The Seattle Seahawks play their final game prior to the by against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8, with the possibility that they could see several key offensive players return after the bye. From Russell Wilson to Dee Eskridge, and depending on the progression of his recovery from a neck injury, potentially Chris Carson.

In the meantime, the Hawks will face a 1-5 Jaguars team while a bit short handed on special teams. The Hawks tend to use the fifth wide receiver on the roster on a number of special teams units. However, with just four receivers on the active roster, and the receivers on the practice squad with the size to play special teams having already used up their elevations for the season, they needed to look elsewhere to fill the role. They have done so by elevating a player from a different position.

Muse was a third round pick of the Las Vegas Raiders in the 2020 NFL Draft, but spent most of his rookie season on injured reserve. Then, on the Monday prior to the start of the 2021 season, Muse was waived without ever having seen the field for the Raiders outside of preseason, after which point he was signed by the Seahawks to the practice squad, and is now likely set to make his NFL debut Sunday.
