Position Listing
Jalston Fowler
News
Fowler signed a reserve/future contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday, The Seahawks Wire reports.

Fowler earned a spot on the Titans' 53-man roster to start the 2017 season, but saw his usage drop as the season wore on, leading to his release. The 27-year-old has been on Seattle's practice squad since mid-December and will continue in the team's offseason program.

Sheldon Richardson
News
Richardson had 44 tackles (27 solo), a sack, a forced fumble and an interception in 15 games with the Seahawks in 2017.

Richardson was traded from the Jets to the Seahawks prior to Week 1 and accrued a career-low sack total in the final year of his rookie contract. The 27-year-old will enter free agency in 2018 and is likely to be one of the most attractive options on the market at defensive tackle.

Chris Carson
News
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Carson (ankle/leg) won't practice this week and isn't in line to play Sunday against the Cardinals, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Since Carson was shut down and placed on injured reserve following Week 4 after suffering a lower-leg fracture and undergoing surgery to address a left ankle issue, the Seahawks haven't abandoned hope of the running back playing again this season. With Carson having recently hit a snag in the recovery progress that has continued to prevent him from practicing, however, the rookie won't have a shot at playing again until the postseason. Given Carson's lengthy time away from the field, even that seems dubious at this juncture, giving Mike Davis some level of security in his role as Seattle's lead back.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Garrison Smith
News
Smith (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Smith will miss his second consecutive game, but he's rarely summoned enough to pick up fantasy points. Nazair Jones will pick up all the reserve snaps at defensive tackle Sunday.

Quinton Jefferson
News
Jefferson sustained a broken hand Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Jefferson suffered the injury early into his first practice since being re-signed from the Rams practice squad Monday, and he's likely to miss at least a month. As a result, the team could be forced to make another move for defensive line depth, with starter Cliff Avril (neck) looking at a prolonged absence as well.

Amara Darboh
News
Darboh caught eight of thirteen targets for 71 yards in 16 games for the Seahawks in 2017.

Darboh caught only three passes in three preseason games and similarly struggled to make an offensive impact for Seattle in the regular season. Hopefully a full offseason with the Seahawks will lead to better production in the 23-year-old sophomore season.

C.J. Prosise
News
Prosise (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for about six weeks, but Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the running back could be activated from injured reserve at some point during the postseason, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Prosise was placed on IR on Tuesday after spraining his left ankle in the Seahawks' Week 10 win over the Cardinals. While the roster move will keep Prosise unavailable for at least eight weeks to knock him out for the rest of the regular season, Carroll said it could come down to a race between Prosise and fellow running back Chris Carson (ankle) to receive one of the Seahawks' "designated-for-return" tags. Like Prosise, Carson is trending toward being fully health by late December, and the return of either player might inject life into a Seattle running attack that has struggled this season and isn't expected to be particularly effective while both are sidelined.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
P.J. Dawson
News
The Seahawks promoted Dawson from their practice squad Wednesday.

Dawson's addition provides some much-needed depth at linebacker with K.J. Wright (concussion) and Bobby Wagner (hamstring) both uncertain to play Sunday against the Rams. Even if one or both players are sidelined, it's unlikely that Dawson would log substantial defensive snaps during the contest, as D.J. Alexander and Terence Garvin would be the more likely candidates to earn promotions into the starting lineup.

D.J. Alexander
News
Alexander has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Rams after suffering a concussion, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

With Alexander and linebacker K.J. Wright (concussion) out, Terence Garvin and Kache Palacio are in line to see increased snaps for the Seahawks defense.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
K.J. Wright
News
Wright had 108 tackles (71 solo) and an interception in 15 games with the Seahawks in 2017.

Wright turned in a sackless season for the first time in his career, but it was his fourth consecutive season with over 100 tackles. The 28-year-old is entering the final season of his current contract and could potentially be cut as he carries a manageable dead cap hit if released, but Seattle is likely to want Wright to return given his consistent performance alongside Bobby Wagner.

Delano Hill
News
Hill (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Hill is expected to be ready for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers. He'll likely be used mainly as a special teams contributor.

Tanner McEvoy
News
McEvoy (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

McEvoy will be held out for the first time of the campaign, a decision that was likely on the horizon after he played a season-low six offensive snaps in the Week 16 loss to the Cowboys. Amara Darboh and David Moore will dress as the Seahawks' reserve wideouts behind starters Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson and Tyler Lockett.

Josh Forrest
News
Forrest (knee) reached an injury settlement with the Rams on Saturday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Forrest is now free to sign elsewhere if he is healthy enough to play. The 25-year-old was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury last year as well, but it's unclear how severe the injury is this time around.

Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
Noble Nwachukwu
No Updates
Dewey McDonald
News
McDonald (knee) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

McDonald is believed to have torn his ACL last Sunday against the Titans, likely ending his season. The Seahawks claimed Justin March-Lillard off waivers in a corresponding move.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Kam Chancellor
News
Head coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle on Tuesday that Chancellor (neck) may not play again. "Cliff [Avril] and Kam [Chancellor] are going to have a hard time playing football again," Carroll said. "The jury is not out on that yet."

Chancellor didn't take another snap after injuring his neck Week 10. The strong safety opted to avoid surgery on the region with the hope rehab will get him back into playing shape. However, Carroll's comments sung an ominous tone with three years remaining on Chancellor's contract. Expect Chancellor and the Seahawks to explore every option at his disposal in the coming months.

Injury
Neck - Injured Reserve
Doug Baldwin
News
Baldwin hauled in four of five passes for 90 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 26-24 defeat to the Cardinals.

On the heels of two of his worst performances in terms of output this season -- a combined five receptions (on 10 targets) for 41 yards and one TD in Weeks 15 and 16 -- Baldwin bounced back with one of his best. That said, his sole reception of the first half accounted for nearly all of the Seahawks' offensive production (a 20-yard catch versus 24 total yards), putting it in a 20-7 hole. In the second half, Baldwin was on the receiving end of both scoring strikes from Russell Wilson, reaching the end zone from 18 and 29 yards. While Baldwin fell short of a third consecutive 1,000-yard season by nine yards, his eight touchdown grabs marked the second-most of his seven-year career. On a sour note, the team missed the playoffs for the first time since 2011. Nonetheless, the Baldwin-Wilson connection remains one of the most reliable in the entire NFL.

Terence Garvin
News
Garvin will not return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to a concussion, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Garvin will enter the league-mandated concussion protocol and must clear the five necessary stages before returning to game action. The Seahawks are still fighting for a potential playoff berth against the Cardinals on Sunday, but Garvin would have plenty of time to recuperate from the head injury if the teams fails to qualify.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Nick Vannett
News
Vannett had 12 receptions on 15 targets for 124 yards and a touchdown in 15 games for the Seahawks in 2017.

Vannett began and finished the season as Seattle's No. 3 tight end behind Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson, but ended the year with similar numbers to Willson, who had 15 receptions for 153 yards. The 24-year-old will head into his sophomore season after flashing his third-round potential in 2017.

Injury
Back - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jason Thompson
No Updates
Michael Bennett
News
Bennett said Sunday that he, "probably won't be [with Seattle] next year" following the Seahawks' 26-24 loss to the Cardinals in the season finale, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

After inking a three-year, $29.5-million contract extension with the Seahawks last December, Bennett more or less met expectations in the first season of the new deal, as he suited up for all 16 games in 2017 and compiled 40 stops (25 solo) and 8.5 sacks. The 32-year-old defensive end played through a torn plantar fascia in his foot and a swollen knee during the season, which may have prevented him from mounting even better numbers. Despite the fact he's still productive in the latter half of his career, Bennett's high salary number could make it difficult for the Seahawks to retain him with cap flexibility a priority for the team.

Cyril Grayson
News
Grayson and the Seahawks agreed to a reserve/future deal Tuesday.

Grayson spent his rookie season on the Seahawks' practice squad. He figured to have some work ahead of him when the team picked him up, as he had not played organized football since his senior year of high school in 2011. However, he was a seven-time All-American and four-time national champion as a member of the LSU track team, so the athletic ability is still there. It remains to be seen if he has done enough work to earn a role with the team in 2018.

Cliff Avril
News
Avril (neck) told Steve Wyche of NFL Network on Monday that he plans to continue his playing career following November disc surgery. "I believe so," Avril said, when asked if he thinks he'll play football again. "Right now it's all about recovery for me. I had surgery. It's a long process, it's a long journey. When I get to the end of that, then I'll figure out what's next."

Avril required the season-ending procedure after he took a heel to the chin from the Colts' Jacoby Brissett in Week 4, resulting in the defensive end briefly losing feeling in his arms. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll acknowledged that Avril's quality of life could be affected if he continues playing through the neck injury, but it appears the veteran is willing to accept the risk. Avril, who tallied a career-best 11.5 sacks in 2016, is due a base salary of $7 million in 2018, but the Seahawks may want to ensure he's fully healthy before keeping him on the roster heading into next season.

Injury
Neck - Injured Reserve
Tedric Thompson
News
The Seahawks selected Thompson in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 111th overall.

Thompson is less athletic than most players the Seahawks target, but he earned a high grade from them anyway thanks to his production. Thompson played safety for a Colorado pass defense that dominated in 2016, and Thompson picked off seven passes in the process. He and Delano Hill give Seattle options at safety.

Richard Sherman
News
Sherman underwent surgery Wednesday in Green Bay to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Sherman suffered the injury in the Seahawks' Week 10 win over the Cardinals, spelling an end to the season for the cornerback, who accrued 35 tackles, two interceptions and seven pass breakups in nine contests. Though he could be limited for the start of training camp next summer, it's expected Sherman will be near full strength by the time the 2018 campaign opens. However, since he's set to turn 30 years old in March and coming off a major procedure, he could struggle to return to elite form.

Injury
Achilles - Injured Reserve
Isaiah Battle
News
Battle was waived by the Seahawks on Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The prospect of an offensive lineman being the odd man left out became rather obvious once Seattle made the trade for veteran offensive lineman Duane Brown. Unfortunately for Battle, he was victim of the deal.

Christian French
Injury
Ethan Pocic
News
Pocic (knee) will not return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Pocic exited with the injury earlier in the game and was originally designated questionable to return. Rookie Jordan Roos should continue in his stead at right guard for Seattle.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
J.D. McKissic
News
McKissic rushed six times for 20 yards and caught three of four pass attempts for 38 yards in Sunday's 42-7 loss to the Rams.

McKissic saw just two targets and no carries in the first half, but the Seahawks turned to their pass-catching specialist to try closing the 34-0 gap in the second. The nine touches were the most the 24-year-old has seen since Week 11, and it was his highest yardage output since his season debut in Week 4. With a repeat of the same game situation highly unlikely in Week 16 at Dallas, McKissic remains a low-end fantasy option.

Oday Aboushi
News
Aboushi (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll acknowledged several days earlier that Aboushi's season was over, but the team waited until after Sunday's loss to the Jaguars to make it official. With Aboushi shut down, Ethan Pocic and Luke Joeckel are expected to serve as Seattle's starting guards for its final three regular-season contests and for the duration of the team's potential postseason run.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Frank Clark
News
Clark had 32 tackles (19 solo), nine sacks and two forced fumbles in 16 games for the Seahawks in 2017.

Clark logged 12 starts and saw an increased role once Cliff Avril (neck) was lost for the season in Week 4. The 24-year-old should see a similar role for the Seahawks in 2018 as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.

Duane Brown
News
Brown (ankle) was a full participant at Friday's practice and enters the weekend without an injury designation, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports.

Brown has dealt with a nagging ankle injury since early November, but the issue hasn't been serious enough to keep him sidelined.

Neiko Thorpe
News
Thorpe (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Colts.

Thorpe has been dealing with an ankle injury since being carted off the field in Week 2. His absence will affect the Seahawks' depth at cornerback, with Justin Coleman in line to see additional snaps behind starter Richard Sherman.

Trevone Boykin
News
Boykin signed a reserve/future deal with the Seahwawks on Tuesday.

Boykin backed up Russell Wilson for five games in 2016, which is his only NFL experience to date. He spent the 2017 season on their practice squad. He will now look to earn a spot on the 53-man roster providing depth at quarterback in 2018.

Luke Joeckel
News
Joeckel (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Joeckel only managed one limited practice this week while contending with the foot injury, but with the Seahawks' playoff hopes on the line in Week 17, he'll be able to tough it out. He should fill his normal starting role at left guard.

David Moore
News
The Seahawks signed Moore to a contract Wednesday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Seattle drafted Moore in the seventh round of this year's draft, but he didn't survive final roster cuts ahead of the season opener. The six-foot-two wideout -- who was clocked running a 4.43 40-yard dash -- adds a nice blend of size and speed to the Seahawks' receiving corps, but he could struggle to see many snaps on offense.

Shaquill Griffin
News
Griffin posted 59 tackles, one sack, 15 pass breakups and one interception through 15 games in his 2017 rookie season.

Griffin was the Seahawks top corner after Richard Sherman (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve. He answered the call exceptionally, helping the Seahawks prove to be an elite pass defense once again. The UCF product will likely play as the No. 2 corner next season opposite of Sherman.

Alex Carter
News
Carter signed a contract with the Lions on Sunday, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Twenty months after being drafted in the third round by the Lions, Carter has finally been promoted from the practice squad and will serve in a depth role for Monday's game against the Cowboys with starter Darius Slay (hamstring) likely sidelined.

Tyler Lockett
News
Lockett caught two of three targets for eight yards during Sunday's 42-7 loss to the Rams.

Well, it was fun while it lasted. Lockett started the season on an 11-game scoreless streak but had scored in back-to-back games heading into Sunday. The diminutive dynamo has taken a back seat in Seattle's offense this season with just two touchdowns and two games of at least 75 yards. He might get luckier this week as Seattle takes on a Dallas defense ranked 26th in the league in opponent receiving touchdowns with 1.86 per game.

Eddie Lacy
News
Lacy is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, the Seattle Times reports.

With Lacy a healthy scratch Sunday, the Seahawks will roll with a Week 16 backfield comprised of Mike Davis, J.D. McKissic and Thomas Rawls.

Mike Davis
News
Davis was limited to 25 yards on 15 carries and caught four of five targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 21-12 victory over the Cowboys.

The Dallas defense limited Seattle to just 136 total yards on the day, but untimely turnovers from the opposition helped key the Seahawks' road victory. Though Davis struggled to find much running room Sunday, it was at least encouraging to see him dominate the backfield work, as Thomas Rawls (five touches) and J.D. McKissic (none) were mostly non-factors. The Seahawks' much-maligned offensive line may continue to inhibit Davis' efficiency in the regular-season finale against an Arizona defense that has yielded just 3.5 yards per carry for the season, a mark that ranks third in the NFL.

Blair Walsh
News
Walsh was 21 of 29 on field-goal attempts and 37 for 38 on extra-points attempts for the Seahawks in 2017.

Walsh's longest field goal of the season was 49 yards, and he finished the season on a sour note with a missed 48-yard field goal in the final minute of the Week 17 loss to the Cardinals. The Seahawks have already signed former-Jaguar Jason Myers to a reserve\future contract as Walsh is set to hit free agency, with his tenure in Seattle likely over.

Willie Beavers
News
Beavers was waived by the Patriots on Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Beavers has struggled to make a strong impression with New England. There's a chance he'll land elsewhere, though.

Tyrone Swoopes
News
Swoopes was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Saturday.

Swoopes has been on the team's practice squad since being waived at roster cutdowns in September. The 23-year-old could see some offensive snaps Sunday since tight ends Luke Willson (ankle) and Nick Vannett (back) are both listed as questionable.

Russell Wilson
News
Wilson led the NFL and tied a team record with 34 touchdown passes in 2017, but it was partly a result of an inept running game as he posted career lows in completion percentage (61.3) and yards per attempt (7.2).

Wilson threw 15 touchdown passes inside the 10-yard line (2nd) as the Seahawks passed on 64.3 percent of their inside-the-10 plays (2nd), largely because they couldn't run the ball. Seattle running backs rushed 17 times inside the 10 for -11 yards, the fewest in the NFL since 1991, and failed to score one touchdown. The Seahawks' two rushing TDs inside the 10 came from Wilson, who accounted for all but one of the team's offensive touchdowns. The running game was so bad, Wilson became the fifth quarterback since 1970 to lead his team in rushing with 586 yards. The running game was partly a victim of another terrible Seattle offensive line, as was Wilson, who was sacked 43 times, becoming the third quarterback ever with five consecutive seasons of 40-plus sacks. Unless the Seahawks upgrade the offensive line substantially in the offseason, expect Wilson to match Neil Lomax's dubious record of six straight seasons (1983-88).

Matt Tobin
News
The Eagles traded Tobin to the Seahawks on Monday.

The Seahawks surrendered a 2018 fifth-round pick and took back a 2018 seventh-round pick in addition to Tobin in the deal. Tobin started at right tackle and played 22 snaps for the Eagles in Thursday's preseason game against the Bills, but could be ticketed for a backup role with the Seahawks when the regular season begins.

Tre Madden
News
Madden (calf) returned to practice Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Madden has resided on injured reserve since early November and isn't eligible to play Sunday against the Cardinals, but it appears the Seahawks will make him one of two players designated to return from IR this season. If Seattle qualifies for the playoffs and the fullback checks out fine during his subsequent practices, Madden could suit up for a potential wild-card round matchup and any postseason contests that might follow.

Injury
Calf - Injured Reserve
Branden Jackson
News
Jackson was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Saturday.

Jackson's promotion is no surprise as the Seahawks defensive line was looking extraordinarily thin with Cliff Avril (neck) and Quinton Jefferson (hand) both looking at prolonged absences. The 24-year-old takes the roster spot of linebacker Justin March-Lillard, and will likely play a similar role to Marcus Smith as a rotational defensive end.

Austin Davis
News
Davis signed a contract Monday with the Seahawks, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports.

In a corresponding move, the team released No. 3 quarterback Jake Heaps to open a spot on the camp roster for Davis. Although the Seahawks recently brought in Colin Kaepernick for a meeting, it appears that Davis will be the veteran quarterback that competes with Trevone Boykin in camp for the backup gig behind starter Russell Wilson. Davis has had stints with the Rams, Browns and Broncos over the past three seasons, but has failed to maintain a roster spot with any of those clubs on a long-term basis.

Wilhoite had 30 tackles (21 solo) and an interception in 14 games with the Seahawks in 2017.

Wilhoite started nine games for the Seahawks and posted the lowest tackle total since his rookie season, in which he played only five games. The 31-year-old will enter the 2018 season as a an unrestricted free agent.

Germain Ifedi
News
Ifedi (finger) was a full participant at Tuesday's walk-through, John Doyle of the Seahawks' official website reports.

The Seahawks held Ifedi out of Monday's walk-through, but it appears they were just being cautious. He appears on track to play Thursday against the Cardinals assuming he avoids a setback.

Malcolm Johnson
News
The 49ers signed Johnson to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.

Johnson, who has appeared in 19 NFL games during his three-year career, didn't log a single snap in 2017 after being waived by the Seahawks prior to training camp. With Kyle Juszczyk locked in as the 49ers' fullback, Johnson looks like he'll be little more than a camp body for San Francisco if he sticks on the roster through this summer.

Injury
Jordan Simone
News
Simone has been diagnosed with a torn left ACL and will miss the 2017 season, Braulio Perez of 12up.com reports.

Simone suffered the injury while attempting to make a tackle on special teams during the Seahawks' preseason opener Sunday against the Chargers. This marks the second torn ACL of his career, as the Arizona State product suffered the same injury during his senior season of college in 2015.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Justin Britt
News
Britt (ankle) was able to log a full practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official website reports.

Britt was questionable prior to the Seahawks' Week 8 victory over the Texans and ultimately played. His presence at practice indicates he did not suffer any setbacks and that he appears on track to play in Week 9.

Luke Willson
News
Willson (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Willson suffered a minor ankle sprain in Thursday's practice that prevented him from taking part in Friday's session. While Willson could be a tad hindered by the injury in Week 17, he's normally relegated to blocking duties anyway. He hasn't caught more than three passes or surpassed 30 receiving yards in a game since Week 3.

Dion Jordan
News
Jordan had 18 tackles (10 solo), four sacks and a forced fumble in five games for the Seahawks in 2017.

Jordan missed the first nine weeks of the season with a knee injury and missed three additional games with a neck injury. The 27-year-old played well in limited snaps for the Seahawks, and recorded a sack in four of his five games played. Jordan enters 2018 as a restricted free agent and Seattle is likely willing to bring him back given his production, despite the injuries.

Malik McDowell
News
McDowell (head) allegedly was arrested for disorderly conduct early Sunday morning in Atlanta, Ga., Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

A 2017 second-round pick of the Seahawks, McDowell's rookie campaign ended abruptly when he sustained facial and head injuries in a July ATV accident. On the NFI list as of Week 1, he was officially ruled out for the year by head coach Pete Carroll on Nov. 27. McDowell now has a legal concern hanging over his head, which must be litigated before any sort of punishment is levied by the team or NFL.

Injury
Head - Out for the start of training camp
Justin Coleman
News
Coleman marked 43 tackles, 1.5 sacks, nine pass breakups and returned two interceptions for touchdowns in the 2017 season.

Coleman played a majority of his defensive snaps because Byron Maxwell sat out six games due to a foot injury, and when Maxwell returned, Richard Sherman's season ended due to an Achilles injury. Regardless, he was up to the task and posted the best stats of his career by a long shot. If the rest of the corners are healthy in 2018, though, Coleman will have to fight to play the same role again.

Jimmy Graham
News
Graham tied for second in the NFL with a position-leading 10 touchdown receptions in 2017, but he posted career lows in yards per reception (9.1) and yards per target (5.4).

Absent a short-yardage running game, the Seahawks fed Graham at the goal line. He led the league in targets inside the 10-yard line (16) and inside the 5 (14). But the Seahawks didn't get much out of him between the 20s. His non-RZ targets accounted for just 75 percent of his total, the lowest among tight ends with at least 40 targets. That led to his fewest receptions (57) and yards (520) since his rookie season when he had only 44 targets. Graham didn't help himself, either, as he led tight ends in drops with seven (one shy of league-leading Marqise Lee) and caught a career-low 59.3 percent of his targets. Graham is an unrestricted free agent and there is seemingly little chance he'll re-sign with Seattle. For whatever reason, the production of Jimmy Graham in the Seahawks offense never lived up to the potential of the Jimmy Graham in the Seahawks offense.

Joey Hunt
News
Hunt was promoted from the practice squad to the Seahawks' active roster Tuesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Hunt spent nine games on the Seahawks' active roster last season, including one start. Expect the 2016 sixth-round selection to back up Justin Britt for the remainder of the season.

Thomas Rawls
News
Rawls is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, the Seattle Times reports.

Rawls was inactive last weekend against the Rams, but he's back in uniform in Week 16 to serve as the Seahawks' No. 3 running back behind Mike Davis and J.D. McKissic. Meanwhile, the team made veteran Eddie Lacy a healthy scratch Sunday.

Kache Palacio
News
Palacio was waived by the Seahawks on Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Palacio was waived by the Seahawks after being promoted to the active roster Saturday. A Seahawks' practice squad member for the majority of the past two seasons, its seems likely Palacio could end back up there as long as he passes through waivers.

Tyler Ott

Paul Richardson
News
Richardson snagged two of seven targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 42-7 loss to the Rams.

Richardson has thrived on the long ball this season, and it should be no surprise that he's struggled in two of his last three games when he's been unable to get open deep. Richardson snagged 10 passes of at least 20 yards through the first nine games of the year, but he has just three such plays in the last five weeks. He gets a tough draw down the stretch. The Seahawks take on a Dallas defense ranked third in the league at suppressing opponent yardage per reception before finishing up with an Arizona team that held him to one, albeit 43-yard, catch in Week 10.

Jeremy Lane
News
Lane was arrested Sunday near Seattle on a DUI charge, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

There aren't any further details surrounding Lane's arrest, other than he was released from jail four hours after being booked. The 27-year-old has spent all six of his NFL seasons with the Seahawks, but was nearly dealt to the Texans in October before a failed physical kept him in Seattle. Lane's diminished effectiveness cost him playing time late in the season, and the offseason DUI arrest certainly won't help him standing in the organization.

Nazair Jones
News
Jones (ankle) was placed on injured reserve by the Seahawks on Saturday.

Jones had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, so this move simply ensures Jones' absence for the playoffs, should Seattle earn a wild-card berth. The 23-year-old finishes his rookie season with 19 total tackles, two sacks and an interception.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Byron Maxwell
News
Maxwell recorded 46 tackles, seven pass breakups, one interception and two forced fumbles in nine 2017 games.

Maxwell played two games for the Dolphins and seven games for the Seahawks, posting the most tackles per game of his career. If Richard Sherman (Achilles) returns to full speed by the start of the 2018 season, Maxwell and Justin Coleman will battle for the No. 3 corner role.

George Fant
News
Fant (knee) was placed on IR Saturday.

The designation means that Fant officially will miss the 2017 regular season. Fant knew he was going to be sidelined for the season's entirety following the ACL tear two weeks ago, but by placing him on IR, the Seahawks are able to free up a roster spot.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Tyrus Thompson
News
Thompson (undisclosed) reverted to injured reserve after being waived/injured, per the official NFL transaction log.

As expected, Thompson cleared waivers and landed on the team's IR. He will now remain there for the 2017 season unless he and the Seahawks can reach an injury settlement.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Bobby Wagner
News
Wagner had 133 tackles (97 solo), two interceptions and 1.5 sacks in 16 games for the Seahawks in 2017.

Wagner also added the first safety of his career, and the 97 solo tackles mark a new career high for the six-year veteran. The 27-year-old battled injuries throughout the second half of the season but did not miss a game and should continue to be the anchor in the middle of the Seahawks defense in 2018.

DeShawn Shead
News
Shead recorded two solo tackles in the Seahawks' Week 17 loss to the Cardinals.

Shead also played against the Cowboys in Week 16, but didn't make any statistical contributions. The 28-year-old remained on the Physically Unable to Perform list through Week 15 as he recovered from a torn ACL in a January 2017 playoff game, and enters 2018 as a free agent.

Rees Odhiambo
News
Odhiambo will require surgery to repair multiple broken and dislocated fingers on both hands and was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 25-year-old probably could have continued to play through the injuries if needed, but the recent acquisition of veteran tackle Duane Brown lessens the need for his services. Odhiambo started the Seahawks' first seven games of the season at left tackle and often struggled to protect quarterback Russell Wilson's blind side.

Injury
Hand - Injured Reserve
Bradley McDougald
News
McDougald had 75 tackles (51 solo) in 16 games with the Seahawks in 2017.

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.

Jarran Reed
News
Reed had 45 tackles, 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble through 15 games in 2017.

Reed was given an increased role in his second season, seeing an extra 10 defensive snaps per game. His pace of three tackles per game is decent for a defensive tackle, but adding a better pass rush would vault him into a high-level IDP role.

DeAndre Elliott
News
Elliott (leg) was placed on IR Saturday.

In his absence, Neiko Thorpe is expected to pick up the slack. Elliott will miss all of the 2017 regular season following his placement onto IR.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Marcus Smith
News
Smith (concussion) was a full participant in practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Smith sat out last Thursday's win over the Cardinals due to a concussion he suffered a week prior. However, the defensive end was able to return to the field this week given the extended time off. Look for him to return to his rotational role on the defensive line this Monday night against the Falcons.

Earl Thomas
News
Thomas totaled 88 tackles (56 solo), two interceptions and a forced fumble in 14 games for the Seahawks this season.

Thomas nursed hamstring, heel and knee injuries in the second half of the season, but still put together a productive 2017. The 28-year-old is entering the final year of his current contract and should remain a pivotal member of the Seahawks secondary in 2018.

Mike Tyson
News
Tyson was promoted to the Seahawks' 53-man roster Saturday.

Tyson was waived by the Seahawks in early September and has since been a member of the team's practice squad. The 24-year-old takes the roster spot of safety Kam Chancellor (neck), who was finally placed on injured reserve. Tyson should serve as a depth option in the Seahawks' injury-depleted secondary.
