Renton, Wash. — Kam Chancellor ended his holdout and reported to the Seahawks on Wednesday after missing training camp and the first two weeks of the season.
Chancellor arrived at the team facility early Wednesday, his first appearance since June’s minicamp. His holdout lasted nearly eight weeks.
The Seahawks are 0-2 after losses to the Rams and Packers during his absence.
“It was hard to watch those games,” Chancellor said. “I’m just ready to play football.”
Coach Pete Carroll said the team is planning for Chancellor to play Sunday against Chicago, but said that would be assessed as the week goes on.
The Seahawks will have a two-week roster exemption for Chancellor, but he must be added to the 53-man roster at least 24 hours before kickoff Monday, Oct. 5, against the Lions.
Chancellor has potentially lost more than $2 million with the holdout that did not result in a new contract.
Carroll said team officials would not discuss any of the business aspects of Chancellor’s return, including if any fines will be enforced.
Chancellor acknowledged he did consider holding out for the entire season.
“Those things I would rather deal with at the end of the season,” Chancellor said. “Right now, it’s about coming back and playing football.”
Said linebacker Bobby Wagner: “Not everybody has to explain the business side of it. Our job is to welcome him back in and get him going.”
No charges for Moeller
Suspended Browns offensive line coach Andy Moeller will not be charged for an alleged assault after a woman said he tried to strangle her.
Berea city prosecutor Jim Walters said in a statement he could not find proof “beyond a reasonable doubt.”
The woman making the charge against Moeller, a former Michigan player and coach, identified herself as his fiancee.
But Moeller still could face discipline from the NFL.
Moeller remains suspended indefinitely by the Browns, and an NFL spokesman said Wednesday the league is continuing to review the matter under its personal conduct policy.
