Kendricks (lower leg) had his April 4 sentencing hearing postponed without setting a date for the future Monday, Andy Patton of USA Today reports.
Kendricks pleaded guilty to insider trading, and will await his fate until further notice. The California product re-signed with the Seahawks this offseason on a one-year $4 million contract. Kendricks could certainly miss the 2019 season due to jail time, and the team prepared for that, making his contract non-guaranteed. Kendricks would likely be in line for a starting role on the Seahawks' linebacker corps if eligible, otherwise K.J. Wright would see a boost in playing time.
Kendricks pleaded guilty to insider trading and is scheduled to be sentenced April 4, so his future with the Seahawks remains unclear despite re-signing with the team. The 28-year-old is expected to play a starting role if he's able to suit up for 2019, and could replace K.J. Wright at weakside linebacker in the event that Wright ultimately leaves in free agency.
Kendricks (lower leg) has had his federal court sentencing date moved from Jan. 25 to April 4, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Kendricks and fellow middle linebacker K.J. Wright are both set to become free agents unless they re-sign with Seattle before March 13. It appears that the Seahawks will be required to address the situation before officially knowing whether Kendricks, who pleaded guilty to insider trading and is now scheduled to be sentenced April 4, will be available for 2019 and beyond. Kendricks played four games with Seattle in 2018, missing time due to a suspension and a season-ending fractured fibula. The 28-year-old looked the part of a starter while on the field, accumulating 19 tackles, two sacks and one pass defended. Despite Kendricks' solid play, it's reasonable to speculate that the ambiguity surrounding his future availability could supply the Seahawks with some incentive to prioritize re-signing Wright.
Kendricks (lower leg) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Kendricks was confirmed to have suffered a fractured tibia in Monday's win over the Vikings, and his placement on injured reserve officially brings an end to his season. The 28-year-old played in only four games prior to the injury due to suspension, totaling 20 tackles and two sacks for the season.
Kendricks (lower leg) broke his tibia Monday against the Vikings and will miss the remainder of the season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
It was originally believed after Monday night's game that Kendricks had sustained a knee injury, but now it's known to be a lower leg issue. Kendricks had his eight-game suspension lifted Dec. 3 and Monday night was his first game since Week 4, and now he will miss the remainder of the season. Jacob Martin will likely fill in for the California product to finish the season.
