Date:'s Ian Rapoport reports Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (neck) "intends to play" in 2018.

That's "if he gets medically cleared." Coach Pete Carroll has said this is not a guarantee. It's hardly surprising Chancellor is going to give it a shot, as his $6.8 million salary fully guaranteed earlier this month. It could be a while before we gain clarity on Chancellor's health.
Feb 13 - 1:56 PM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor's 2018 salary is fully guaranteed after the team kept him on its roster past February 9.

This is an expected move from Seattle. Releasing Chancellor would have pushed his $9.6 million cap hit to $19.5 million in future charges and may have led to an injury grievance. Coach Pete Carroll said in early January that Chancellor might not play football again, but the Seahawks deemed him worth keeping for 2018 and perhaps beyond. Signed through 2020, Chancellor should return as Seattle's starting strong safety.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (neck) isn't expected to retire this offseason.

Chancellor could have trouble getting cleared from a career-threatening neck injury, but he's going to remain in Seattle for at least another season. The Seahawks owe Chancellor $12 million in guarantees and would increase his cap hit to $19.5 million from cutting him. 29-year-old Chancellor looks likely to open 2018 on the reserve/PUP list.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said SS Kam Chancellor (neck) will "have a hard time playing football again."

Carroll said the same of DE Cliff Avril. These comments almost seem to implore Chancellor to retire, but the coach said the decision is, obviously, up to the player. Chancellor is only 29.

Seahawks placed SS Kam Chancellor (neck) on injured reserve.

This has been expected for weeks but is now official. The Seahawks also waived RG Mark Glowinski and promoted LB Kache Palacio from the practice squad.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said SS Kam Chancellor (neck) is done for the season.

This was always the expectation, but Chancellor has yet to be placed on injured reserve. That will likely happen this week. Asked if Chancellor will play again, Carroll said, "It's up to him," highlighting the serious nature of the injury. Only 29, it would be a shame if Chancellor is not able to continue his career.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll hasn't ruled out SS Kam Chancellor (neck) returning this season.

This conflicts with earlier reports on Chancellor. Seattle is holding out hope Chancellor can make a late season return. Chancellor wouldn't be available until late in the playoffs if he lands on IR.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (neck) will miss the rest of the season.

That's back-to-back body blows to the Seattle secondary after Richard Sherman was lost for the season with a torn Achilles' suffered in Week 10 against Arizona. Chancellor was injured late in that same game. 29-year-old Chancellor was having one of his best seasons, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 5 safety, receiving strong marks for both his run defense and pass coverage. FS Earl Thomas is expected back this week. Bradley McDougald will likely replace Chancellor.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (neck) isn't expected to play in Week 11.

Chancellor hasn't practiced since suffering a stinger last Thursday night. His official status won't be known until Saturday, but he's trending toward not playing. The Seahawks are expected to get FS Earl Thomas back this week.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 04:39:00 PM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (stinger) is undergoing more tests.

Dishing out concrete injury information left and right on Thursday, coach Pete Carroll was more vague on Chancellor's status, suggesting he's legitimately questionable for Monday's game against the Falcons. A potential absence would come as the Seahawks get Earl Thomas back, and adjust to life without Richard Sherman.
Thu, Nov 16, 2017 04:04:00 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects SS Kam Chancellor (questionable, ankle) to play Sunday.

Chancellor missed most of the practice week, but should play his normal snaps. Bradley McDougald will start opposite Chancellor with Earl Thomas (hamstring) out.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (ankle) is questionable for Week 9 against Washington.

Chancellor didn't do much in practice this week with his ankle injury. With Earl Thomas out, the Seahawks could be down both their starting safeties. Delano Hill would start if Chancellor sits.
Fri, Nov 3, 2017 04:21:00 PM

Seahawks signed SS Kam Chancellor to a three-year, $36-million extension through 2020.

Both coach Pete Carroll and Chancellor hinted a deal was close on Monday. ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the contract includes $25 million in guaranteed money, and the new money average will make Chancellor the third-highest paid safety in the league. With Chancellor locked up, the Seahawks may turn their attention to FS Earl Thomas, who has two years left on his deal.
Tue, Aug 1, 2017 10:55:00 AM

Coach Pete Carroll and contract-year SS Kam Chancellor expressed optimism in Chancellor landing an extension.

"Yeah, I think it's been positive on both ends and hopefully it gets done any time now, but I feel like it's been positive on both ends," Chancellor said. Scheduled to make just over $7 million this season, 29-year-old Chancellor is likely seeking $10 million-plus annually. It sounds like it'll get done.
