Seahawks HC Pete Carroll plans on deploying a committee backfield this season. "We like playing multiple guys, and we don’t have any problem with that at all," Carroll said. "I’ve said it to you a million times. I’m fine going with who is hot. But also, we have to find a way to keep our guys healthy. That’s why the rotation is so important, so we don’t overwork them, particularly early in the year, so we can keep the good momentum building." Seattle spent the 41st overall pick of this year's draft on RB Kenneth Walker. But, prior to that, they gave RB Rashaad Penny a 1-year, $5.75 million contract with a little more than $5 million guaranteed. Penny, of course, closed 2021 with 671 rushing yards over the final 5 games. Seattle also still has RBs Chris Carson, DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer on the roster. We'll see how the backfield shakes out this summer.

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.

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.

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 (neck) won't play vs. the Packers on Sunday, HC Pete Carroll said. Carson returned to practice this week but hasn't been cleared to play by doctors. If and when he'll get that clearance is uncertain. Alex Collins should continue to operate as Seattle's lead back this weekend, but Rashaad Penny, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas all mixed in last time we saw the Seahawks.

The Seahawks expect RB Alex Collins (groin) to play today against the Jaguars, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Officially questionable, Collins figures to share touches with Rashaad Penny and Travis Homer. We'd be on him leading that group, but Collins isn't a high-end fantasy option this week.

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.

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 (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.
