McDougald signed a one-year contract with the Seahawks last spring and proved an important piece with Kam Chancellor (neck) missing the final seven games of the season. The 27-year-old totaled nine starts on the season and will enter the 2018 season as a free agent.
McDougald (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
McDougald was considered questionable to play with a knee injury. The sixth-year safety is on a hot streak of late, averaging 10 tackles and one pass defensed in his last three games.
McDougald is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a knee injury, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
McDougald's was a full participant at Friday's practice but was a non-participant the rest of the week. The 27-year-old appears on track to play Week 16 and should continue to see a heavy workload in the absence of Kam Chancellor (neck).
McDougald's tackle total marked his second highest on the season. The 27-year-old has been making his presence felt at strong safety since Kam Chancellor (neck) was placed on injured reserve. He was one of two Seahawks defenders to play all 71 defensive snaps and should continue seeing a heavy workload in Week 16 versus the Cowboys.
McDougald will start at strong safety if Kam Chancellor (neck) is out for Monday's game against the Falcons, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
McDougald filled in for Earl Thomas (hamstring) at free safety the past two weeks, notching nine tackles and one pass defensed. With Thomas expected to return and Chancellor expected to sit, McDouglad should have a few more tackle opportunities in a role that allows him to come up into the box. Chancellor has averaged at least 5.4 tackles per game every season since his rookie campaign in 2010. McDougald had similar production as a starter for Tampa Bay the past two seasons.
