Dee Eskridge expected back for Seahawks this week

Boom baby.

What will definitely not solve the Seattle Seahawks current problems is a rookie wide receiver in his second NFL game. But, Dee Eskridge has been awesome in every fleeting moment we’ve seen him this year before his myriad of small injuries.

Good news, Seahawk fans, Pete Carroll says he’s coming back.

Eskridge and Penny Hart both went into concussion protocol following the Week 1 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Hart returned the next week, while Eskridge has had to take this slow. Concussions are brutal in both their longevity and variety.

Eskridge immediately established himself as the perfect fly-sweep guy, the distracting cog in Shane Waldron’s offense. He’s freaking fast.

He’s also shown to be a solid receiver in preseason and his off-target six-yard reception in Week 1. Good news for Seattle.

Rashaad Penny has missed the last two weeks, with Alex Collins taking the role of primary backup to Chris Carson, but Seattle has run so few plays that it’s been hard for any backup running back to get touches.

Benson Mayowa would be unfortunate, and another game without Brandon Shell is not an enjoyable picture. We hope for a speedy recovery for the rest of the injured Seahawks.
