Seattle Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks was back at practice Friday. The significance of that being, of course, that he isn’t able to practice until next week. Additionally, he isn't eligible to play until Week 14. Head coach Pete Carroll made the announcement, per Charean Williams of ProFootballTalk.
Kendricks started the season with the Cleveland Browns but was cut in the wake of his admission to insider trading. Shortly after, Seattle picked him up. However, he may not be on the team for too long, as he is facing upward of 25 years in jail. His sentencing will come on January 24. Upon his admission, the NFL would suspend him indefinitely. Since then, his suspension was reduced to eight games.
Despite this situation, the linebacker is eligible to play in Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings and has totaled two sacks in three appearances with Seattle.
The question remains: Will we see him in Week 14? Furthermore, how much longer can we count on him to be on an NFL field? The league may have reduced the suspension, but insider trading is a serious crime. And there’s no running from that.
