Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise left Sunday's game against the Eagles at halftime with a shoulder injury. His return is questionable. We'll keep an eye on his status. Thomas Rawls, meanwhile, will take over the backfield.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is not listed on the final Week 11 injury report and will return for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. He’s expected to play a limited role in his 1st action since Week 2, so Rawls is a shaky fantasy start. RB C.J. Prosise is the heavy favorite to lead Seattle's backfield in touches.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise will remain the team's starter "for the immediate future," according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. RB Thomas Rawls is expected back from his fractured fibula this week but will be "eased back into action." Per Mortensen, Seattle's release of RB Christine Michael earlier this week was "a statement" about Prosise. The team obviously likes what it's seen from its rookie. Prosise is a better Week 11 fantasy bet than Rawls. And if he continues playing like he did last week, he should stick as the lead back the rest of the way.

The Seahawks have released RB Christine Michael. After a stretch of 4 straight games with 16+ carries, Michael totaled just 20 over his last 3. He's sitting on a mediocre 4.0 yards per carry for the season, but Seattle's offensive line is more to blame than Michael. We're guessing that there's more to this story, which wouldn't be a surprise considering Michael's history. His release is a sure sign that RB Thomas Rawls is on track to return for Sunday's game against the Eagles. We'll see exactly how the backfield touches are divvied between Rawls and C.J. Prosise.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is "ready to go" and on track to play against the Eagles this weekend. He's been out since suffering a hairline fracture to his fibula back in Week 2. Rawls averaged just 1.3 yards per carry on 19 attempts before going down. And he's now returning to a crowded backfield with Christine Michael and the ascending C.J. Prosise. Rawls is worth stashing in most fantasy leagues, but we can't be counting on him to re-emerge as an asset.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Friday that RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is still "a couple of weeks away" from returning. "We won't know until he starts to do the workload and all of that," Carroll added. "But now we've got to get him in shape again and get him right. And we'll take our time doing that so that once he's back, he'll hopefully be coming back for good." It sounds like Christine Michael is safe as Seattle's feature back for at least another couple of games.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that the “goal” is for RB Thomas Raws to resume running this week. Rawls, of course, is recovering from a hairline fracture in his leg. Carroll added that he hopes to have the rehabbing runner back for Week 9 vs. Buffalo. He certainly won’t return to a workhorse role, but Rawls' presence will take some upside away from Christine Michael.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is expected to miss "another month, or approximately a month," GM John Schneider said on Sunday morning. That'd put Rawls back on the field around Week 8 or 9. Seattle has a bye next week, so Rawls might end up missing just 3 or 4 more games. But he might return as the backup to Christine Michael. Rawls is only worth stashing in leagues of 12+ teams.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls is dealing with a hairline fracture to his fibula, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The injury was originally deemed a contusion and a strain, but it's obviously more serious than that. Rapoport says Rawls is expected to miss "a few weeks." RB Christine Michael might have full control of the backfield by then.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is inactive for today’s game against the 49ers. So is RB C.J. Prosise (hand). RB Christine Michael gets the start and should flirt with 20 touches in a plus matchup.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) will not play against the 49ers later today. RB C.J. Prosise (hand) is also expected to be inactive. "Big work for Christine Michael," Schefter says. Giddy up!

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the 49ers after missing practice all week. HC Pete Carroll suggested Friday morning that Rawls could be a game-time decision, but the "doubtful" tag suggests that he's a long shot. That leaves the backfield to Christine Michael in a great spot vs. a 49ers defense that gave up 100 yards to Fozzy Whittaker last week.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. The ever-optimistic Pete Carroll expects Rawls to play this weekend, but that certainly doesn't look like a lock. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field tomorrow.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Wednesday that RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is "on track" to play against the 49ers this weekend. Carroll described his injury as a "slight strain on the side of his leg." We'll see exactly how Seattle divvies work between Rawls and Christine Michael after Michael was the better back for the 2nd straight game last week. Consider Rawls a risky RB3 or flex, despite the plus matchup.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll was happy with RB Christine Michael's Week 2 performance, despite a costly late-game fumble. "He hit it really well," Carroll said. "He looks like he shot out of a cannon. He’s really quick. He’s just getting going. I think he’s really going to get better and more efficient. He had the unfortunate turnover, but other than that he really hit it really well. He must be averaging 5 yards a carry or something. First two games, that’s pretty good." Michael is in fact averaging exactly 5 yards per carry. The rest of Seattle's RBs are at 1.05, including a 1.3 mark for Thomas Rawls. Michael is even beating Rawls in yards after contact, 2.32 to 1.11. With Rawls now dealing with a leg injury, it's time for Seattle to see what Michael can do as the lead back.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said after Sunday's loss to the Rams that x-rays on RB Thomas Rawls' leg came back negative. Carroll labeled the injury a “leg contusion.” That sounds minor, but we’ll keep an eye on Rawls throughout the coming week.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls suffered a leg injury during Sunday's game against the Rams. The TV broadcast showed him limping back to the locker room with trainers. He's officially questionable to return.
