Shark Bites

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny tore his left ACL in Sunday night's loss to the Rams, HC Pete Carroll announced Monday. That obviously ends Penny's season, and the timing could challenge his readiness for the start of 2020. We'll see about his progress over the summer. The injury makes RB Chris Carson an even clearer workhorse for upside matchups with Carolina and Arizona the next 2 weeks. C.J. Prosise was the only other Seattle back to play against the Rams, and he garnered just 1 touch.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny hurt his left knee in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Rams and was quickly ruled out. That usually suggests a serious injury. We'll update Penny's status when we learn more. His absence turns Chris Carson back into an every-down back.

Seahawks DE Jadeveon Clowney (core) is active for tonight's game against the Rams. DE Ezekiel Ansah (neck) is inactive. Use Clowney as you normally would in your IDP lineups.

Seahawks DE Jadeveon Clowney (core) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. He finished the week with a full practice, though, after limited workouts the previous 2 days. And Clowney played through the issue last week. Expect him to play against the Rams.

Seahawks DE Jadeveon Clowney (core) is active for tonight's game against the Vikings after missing Week 13. LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) and DT Jarran Reed (ankle) are also active after hitting the day questionable. All are ready for IDP use if you waited for them.

Seahawks DE Jadeveon Clowney (core), LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) and DT Jarran Reed (ankle) are questionable for Monday night's game against the Vikings. Clowney put in limited workouts Friday and Saturday. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Clowney practiced "very lightly" Saturday but that he "should be fine" and "ready to go" for Monday night. Clowney said he'd leave his playing time up to coaches but that he's "looking to play, not just be held back" when he hits the field. Clowney seems worth the risk if you're weighing him vs. another D-lineman for IDP lineups. Kendricks sat out Saturday after being limited Friday and doesn't look worth waiting for. Reed put in limited practices Friday and Saturday after sitting out Thursday. He's not a strong option to begin with but seems to be trending in the right direction if you need him.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll suggested Monday that RB Rashaad Penny will remain involved going forward. He took on an increased role in the win over the Eagles and capitalized with 129 yards and a score on 14 carries. "Chris [Carson] is a guy who is a big part of our team and we’ll do everything we can (for him)," Carroll said. "Competition is a beautiful thing and no reason not to get (Penny) back in there next week. We'll get those guys hammering away." Note that after Carson's lost fumble on Sunday -- his 4th of the season -- Penny out-carried Carson 5 to 0. We'll look for more clues on what this backfield will look like going forward, but we'll probably just be guessing how carries will be split in next Monday night's game against the Vikings.

Seahawks DT Jarran Reed left Sunday's win over the Eagles with an ankle injury. We'll see about the severity this week. Reed gets an extra day to heal up, at least, with Seattle playing Minnesota on Monday night.

Seahawks DE Jadeveon Clowney (hip) is inactive for today's game against the Eagles. That's a big blow for a team defense that already didn't look like a strong play. There's no significant upside IDP play in Clowney's wake.

Seahawks DE Jadeveon Clowney is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Clowney missed the full week of practice and spent Friday away from the team getting treatment for the hip injury that kept him out. ESPN reports that Clowney will be a game-time decision for the game. We'll check his status Sunday morning, but it sounds like you should make alternate plans for your IDP lineup.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play against the Eagles on Sunday and should be ready for his usual role.

The Seahawks ended up listing WR Tyler Lockett (shin) as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. It's good news after an earlier report that Lockett wasn't expected to practice. He seemingly has a good shot to play against the Eagles this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status Thursday afternoon.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) didn't practice on Wednesday, although he did participate in the walkthrough. HC Pete Carroll said that he expects Lockett to play against the Eagles this weekend -- but we wouldn't expect any different from him. We'll get another update on Lockett tomorrow.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (leg) has been released from the hospital and is flying back to Seattle on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. "Expectation is, despite his leg contusion, Lockett will be ready to play vs. Philly" following the Week 11 bye, Schefter adds. We'll keep an eye on Lockett's practice participation next week, but it sounds like we'll have him for Week 12 fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett didn't need surgery on his badly bruised lower leg and "should be OK." He's dealing with major swelling and spent the night in a Bay Area hospital. Lockett gets a well-timed Week 11 bye, and it sounds like he has a shot to play against the Eagles in Week 12.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett injured his lower left leg late in Monday night's game against the 49ers and missed overtime. HC Pete Carroll revealed afterwards that Lockett was hospitalized for a "really bad" contusion. “It will be OK but it’s a pretty severe situation for right now," Carroll said. “I think there was a lot of swelling ... We’re ahead of it so we should be in good shape.” We'll keep a close eye on this, but Lockett has a Week 11 bye to heal up. His absence could push WR Josh Gordon into an expanded role.

6:11pm EST 11/11/19

Seahawks WR Josh Gordon is active for tonight's game against the 49ers. We'll be keeping a close eye on how big a role he plays in his team debut, but he's nothing more than a DFS flier tonight.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said there's a "good chance" WR Josh Gordon plays against the 49ers on Monday night. "He did really well," Carroll said of Gordon's first week of practice with the team. "He was very impressive in terms of picking stuff up, studying overtime. He fit in really well. He's a really good athlete. You can really tell that he's got a lot of potential to be a big-time player, so it was fun to see him on the practice field. He did a nice job." We'll see exactly how big a role Gordon plays after joining the team a little over a week ago, but he shouldn't be in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Seahawks S Quandre Diggs (hamstring) and DL Quinton Jefferson (oblique) are doubtful for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Diggs' continued absence plus S Tedric Thompson landing on IR likely means starting posts for Marquise Blair and Bradley McDougald for the upside matchup with the Bucs. McDougald returned from injury last week but played sparingly. Blair looks like the better IDP bet between the 2.

The Seahawks have claimed WR Josh Gordon off waivers. It's an interesting landing spot, to say the least. We'll see when Gordon is healthy enough and comfortable enough in Seattle's offense to play, but he's worth a stash in deeper fantasy leagues.
