The Seahawks placed tight end Gerald Everett on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, putting in doubt his availability for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Wyman: What exactly Seahawks’ run defense is struggling against

Seattle went through the entire 2020 season without a positive COVID case among its players. The Seahawks had a few players land on the COVID list as close contacts, but Everett’s is the first confirmed positive test of a player.

Everett tweeted “Be back soon,” on Wednesday. Everett’s vaccination status is unknown but if he is vaccinated he could return with two negative tests 24 hours apart. Carroll said earlier this month that there were two unvaccinated players on the roster.

It could end up being a two-game absence for Everett with the Seahawks having a home game next Thursday.

Roster moves

Seattle designated TE Colby Parkinson (foot) and OL Cedric Ogbuehi (biceps) to return to practice after both spent the first three weeks on injured reserve. Seattle would need to make adjustments to the 53-man roster to have either available to play this week. Carroll said CB Tre Brown (knee) is probably another week away from returning.

Seattle also signed QB Jake Luton to the practice squad a day after he was waived from the active roster. Wide receiver Phillip Dorsett II was also signed to the practice squad. Dorsett spent last season on injured reserve with the Seahawks following foot surgery.
