Kendricks played weakside linebacker for the Eagles, who drafted him in the second round in 2012 one spot before Seattle chose Bobby Wagner. He pleaded guilty last week and now faces upwards of 25 years in prison.
"Seattle not likely to waste any time: Kendricks expected to play Monday night vs. Bears", Schefter tweeted Thursday evening.
Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to the charges.
Kendricks, who used tips to acquire more than $1.2 million, has a sentencing hearing now scheduled for January 24, which is four days after the AFC and NFC Championship games. Seattle's starting weakside linebacker, K.J. Wright, remains sidelined after having arthroscopic knee surgery two weeks ago and it's unclear when he will return.

Kendricks, 27, is a six-year National Football League veteran who, prior to Cleveland, had spent his entire career with the Philadelphia Eagles. But after some struggles for Griffin in the early going against Denver, Seattle then also used Austin Calitro there, typically playing Calitro on early downs and Griffin on third downs.
"He's running today", coach Pete Carroll said of Wright. It's just first game, trying to figure it out. "He felt pretty good". According to USA attorney William M. McSwain, Kendricks was able to profit due to the fact that he was receiving insider tips from TV writer Damilare Sonoiki.
He had a team-high eight tackles with the Eagles in last season's NFC Championship game against the Vikings and four in Philadelphia's Super Bowl 52 victory.
