The Seattle Seahawks promoted wide receiver Kasen Williams to their active roster ahead of Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams.
With only four receivers on the active roster and Doug Baldwin questionable due to a hamstring injury, the Seahawks were in need of additional depth. Baldwin practiced on Friday and is expected to be able to play.
Williams has spent the entire season on the practice squad after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent in June. He was released during final cuts after training camp and re-signed to the practice squad in September.
Williams caught four passes for 58 yards and a touchdown in four preseason games for Seattle.
The receiving corps of the Seahawks now consists of four undrafted free agents with three of those having played their college ball at Washington (Williams, Jermaine Kearse, Kevin Smith).
To clear a roster spot, the Seahawks placed tight end Anthony McCoy on injured reserve.
McCoy appeared in just one game for Seattle after being re-signed earlier this month. McCoy suffered a high-ankle sprain against the Baltimore Ravens and was inactive last week against the Cleveland Browns.
