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.
Free agent DT Damon Harrison tells me this morning he is going into the CoVID protocol into and over the weekend, so he can presumably be clear for a scheduled visit with the #Seahawks actually not until next week. So the actual visit is *not this week.— IG: JosinaAnderson (@JosinaAnderson) September 30, 2020
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.
