Seahawks Place LB Mychal Kendricks On IR, Sign DB Simeon Thomas To PS

Adam Schefter reports that Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks suffered a broken tibia during Monday’s game and is now out for the season.

The Seattle Seahawks officially placed Kendricks on injured reserve Wednesday and signed DB Simeon Thomas to their practice squad.

Kendricks was just reinstated from an eight-game suspension for insider trading.

You can expect the Seahawks to place Kendricks on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.

Kendricks pleaded guilty to insider trading a few months ago, but never profited off it, made immediate restitution, has no criminal record, and is not scheduled to be sentenced until January 24. Reports have said that Kendricks could face between 30 to 37 months in prison based on federal guidelines.

Kendricks, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012. He was entering the fourth year of his five-year, $29.896 million contract that included $16.4 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $5.85 million for the 2018 season when the Eagles designated him as a post-June 1 release a few months ago.

The Browns later signed Kendricks to a one-year contract worth a maximum of $3.5 million only to cut him loose shortly after the news of the insider trading charges surfaced.

Kendricks signed a one-year contract with the Seahawks a few months ago.

In 2018, Kendricks has appeared in four games for the Seahawks and recorded 20 tackles, two sacks, and a pass defense.
