Seahawks Activate TE Gerald Everett Off Covid-19 List; C Ethan Pocic Returns To Practice

Tight end Gerald Everett returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday, while center Ethan Pocic returned to practice from injured reserve. 


Gerald Everett was back on the practice field for the Seahawks on Monday, as Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said would be the case. The tight end has missed the past two games on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Center Ethan Pocic, who has missed the last four games on injured reserve with a knee injury, also returned to practice. For now, Pocic does not count towards the 53-man roster, but a move would have to be made before he can play in a game. Pocic has up to 21 days to practice without counting toward the roster, at which point the Seahawks would have to make a move to add him to the 53-man roster or leave him on injured reserve for the year.

Everett, who started Seattle's first three games, has eight catches for 77 yards, including a touchdown in a season-opening win over the Colts. Pocic, Seattle's starting center in 2020, battled a hamstring injury in camp and Kyle Fuller emerged as the starter to open the season. Pocic did play a few series in place of Fuller in Week 1 before injuring his knee.

No corresponding move was needed to add Everett to the active roster because the Seahawks had an open spot on the roster having placed receiver Dee Eskridge on injured reserve last week.

The Seattle Seahawks distributed T-shirts to celebrate the Muckleshoot community and recognize Indigenous Peoples' Day. The T-shirt was designed by a member of the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, incorporating the Seahawks logo and Coast Salish design elements.
