Madden (calf) returned to practice Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Madden has resided on injured reserve since early November and isn't eligible to play Sunday against the Cardinals. However, the Seahawks can activate one more player from IR this season and, if they make the playoffs, could bring Madden back to the 53-man roster as soon as next week.
Madden (calf) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Madden suffered the calf injury in Sunday's loss to the Redskins, and is done for the rest of the year as a result. Madden was the lone fullback on the team's roster this season, and it remains to be seen whether Seattle will move forward without one active.
Madden is dealing with a serious calf injury, per head coach Pete Carroll, Michael-Shawn Dugar of SeattlePI.com reports.
It's unclear how severe the injury is, but based on the comments from the Seahawks coach, the outlook isn't too bright at present. Seattle should make a decision on his short-term future in the coming days. If he is shut down temporarily, the team may look to bring in a new fullback.
The 24-year-old was coming off a season-high offensive snap count in Week 8, and two straight games with one target. He had seen most of his playing time on special teams, however.
