Shark Bites

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle injury. We hadn't seen any previous reports of the ailment, but that might explain his significant decrease in playing time against the Browns. Ansah doesn't look like a good IDP bet against Baltimore -- even if he shows up active.

Seahawks TE Will Dissly will undergo surgery to repair his torn Achilles on Thursday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Dissly is done for 2019 but "should be good to go for 2020," per Rapoport. Returning from an Achilles injury is a tough task -- but Dissly came back this year from a torn patellar tendon, an even tougher injury. We'll track his progress this offseason.

Seahawks TE Will Dissly injured his left leg in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game in Cleveland and had to be helped off the field by a couple of trainers. Dissly missed most of last season with a right knee injury. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Update: The injury is to Dissly's Achilles and he's been ruled out for the game. This is likely a season-ender.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. C.J. Prosise will step back in as Seattle's #2 RB -- but Chris Carson should be in for another monster workload.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (shoulder) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was added on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. He's safe to keep in fantasy lineups for Sunday's game against the Browns. RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is listed as questionable, despite putting in full practices all week. We'll check on his status Sunday morning.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson was added to the injury report on Thursday as limited with a shoulder. ESPN's Brady Henderson notes that the team made Carson available to the media, "something they typically don't do with players whose statuses are in serious question." Carson should be fine for Sunday's game against the Browns, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) isn't listed on the final Week 5 injury report and will return for Thursday night's game against the Rams. Penny played 30% of Seattle's offensive snaps and averaged 8 carries over the first 2 games of the season. We're expecting him to return to a similar role behind Chris Carson on Thursday.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that he expects RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) to return for Thursday night's game against the Rams. Penny was listed as a full participant on Monday's practice report -- although Seattle didn't actually practice. We'll see what he's able to do when the team actually does hit the field on Tuesday. Penny will return to a #2 role behind Chris Carson, who bounced back in a big way in Week 4.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. That again leaves the backfield to Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Cardinals. He sat out Wednesday's practice, was limited on Thursday and a full participant on Friday. HC Pete Carroll said Friday afternoon that Penny has a "good chance" to play vs. Arizona. He's not much of a Week 4 fantasy option, but his return would add risk to Chris Carson's outlook.

Seahawks DT Quinton Jefferson should be in a good spot for IDP upside this week against the Cardinals, but he's looking unlikely to be ready for the matchup. Jefferson missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with a hip injury. We'll see if anything changes Friday but have already moved him down the Week 4 IDP rankings.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to play against the Cardinals this weekend. We'll learn more about Penny's status tomorrow.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He's still just 5 days removed from hurting his hammy in practice and seems iffy for this weekend's game against the Cardinals. We'll see if he's able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll threw his support behind RB Chris Carson on Monday. "Because we do believe in him, we're going to continue to show him that," Carroll said. Carson lost his 3rd fumble of the season in yesterday's loss to the Saints, but it sounds like Seattle is sticking with him as the lead back. It's worth noting that Carson fumbled just 3 times on 323 touches across his first 2 NFL seasons.

Seahawks CB Tre Flowers is active for today's game against the Saints. He entered the day questionable with an ankle issue that popped up during the week, limiting his Thursday practice and sidelining him Friday. Flowers carries risk but is available as a low-level IDP. Rookie DE L.J. Collier is a bit of a surprise inactive. He wouldn't be an IDP target even if he were playing, but the 1st-round pick returned from his preseason ankle sprain to play limited snaps last week and then didn't appear on the injury report this week. Collier's likely still working back to full strength overall, while Seattle needed the spot on the active roster. Notably, DE Ezekiel Ansah will make his Seahawks debut after missing the 1st 2 games. He put in full practices all week and finished off the injury report.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny is inactive for today’s game against the Saints. He garnered one-third of the team’s RB carries through 2 games, so his absence is a nice boost for RB Chris Carson.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny is not expected to play against the Saints today after injuring his hamstring in Friday's practice, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Schefter adds that the injury isn't serious, so Penny seemingly has a good shot to be back for Week 4. But his absence today is a nice boost for RB Chris Carson. Penny handled 33% of Seattle's RB carries through 2 weeks. Most of those figure to go to Carson. C.J. Prosise will serve as the Seahawks' #2 RB but isn't a fantasy option.

Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny is questionable for this weekend's game against the Saints after injuring his hamstring in Friday's practice. His absence would give RB Chris Carson's volume projection a boost and leave C.J. Prosise as Seattle's #2 RB. We'll look for an update on Penny's status Sunday morning. Seahawks-Saints doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET.

Seahawks WR David Moore (shoulder) is set to make his 2019 debut on Sunday against the Saints. He figures to slide in as Seattle’s #3 WR and isn’t a fantasy option. We don’t expect Moore to cut into WR D.K. Metcalf’s snaps.

Seahawks DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is inactive for the 2nd straight game. HC Pete Carroll expressed optimism (what else is new?) about Ansah's chances of playing early in the week. We'd expect that Ansah will return for Week 3. Rookie DE L.J. Collier, meanwhile, will make his NFL debut today against the Steelers. He had been out through most of the summer with an ankle injury. The Seattle edge picture is still developing.
