Amadi is expected to start at nickel corner for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
The Seahawks waived Jamar Taylor on Wednesday, opening the door for Amadi -- a rookie fourth-rounder -- to play on defense for the first time since Week 2. Taylor never exceeded a 50-percent snap share, so Amadi likely will fill a similar role.
Amadi (shoulder) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Amadi suffered a shoulder injury in Week 1's win over the Bengals, and it looks as if he will be able to suit up Sunday against the Steelers, barring a setback. He should offer depth at the safety position and log snaps on special teams.
Amadi suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's win over the Bengals, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Per Crabtree, the injury happened on a collusion with Bradley McDougald, and it's unclear as to it's severity. The Seahawks don't resume practice until Wednesday, so it's likely there won't be a more clear picture for a few days. Amadi had racked up two solo tackles before exiting Sunday's contest.
The Seahawks selected Amadi in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 132nd overall.
Amadi was a leader on the Oregon defense who's known to be physical in press coverage, but he had struggles in coverage and followed it up with a less-than-stellar performance at the combine, where he recorded a 4.51 40 and 115-inch broad jump. In Seattle, he'll likely be used closer to the line of scrimmage and consequently could push for IDP relevance if he can carve out a regular role sometime down the road.
