Report: Mychal Kendricks eligible to play for Seahawks in Arizona

With K.J. Wright still sidelined recovering from knee surgery, Kendricks will likely start at weakside linebacker.

Still awaiting a verdict after appealing a suspension, Seattle Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks will suit up against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

According to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, Kendricks will be eligible to play for the Seahawks as the NFL continues to work through his appeal after he pled guilty to insider trading charges earlier this month.

The Seahawks have been without star linebacker K.J. Wright for the first three weeks of the season and it remains unclear when he'll be able to return to action. Kendricks has given Seattle a lift as his replacement, recording nine tackles and 2.0 sacks during his first two games with the team.

On Monday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll couldn't answer whether or Kendricks would be available to play with a suspension looming.

With this latest update, Seattle can count on Kendricks contributing for at least one more week, providing a bit more time for Wright to get back to 100 percent before returning to the lineup.
