahawks this offseason, and he figures to play a prominent pass-rushing role when healthy this season.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Excellent debut

    Nwosu recorded seven tackles (three solo), a sack, a pass breakup and a forced fumble in Monday's 17-16 win against the Broncos. Nwosu played 59 of 66 defensive snaps (89 percent). He and Darrell Taylor (54 snaps) are the top edge rushers, but Nwosu had the more impressive stat line as Taylor failed to post a stop. Nwosu should have some IDP appeal moving forward, but it's worth noting his career highs are 40 tackles and five sacks.

  • Seahawks' Uchenna Nwosu: Lands two-year deal

Nwosu appeared in all 17 games for the Chargers in 2021, recording 40 tackles (24 solo), five sacks, an interception, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. The 25-year-old should have a chance to carve out a significant role in Seattle's defense in 2022.

  • Chargers' Uchenna Nwosu: Sidelined for Week 16

Through 13 games, Nwosu has recorded career highs in tackles (33) and sacks (4.5). Isaac Rochell is expected to start at defensive end in Nwosu's place Sunday.

  • Chargers' Uchenna Nwosu: Deemed questionable

  • Chargers' Uchenna Nwosu: Nursing abdominal injury

    Nwosu was sidelined at Tuesday's practice due to an abdominal injury, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Nwosu had wrap around his abdomen as he sat out practice. He is reportedly just sore, so it makes sense for the team to let him rest in order to avoid a lingering issue. The 22-year-old suited up for all 16 games as a rookie on the Chargers last year including three starts. He is currently projected to start opposite Thomas Davis at outside linebacker come Week 1.

    Nwosu will start at outside linebacker against the Browns on Sunday, Eric D. Williams of reports. Jatavis Brown (groin) and Kyzir White (knee) are both inactive Sunday, prompting Nwosu to get the starting nod. Nwosu -- a 2018 second-round pick -- has eight tackles and a sack this season, but hasn't topped 19 defensive snaps in a game, which is likely to change at Cleveland.
