Seahawks Promote Elijah Nkansah From Practice Squad

With two starting offensive linemen questionable for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Seahawks made a roster move to add depth to the position group.

The Seahawks made a roster move Saturday, signing tackle Elijah Nkansah from the practice squad. To make room on the 53-man roster, wide receiver Malik Turner was waived. 

Nkansah, a 6-foot-5, 315-pound rookie out of Toledo, adds depth to a Seattle offensive line that could be without starting right guard D.J. Fluker (hamstring) and right tackle Germain Ifedi (groin) during Sunday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Both Fluker and Ifedi are listed as questionable for the Week 16 contest and following Friday's practice at Virginia Mason Athletic Center, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the pair will be game-day decisions.

Turner, meanwhile, was promoted from the Seahawks practice squad back on Halloween following the Seahawks' release of veteran Brandon Marshall. The rookie wideout saw action in six games for Seattle, recording two catches for 20 yards.

The Seattle Seahawks take on the Kansas City Chiefs, the 53rd meeting between the two teams, for Week 16 of the 2022 season. Take a look back at some of their previous matchups.
