The Seahawks made several roster moves Tuesday, activating linebacker Brock Coyle off of the injured reserve/designated to return list and re-signing tight end Chase Coffman, and waiving receiver B.J. Daniels, safety Akeem Davis and running back DuJuan Harris.
Coyle, who made the team as an undrafted rookie last season and established himself as a key special teams player, had already returned to practice, as is allowed by the IR/designated to return rules, but this is the first week he can return to the 53-man roster, and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that Monday that move was coming this week.
“Yes, he’s coming up,” Carroll said. “We’re really fired up to get him up. He’s been full speed for a couple weeks. He waited through the process, so we’re really happy to add him back into all of the special teams. He’s a core special teamer for us, and he’s really primed and ready to go. So he’ll give us a little boost where we’d like to see it, and he’ll be ready to back up at linebacker.”
Coffman signed with Seattle after Jimmy Graham went down with a season-ending injury, but was waived after being inactive for one game.
Daniels, who switched from quarterback to receiver during the offseason and has spent time on the active roster and the practice squad, has appeared in six games, catching two passes for 18 yards. Davis signed last week and saw significant playing time on special teams against Baltimore. Harris, who was signed off the practice squad earlier this month, appeared in two games, carrying 20 times for 49 yards, including 18 carries for 42 yards in relief of Thomas Rawls on Sunday.
Additionally, receiver Antwan Goodley, defensive tackle Justin Hamilton and linebacker Alex Singleton were released from the practice squad.
