Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor intends to play in 2018, according to a published report.
Chancellor, who suffered a season-ending neck injury in November, expects to be back with the Seahawks providing he receives medical clearance, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported.
The 29-year-old Chancellor's $6.8 million salary for 2018 was guaranteed on Friday, the trigger day for the team to make any moves on contracts. He signed a three-year extension in August.
There has been speculation about Chancellor's future after he posted an image on Instagram that appeared to reflect he was walking away from the team.
Following the season, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that Chancellor and defensive end Cliff Avril would have a "hard time" in coming back from their neck injuries.
Chancellor's eighth NFL season came to an end when he hurt his neck on the final possession of a 22-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 9. He was placed on injured reserve later that month.
The four-time Pro Bowl selection had 49 tackles and a forced fumble in nine games last season. He has 12 career interceptions.
