Seahawks Elevate QB Sean Mannion & S Ty Okada From Practice Squad

Sean Mannion has been elevated from the practice squad for the second week in a row with starting quarterback Geno Smith questionable heading into Monday night’s game.


The Seahawks elevated quarterback Sean Mannion and safety Ty Okada from the practice squad ahead of Monday night's game against the Eagles.

They give the Seahawks added depth at their respective positions with quarterback Geno Smith and safety Jamal Adams both listed as questionable for the game.

Smith missed last week's game with a groin injury, leading to Drew Lock making his first start as a Seahawk. Smith was limited in practice throughout the week, and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Smith "Made it through the week. He made it through with the work that he's done. He's still questionable and we'll wait and see what happens on gameday."

Adams has had a limited workload throughout the season due to the torn quadriceps tendon that ended his 2022 season, but this week he did not participate in practice Thursday, Friday or Saturday.

"He's a great player, and I'm trying to maximize his recovery and make sure that he's available to us as much as we possibly can get him," Carroll said of Adams. "So we helped him out this week as much as we could."

Mannion, who spent time with the Seahawks in training camp two seasons ago and on the practice squad last season, signed with Seattle last week and served as the backup to Lock in last weekend's game against the 49ers. Okada, an undrafted rookie out of Montana State, was also elevated for Seattle's Week 11 game against the Rams.
