We now know the Seattle Seahawks’ 10-man practice squad to begin the 2018 NFL regular season. The team announced the full lineup on Monday, and among the standout names here is rookie quarterback Alex McGough, drafted in the seventh-round but placed on waivers in hopes that he’d be available to place on the PS.
The practice squad roster is as follows:
QB Alex McGough
WR Caleb Scott
WR Keenan Reynolds
CB Akeem King
RB Lavon Coleman
LB Antwione Williams
DT Frank Herron
G Jordan Roos
T Elijah Nkansah
TE Marcus Lucas
Of the ten players here, five of them (McGough, Scott, Reynolds, King, and Roos) were on the Seahawks’ 90-man roster throughout preseason. TE Marcus Lucas was part of Seattle’s preseason team in 2017, but was waived with an injury settlement. He bounced around the practice squads of the Indianapolis Colts and Oakland Raiders, before being signed by the Detroit Lions this offseason.
As for the other four PS guys, Coleman is a local kid from the University of Washington, best known for being backup to current Huskies RB star Myles Gaskin. He went undrafted and then signed with the Houston Texans prior to being cut.
Linebacker Antwione Williams is a fifth-round pick out of Georgia Southern who spent his rookie year with the Detroit Lions, only to be waived in 2017. He was signed to the Minnesota Vikings practice squad shortly thereafter, and signed a reserves/futures contract in the 2018 offseason. All 14 of Williams’ NFL appearances were in Detroit, including three starts and a fumble recovery.
Herron is an LSU alum who was not selected in this year’s draft, but was signed as an UDFA by the New England Patriots, and was waived the day after the team’s preseason finale against the New York Giants.
Lastly, Nkansah went undrafted out of Toledo, having played both left and right tackle in college, and was exclusively at LT in his senior season. He went on to earn first-team All-MAC honors for his performance on the field. Nkansah comes over from the Tennessee Titans, who signed him as an UDFA and cut him last weekend.
