SEATTLE (WANE) – Bluffton High School grad D’Wayne Eskridge will miss the first six games after violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, according to a tweet from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on Friday.

The NFL announced the 6-game suspension for the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver on Friday. According to Eskridge’s agency, the suspension is related to an arrest in February 2023. The statement revealed Eskridge was arrested as a result of “an unfortunate incident with his child’s mother.”

“Dwayne entered into an agreement whereby the misdemeanor charges will be dismissed in 12 months when he completes domestic violence moral recognition therapy,” said Eskridge’s agency in a statement.

“We are aware of the situation involving Dee Eskridge and have followed league and law enforcement protocol,” the Seahawks said in a statement.

Eskridge is preparing for his third NFL season after being drafted in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Last year, Eskridge caught seven passes for 58 yards, while also rushing for 10 yards in 10 appearances.

Eskridge will be permitted to participate in all preseason games and practices but will have to leave the team before the start of the regular season. He will be permitted to return to the active roster on Monday, Oct. 23, following Seattle’s Week 7 game against Arizona.
