Seahawks TE Nick Vannett (back) is inactive for today’s game against the Raiders. With TE Will Dissly also sidelined, Seattle is down to Darrell Daniels at TE.

Seahawks TE Nick Vannett (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He only got in a limited practice on Thursday. We'd look elsewhere for a Week 6 spot starter.

Seahawks DE Frank Clark is active for today's game against the Rams. He dealt with an apparently nasty bout of food poisoning this week but appears ready to go. It's not a great spot for his IDP value anyway, and Clark tends to be a boom/bust, sack-reliant lineman.

Seahawks DE Frank Clark is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams because of what HC Pete Carroll called food poisoning during a Friday morning radio interview. We'll see if Clark's well enough to play Sunday.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He figures to return as Seattle’s lead back, but HC Pete Carroll said earlier this week that RB Mike Davis has earned a role going forward. That makes Carson just a RB3 or flex play vs. the Rams.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) put in a limited practice on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session. HC Pete Carroll expects Carson to play this weekend, and he's now trending in the right direction. We'll get another update on Carson tomorrow.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Pete Carroll said earlier in the day that he expected Carson back for this weekend's game against the Rams, but we wouldn't consider that a lock. The missed practice is especially notable after Carson got in 3 limited practices last week. We'll get another update on Thursday.

The league has suspended Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks indefinitely because of the insider-trading case against him. We'll see how long that winds up lasting, but it means you can go ahead and drop him in IDP leagues. Unfortunately, LB K.J. Wright's knee still doesn't seem likely to be ready for Week 5. With just 1 more game between that and the Week 7 bye, we're likely looking at Week 8 for the earliest Wright availability.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that Mike Davis has earned a spot in the team's RB "rotation." That'd be alongside Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. Unless Carson misses more time with his hip injury, this will be a backfield to avoid in Week 5.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll expects RB Chris Carson (hip) to return for Sunday's game against the Rams. Carroll is always optimistic about his injured players, but Carson was a surprising Week 4 inactive after putting 3 limited practices. We'll monitor his status this week. It'll be interesting to see how Seattle divvies backfield work after RB Mike Davis ripped off 101 yards and 2 scores in yesterday's win over the Cardinals.

Seahawks TE Will Dissly tore his patellar tendon in Sunday's game against the Cardinals and is done for the year, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Dissly flashed some surprising big-play ability in his abbreviated rookie season and is worth stashing in dynasty leagues. His absence leaves Nick Vannett as Seattle's top TE.

Seahawks S Earl Thomas left the field on a cart against the Cardinals on Sunday after suffering a left leg injury. We'll await further details.

Update: Thomas fractured his left leg and will miss the rest of the season.

Seahawks TE Will Dissly was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Cardinals with a knee injury. That leaves Nick Vannett as Seattle's top TE. We'll look for an update on Dissly's situation.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He’s been sidelined since suffering a Grade 2 torn MCL in the season opener. Baldwin missed all of August with trouble with the opposite knee. It’s unclear if he’s ready for a full workload today, making him a risk/reward fantasy play.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is inactive for today's game game against the Cardinals. That leaves rookie Rashaad Penny as Seattle’s likely lead back — and a RB3 or flex in fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He was limited in practice all week, but we've heard nothing to suggest he's in danger of missing this one. We'll let you know if that changes. For now, keep Carson penciled into fantasy lineups as a volume-based RB2.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (abdomen) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He's played just 25 snaps through 3 weeks and is off the fantasy radar.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Friday that WR Doug Baldwin (knee) will play against the Cardinals this weekend. "He looked great [in practice]," Carroll said. "He was explosive. The suddenness that we have come to love in his play was there. He caught the ball great." Baldwin has been sidelined since Week 1 and was limited in practice this week, so it's unclear if he'll be a full-go on Sunday. Consider him a risk/reward WR3 for Week 4. Baldwin's return is a nice boost for QB Russell Wilson.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said WR Doug Baldwin (knee) will practice on Wednesday and has a chance to play against the Cardinals this weekend. "He looks really good," Carroll added. Baldwin has been sidelined since suffering a Grade 2 torn ACL in the season opener. Seattle desperately needs him back to add some juice to this passing game. The 'Hawks are sitting 22nd in passing yards through 3 weeks.

Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks (ankle) is active for today's game against the Cowboys. He entered the day questionable but should be ready for his expected role. We'll see exactly what that means after he played 82% of the snaps last week in his 1st game with the team. Kendricks is a low-level IDP option at best.
