Daniels was promoted to the 53-man roster from the practice squad Wednesday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
With Will Dissly (kneecap) landing on injured reserve after undergoing surgery for a patella injury, the Seahawks are extremely thin at the tight end position. Daniels joins the team as the second option at the position and could see some playing time in Sunday's contest against the Rams. He served as a special teams contributor prior to being waived before last week's game against the Cardinals and landing on the practice squad.
Daniels was waived by the Seahawks on Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Daniels was traded to Seattle from the Colts prior to the season commencing. However, he was only available as a depth tight end and never saw the field. He could potentially revert to the Seahawks' practice squad assuming he clears waivers.
The two teams both addressed relative areas of weakness, giving Daniels a shot to stick around on an NFL roster early in the season. He'll still be low on the depth chart and could be expandable in the coming weeks.
Daniels was a full participant in practice Tuesday.
Daniels' full session to begin Week 16 preparations offers optimism about his chances of suiting up Saturday against the Ravens, though the coaching staff would surely like to see him put in another full practice or two to feel better about his availability. The reserve tight end has missed the last four games with the hamstring issue and shouldn't be expected to play a major role in the passing game if he suits up Saturday.
Daniels (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Broncos.
It marks the fourth straight game Daniels has missed due to the hamstring injury. He's been limited in practice each of the past two weeks, but with the Colts' next game not until Dec. 23 against the Ravens, Daniels could be closer to full health by that point.
