Seahawks RBs Alex Collins (groin) and Rashaad Penny (calf) are active for tonight's game vs. the Saints. Collins got in just 1 limited practice this week, so it's safe to assume he's not at 100% tonight. It's Penny's 1st game since Week 1. RBs DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer are also active for Seattle.

As expected, the Seahawks have activated RB Rashaad Penny from IR. That makes him available to play against the Saints tonight. We certainly expect him to factor into the backfield work. Penny would get an upside boost if Alex Collins turns up inactive. He's questionable with a groin injury, but HC Pete Carroll said after Saturday's practice that Collins "looked good today, so he's ready to go," according to the team website. We'd bet on Collins leading the backfield tonight after he performed surprisingly well at Pittsburgh.

Seahawks RB Alex Collins (groin) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Saints. He only got in a limited practice on Saturday, but HC Pete Carroll said he'll play on Monday. "He looked good today so he's ready to go," Carroll said Saturday. "We were planning on giving him a break on the first day anyway, we just gave him one more just to bounce back and he looked fine, so he'll be part of the rotation." That "rotation" figures to include RB Rashaad Penny, who's expected to be activated from IR for this game. It's a murky backfield for fantasy purposes this week.

Seahawks RB Alex Collins (groin) remained sidelined for Friday's practice. He's trending toward missing Monday night's game vs. the Saints, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

So much for Seahawks RB Alex Collins practicing on Thursday, as HC Pete Carroll said. Collins did not practice, according to the team's official injury report. He's listed with a groin, rather than the previously reported hip and glute injuries. Collins' availability for Monday night's game vs. the Saints is uncertain. We're still waiting to see if RB Rashaad Penny (calf) will be activated for that one.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said RB Alex Collins (hip, glute) will practice on Thursday. That presumably puts him on track to play vs. the Saints on Monday night, but we'll keep an eye on him over the next few days. Collins has handled 35 carries and 4 targets over the last 2 weeks but might need to contend with the return of RB Rashaad Penny on Monday

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that RB Alex Collins (hip, glute) has a chance to play against the Saints this weekend. That's not exactly a ringing endorsement from the usually optimistic Carroll. We'll monitor Collins' status throughout this week. We'll also keep an eye on RB Rashaad Penny (calf), who's eligible to come off IR this week. DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer are Seattle's other RBs right now.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said after Sunday night's loss to the Steelers that RB Alex Collins missed the OT portion with hip and glute injuries, according to John Boyle of the team website. Carroll said he didn't yet know whether the issues would affect Collins' Week 7 status. We'll keep an eye on him as well as the rest of Seattle's backfield this week. Rashaad Penny is eligible to come off IR at any point. Chris Carson, however, will miss at least 2 more games for his neck issue.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson has been placed on IR with his neck injury. He's out for at least the next 3 games. Seattle has a Week 9 bye, so Week 10 is the earliest we could see Carson back on the field. It's unclear if he'll even be ready then. Carson is certainly droppable if you're hard up for a roster spot. Alex Collins will serve as the Seahawks' lead back the next 3 weeks vs. the Steelers, Saints and Jaguars.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. the Steelers. HC Pete Carroll was hoping to get Carson back at practice this week, but it didn’t happen. His status for Week 7 and beyond is uncertain. Alex Collins gets another game as Seattle’s lead back and is a fine volume bet on Sunday night. But consider him just a RB3 or flex with Geno Smith under center and facing Pittsburgh’s 4th-ranked RB defense.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) remained sidelined on Thursday. It's bad news after HC Pete Carroll said yesterday that he expected Carson to practice today. At this point, he seems unlikely to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday night, giving RB Alex Collins another start. We'll get another update on Carson tomorrow.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Friday that RB Chris Carson's status for Week 6 is uncertain due to a lingering neck injury. “This is a day-to-day thing with Chris. We have to see how he responds. The short week did not help him at all," Carroll said. "He’s got an old injury that you can see (in exams). It’s kind of, I don’t know if it’s chronic, but it occasionally pops up. It hasn’t been an issue in the past. He didn’t get hit, and that’s how he got hurt. It’s a condition he’s got probably from weightlifting and all of the stuff he’s done over the years. It could have been something a long time ago. It’s just flared up some, so we’re being real careful with him. He was too uncomfortable to play.” We'll keep an eye on Carson when the Seahawks get back to work next week. RB Alex Collins operated as Seattle's lead back with Carson out on Thursday night. Note that RB Rashaad Penny (calf) is eligible to come off IR in Week 7.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Rams. Carson "had a neck issue that flared up recently and he’s pretty sore. The short week obviously doesn’t help," ESPN's Brady Henderson tweeted. RBs Alex Collins, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas are active for Seattle tonight. Collins figures to handle most of the rushing work, with Homer and possibly Dallas mixing in on passing downs.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Rams. He didn't practice on Tuesday or Wednesday, so he seems genuinely iffy for this one. Carson's absence would likely mean a committee backfield comprised of Alex Collins, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas. We'll get Carson's game status around 7 pm ET on Thursday.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson did not practice on Tuesday and is on the injury report with a neck. We don't have any other details, but it's worth noting that Carson played just 45% of Seattle's offensive snaps last week. If he can't play vs. the Rams on Thursday, it'd likely be Alex Collins as the Seahawks' lead back. We'll get another update on Carson tomorrow.
