RENTON Tedric Thompson Color Rush Jersey , Wash. (AP) — the normalcy provided by life on a football field.The 28-year old Kendricks is returning from an eight-game suspension due to violations of the NFL’s personal conduct policy stemming from guilty pleas to insider trading charges in September. Kendricks pleaded guilty to one count of securities fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud.“This is my escape,” Kendricks said Saturday. “Football is everything for me and to have lost that also was very hard. That also was probably the hardest thing, having to walk away from the game that I love, from a team that has accepted me. Just wanting to be here and not being able to hurt.”Football wasn’t the only thing he’s lost. He says he has lost friendships since his issues became public this summer.“Deep down, I’ll never truly know who is with me or not, but I can tell there’s a shift in energy between those who know me,” he said. “Those who aren’t supposed to be in my life won’t be. And through hard situations like this Ethan Pocic Color Rush Jersey , that sifts out.”Kendricks was released by the Cleveland Browns after the charges were filed in late August. The Seahawks signed Kendricks after a season-opening loss to the Denver Broncos as Shaquem Griffin and Austin Calitro struggled to replace an injured K.J. Wright at weak-side linebacker. He played in three games — making two starts — and recorded 15 total tackles and two sacks prior to his suspension.Kendricks was suspended indefinitely by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Oct. 2. The league eventually settled on an eight-game suspension after reviewing the matter and speaking with Kendricks.With Wright again out while addressing ongoing problems with his knee, Kendricks’ return could be a significant boost for the Seahawks’ stretch run. He has been allowed to practice with the team for the last two weeks, but was not eligible to play until Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings.“He looks really good on the practice field,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “Like when he played for us, we really felt his quickness. You could see the plays that he can make and the savvy that he has that adds to it. So, it’s going to be a while before he’s truly comfortable in the playing mode just because it’s happened so fast, but his awareness really allows him to jump right back in. We’re going to expect him to be active and be part of it and play a lot in the game.”His return to the field comes against his brother Shaquill Griffin Color Rush Jersey , Eric, who plays linebacker for the Vikings.“It is special in the sense that during a hard time like this you lean on those that love you,” Mychal Kendricks said. “You lean on those that have been there all your life and it’s emotional coming back. What better way to come back than to play a loved one.”He faces up to 25 years in prison when sentenced in January.“That part is inevitable and I probably won’t speak on that,” he said, noting he is focusing on staying rooted in the present.“I’m going to be where my feet are. I’m not going to harp on the past. I’m not going to predict the future. I’m just going to be right where I’m at. So take it day-by-day.”Notes: Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) will be a game-time decision due to a hip injury. He was unable to practice during the week. . RB Rashaad Penny (ankle) and FB Tre Madden (chest) are also listed as questionable. RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The biggest concern about the Seattle Seahawks‘ overhauled defense entering the season was probably the pass rush.The worries proved to be true in the season opener when the Seahawks generated just one sack and very little pressure against a quarterback that mostly sat in the pocket.The challenge in Week 2 will be different with the Seahawks facing the mobility of second-year Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, but the need to wreak at least some havoc in the backfield remains the same.“Anytime you play you want to get the quarterback off the spot. Anytime you end up with one sack Delano Hill Color Rush Jersey , everyone would like to have three or four,” Seattle defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. said. “It’s something certainly we want to get better at. … No question you want more pressure.”Seattle’s pass rush was perhaps a bigger worry going into the season than any of the changes that took place in its secondary. The Seahawks played most of last season without Cliff Avril due to a neck injury but still had Michael Bennett teaming with Frank Clark and finding success. Seattle finished last season 13th in the league with 39 sacks and was in the middle of the pack in the league rankings on the percentage of dropbacks that resulted in a sack. They were decent numbers considering the changes Seattle went through midseason with the loss of one of their top pass rushers.The overhaul in the offseason left most of the burden on Clark as really the only proven pass rusher on the roster. Avril hasn’t completely shut the door on playing again, but it seems unlikely. Bennett was traded to Philadelphia as part of Seattle’s changes.The opener against Denver showed there is still plenty to figure out.Clark had Seattle’s lone sack, but just one of the five quarterback hits on Case Keenum. Seattle rarely brought pressure and the front four was unable to generate enough heat to make Keenum uncomfortable.“We got stuck on the line of scrimmage on play passes and was really the part that was really disappointing that we didn’t respond better to get into our pass-rush mode,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “It just happened. That’s one phase of it and we would have liked to have got off on the edge a little better than we did. It’s just stuff we’ve got to keep working on.”Getting Dion Jordan on the field more would be a big boost for Seattle. Jordan was limited to just 15 plays in the opener after missing all of training camp with a lower leg injury. Jordan was only activated to from the physically unable to perform list when Seattle made its final cuts, and his inclusion in Week 1 was a bit of a surprise considering the time he missed.“Not having those reps for a while I was definitely a little rusty but other than that I physically felt really good,” Jordan said.Jordan flashed late last season when he finally was healthy enough to get back on the field. He had four sacks in five games last season and was seen as a major piece of the pass rush moving forward. Jordan said he should be on the field more considering the way he felt coming out of the opener.“We’ve got to do a better job this week of sticking to our rush plan Earl Thomas Color Rush Jersey , sticking to it, and executing,” Jordan said. “Understanding that certain quarterbacks and (offensive coordinators), they’re going to try and get the ball out quick and block them up with eight guys in there so we can’t get to them. We have to understand that and find a way around it.”NOTES: Carroll didn’t have updates on the timelines for three injured players: WR Doug Baldwin (knee), LB K.J. Wright (knee surgery) and G D.J. Fluker (hamstring). None of the three participated in practice Thursday. … LB Bobby Wagner (groin) and rookie CB Tre Flowers (hamstring) also sat out practice.
