Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor returned to the team Wednesday after sitting out the first two games of the season.
Chancellor, a three-time Pro Bowler, did not report to the team at the beginning of training camp, and Seattle played its first two games with Dion Bailey and DeShawn Shead starting at strong safety. Chancellor has been on the reserve/did not report list, so a roster move will have to be made to add him to the 53-man roster before he can play in a game, though the team was granted a roster exemption, allowing him to return to practice immediately.
Chancellor, a fifth-round pick in 2010, has started 61 games over the past four seasons, and earned second-team All-Pro honors each of the past two seasons.
Asked about Chancellor's continued absence last week, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said, "I'm just disappointed like I know he is and everybody is that it hasn't found a way to get him here, that's all, and been disappointed about it… He needs to come back in. Yeah, that's it, we need to get him in."
