Shark Bites for Seattle Seahawks 2020 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Shark Bites

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 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 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 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.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah missed practice Wednesday because of the shoulder injury that has kept him out since the opener. Ansah put in limited practices each of the past 2 weeks and hit the weekend "questionable" before ultimately being inactive. The missed practice to begin this week, however, might indicate a setback in his recovery. We'll watch for further details ahead of an upside sack matchup with the Cowboys.

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.

Seahawks LB K.J. Wright will miss his 3rd straight game in Week 3 following knee surgery. Replacement Mychal Kendricks is questionable with an ankle issue. He popped onto the injury report after limited practices Thursday and Friday. We'll see about Kendricks' status Sunday. MLB Bobby Wagner's return to health makes him the Seattle LB to use.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner said he'll be ready to play Sunday against the Cowboys. Wagner missed Monday night's loss in Chicago with a groin injury despite playing every defensive snap in Week 1. We'll obviously watch to confirm that he'll be good to go, but IDP owners should expect to have the stud LB back in fantasy football lineups for Week 3.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is inactive for today's game against the 49ers. Ansah entered the day questionable after limited practices all week. You shouldn't have been planning to use the Lions team defense anyway.

Texans OLB/DE Jadeveon Clowney (back) will not play today against the Titans, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That takes 1 of the best players off the Houston defense, but Tennessee's multitude of offensive injuries -- plus the Texans' remaining talent -- still leaves plenty of fantasy upside for Week 2. Houston remains 1 of the strongest team-defense options for the week.

Update: Clowney is officially inactive.

Panthers TE Greg Olsen (foot) is putting off surgery and hoping to return in 4-5 weeks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's an aggressive timetable, especially after Olsen missed 8 weeks with the same injury last year. He figures to be at a high risk of re-injury if he does come back so soon. We'll continue to monitor his progress. Olsen is only worth stashing in leagues with deep benches or an IR spot.

The Seahawks have ruled MLB Bobby Wagner out for Monday night's game at Chicago. He missed practice all week with a groin injury. Weak-side LB K.J. Wright (ankle) will also miss his 2nd straight game. That leaves a potential tackle bonanza for rookie LB Shaquem Griffin. It also creates an attractive rushing setup for Bears RB Jordan Howard.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers with the shoulder injury that knocked him out of Week 1 early. Ansah put in limited practices all week, though, and appears to be trending toward playing. We'll see about his status Sunday afternoon, ahead of the 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner and OLB K.J. Wright did not practice Friday because of injuries. Wright missed Week 1 following a preseason knee procedure. Wagner has a groin issue, despite playing every snap in the Week 1 loss to the Broncos. We'll see about their status following Saturday's practice, ahead of the Monday night game in Chicago.

The MRI on the shoulder of Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah revealed no significant injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ansah left Monday night's loss to the Jets early, but it doesn't sound like he'll miss much more time -- if any. Ansah even put in a limited practice Wednesday. We'll keep an eye on his status heading into Sunday's visit to San Francisco.

The Panthers announced that TE Greg Olsen re-broke his right foot and is considered "month-to-month," although he surprisingly isn't having surgery. Olsen missed 9 total games with the same injury last year -- 8 to start and then 1 more after aggravating the issue. Expect him to be out at least that long this time around. Olsen is droppable in redraft leagues. His absence leaves 4th-round rookie Ian Thomas as Carolina's primary pass-catching TE. The Indiana product boasts a 91st percentile SPARQ score and posted a 3-37-1 line this preseason. He's worth an add in TE-premium leagues like the FFPC. WR Devin Funchess and RB Christian McCaffrey should also see more targets with Olsen sidelined.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah left Monday night's opener against the Jets in the 1st half with a shoulder injury. He's officially questionable to return. Ansah dealt with shoulder trouble each of the past 2 seasons and had shoulder surgery following his 2013 rookie campaign. We'll see how significant this latest issue is.
