Rapoport mentions that the Seahawks were forced to use some of their backup defensive ends including Branden Jackson as blocking tight ends in practice and could do so in the game today.

ESPN reporters recently tossed out Bills’ Tyler Kroft, Ravens’ Hayden Hurst, and Buccaneers’ O.J. Howard as other potential tight ends worth watching.
We’ll have more regarding the Seahawks as the news is available.
