nsah from their practice squad on Saturday with two offensive line starters potentially out for Sunday night’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.Wide receiver Malik Turner was waived to open a roster spot for Nkansah’s promotion.RIght guard D.J. Fluker (hamstring) and right tackle Germain Ifedi (groin) are both questionable to play and will be game-time decisions. Fluker has missed the last two games with a hamstring strain. Ifedi injured his groin in practice on Thursday and did not practice on Friday.If both Fluker and Ifedi can’t play Reggie Ragland Jersey , it would likely result in Ethan Pocic starting at right guard with George Fant starting at right tackle. Assuming both Fluker and Ifedi would be inactive, it would have left Seattle without a backup tackle available on the roster prior to Nkansah’s promotion. Additionally, Nkansah could allow Seattle to still run their six offensive linemen sets.Nkanasah is an undrafted free agent rookie out of the University of Toledo. He spent the preseason with the Tennessee Titans before joining Seattle’s practice squad after roster cuts in September.Turner appeared in six games for the Seahawks with two catches for 20 yards. Chiefs owner Clark Hunt met with reporters briefly Saturday afternoon, and like the rest of the world, said he was “deeply disturbed” by the Tyreek Hill audio which led to their star receiver’s banishment.He didn’t elaborate much beyond the statement General Manager Brett Veach issued yesterday, citing the ongoing investigation into allegations Hill abused his 3-year-old son.The Chiefs moved quickly to release running back Kareem Hunt last year when they realized he lied to them about his incident , and when asked about the difference with Hill, Hunt dodged.“I’d just point out that Tyreek is not with the franchise right now and we’re going to go through the process, and as Brett said, we’ll make the right decision about Tyreek at the right time,” Hunt said, via Brooke Pryor of the .Hunt also said: “That audio was really among the first information we received of the investigation.” Which makes sense Womens Carlos Hyde Jersey , since they never interviewed Hill about the incident.Asked about the confidence he has in his people to do the due diligence on researching players, Hunt acknowledged there’s always a chance things go wrong.“I think on any player that you bring into the organization, there’s some element of risk,” Hunt said. “Could be his playing ability, could be things that distract him off the field, as well as trouble they get into.“That’s a risk that you take. It’s something that as a franchise Demarcus Robinson Jersey , we have to be willing to own when it doesn’t go the right way. It’s something that I believe, and it’s something that Brett believes as well.”They owned it quickly with Hunt. They’ve been less hasty this time, though they have told Hill not to report to any of their offseason activities while the investigation commences.
