Seahawks safety Earl Thomas should be back for Monday night

With space on the active roster, the team has officially signed cornerback Byron Maxwell and running back Mike Davis. He has just a six-week timetable but he'll be forced to miss at least eight after being placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury. Sherman, a four-time Pro Bowler, will end his 2017-18 campaign with 35 total tackles and two interceptions.

The 29-year-old has gone through a workout with Seattle on Monday morning prior to re-signing with the team.

Carroll also told the radio station that Sherman is scheduled to have surgery on his ruptured Achilles this week.

Davis was a fourth-round pick by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2015 NFL Draft. In the preseason, he led the Seahawks with 106 yards rushing and caught five passes for 41 yards.

He has rushed for only 23 yards and added 87 in the passing game this season.
