Seahawks place J.D. McKissic on IR Womens Kam Chancellor Jersey , claim LB Jermaine Grace off waivers The Seattle Seahawks have made yet another change to its 53-man roster, by placing running back J.D. McKissic on injured reserve, a couple of weeks after he suffered a broken foot in the team’s preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers. ESPN’s Field Yates reported the news on Monday, and the team later confirmed it themselves.With an open spot available due to McKissic’s move to IR, the Seahawks have claimed former Cleveland Browns linebacker Jermaine Grace off of waivers. A key difference here is that McKissic being put on IR now (as opposed to before last Saturday’s roster cuts) means he can come back later in the season, after he misses a minimum of eight games. Seattle has a bye in Week 7, so McKissic isn’t eligible to return to the active roster until Week 10.Grace is an undrafted free agent out of the University of Miami. He was dismissed from the team as a senior for violating NCAA rules. First signed by the Atlanta Falcons, he played in five games of the 2017 season before he was waived in November. The Indianapolis Colts picked him up, as he appeared in six more games, then waived him in May. Shortly thereafter http://www.seahawkslockerroom.com/authentic-dion-jordan-jersey , the Browns picked him up, then put Grace through waivers over the weekend. Seattle now has four running backs on the active roster — Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, Mike Davis, and C.J. Prosise — and the inclusion of Grace means the Seahawks are up to seven linebackers.Another Bradley McDougald appreciation post Let’s take a moment to recognize the contributions of Bradley McDougald.Undrafted out of Kansas in 2013, McDougald has risen the ranks to go from signing with the Kansas City Chiefs, getting cut, hanging on with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, starting 36 games over three years, not being retained by the Bucs http://www.seahawkslockerroom.com/authentic-tedric-thompson-jersey , barely getting notice on the free agent market, signing a one-year deal to definitely be a backup on the Seattle Seahawks — to now being one of the best strong safeties in the league so far in 2018. And it started last year when McDougald took over for Kam Chancellor in in the team’s seventh game of the season.in his 13 starts with the Seahawks so far, McDougald has 81 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, has had up to nine pass breakups, including one leading to an interception, and at least two tackles for a loss. FootballOutsiders has a metric called Defeats, and McDougald leads all safeties in those so far this season.McDougald is doing this now on a three-year http://www.seahawkslockerroom.com/authentic-rasheem-green-jersey , $13.5 million contract, which doesn’t even make him one of the 30 highest-paid safeties in the league. Unless Seattle wants to reward him in 2019 for his over-the-top efforts (assuming this continues), and that’s not likely, then the Seahawks will have one of the absolute best bargains in the league. As of now, they already do.Without Earl Thomas, they’ll need him even more.
