A week ago, Seahawks fans got their wish as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that defensive tackle Damon Harrison would visit the team in the coming week. While Harrison is still scheduled to visit Seattle, the team and fans will have to wait just a bit longer for any potential deal.

Harrison told Josina Anderson on Wednesday that he was entering into COVID protocol ahead of the weekend, in order to visit the Seahawks next week.

If Harrison successfully goes through testing protocol in the coming days, he could presumably sign with Seattle next week and be available to play in Week 5.

The Seahawks, with an open roster spot, currently have four natural defensive tackles on the active roster: Jarran Reed, Poona Ford, Bryan Mone, and Anthony Rush. Mone has been a surprising bright spot for Seattle so far this season, including registering a safety in the Week 3 victory over the Cowboys.

Should the Seahawks sign Harrison next week, Rush could be a candidate to be waived and then re-signed to the practice squad. For now, Seattle waits.
