The Seahawks have added a quarterback, but not one to sub for Russell Wilson Sunday. Jake Heaps, who spent all preseason with the Seahawks before being cut, was re-signed to the practice squad Tuesday.
That suggests that the Seahawks will keep Wilson, who sprained his right ankle Sunday in the 12-10 win over the Dolphins, out of practice this week but expect him to be ready to go in Los Angeles against the Rams.
Trevone Boykin, an undrafted rookie, will remain the backup and share some reps in practice with Heaps, the former star from Sammamish’s Skyline High School.
Heaps scored generally good marks as the No. 3 QB, completing eight of 19 passes in the preseason for 64 yards, but wasn’t considered much of threat to supplant Boykin.
Practice squad members can practice and travel with the team, but are not part of the 53-man roster, from which 46 are active on game days.
