L.J. Collier is back on the Seahawks roster three weeks after returning to practice, having been activated from injured reserve just ahead of the deadline for him to be added to the roster or stay on injured reserve for the season.
The Seahawks will also get two players back on the practice field this week, with cornerback Tre Brown and running back Travis Homer both being designated to return to practice. Brown has been on the physically unable to perform list since the start of training camp, the result of a knee injury that cut short his rookie season not long after he had taken over the starting job at left cornerback. Homer, meanwhile, has missed the last four games on injured reserve due to a rib injury.
For now, neither Brown nor Homer will count towards the 53-man roster, though they will have to be added to the roster before returning to game action.
Collier, who injured his elbow in August, landing him on injured reserve, had a setback in his return when he injured his thumb after returning to practice, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said last week that Collier was ready to go.
The Seahawks also signed two to their practice squad, receiver Kevin Kassis and linebacker Alexander Johnson. Seattle had two openings on the practice squad having released linebacker Christian Jones and running back Godwin Igwebuike on Tuesday.
This is the second stint on the practice squad this season for Kassis, a former Montana State standout who spent training camp with the Seahawks. Johnson appeared in 38 games with Denver over the past four seasons, starting 34. In 2020 he started all 16 games, recording 124 tackles.
