The Seahawks' elevated QB Sean Mannion to the active roster ahead of Monday's game against the Eagles.
Seattle made this same move last week when Drew Lock started in place of Geno Smith. We will know for sure about 90 minutes before the game, but it sounds like it'll be Lock undercenter again for the Seahawks in a near must-win game for them against Philadelphia.
The Seattle Seahawks are activating QB Sean Mannion to their active roster for Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers.
With their QB1 Geno Smith looking like a game-time decision due to a groin injury, the recently signed practice squad QB Mannion will be active for game day. Mannion hasn't played a snap in the NFL since 2021 but is somewhat familiar with Seattle's system, having had separate stints with the team in 2021 and 2022. Mannion has played for three different teams since being a 2015 third-rounder and has made three career starts. He'll be the team's third option with QB Drew Lock as the next-up guy if Smith can't go.
