Seahawks' Godwin Igwebuike: Bumped up from practice squad
The Seahawks elevated Igwebuike to the active roster ahead of Thursday Night Football against San Francisco.
Igwebuike spent the season on and off Seattle's practice squad before being elevated for the first time ahead of Sunday's loss to Carolina.

Seahawks' Godwin Igwebuike: Available Sunday vs. Carolina
Seattle elevated Igwebuike from its practice squad Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
With both Kenneth Walker (ankle) and DeeJay Dallas (ankle) listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, the Seahawks will bring aboard Igwebuike to add some depth at running back. The transaction likely indicates that the Seahawks are anticipating at least one of Walker or Dallas to be inactive. If that's the case, Igwebuike would likely dress Sunday, though he may only be in store for a limited role. During the 2021 season, Igwebuike took 18 carries for 118 yards and a touchdown and added seven receptions for 60 yards on 10 targets.... See More ... See Less

Igwebuike signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Lions on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

The reserve running back appeared in all 17 games for the Lions last season, tallying 18 rushes for 118 yards and one touchdown while adding seven catches for 60 yards, but he made his biggest impact as the team's primary kick returner with 697 return yards.

Igwebuike was targeted once but did not record a catch during Sunday's 37-30 win over Green Bay.

The special-teamer will thus finish the 2021 campaign with 18 carries for 118 rushing yards and one touchdown along with seven catches on 10 targets for 60 receiving yards. While his stats may not jump off the page, it was largely a successful season for the converted safety who transitioned to running back during the offseason. Igwebuike will be an exclusive-rights free agent and has a good chance to stick around in Detroit given his usefulness on special teams.... See More ... See Less
