When Seattle drafted rookie WR Dee Eskridge in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft, the expectation was to make a substantial impact as the third wide receiver, using his speed and flashy agility to stretch out the field and make the Seahawks more dynamic on offense, complementing DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
But Eskridge has barely had the chance to get going. After suffering a concussion during Week 1 in Indianapolis, the Western Michigan product has not returned to the field since. Eskridge has had several tests for the evaluation of his concussion, including having to go out of state for some of them.
However, the return for Eskridge appears to be on the horizon.

Seattle comes of the bye for a Week 10 matchup in Green Bay vs Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Getting Eskridge back on the field (and potentially along with some guy named Wilson) will be crucial if the Seahawks aspire to quickly turn their season around.
