Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll believes linebacker Mychal Kendricks will play in 2019 despite his ongoing insider trading case, Carroll told reporters after mandatory minicamp on Tuesday.

Carroll added that Kendricks was "optimistic" about the case.

"There's not much that I can say that's going to be proper at this time," Carroll said. "Everything's moving along and he's real optimistic about how things are going. But really not too much to report. I can't tell you much more than that."
