Josh Gordon is eligible to return from suspension this week, and the Seahawks are hoping he is able to contribute right away.
Gordon, who was suspended last December for violating the league's policies on performance enhancing drugs and substances of abuse, was added to the 53-man roster from the Exempt/Commissioner Permission list on Monday, and will be able to practice when the team hits the field on Wednesday.
"We've got to get him on the practice field and see what he looks like," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. "He's been working out really hard—I've been able to watch his workouts on video a couple times here to see that he's in really good shape. He's really big and strong too, so we're excited to see how he does. We're planning the week like he has a chance to contribute, so we'll see. We'll hold out a good hope and thought and see where it fits."
Receiver Penny Hart was waived on Monday to make room on the roster. Hart, who first joined the Seahawks as a member of the practice squad last year, has appeared in 11 games this season, primarily on special teams. He had one catch for 3 yards and one rush for 19 yards.
Additionally, linebacker Mychal Kendricks was signed by Washington off Seattle's practice squad, so the Seahawks have an open spot there.
