Seahawks release linebackers Mychal Kendricks, Michael Divinity from practice squad

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Seattle Seahawks Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Mychal Kendricks’ reunion with the Seattle Seahawks was brief. Just a couple of weeks after adding the veteran linebacker to their practice squad, the Seahawks released Kendricks on Tuesday. In addition to Kendricks, Seattle also released linebacker Michael Divinity, who had joined the team’s practice squad early in October.

Kendricks’ addition came at a time when Jordyn Brooks was out with an MCL sprain, while Cody Barton was dealing with an injury as well. With the linebacker corps in good health, the Seahawks were able to free up a pair of practice squad spots.

Still on the practice squad is linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong, who was elevated ahead of Kendricks to the game day roster in Week 7. Should Seattle need a game day addition to their linebacker corps moving forward, they can bring Armstrong up once more before he has to go through waivers in order to revert back.

Kendricks, 30, started 18 games in two seasons with the Seahawks, but hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since tearing his ACL in Week 17 last year.
