Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Giants. Prosise would be tough to trust in Week 7 fantasy lineups but is worth owning in most PPR leagues. There's opportunity in Seattle's unsettled backfield.

Seahawks DE Michael Bennett suffered an injury to the plantar fascia in his right foot in Sunday's win over the Rams, according to the Tacoma News Tribune. Bennett left in the game in the 2nd quarter but returned in the 2nd half and played through the issue. HC Pete Carroll said Monday that Bennett is "really sore" and that he's "going to need these couple of weeks here," referring to the team's Week 6 bye. We'll see about Bennett's status on the other side, but players often play through even painful plantar fascia issues.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Rams. RB J.D. McKissic should handle most of the passing-down work but is just a PPR flier.

Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy is expected to start today's game against the Rams, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That doesn't necessarily mean Lacy will finish with more carries than RB Thomas Rawls, but it does make him the slightly better Week 5 fantasy bet.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) has been downgraded from doubtful to out for Sunday's game against the Rams. He didn't practice all week and isn't a lock to return for Week 6. RB J.D. McKissic is expected to handle passing-down work for Seattle this week.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Rams. That leaves the backfield to Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy and J.D. McKissic. Rawls and Lacy will handle early-down work, although the exact split remains unclear. McKissic will see passing-down action.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Pete Carroll said earlier this week that he expects Prosise back for Sunday's game against the Rams, but this obviously isn't an encouraging start. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field tomorrow.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that DE Cliff Avril will be out "a while" after suffering a neck injury Sunday night that is causing numbness down 1 of his arms. Frank Clark should see a spike in playing time as long as Avril is out and makes for a solid IDP option. Seattle will visit the Rams in Week 5 before a Week 6 bye.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson has been placed on IR. According to insider Danny O'Neil, he's been diagnosed with a fracture in his lower leg and a high-ankle sprain. It's possible Seattle designates him to return in 8+ weeks, but the more likely scenario is that Carson's rookie season is over. Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls are expected to handle lead-back duties for the 'Hawks going forward.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that he'd be "shocked" if RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) didn't return for Sunday's game against the Rams. Carroll is ever the optimist, but Prosise reportedly had a good pregame workout before last night's win over the Colts. We'll track his status this week. There's opportunity for Prosise after RB Chris Carson's broken ankle.

The Seahawks believe RB Chris Carson broke his ankle in Sunday night's win over the Colts, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's certainly what it looked like when it happened. Carson is scheduled for an MRI today to confirm the diagnosis and check for other damage. He'll miss an extended period of time and might be done for the season. Carson is droppable in redraft leagues. His absence leaves Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls to handle early-down work. Both guys are worth owning, but neither will be a safe Week 5 fantasy bet.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson left Sunday night's game against the Colts in the 4th quarter with what looked like a serious ankle injury. He got his left foot trapped underneath a defensive player and then got bent back over it by another tackler. Carson left the field on a cart with an air cast on the injured leg. We'll await an official diagnosis.

Seahawks DE Cliff Avril suffered a neck injury in the 1st half of Sunday night's game against the Colts. He has been ruled out for the night. We'll see about his status heading toward Week 5.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Colts. RB Thomas Rawls, meanwhile, is a healthy scratch. Chris Carson should dominate backfield touches, with only Eddie Lacy and J.D. McKissic behind him.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) is active for tonight's game against the Colts. The groin issue obviously adds risk, but he’s worth getting into fantasy lineups if you waited on him.

Per multiple reports, Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin expects to play Sunday night. Here's what HC Pete Carroll had to say after Friday's practice, per the Seattle Post-Intelligencer: "Well, we got to make sure all the way up to game time that he that he's feeling good enough to carry out a full game plan and all that. We're prepared, you know, if he's not able but he looked good today and he's very confident that he's got a chance but we will wait all the way 'til Sunday evening before we make that declaration." Fantasy owners will need to wait for his game status, which will come out at about 7 p.m. ET Sunday. Even if he goes, there's some risk that Seattle removes Baldwin if the game gets lopsided. (The Seahawks are 13.5-point favorites vs. the Colts.) Of course, Seattle will have likely scored plenty of points to get to that situation. Ultimately, you'll have to make your lineup call with all of those factors in mind. Baldwin looks like a boom/bust candidate for Week 4.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) returned to a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. He’s listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision for Sunday night’s meeting with the Colts, HC Pete Carroll said. The late kickoff puts fantasy owners in a tough spot. The best move is to add WRs Tyler Lockett or Paul Richardson. Both will be WR3s with upside if Baldwin is inactive.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Colts. He won’t play in that one and might miss multiple weeks. His absence should mean a few extra touches for RB Chris Carson.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) won't practice on Wednesday, HC Pete Carroll said. He's expected to test that groin on Friday. Baldwin's injury reportedly isn't serious, but he's certainly not a lock to be ready for Sunday night's game against the Colts.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll called RB C.J. Prosise's ankle injury "significant" on Wednesday. "We are concerned about it," Carroll added. It sure sounds like Prosise is looking at a lengthy absence. That should mean an expanded passing-game role for lead back Chris Carson.
