The Seattle Seahawks made a series of roster moves on Tuesday including reinstating suspended FB Derrick Coleman and placing LB Brock Coyle on injured reserve with the designation to return, per Bob Condotta.
Coleman, 24, is in the final year of his three-year, $1.485 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $585,000 for the 2015 season.
He arrested on charges of vehicular assault and hit and run last week and placed on the reserve/suspended list. However, HC Pete Carroll told reporters on Monday that he was likely to be reinstated this week, so this shouldn’t come as a major surprise.
This season, Coleman has appeared in five games and ran for four yards on two carries to go along with one reception for zero yards receiving and no touchdowns.
Coyle, 25, has been dealing with a knee injury in recent weeks. This move will keep him out of the lineup for the next eight weeks.
Coyle is in the second year of his three-year, $1.533 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $510,000 for the 2015 season.
This season, Coyle has appeared in five games and recorded three tackles for the Seahawks.
