Position Listing
Sheldon Richardson
News
Richardson hauled in the first interception of his career in Week 5's victory over the Rams.

Richardson saw a relatively limited workload in the contest, playing just 45 snaps (61.0 percent). However, he took advantage of his time on the field by picking off a short pass intended for Todd Gurley shortly before the fourth quarter.

Chris Carson
News
Carson (lower leg) had successful ankle surgery Tuesday, likely to repair damaged ligaments, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Carson also suffered a fracture just below his knee, but the damage associated with his high-ankle sprain is the more serious concern. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll hinted that Carson probably won't be a candidate to return from injured reserve, which leaves Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls to compete for early down work in the Seattle backfield. C.J. Prosise might eventually get a shot at picking up more snaps in obvious running situations if his teammates struggle, though his injury history seemingly makes the Seahawks hesitant to rely on him for anything more than passing-down snaps. Carson's injury may be similar to the one that ended Lacy's season after Week 5 last year and limited the former Packers back throughout Seattle's offseason program. Carson, a 2017 seventh-round pick, is still an interesting stash in deeper dynasty formats, but he can otherwise be dropped without hesitation.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Garrison Smith
News
Smith (oblique) is expected to play in Friday's preseason game against the Chiefs, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Smith, who ended the 2016 season on injured reserve due to an oblique injury, will look to make an impression as a reserve defensive lineman.

Quinton Jefferson
News
Jefferson (hand) was a full participant at the Seahawks' practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Jefferson was diagnosed with a broken hand less than two weeks ago and was originally expected to miss a month. The 24-year-old apparently felt as though he would be fine once the swelling went down, and given Thursday's development, he looks to have been right. It remains to be seen if Jefferson will be active against the Giants on Sunday, but it appears he'll beat the original recovery timetable.

Amara Darboh
News
Darboh nabbed his lone target for a 16-yard gain in Sunday's 12-9 win over the 49ers.

Darboh's lone catch came late in the first quarter and helped set up Seattle's second field goal of the contest. Overall, Darboh was on the field for 14 of 82 offensive snaps. After trading away Jermaine Kearse, Seattle opened up space behind Tyler Lockett and Doug Baldwin. The battle between Paul Richardson, Tanner McEvoy and Darboh -- who trailed the group in snaps on Sunday -- will be worth watching.

Justin Senior
News
Senior (knee) cleared waivers and reverted to Seattle's injured reserve, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

If he gets healthy, Senior could be eligible for an injury settlement -- thus making him available for other teams. He could also be one of two IR players Seattle elects to activate, though that seems less likely. His inability to keep his knees healthy makes him unappealing to most franchises.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
C.J. Prosise
News
Prosise (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, despite logging full practices Thursday and Friday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Coming out of a bye week, Prosise suffered a minor setback and was limited at Wednesday's practice. He seems to be on track to play for the first time since Week 3, but his inclusion on the final injury report suggests it isn't quite a lock. J.D. McKissic has done a nice job filling in as the passing-down back, creating some questions about the extent of Prosise's role upon returning.

Injury
Ankle - Full Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 7 at N.Y. Giants
D.J. Alexander
News
Alexander (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Alexander has played just one defensive snap this season compared to 42 on special teams, so fantasy owners shouldn't be losing sleep over Alexander's absence. Expect Michael Wilhoite to continue serving as the main relief linebacker.

K.J. Wright
News
Wright recorded a team-high eight total tackles and a pass deflection in Sunday's 12-9 win over the 49ers.

Despite dealing with an ankle injury and being limited in practice last week, Wright still managed to show out in Sunday's win over San Fransisco. Wright has now posted 17 tackles (12 solo) through two games this season and should be a consistent contributor in that area so long as he remains healthy.

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 had two catches for 43 yards and a touchdown in Friday's exhibition game against the Chiefs.

McEvoy made an excellent catch on the 28-yard touchdown pass. He still faces an uphill battle to the make the team, though. Kasan Williams probably already won the last WR job, and even though rookie Amara Darboh has not caught a pass in preseason, the team likely won't cut its third-round pick. Even if McEvoy makes the team, his opportunities will be limited. But it would be fun to see what the 6-6 receiver with excellent hands could do with a steady role.

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
Knee - Out for Week 7 at N.Y. Giants
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
Chancellor was dealing with an ankle injury and was a full participant at the Seahawks' practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Chancellor was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, but his full participation Thursday should quell the injury concerns. The Seahawks were likely just being caution with their veteran safety early in the week.

Doug Baldwin
News
Baldwin caught four of eight targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Rams.

Baldwin finished tied for the team lead in targets, but he struggled to generate much extra yardage and finished with a long gain of just 15 yards while failing to connect with Russell Wilson on several occasions. The 29-year-old had been bothered by a groin injury of late, making it fair to speculate that he could've been hampered in this one. Luckily, Baldwin will enjoy a bye in Week 6 before taking on the Giants the following Sunday.

Terence Garvin
News
Garvin (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Titans.

After missing Week 2, Garvin will return to his starting role at outside linebacker. The 26-year-old recorded three tackles (one solo) and a sack in Week 1, and he'll have to battle against a strong offensive line in Tennessee.

Nick Vannett
News
Vannett figures to serve as the No. 3 tight end this season, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Selected at No. 94 overall in last year's draft, Vannett logged only 84 offensive snaps in nine games as a rookie while stuck behind Jimmy Graham, Luke Willson and Brandon Williams on the depth chart. Graham and Willson are still around and seemingly locked in as the top two options, but with both players in contract seasons, Vannett should at least have an opportunity to push for a significant role in 2018. Vannett is unlikely to ever serve as the team's top receiving threat at tight end, as he caught only 55 passes in 37 games at Ohio State and ran a 4.85 40-yard dash at the 2016 Combine.

Tyvis Powell
News
The Colts released Powell (undisclosed) on Tuesday on an injury settlement.

Powell was previously placed on injured reserve shortly after the Colts claimed him off waivers in June.

Michael Bennett
News
Bennett (heel) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Friday's practice was only a walk-through, but Bennett was also a full participant Thursday so the questionable designation is a bit surprising. The 31-year-old is likely expected to play given his full practice participation, but Quinton Jefferson and Marcus Smith (ankle) would likely see an increased workload if he is forced to sit.

Injury
Heel - Full Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 7 at N.Y. Giants
Cliff Avril
News
The Seahawks placed Avril (neck) on injured reserve Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

This move has been in the works for awhile and at this point, Avril is apparently seriously considering retirement. The 31-year-old could be designated to return from IR after eight weeks, but that seems unlikely based on how things are trending at this time.

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 was dealing with an Achilles injury but was a full participant at the Seahawks' practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Sherman was a limited participant Wednesday but the Seahawks were likely just being cautious with their star cornerback. The 30-year-old dealt with an Achilles injury earlier this season in addition to groin and hamstring injuries, but has still played in all five games thus far.

Isaiah Battle
News
Battle (hamstring) is healthy and practicing with the Chiefs again, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.

The quick recovery is exactly what Battle needed in order to have a chance at the 53-man roster. Battle will be a depth option for the Chiefs' offensive front if he does make the roster.

Christian French
Injury
Ethan Pocic
No Updates
J.D. McKissic
News
McKissic rushed four times for 38 yards and caught his only target for 27 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 46-18 victory over the Colts.

After starting the season as a healthy scratch three times in as many games, McKissic introduced himself to the league in a big way Sunday. Filling in for an injured C.J. Prosise (ankle) as the Seahawks' primary receiving back, the undrafted rookie out of Arkansas State took it the house on two separate occasions, including a 30-yard rushing score and a 27-yard catch, and was a big reason why Seattle was able to bury Indianapolis in the second half. However, this statistical outburst may be short-lived, as the 5-foot-10, 195-pound scatback is unlikely to push Eddie Lacy for early-down carries in the wake of Chris Carson's leg injury, not to mention Prosise could return as soon as this week to steal reps on passing downs.

Oday Aboushi
No Updates
Frank Clark
News
Clark hauled in his first interception of the season in Sunday's win over the Rams.

Clark added a sack, to bring his total to 2.5 on the season, as well as three solo tackles. With Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril banged up, Clark should be in line for a relatively healthy workload in the immediate future.

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 was waived by the Seahawks on Saturday.

There had been some rumblings of Boykin losing out on the backup spot, but that wasn't made clear until after the team's decision to waive the 24-year-old. Boykin has had a troubling offseason, which may have factored into the team's decision to part ways, but credit Austin Davis for earning his keeps during the preseason. Boykin likely will draw interest from some other teams, so he could still see the field at some point this season, just not in a blue and green uniform.

Luke Joeckel
News
Joeckel (knee) will be reevaluated in three weeks, Liz Mathews of USA Today reports.

This means Joeckel will miss games against the Giants, Texans and Redskins, and he'll have his next chance to play in Week 10 against the Cardinals -- a Thursday night matchup. For now, Mark Glowinski will slot in at left guard.

Injury
Knee - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 7 at N.Y. Giants
David Moore
News
The Seahawks selected Moore in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Moore played at a tiny Oklahoma school called East Central, but at his pro day he showed NFL-level athleticism. At 6-foot-1, 219 pounds, Moore ran the 40 in 4.43 seconds while adding a 36.5-inch vertical and 124-inch broad jump. He looks like an upside project for Seattle.

Shaquill Griffin
News
Griffin (concussion) was a full participant in the Seahawks' practice Thursday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

There has been no mention of when or how Griffin sustained the concussion, but he was nonetheless limited in practice Wednesday. The rookie third-round pick is apparently ready to go for Sunday's game against the 49ers, and will likely slide back into the role of nickel corner with Jeremy Lane's return.

Tyler Lockett
News
Lockett caught three of four targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Rams. He added a seven-yard run during the contest.

It was a disappointing encore to Lockett's 91-yard Week 4 performance. The third-year speedster has been held under 35 total yards in three of five games this season and has scored just once since Week 15 of the 2015 season. Things aren't about to get easier with a tough matchup against the Giants and a somewhat difficult test in the Texans coming after the bye.

Eddie Lacy
News
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Lacy and Thomas Rawls will both share the workload fairly evenly to compensate for the likely season-ending injury to Chris Carson (lower leg/ankle), Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. "There's no reason to have any criteria for [who starts and who doesn't] right now because we like our guys, and really, equal status now is good for us," Carroll said of Lacy and Rawls. "We'll see how they do."

Carroll's comments about "equal status" were more or less supported by how he doled out the offensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Rams, the first game the Seahawks played without the services of Carson. Lacy received the start in the contest, but played 19 snaps and gained 28 total yards on 10 touches, while Rawls received 32 snaps and picked up 39 total yards on 15 touches. Both players' uninspiring showings allowed neither to create much separation from the other, so the duo once again appears poised to split the bulk of the carries in Week 6 against the Giants. However, don't be surprised if Carroll eventually settles on one of the two as the lead back if Lacy dramatically outperforms Rawls, or vice versa.

Mike Davis
News
The Seahawks added Davis to their practice squad Monday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of SeattlePI.com reports.

After two seasons with the 49ers, Davis tried earning a spot with their rival during training camp. Although he was unable to earn a spot on their 53-man roster, the 24-year-old will look to impress with the Seahwaks' practice unit.

Blair Walsh
News
Walsh missed one of two field goals Sunday's 46-18 win over the Colts but made five extra points to finish with eight points, his highest total since Week 1.

Walsh's first miss of the year came from 37 yards, although he did hit a 44-yarder. The Seahawks offense came to life in the second half, providing Walsh with more scoring opportunities. Seattle plays at the Rams in Week 5, but whether the offense shows up is always a question for this team.

Tyrone Swoopes
No Updates
Russell Wilson
News
Wilson completed 24 of 37 passes for 198 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's game against the Rams. He also gained 16 yards on five carries in the 16-10 win.

Wilson averaged a paltry 5.4 yards per attempt and didn't have a single target with more than 37 receiving yards on the day. He finished third on the team in carries, but a long gain of just nine yards saw him finish with his lowest rushing total of the season. Wilson entered this one on the heels of back-to-back strong efforts, so it was a bit disappointing to see him held in check in what was considered a favorable matchup. He will enjoy a bye in Week 6 before taking on the Giants the following Sunday.

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 was waived by the Seahawks Saturday, Adam Caplan of the ESPN reports.

The 22-year-old back signed with the Seahawks in May as an undrafted free agent. Madden was eyeing a role at fullback with the club, but the team has ultimately decided to part ways with the USC product.

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.

Joe Jones
No Updates
Austin Davis
News
Davis completed 10 of 16 passes for 123 yards and touchdown Thursday, leading the Seahawks on a 75-yard game-winning scoring drive to beat the Raiders in the preseason finale.

Trevone Boykin entered camp as the favorite for the backup quarterback job behind Russell Wilson, but Davis outplayed him in the last three preseason games, including Thursday, when Boykin threw two interceptions. Davis was 5-for-5 for 67 yards on the winning drive, completing the 16-yard touchdown strike with 1:10 remaining. Boykin is a dual-threat quarterback who at times can dazzle, but Davis is a steadier veteran who may be less susceptible to turnovers. The team's decision on a backup could come down to whether it values upside over stability, or vice versa.

Michael Wilhoite
News
Wilhoite (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Wilhoite finished the week with a full practice after being limited Wednesday and Thursday to earn the questionable designation. The 30-year-old should resume his starting role on the Seahawks defense but has limited IDP upside at this point.

Jon Ryan

Germain Ifedi
News
Ifedi (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Liz Mathews of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Ifedi sustained minor injuries during last week's scuffle with Frank Clark but appears good to go moving forward.

Malcolm Johnson
News
Johnson (undisclosed) was waived from the Seahawks' injured reserve Monday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Johnson landed on injured reserve last week after suffering an undisclosed injury in practice. Now that he's no longer tied to the Seahawks, the 2015 sixth-rounder can immediately begin looking for work elsewhere.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 7 at N.Y. Giants
Jordan Simone
News
Simone (knee) reverted back to the Seahawks' injured reserve Thursday after clearing waivers.

Simone was waived/injured by the Seahawks on Wednesday after suffering a torn ACL. He'll now spend the entire 2017 on the team's injured reserve.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Justin Britt
News
Britt signed a three-year, $27 million contract extension with the Seahawks on Tuesday, freelance NFL reporter Adam Caplan reports.

Britt had been in the final year of his rookie deal, and his new extension keeps him under contract with Seattle through the 2020 campaign. He'll be expected to continue in his role as the team's starting center.

Luke Willson
News
Willson hauled in a six-yard touchdown in Sunday's 46-18 win over the Colts.

Willson slipped out into the flat early in the fourth quarter and waltzed into the end zone after a Russell Wilson play fake. It was Willson's second touchdown in as many games -- or, in other words, two more than Jimmy Graham has planted all season. Willson has long been a sneaky target down in the red zone, but playing him has some risks. While he might come up with a touchdown once in a while, he could also walk away with 10-yard game. It might hurt to watch him score while not in your lineup, but don't go digging for fool's gold.

Dion Jordan
News
Jordan (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list Saturday.

The news means that Jordan is eligible to return to game action following Week 6. Jordan will not count against the team's 53-man roster while he's sidelined with the knee injury.

Injury
Knee - Out for Week 7 at N.Y. Giants
Malik McDowell
News
McDowell (head) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Saturday.

His placement on the list ahead of the season opener means that he'll be ineligible to return to action until after Week 6. Even still, there's no guarantee McDowell will be ready by then and the Seahawks have yet to define any kind of role yet for the Michigan State product.

Injury
Head - Out for Week 7 at N.Y. Giants
Justin Coleman
News
The Patriots dealt Coleman to Seattle on Friday in exchange for a late-round draft pick, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Coleman should provide some depth to Seattle's secondary, but doesn't figure to have a huge impact defensively on Sunday's given the team's strength at the position.

Jimmy Graham
News
Graham caught six of eight targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Rams.

Graham tied for the team lead in targets, but a long gain of just nine yards limited his production in that regard. He salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with a four-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter for his first score of the season. Graham's role seems to be trending up after a sluggish start to the season, and he will enjoy the upcoming bye before he looks to keep it going Oct. 22 against the Giants.

Akeem King
News
King was waived by the Falcons on Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Despite a decent showing in the preseason, King faced an uphill battle to earn a roster spot out of camp. That dream has officially come to an end, as he's been handed his walking papers by Atlanta.

Joey Hunt
News
Hunt (ankle) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The Seahawks took plenty of caution with Hunt, but he is expected to be ready if called upon Sunday.

Thomas Rawls
News
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Rawls and Eddie Lacy will both share the workload fairly evenly to compensate for the likely season-ending injury to Chris Carson (lower leg/ankle), Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. "There's no reason to have any criteria for [who starts and who doesn't] right now because we like our guys, and really, equal status now is good for us," Carroll said of Rawls and Lacy. "We'll see how they do."

Carroll's comments about "equal status" were more or less supported by how he doled out the offensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Rams, the first game the Seahawks played without the services of Carson. Rawls, who had been a healthy scratch in the Week 4 win over the Colts, was on the field for 32 snaps to Lacy's 19. Neither back produced particularly well, however, as Rawls tallied 24 yards on 13 carries to go with two catches for 15 yards, while Lacy managed 19 yards on nine handoffs and hauled in his lone target for nine yards. The duo should split most of the carries in Week 6 against the Giants, but don't be surprised if Carroll eventually settles on one of the two as the lead back if Rawls dramatically outperforms Lacy, or vice versa.

Paul Richardson
News
Richardson brought in three of five targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Rams.

Sunday was the first real dud of the season for Richardson, who had tallied at least 59 yards or scored a touchdown in each of the first four weeks of the year. Despite Sunday's poor performance, Richardson is still having a career year as Seattle's big-play threat. He leads Seattle with four plays of 20 or more yards and two touchdowns. He is also second in yards and third in targets. Expect Week 5 to be more exception than rule as Richardson has looked pretty good since replacing the departed Jermaine Kearse atop the depth chart of the No. 2 wideout spot.

Jeremy Lane
News
Lane (groin) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Lane was a full participant Thursday and Friday, although Friday was just a walk-through, but also had the bye week to recover so the doubtful tag is fairly surprising. Rookie Shaquill Griffin will be slated to start opposite Richard Sherman once again with Lane unlikely to play.

Injury
Groin - Full Practice on Friday. Doubtful for Week 7 at N.Y. Giants

Nazair Jones
News
The Seahawks selected Jones in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 102nd overall.

Jones isn't the standout athlete you'd normally expect the Seahawks to target, but it's easy enough to see what use they have in mind for him. At 6-foot-5, 304 pounds, Jones is built to eat space.

Injury
Knee - Full Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 7 at N.Y. Giants
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 posted six tackles (four solo), half a sack and recovered a fumble for a touchdown in Sunday's 46-18 win over the Colts.

Wagner's score came at a key moment for the Seahawks, as it gave them a two-touchdown lead at the end of the third quarter and essentially put the game out of reach for a struggling Colts offense. With a team-high 33 tackles on the season, Wagner will continue to serve as one of the most productive defensive players in the league.

DeShawn Shead
News
Shead (knee) could potentially return after the Seahawks' Week 6 bye.

Head coach Pete Carroll indicated Shead is recovering as expected from January's ACL tear, and has either Week 7 or 8 in mind as targets for his return. The 29-year-old's status is likely to next be updated following the Seahawks' bye week as they prepare for a Week 7 matchup with the Giants.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Physically Unable to Perform

Rees Odhiambo
News
Odhiambo (chest) will not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Odhiambo was a full participant at practice Wednesday and was consequently absent from the Seahawks' injury report the rest of the week. The 25-year-old seems ready to play after sustaining a bruised sternum against the Colts last Sunday.

Bradley McDougald
News
McDougald is signing with Seattle on a one-year, $2 million contract, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

McDougald fills a clear need for a Seahawks team that previously didn't have any veteran depth at safety behind the phenomenal starting duo of Kam Chancellor (ankle) and Earl Thomas (leg) -- both of whom are recovering from surgery. It's a bit surprising McDougald had to settle for such a modest contract and a backup role, coming off a 2016 season in which he recorded a career-high 91 tackles (79 solo) while starting all 16 games for Tampa Bay. He also had 87 tackles (67 solo) and played all 16 games the previous year, but his work in pass coverage has always been questionable, which explains the inability to find a better offer.

Jarran Reed
News
Reed (hip) is questionable for the Seahawks' Week 4 game against the Jets, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

It's unclear when Reed suffered the hip injury, as is the severity of the ailment. Regardless, his status will be confirmed before kickoff.

DeAndre Elliott
News
Elliot underwent ankle surgery Thursday morning, Lindsey Wisniewski of USA Today reports.

Elliot was placed on injured reserve ahead of the team's season opener against the Packers and will be out for the entire regular season. He will now begin the rehab process in an effort to be ready for next season.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Marcus Smith
News
The Seahawks and Smith agreed to a deal on Friday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Smith spent his first three seasons with the Eagles before being released prior to training camp this summer. The 2014 first-round pick was unable to find a fit at outside linebacker in Philadelphia, tallying just four sacks in three seasons. He skipped all of the team's voluntary workouts this offseason, so he was likely looking for a change of scenery. Smith will be competing for a spot on the Seahawks' final roster this preseason.

Injury
Ankle - Full Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 7 at N.Y. Giants
Earl Thomas
News
Thomas (knee) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Thomas did not practice Wednesday and Thursday before putting in a full session Friday, avoiding the questionable tag. The Seahawks were likely just being cautious with their star safety, who should be all systems go for Week 5.

Mike Tyson
News
The Seahawks selected Tyson in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 187th overall.

Tyson fits the mold of a ball-hawking defensive back that Seattle tends to target in the draft. He was productive during his career at Cincinnati and capped off his senior season with five picks and five pass breakups. Tyson may not have any off the charts numbers, but he's a tough safety that should help on special teams at the very least.
