Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (ankle) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Vikings. He wasn't on the injury report on Thursday or Friday -- then he was added on Saturday but listed as a full participant in practice. We'll look for an update on the rookie's status, but he shouldn't be in your Week 14 fantasy plans.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll labeled WR Doug Baldwin (hip) a game-time decision for Monday night's tilt with the Vikings. Carroll also said that Baldwin's hip injury is related to his previous groin issue. The late kickoff obviously puts fantasy owners in a tough spot. You need to have a viable alternative if you're hoping to use Baldwin -- and the only one potentially available would be David Moore. Even if Baldwin ends up active, he'll be a risky WR3.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (finger) put in a full practice on Friday. He’ll play against the Vikings on Monday night after dislocating a finger last week. Carson is a low-end RB2 in the tough matchup.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) has yet to practice this week. He's been sitting out a bunch of practices this year but hasn't missed a game since Week 3. We'll see if he gets on the field on Saturday, but we're still expecting Baldwin to play against the Vikings on Monday night.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll confirmed on Monday that RB Chris Carson (finger) "should be able to play" against the Vikings on Sunday night. "He came out fine in the game other than his finger, and it should be OK," Carroll said. Old Pete is notoriously optimistic when it comes to injuries, but Carson should be able to play through the dislocated finger. He'll be a lower-end RB2 vs. a Minnesota defense allowing just 3.4 yards per carry over the past 4 games.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson injured his finger in the 4th quarter of Sunday’s game against the 49ers. He headed back to the locker room for x-rays. We’ll pass along an update on Carson when we get one. His absence would leave Seattle’s backfield to Rashaad Penny and Mike Davis.

Update: HC Pete Carroll said after the game that Carson dislocated his index finger. He got it stitched up and is expected to be fine.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) isn’t listed on the final Week 13 injury report. He’s fine to get into fantasy lineups as a high-floor WR3. Baldwin has caught 5+ balls in 3 straight.

The Seahawks have deemed LB K.J. Wright doubtful for Thursday night's game against the Packers. Wright had to leave Sunday's loss to the Rams early because of his bothersome knee and hasn't practiced this week. Jacob Martin got the extra snaps against the Rams and looks like the next guy in. There should be no Seattle LB other than Bobby Wagner in your IDP plans, though.

Seahawks OC Brian Schottenheimer said Tuesday that RB Chris Carson will start Thursday night's game against the Packers. That means absolutely nothing other than Carson being on the field for Seattle's first offensive snap. But Carson was operating as the clear lead ball-carrier before missing most of Week 9 and all of Week 10 with a hip injury. Consider him the best bet for carries on Thursday night, but RBs Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny also figure to remain plenty involved.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is on track to return for Thursday night's game against the Packers, HC Pete Carroll said. Carson has been operating as Seattle's lead back but will now need to contend with rookie Rashaad Penny's breakout Week 10 -- in addition to Mike Davis. The crowd leaves all 3 of these guys as risk/reward RB3s for Week 11.

Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and LB K.J. Wright (knee) are active for today's game against the Rams. McDougald played through the issue last week but left the game early. He remains a risky IDP option. Wright has been playing through questionable tags since returning from his August knee surgery and is fine for IDP usage.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is inactive for today’s game against the Rams. Mike Davis should serve as Seattle’s lead back and is an upside RB2 in fantasy lineups. RBs Rashaad Penny and C.J. Prosise are also active for the ‘Hawks.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is not expected to play against the Rams later today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Schefter adds that a final decision won't be made until pregame warmups. We'll get Carson's official status around 3 pm ET, but he should obviously be on fantasy benches. RB Mike Davis should serve as Seattle's lead back today and is a solid RB2 in fantasy lineups.

Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and LB K.J. Wright (knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Both guys entered Week 9 questionable as well. McDougald left the game early and then missed Wednesday and Thursday practices. He returned for a limited workout Friday but makes for a high-risk IDP option in a negative matchup for DB scoring. Wright saw normal playing time in Week 9. He missed Thursday's practice between limited workouts Wednesday and Friday. We'll check the status on both Sunday afternoon.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams. He didn't practice all week, but HC Pete Carroll suggested Friday that Carson will be a game-time decision. We’ll look for another update on Sunday morning, but we might not find out his official status until 3 pm ET. Mike Davis will serve as Seattle’s lead back if Carson can’t play.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) didn't practice on Wednesday. Don't expect him to practice much, if at all, this week after aggravating that hip issue on Sunday. The best-case scenario probably has him as a game-time decision for this weekend's tilt with the Rams. Mike Davis will serve as Seattle's lead back if Carson can't go.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll described RB Chris Carson as "sore" after Sunday's loss to the Chargers. “I talked to Chris and it was about like it was last week,” Carroll said of Carson's troublesome hip. “He’s sore, but he was sore last week and he made it through. We’ll have to wait and see and just go day to day with him. We’ll take care of him earlier in the week and see how he rounds out later in the week.” It sounds like Carson didn't suffer any new structural damage and has a shot to play against the Rams on Sunday. We'll monitor his status throughout the week. Mike Davis will serve as Seattle's lead back if Carson is sidelined.

Seahawks S Bradley McDougald left Sunday's loss to the Chargers midway through because of the knee issues that rendered him questionable for the game. HC Pete Carroll told the Seattle Times afterward that the knee "just tightened up again and he couldn't finish." McDougald returned for 1 fourth-quarter snap when fellow starting safety Tedric Thompson briefly left the game. We'll see about McDougald's status heading into Week 10's visit to the Rams.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson aggravated his hip injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Chargers and is doubtful to return. He carried 8 times for 40 yards before exiting. Mike Davis will operate as Seattle's lead back the rest of the way.

Seahawks S Bradley McDougald (knee) and LB K.J. Wright (knee) are active for today’s game against the Chargers. Each entered the day questionable but looks OK for normal IDP usage
