Coyle (leg) recorded four tackles (two solo) in Thursday's preseason win over the Chargers.
Coyle had been dealing with a minor leg injury this week, but his presence in Thursday's contest bodes well for the 26-year-old's chances of making the 53-man roster as a backup linebacker and special teams contributor.
Coyle (leg) did not practice Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Coyle played in a special teams role for the Seahawks for the past three seasons, and now he's vying to hold onto his backup role to NaVorro Bowman. The timeline for his return is vague, but more information should precede Thursday's final preseason game with the Chargers.
Coyle (ribs) was listed as a full participant in Thursday's joint practice with the Broncos, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Coyle (ribs) returned to practice in a limited fashion Tuesday, Joe Fann of the team's official site reports.
Coyle practiced in non-contact drills Tuesday but has still experienced some pain with his ribs. While he still has yet to make a full recovery, it's encouraging to see him out on the field practicing again. Coyle projects to function as a backup linebacker this season.

Coyle will have a tough time fighting for snaps with NaVorro Bowman, who recorded over 130 tackles for four straight seasons before sitting out 2016 due to an Achilles injury. There's no indication of the severity of this injury, but if he's healthy by Week 1, he'll rotate in as a backup and special teams man.
