Seattle tight end Gerald Everett remains out on the reserve/COVID-19 list while the host Seahawks elevated wide receiver Phillip Dorsett to the active roster for Thursday night’s game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Dorsett’s promotion from the practice squad fills the roster spot of rookie receiver Dee Eskridge, who was put on injured reserve Thursday with a concussion. Eskridge missed the past three games.

Everett was placed on the COVID list last week, missing Sunday’s Week 4 win against San Francisco. He started the first three games for the Seahawks (2-2), catching eight passes for 77 yards and a touchdown.

Running back Chris Carson (neck) remains a game-time decision. The team will evaluate him during pregame warmups to make a determination. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Carson’s neck has “been bothering him all week.”

Alex Collins would get the start against the Rams (3-1) if Carson is unable to go. Collins rushed 10 times for 46 yards and a score and caught two passes for 34 yards against the 49ers.

Dorsett started the season in Jacksonville but was released by the Jags in late September after appearing in one game. The 2015 first-round pick has 124 career catches for 1,634 yards and 11 touchdowns in 72 games (15 starts) for the Indianapolis Colts (2015-16), New England Patriots (2017-19) and Jaguars.
