WR Josh Gordon back with Seahawks; TE Greg Olsen could play

Josh Gordon is officially again a Seahawk.

The seventh-year veteran receiver was removed from the commissioner’s exempt list Monday and added to the team’s active 53-player roster with coach Pete Carroll saying the expectation is that he will play Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

Carroll also said veteran tight end Greg Olsen “is returning this week’’ after having practiced last week.

Fantasy Impact: 

Carroll said the team is planning the week like Gordon has a chance to contribute. For fantasy purposes, he's probably a bit of a risk especially since it's the finals for most leagues, but the story said Gordon could resume his role as the team's WR3. That would mean passing Moore in the pecking order. Moore has played about 46% of the snaps this year and is having a career year as far as receptions go. Gordon has not played since last Dec 15 at Carolina.

As for Olsen, he practiced last week but wasn't activated so one can assume he was close. Carroll said via the story, assuming Olsen makes it through the practice week that “he’ll be back in, ready to go.’’ Olsen suffered a plantar fascia injury on Nov. 19 against Arizona and was then placed on injured reserve.
