Report: Mychal Kendricks returning to the Seahawks’ practice squad, Alex Collins joins him

So much for that short-lived reunion between the Seattle Seahawks and linebacker Mychal Kendricks. A day after the Seahawks released Kendricks from their practice squad, in addition to fellow linebacker Michael Divinity, the Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta reports that Kendricks will be returning to Seattle.

While it comes across as an odd situation, it seems as though this was the Seahawks trying to do Kendricks a solid: another team, with a clearer path to their 53-man roster, wanted to sign him to their practice squad and so Seattle released him. With that falling through, the Seahawks brought him back.

While Kendricks will take one of the spots vacated by, well, himself, it looks like Alex Collins will take the other open spot. It was reported last week Collins was headed to Seattle to enter COVID-19 testing protocol before joining the team’s practice squad. With protocol cleared, ESPN’s Brady Henderson has reported Collins will sign on Wednesday.

With Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde, and Travis Homer all carrying injuries, Collins could make his first appearance for the Seahawks since January 2017 on Sunday against the Bills.
