Seahawks DE Darrell Taylor is inactive for tonight's game against the Saints. He was a game-time decision with the neck injury that had him leaving last Sunday night's game in Pittsburgh on a stretcher. Taylor seems like he should make it back for Seattle's Week 8 contest.

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 DE Darrell Taylor is officially questionable for Monday night’s game against the Saints with the neck injury that found him leaving Week 6 on a stretcher. Here’s what HC Pete Carroll had to say Saturday about Taylor’s outlook: “Let's just wait until we get all the way gametime and see if everything works out OK. I think he's doing really well, he's anxious to play and excited about that. I'll be surprised if he doesn't, but we'll just make sure.” Having the last kickoff of the week makes it tough to wait on a game-time decision. Let’s hope we get some indication Sunday on how Taylor’s neck responded to Saturday’s largest workload of the week.

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 QB Russell Wilson is "progressing well" in his recovery from finger surgery, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Wilson is scheduled to have the pin removed from the finger on Friday and has a shot to be back for Week 10's game vs. the Packers, per Garafolo. We'll continue to keep an eye on Wilson's status.

Seahawks DE Darrell Taylor missed practice Friday with his neck issue. HC Pete Carroll said he expects Taylor to play Monday night against the Saints, though, according to Brent Stecker of ESPN Seattle. We'll check Taylor's status after Saturday's practice.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (calf) was designated to return from IR on Friday. He's now eligible to play vs. the Saints on Monday night -- and it sounds like he will. “I’m ready to go. I’m revved up. I’m excited,” Penny said. “I’m still young. I’m fresh. And I’m ready to go, and now’s the chance for me to show it.” OC Shane Waldron, meanwhile, said Penny returned from his calf injury in "great shape." He might step right into a significant role on Monday night with RB Alex Collins dealing with a groin injury.

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 Rashaad Penny (calf) will be "back to full speed" this week, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. That sure makes it sound like Penny will at least be in the mix to play against the Saints on Monday night. We'll see about his official activation from IR and his practice participation throughout the week. Injuries to Chris Carson and Alex Collins present opportunity and further muddy the backfield outlook 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 DE Darrell Taylor left the field on a stretcher in the 4th quarter of Sunday night's game at Pittsburgh. He was immobilized after an injury to the hear or neck. NBC reported that he took an ambulance to the hospital but was moving his extremities on the way. We'll see about the diagnosis and return timeline for a guy who has been Seattle's top pass rusher this season.

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.

The Seahawks placed QB Russell Wilson (finger) on IR. That knocks him out for at least the next 3 games. Seattle then has a Week 9 bye, so Week 10 is the earliest Wilson could return. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport recently called a Week 10 return the "best-case scenario" for Wilson. QB Geno Smith is in line to start the next 3 games vs. Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Jacksonville.

Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf (foot) is not listed on the final injury report. He was limited on Wednesday, sidelined on Thursday and then limited again on Friday. Metcalf should be ready to play his usual role in Sunday night's game vs. the Steelers.

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 WR D.K. Metcalf (foot) did not practice on Thursday. He's been on the injury report with this foot since Week 4 but had put in 6 straight limited practices. It's unclear if he suffered a setback or just got Thursday off. We should learn more tomorrow.
