SEATTLE – Seahawks defensive end L.J. Collier was activated off of Seattle’s injured reserve on Wednesday, and cornerback Tre Brown and running back Travis Homer both were designated to return to practice.

Collier, who has an elbow injury, has been out since Seattle’s second preseason game against the Chicago Bears. The 2019 first-round pick out of TCU was designated to return to practice earlier this month but suffered a thumb injury which set him back.

In Collier’s three seasons as a Seahawk, he has three sacks, 33 tackles and three passes defensed in 37 career games.

Homer missed the previous four games with a rib injury that he suffered in Seattle’s loss to Atlanta on Sept. 25. Brown returns from the team’s physically unable to perform list after a knee injury from last season. Both Brown and Homer will not count toward Seattle’s 53-man roster until they are added to the active roster.

Brown had elevated himself into a starting role with the Seahawks last season before his knee injury. In five games, the then-rookie out of Oklahoma had 10 total tackles and one pass defended.

Homer is a former sixth-round pick out of Miami who had 16 yards on four carries in three games this season. The fourth-year veteran also has four catches for 33 yards this year.
