Cornerback Tre Flowers, who went on injured reserve earlier this month with a hamstring injury, has been designated to return to practice this week, as has defensive tackle Bryan Mone, who went on injured reserve last month with an ankle injury.
Neither count towards the 53-man roster for now, but a move would have to be made to add them to the roster before they could play in a game.
The Seahawks also brought back Penny Hart just two days after waiving him, signing the second-year receiver to their practice squad after he cleared waivers on Tuesday. The Seahawks also signed veteran guard Alex Boone to their practice squad.
The Seahawks had two open spots on the practice squad having released tackle Andrew Jones this week and with linebacker Mychal Kendricks signing with the Washington Football Team.
Boone, 33, started 86 games in an eight-year career, six of which he spent with the 49ers, who signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State in 2009. He last played in 2017, starting 13 games for the Arizona Cardinals, but decided to attempt a comeback.
"He has turned around his thinking and wants to play, so we're anxious to see what that looks like," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said last week when asked about reports that Boone was going through the COVID-19 testing protocol with Seattle.
Boone gives the Seahawks extra depth on the offensive line where injuries have taken their toll of late, particularly at guard. Starting left guard Mike Iupati left Sunday's game with a stinger, the severity of which is not yet known. Guard/tackle Jamarco Jones was placed on injured reserve last week with a groin injury, while guard Phil Haynes has been dealing with a groin injury that has kept him out of the past three games.
Hart, who has appeared in 11 games this year, was waived Monday to make room on the 53-man roster for receiver Josh Gordon, but Gordon was placed on the Exempt/Commissioner Permission list a day later, so he no longer counts towards the 53-man roster, meaning the Seahawks currently have an open spot.
