Seahawks Activate J.D. McKissic From Injured Reserve List

J.D. McKissic is on track to make his 2018 debut when the Seahawks host the 49ers on Sunday. The running back was activated from the injured reserve list on Wednesday and added to the 53rd roster, meaning that if all goes well in practice this week, he should be on the field for the Sunday game, if he is not one of the seven inactive players announced before it kickoff.

McKissic, who was injured before the start of the season with a foot injury, returned to practice last week.

"J.D's coming back," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. "We're going to hopefully get him through the week, and if everything works out right then we'd like to have him participate this week."

McKissic appeared in 13 games last year, starting one, and rushed for 187 yards and a touchdown of 46 carries. He also had 34 catches for 266 yards and two touchdowns. McKissic does not just add the depth at running back, he also has played the receiver, and last year was one of Seattle's top performers on special teams.

The Seahawks waived receiver Keenan Reynolds on Tuesday, opening a spot for McKissic. Reynolds was still in Seattle Wednesday, however, having been re-signed to the practice squad after clearing the waivers. The Seahawks also brought back the tight end to Tyrone Swoopes, signing him to the practice squad Wednesday. The Seahawks had an open practice squad spot after releasing the reception of Malachi Dupre on Tuesday.
