The Seattle Seahawks made a few moves to their roster and practice squad Tuesday including signing running back DuJuan Harris, a 27-year-old who has appeared in 24 NFL games and again promoting WR B.J. Daniels.
The Seattle Seahawks made a few moves to their practice squad Tuesday, including adding another running back, a spot where the team may need additional depth depending on how things shake out with Marshawn Lynch’s situation.
There was still no word as of Tuesday afternoon on Lynch’s trip to visit a sports hernia specialist in Philadelphia.
However, the team appears to be adding bodies at that spot in case the news is bad. Seattle earlier re-signed tailback Bryce Brown to the 53-man roster.
And the Seahawks signed running back DuJuan Harris to the practice squad. Harris has played in 24 NFL games with 253 yards in his career. He had previously this year been on the practice squad of the Saints after spending the preseason with the Vikings.
The Seahawks today also waived DL A.J. Francis, who had been signed last week. He did not play against the 49ers, however. Seattle filled his spot on the 53-man roster by adding WR B.J. Daniels from the practice squad.
Seattle also signed WR Tyler Slavin to the practice squad. Slavin began his college career at Arizona and finished it at New Mexico Highlands and was with the Rams in training camp. He is originally from Corona, Calif., and undoubtedly seen by Seahawks coach Pete Carroll during his high school days there.
Slavin and Harris put Seattle’s practice squad roster at 10 after the Seahawks also placed OL Terry Poole on the practice squad injured list. Poole was a fourth-round pick in 2015 out of San Diego State and spent all season on the practice squad. Seattle already had an opening on the practice squad after promoting linebacker Eric Pinkins over the weekend.
Seattle earlier also placed LB Nick Moody on Injured Reserve.
The promotion of Daniels to the 53-man roster gives Seattle six receivers, and the Seahawks may need the depth there with Paul Richardson considered questionable at best to play this weekend with a pulled hamstring that also caused him to sit out Sunday against the 49ers. Doug Baldwin is also battling a sprained ankle, though Carroll indicated Monday he would be able to play Sunday against the Steelers.
Daniels has played in four games this season with one catch, for 12 yards having made the conversion from quarterback in the spring.
