  • Godwin Igwebuike: Joins Seattle's practice squad

    The Seahawks signed Igwebuike to their practice squad Tuesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Seattle cut Igwebuike from its practice squad just two weeks ago, but he gets another chance to make an impression on Seahawks coaches. Barring some injuries on the active roster, though, it's unlikely the 28-year-old halfback will be elevated any time soon.

  • Godwin Igwebuike: Cut loose from practice squad

    The Seahawks cut Igwebuike from their practice squad Tuesday.

    Igwebuike joined Seattle's practice squad in late September after spending the 2022 offseason with the Lions. However, the Seahawks parted ways with the 212-pound running back on Tuesday, leaving him on the hunt for another team.

  • Godwin Igwebuike: Joins Seahawks

    Igwebuike was signed to Seattle's practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    Igwebuike spent last season and this year's training camp with the Lions, but he was unable to make the team. His addition to the practice squad comes as Travis Homer is dealing with bruised ribs, which he suffered in the Seahawks' 27-23 loss to the Falcons.

  • Godwin Igwebuike: Waived by Detroit

    The Lions waived Igwebuike on Tuesday.

    Earning his keep on special teams, Igwebuike appeared in every game for the Lions last year and rushed 18 times for 118 yards and a touchdown while securing seven of 10 targets for 60 yards. It is not immediately clear who Detroit plans to have at kick returner in his place.

  • Lions' Godwin Igwebuike: Finds end zone

    Igwebuike rushed seven times for 32 yards with one touchdown during Saturday's preseason win over the Colts.

    Igwebuike was the fourth running back to rotate in behind Craig Reynolds, Justin Jackson and Jermar Jefferson. The one advantage that the converted safety may have over these guys is Igwebuike's ability on special teams, but that may not be enough for a roster spot this year.

  • Lions' Godwin Igwebuike: Signs tender with Detroit

    Igwebuike signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Lions on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    Igwebuike will be back for his second season with Detroit and his fourth NFL season overall. The reserve running back appeared in all 17 games for the Lions last season, tallying 18 rushes for 118 yards and one touchdown while adding seven catches for 60 yards, but he made his biggest impact as the team's primary kick returner with 697 return yards. Igwebuike should reprise that role next season but will look to eliminate his turnovers after fumbling twice in 2021.

  • Lions' Godwin Igwebuike: Fails to catch pass on fake punt

    Igwebuike was targeted once but did not record a catch during Sunday's 37-30 win over Green Bay.

    Breaking a nine-game streak of seeing time on offense, Igwebuike didn't log any offensive snaps and his one opportunity to catch a pass came on a fake punt. The special-teamer will thus finish the 2021 campaign with 18 carries for 118 rushing yards and one touchdown along with seven catches on 10 targets for 60 receiving yards. While his stats may not jump off the page, it was largely a successful season for the converted safety who transitioned to running back during the offseason. Igwebuike will be an exclusive-rights free agent and has a good chance to stick around in Detroit given his usefulness on special teams.

  • Lions' Godwin Igwebuike: Little contribution to big win

    Igwebuike gained no yards and lost one fumble on two carries while catching two of two targets for 11 yards during Sunday's 30-12 win over the Cardinals.

    While Igwebuike (nine offensive snaps) saw more playing time than Jermar Jefferson (six), both watched as Craig Reynolds (42) reached triple-digit rushing yards on 26 carries. With Jamaal Williams now off the reserve/COVID-19 list and D'Andre Swift slated to test his shoulder in practice this week, Igwebuike's role only stands to diminish as the health of his teammates improve.
