Seahawks RB Alex Collins is inactive for today's game vs. the Bears. He came off the COVID list this week but wasn't listed on the final injury report, so this looks like a healthy scratch. RBs Rashaad Penny, DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer are active for Seattle today.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett did not make it back from the COVID list in time to face the Rams tonight. He, RB Alex Collins and CB D.J. Reed are the biggest names who failed to test out and will miss the game. Seattle has elevated RB Josh Johnson from the practice squad to fill a roster spot. D.K. Metcalf should see increased target share, with Freddie Swain and Dee Eskridge expected to join him as the top 3 wideouts.

The Seahawks on Sunday placed RB Travis Homer on the COVID list. He joins Alex Collins there. It's not clear how significant a role either guy would have in this week's game, given the fluidity of Seattle's RB depth chart in recent weeks. But missing 2 components can only help Rashaad Penny, if you're planning to use him.

The Seahawks on Thursday placed WR Tyler Lockett and RB Alex Collins on the COVID list. That almost certainly knocks out both players for Sunday's game against the Rams. Rookie Dee Eskridge and Freddie Swain look like the next 2 WRs up, but each is obviously a giant step down from Lockett. His absence figures to boost D.K. Metcalf's target outlook. Collins' absence takes 1 challenger away from Rashaad Penny in a backfield that remains a little crowded (with Adrian Peterson potentially returning from injury).

Seahawks RB Adrian Peterson will not play against the Texans on Sunday due to a lower-back injury, HC Pete Carroll said. Peterson never appeared on this week's injury report because he's on the practice squad. With RB Travis Homer out, Seattle is down to RBs Rashaad Penny, Alex Collins and DeeJay Dallas. Carroll said Penny will be a "big part" of the game plan this week. He looks like the best fantasy bet here, but this is still a backfield to try to avoid.

Seahawks RB Travis Homer (calf, hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. RB Alex Collins (abdomen) isn’t listed on the final injury report, so he should play after missing last week. But it’s completely unclear how snaps and touches will be divvied between Collins, Adrian Peterson, Rashaad Penny and DeeJay Dallas. Despite the plus matchup, you’re better off avoiding this backfield.

Seahawks RB Alex Collins (abdomen) is inactive for today’s game vs. the 49ers. RBs Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) are active after being listed as questionable. RBs Adrian Peterson and DeeJay Dallas are also active. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said this morning that RB Adrian Peterson is expected to get the "bulk of the carries,” but he’s no better than a low-end RB3 play.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Seahawks will be activating RB Adrian Peterson ahead of Sunday's game against the 49ers. That indicates the veteran will be playing less than a week after joining Seattle's practice squad. Peterson, of course, already washed out with a needy Titans backfield this season and now joins a running game that has struggled in general. Adding a member to this lackluster committee only makes the whole situation more of an avoid for fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RBs Alex Collins (abdomen), Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) are listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. Collins was limited in practice all week, while Homer and Penny got in multiple full practices. All 3 should be available this weekend. We'll see if Seattle activates RB Adrian Peterson from the practice squad for Sunday. This is a backfield to avoid in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He should be available for this weekend's game vs. the 49ers just to muddy up Seattle's backfield a bit more. It's a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RBs Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) are out for Monday night's game vs. Washington. HC Pete Carroll said Saturday that rookie RB Josh Johnson might be promoted from the practice squad, but RBs Alex Collins and DeeJay Dallas will handle the majority of the backfield work.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson is expected to have season-ending neck surgery, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's no real surprise given the progression of his season so far. It leaves Alex Collins as the primary ball-carrier. He's been dealing with a groin injury but carries no game status into the weekend. Travis Homer claimed the backfield pass-catching lead at Green Bay in Week 10 but had only totaled 3 targets over his previous 4 games.
