The Seahawks signed running back B.J. Emmons to the practice squad on Wednesday, adding running back depth with Rashaad Penny currently dealing with a hamstring injury, and with Chris Carson out for the season with a neck injury.
Receiver Cade Johnson, an undrafted rookie out of South Dakota State, was released to make room on the practice squad.
Emmons, who initially signed with the Seahawks in May as an undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic, spent training camp with the Las Vegas Raiders, and rushed for 90 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries in three preseason games. In Las Vegas' third preseason game against the Seahawks, the 6-foot, 220-pound Emmons rushed for 45 yards and a touchdown on nine carries, including a 22-yard run.
Emmons gives the Seahawks two running backs on their practice squad along with fellow undrafted rookie Josh Johnson.
