With Doug Baldwin dealing with a knee injury, the Seahawks added receiver depth this week by promoting Keenan Reynolds from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Safety Shalom Luani was waived to make room on the roster.
Reynolds, a quarterback at Navy, signed with Seattle during the offseason and was waived when the Seahawks trimmed their roster to 53, and was then signed to the practice squad. Reynolds had four catches for 35 yards in the preseason.
The Seahawks acquired Luani, who played at Washington State University, in a trade with the Oakland Raiders prior to setting their 53-man roster earlier this month. He was inactive for Seattle’s season opener at Denver.
The Seahawks also made some changes to their practice squad, signing cornerback Simeon Thomas and receiver Malik Turner. The Seahawks claimed Thomas, a rookie out of Louisiana-Lafayette, off waivers prior to the start of the season, then waived him last Friday. Turner, an undrafted rookie out of Illinois, signed with Seattle during the first week of training camp. He caught five passes for 91 yards and a touchdown during the preseason, then was waived as part of the cut down to 53 players.
The Seahawks had one open spot on their practice squad after promoting Akeem King to the 53-man roster last weekend, and freed up another spot by releasing defensive end Frank Herron.
