Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Kendricks hurt his knee in Monday's game and his status for Week 15 is uncertain, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Carroll would go on to say "I don't know how he got through [the game]", suggesting that there is concern on the severity of the injury. Kendricks just had his eight-game suspension lifted Dec. 3 and racked up five tackles (two solo) in Monday night's game. It will be important to track his practice availability leading up to Sunday, but if he can't go, Jacob Martin could see an increased snap count.
Kendricks could wind up playing a pivotal role down the stretch for Seattle. He's currently listed as a backup outside linebacker, but the Seahawks may use him as a change of pace edge rusher during passing downs. Despite his eight-game suspension, Kendricks was permitted to practice with Seattle in mid-November.
Kendricks (suspension) is permitted to participate in team practices and meetings as of Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Networkreports.
Kendricks is still unable to take the field of travel with the Seahawks, but this is a step towards playing. The veteran linebacker received an eight-game suspension on Oct. 2, and will be eligible to return to the field on Dec. 10 against the Vikings. Kendricks pleaded guilty to insider trading and is still scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 24, so his long term position in Seattle will remain in serious jeopardy even if he resumes playing.
The NFL has suspended Kendricks for eight games for insider trading, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.
Kendricks was suspended indefinitely on Oct. 2, and because he'll get credit for time served, he'll be able return to action on Dec. 10 against the the Vikings. According to the report, Kendricks will be eligible to practice two weeks prior to that. The linebacker spent the offseason with the Browns before being released after pleading guilty to insider trader. He was signed by Seattle in mid-September and combined for 13 tackles and two sacks.
The NFL suspended Kendricks indefinitely for insider trading Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Kendricks pleaded guilty for insider trading in early September and is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 24. The Browns parted ways with the linebacker when the team learned of his crime, though the Seahawks signed him to a one-year deal soon after, with whom Kendricks played three games, totaling 15 tackles and two sacks. Kendricks will be barred from playing for the time being until his situation is resolved, but it's fair to say his career in the NFL is in serious jeopardy
