Hollister (quadriceps) was a full participant at Thursday's walk-through, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
The Seahawks have held back-to-back walk-throughs to kick off Week 14 preparations, but Hollister's elevation from LP on Wednesday to uncapped one day later paves the way for the tight end to suit up Sunday versus the Rams in L.A. He's been the most-utilized TE for Russell Wilson for some time now, notching 25 catches (on 36 targets) for 203 yards and three touchdowns over Seattle's last six games.
Hollister was a limited participant at Wednesday's walk-through session due to a quadriceps injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Hollister has become a regular option for Russell Wilson over the last six games, earning between 51 and 81 percent of the offensive snaps on five occasions en route to turning in a 25-203-3 receiving line on 36 targets. The increased usage seems to be taking its toll, though, as Hollister dealt with a toe injury last week and now is tending to a quad issue. As a result, his status should be monitored closely as the weekend approaches.
Hollister caught six of eight targets for 44 yards in Monday's 37-30 win over the Vikings.
Hollister logged a season-high 81-percent snap share, with Luke Willson's (hamstring) inactive status helping his case. The third-year pro finished tied with DK Metcalf for the team lead in receptions. Over the last four weeks, Hollister has averaged five catches for 41.3 yards while totaling three touchdowns.
Hollister (toe) does not carry an injury designation into Monday's game against the Vikings, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
While Luke Willson is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury, it's Hollister who appears fully healthy heading into a pivotal prime-time affair against the Vikings. The 26-year-old, along with the rest of the Seahawks' receiving options, was kept in check in Week 12, but prior to that Hollister recorded 17 receptions, 137 receiving yards and three touchdowns over a four-week stretch during the middle of the season.
Hollister (toe) was listed as a limited participant in Friday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Hollister is apparently still experiencing some discomfort in his toe dating back to the Seahawks' Week 12 win over the Eagles, but the tight end would erase most of the concern about his health by practicing fully Saturday. Even if Hollister merely repeats the limited activity, he would still have a decent shot at suiting up Monday night against the Vikings.
Hollister is listed as limited on Thursday's practice report due to a toe injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
After getting rolled up on this past Sunday in Philly, Hollister was believed to be dealing with discomfort in his foot. The Seahawks have honed in on the nature of his issue with this report, but at least he would have participated in some capacity if the team had held practice. Hollister will aim to increase his reps Friday and Saturday in advance of Monday's contest versus the Vikings.
Hollister has discomfort in his foot after getting rolled up on during Sunday's 17-9 win at Philadelphia, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
On Sunday, Hollister played his smallest share of the offensive snaps (69 percent) since his workload increased significantly in Week 9, in part due to leaving the game after the play in question. He also didn't make much of an impact as a receiver, hauling in two of four targets for 22 yards. The Seahawks won't release an injury report until Thursday with a Monday night matchup against the Vikings on tap, but the extra day of rest may improve Hollister's odds of maintaining his current role.
Hollister caught two of four targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Vikings.
Hollister showcased his YAC abilities by taking a short pass for 21 yards on the second drive, accounting for a heavy chunk of his fantasy value. It could've been a more intriguing fantasy line, but Russell Wilson airmailed a wide-open Hollister in the end zone. Hollister did leave for a bit with an injury, so he fell short of the full workload that was expected with Luke Willson (hamstring) out. In fact, it was Hollister's lightest outing since Week 8, as he logged 45 of 76 offensive snaps (69 percent) Sunday.
Hollister and Tyrone Swoopes are the only healthy tight ends on the Seattle roster for Sunday's game in Philadelphia, Brent Stecker of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Swoopes was promoted Friday from the practice squad after Ed Dickson (knee) was sent back to injured reserve. A few hours later, the Seahawks listed Luke Willson (hamstring) as doubtful on their final injury report, setting up a situation where Hollister's snap share could stretch even higher than the 80 and 78 percent he saw in his past two games. He took full advantage of those opportunities to the tune of 12 catches for 99 yards and three touchdowns on 16 targets, picking up where Will Dissly (Achilles) had left off in earning Russell Wilson's favor near the goal line. The Eagles have given up the seventh-fewest receiving yards per game to tight ends (41.9) and generally have played well on defense in recent weeks, but there's a lot to be said for simply take a large number of snaps in an offense with Wilson at the helm.
Hollister caught eight of 10 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 27-24 overtime win versus the 49ers.
The former Patriot tied rookie DK Metcalf for the team high in targets, and the tight end's night was highlighted by a one-handed snag in the end zone to put the Seahawks up 14-10 in the third quarter. Hollister was also the intended target of Russell Wilson's overtime INT in the red zone. Luke Willson left the game early with a hamstring injury, but it's safe to say Hollister looks like the team's No. 1 option at the position going forward regardless of Willson's health. Fantasy owners should think about stashing Hollister during Seattle's upcoming bye.
Hollister caught four of six targets for 37 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 40-34 win over the Buccaneers.
Hollister hauled in a one-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson late in the second quarter, and he nearly scored again in the third quarter but was stopped at Tampa Bay's one-yard line. He was saving his second score for a heroic moment, however, as Hollister snagged a 10-yard pass from Russell Wilson in overtime for a touchdown and the win, lifting the Seahawks to 7-2 on the season. This success may be unsustainable in the long term, but Hollister does have fantasy value, albeit in a touchdown-dependent capacity. Hollister may end up passing Luke Willson in the tight-end pecking order in Week 10's matchup against the 49ers, but both players could see a decrease in potential once Josh Gordon is in the fold.
The Seahawks promoted Hollister from the practice squad Friday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
This move was among a number of transactions to address the placement of guard Ethan Pocic (back) on injured reserve. If Hollister is active Sunday at Cleveland, he may have difficulty getting on the field behind Will Dissly and Luke Willson. Assuming he does, though, Hollister's main focus may be blocking due to injuries along the offensive front.
Hollister signed with Seattle's practice squad on Sunday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
It was surprising that Hollister was cut from the 53-man roster considering Ed Dickson's knee injury isn't resolved yet. However, he was low on production during two years in the league, and the Seahawks have blocking tight end Will Dissly ready to rock. If Dickson's knee issues continue, Hollister likely will be brought up.
Hollister was waived by Seattle on Saturday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Hollister appeared in 23 games for the Patriots the past two seasons, playing primarily on special teams, before joining the Seahawks this past offseason. The third-year tight end will be a free agent if he clears waivers.
Hollister caught three of a team-high five targets for 17 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Chargers.
While the actual production was low -- his longest reception was eight yards -- it's a promising sign that Hollister is getting targets in a crowded tight end room. He's still a bubble candidate for the roster, but Ed Dickson's knee injury may open up a spot to begin the season.
Hollister (groin) is active for Sunday's preseason game in Minnesota, Gregg Bell of The News Tribune reports.
Hollister is buried deep down the tight end depth chart, so he'll need to impress over the remainder of preseason. Getting back on the field is the first step in that regard.
Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Hollister has a "minor" groin injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Hollister is competing for a depth role in Seattle's tight end room and will look to return to full health as soon as possible. The second-year pro boasts natural pass-catching ability, and he could earn a role on passing downs if he impresses in the preseason.
Hollister is making a good impression on offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports. "Terrific acquisition, he has had a great camp," Schottenheimer said. "The speed element is awesome, really good route runner. A lot like Tyler [Lockett] in terms of the instincts, just the ability to get open."
The Lockett comparison is a bit much, but Schottenheimer at least is making his point that Hollister brings a different element to the Seattle tight end room, as none of the other healthy players is a natural pass catcher. The team does hope to have Will Dissly (knee) back for Week 1, and blocking may be more of a priority than receiving ability in a run-heavy offense. Hollister presumably is competing for a part-time role on passing downs, after coming over from New England in April in a trade for a conditional seventh-round pick. He'll need to battle for a spot on the 53-man roster.
The Seahawks have acquired Hollister from the Patriots in exchange for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2020, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.
Presumably past the hamstring injury that he dealt with during the postseason, Hollister, who turns 26 in November, gives the Seahawks some added tight end depth with Will Dissly bouncing back from a knee injury. The 6-foot-4, 245-pounder has notched just eight catches for 94 yards in 23 NFL games to date, but Hollister does offer a degree of pass-catching upside if he can stay on the field. From New England's perspective, the trade is somewhat surprising, considering the team did not select a tight end (which was viewed as a clear need) in the recent NFL Draft. With that in mind, it's possible the Patriots have another move brewing to address the position in the coming days.
The Patriots placed Hollister (hamstring) on injured reserve Tuesday.
Hollister won't suit up for any of New England's playoff games, as his season officially comes to an end. The second-year tight end caught four catches for 52 yards, essentially matching his production from his rookie year.
