Seahawks Elevate LB Cullen Gillaspia From Practice Squad; G Phil Haynes Questionable 

The Seahawks elevated linebacker Cullen Gillaspia from the practice squad after signing him earlier in the week.

Seahawks players depart the Virginia Mason Athletic Center on September 30, 2022 in advance of Week 4 vs. the Detroit Lions.

After signing with the Seahawks on Wednesday, Cullen Gillaspia will be in uniform with his new team on Sunday, having been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Seattle's Week 4 game in Detroit.

Additionally, guard Phil Haynes was added to the injury report as questionable for Sunday's game. Haynes, who started in Week 1 in place of an injured Damien Lewis, showed up on the injury report Thursday with an ankle injury, but was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Gillaspia, a 2019 seventh-round pick out of Texas A&M, appeared in 38 games over the past three seasons with the Texans and Giants.

Gillaspia's elevation is likely a move to add depth on special teams, as he was a special teams mainstay with the Texans and Giants, playing 647 special teams snaps over three seasons. The Seahawks lost one of their top special teams players this week with running back Travis Homer going on injured reserve due to a rib injury.
