The Seahawks promoted two players off of their practice squad Friday ahead of their trip to Cleveland, adding guard Jordan Roos and tight end Jacob Hollister to the 53-man roster.
Guard/center Ethan Pocic was placed on injured reserve and safety Adrian Colbert was waived to make room on the 53-man roster.
Roos, who first joined the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue in 2017, spent his rookie year on the active roster, then spent last season and the beginning of this year on the practice squad. He provides needed offensive line depth with starting with left tackle Duane Brown and right guard D.J. Fluker both listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Browns.
Hollister, who was acquired in a trade with New England in the offseason, showed promise as a pass-catching tight end in training camp, and was added to the practice squad after being waived prior to the start of the season. George Fant, who has played as a sixth lineman/blocking tight end over the past two seasons, is the most likely candidate to start at left tackle if Brown is out, so Hollister gives the Seahawks a third tight end in addition to Will Dissly and Luke Willson if Fant isn’t available for that role.
Pocic, a second-round pick out of LSU in 2017, missed the previous three games with a mid-back injury. Colbert, a former starter with the 49ers, signed to Seattle’s practice squad earlier this season, then was promoted to the active roster, though he was inactive each of the past two games.
The Seahawks and the Browns will meet this Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium for the sixth game of the 2019 season. Take a look back at photos from past games between the two teams.
