Coach Pete Carroll said Saturday that Eskridge sustained a "legit sprain" in his right knee during Thursday's preseason game against the Vikings, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Eskridge suffered the injury while covering a kickoff Thursday. Carroll added that his recovery "could be a few weeks," which, if it comes to pass, will keep him out for the Seahawks' final two exhibitions. Eskridge also faces a six-game suspension to start the season for violating the personal conduct policy, so Seattle may not have his services again until Week 8 against the Browns.

Eskridge suffered an apparent right leg injury during the opening kickoff of Thursday's preseason contest against the Vikings, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.
Operating on kick coverage, Eskridge remained on the turf at the end of the play before making his way to the blue sideline tent, per Brady Henderson of ESPN.com. The nature of Eskridge's injury is unknown, but it could be another setback after the NFL handed him a six-game suspension last week for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.
Coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Eskridge (suspension) is expected to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Vikings, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Carroll noted that Eskridge was tending to "a little something" Tuesday that held him out of drills, but he was back on the practice field one day later. While Eskridge is eligible to play during exhibition season, he'll be serving a six-game suspension to begin the upcoming campaign due to a violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy. As a result, his first possible game action will arrive Sunday, Oct. 29 versus the Browns.
Eskridge has been suspended six games for a violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
The 2021 second-round pick can still practice this summer and play in preseason games but won't be eligible to make his regular-season debut until Oct. 29 against the Browns. It probably doesn't change much for the Seattle offense, as Eskridge is no better than fourth on a depth chart that includes WRs DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Jaxon Smith-Njigba.
Eskridge will compete for a depth spot heading into the 2023 season after the Seahawks selected Jaxon Smith-Njigba in the first round of this year's draft, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Even if the Seahawks didn't add to their receiver room, Eskridge wasn't a lock for a starting role, let alone a roster spot. The 2021 second-round pick has played just 20 games through his first two seasons with only 17 catches for 122 yards and a touchdown to show for it. Cade Johnson and Dareke Young will be his primary competition for the No. 4 spot in 2023.
Eskridge (hand) was designated to return from IR on Tuesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Eskridge could return to the field Saturday against the 49ers, but he'll need to be added to the 53-man roster first. However, he was able to return to the practice field Tuesday, which will be the first step before he can return to action.
