Shark Bites

Seahawks S Jamal Adams (groin) and DE Benson Mayowa (ankle) are inactive for today's game against the 49ers. Adams' continued absence keeps Ryan Neal in the starting lineup. Neal is active after hitting the day questionable with a hamstring issue.

Seahawks RBs Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (hamstring) are inactive for today’s game against the 49ers. That leaves DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer in the backfield. If you’re looking to take a shot here, we’d try Dallas, who’s the healthier of the 2.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot) is “a true 50-50” for today's game against the 49ers. He's "expected to test how he feels in pre-game warmups," Schefter adds. Niners-Hawks doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET, so we won't know Carson's status until 3 pm. He'll be a risk/reward fantasy play if active. There have been no updates this morning on RB Carlos Hyde (hamstring) or RB Travis Homer (knee)

Seahawks S Jamal Adams returned to a limited practice Friday for the 1st time since suffering his groin injury back in Week 3. He's officially questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers and will reportedly be a game-time decision. A healthy Adams has showed a high fantasy ceiling, but it's tough to count on him here. Adams replacement Ryan Neal is also questionable after sustaining a hamstring injury during the practice week. He left Thursday's workout early but returned for another limited practice Friday. Also questionable is DE Benson Mayowa (ankle). We'll check the status of all 3 when inactives come out Sunday. Seattle has ruled out CB Shaq Griffin (concussion, hamstring), which will keep CB Tre Flowers in the lineup.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson is considered "week to week" with his mid-foot sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Carson is expected to "miss some time." We'll see exactly how long he'll be out, but expect him to at least miss this Sunday's game vs. the 49ers. That'll elevate RB Carlos Hyde to the top of the depth chart. Hyde handled 15 of 20 RB opportunities (carries + targets) after Carson left last night's game.

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta tweets, "My understanding is Chris Carson’s injury is not considered to be significant." That would at least seem to rule out a season-ending injury, but Carson might still miss games. We should know more by the end of the day. RB Carlos Hyde is still worth grabbing off waivers.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson suffered a mid-foot sprain in Sunday night's loss to the Cardinals, HC Pete Carroll said. Carson is scheduled for an MRI on Monday to get a better look at the injury. We should learn how much time he'll miss later today. Carlos Hyde stepped in as Seattle's clear lead back after Carson exited, handling 15 of 20 RB opportunities (carries + targets).

Seahawks RB Chris Carson left in the 1st half of Sunday night's game against the Cardinals with a foot injury. He's questionable to return.

9:10pm EDT 10/23/20

Seahawks S Jamal Adams (groin) will miss his 3rd straight game Sunday night against the Cardinals. Ryan Neal will start again in his place and looks like an IDP starter. He has defensed 4 passes including 2 INTs over 3 games: 2 starts and 35% of the snaps in the game Adams left early. Neal has also been a good bet for tackles, though he hasn't matched Adams' pass-rushing opportunities.

The Seahawks don't yet know whether S Jamal Adams will be ready to return for Sunday's game at Arizona. "It's a long season, and we'd love to have him back as soon as we can get him but we want him back when he's right and back for the long haul," HC Pete Carroll said Monday, according to Seahawks Wire. Adams missed the past 2 games with a groin injury, before Seattle's Week 6 bye. If he can't play in Week 7, then Ryan Neal would fill in once again. Neal has tallied 14 tackles (11 solo) over the past 2 games -- plus 3 passes defensed, including an INT. Neal would be in play for IDP lineups if Adams sits again.

HC Pete Carroll said Wednesday that S Jamal Adams will miss his 2nd straight game Sunday against Minnesota with the groin injury he suffered in Week 3. We'll see about the injuries affecting various other members of the secondary over the next couple of days.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters Monday that S Jamal Adams is not yet able to run following his groin injury late in the Week 3 win over Dallas, according to The Seattle Times. That doesn't necessarily mean Adams won't be ready by Sunday night. "I'm gonna hold out hope," Carroll added. "It's just too early in the week to know." We'll see about the safety's participation in practice this week. The Sunday night kickoff could further complicate the lineup decision for IDP owners, though, if Adams turns up questionable. It's also worth noting that Seattle has a Week 6 bye, which could factor into the decision on whether Adams plays in Week 5.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game in Miami to get checked for a concussion. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Carson returned for the start of the 2nd half.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (knee) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He was originally expected to miss a game or 2 but was able to practice all week, including a full workout on Friday. Carson comes with elevated risk but also carries RB1 upside in today’s plus matchup. RB Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is inactive, leaving Travis Homer as Seattle’s #2 RB.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (knee) is expected to play against the Dolphins today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. RB Carlos Hyde, meanwhile, is a game-time decision with a shoulder injury. Hyde isn't a fantasy option if Carson is active, but his injury could make Seattle less likely to limit Carson today. He comes with elevated risk after the knee injury, but Carson is climbing our Week 4 Rankings.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins after a limited week of practice. He’s obviously ahead of schedule in his recovery from that knee sprain, which was originally expected to cost him a game or 2. We’ll find out if Carson is suiting up vs. Miami by noon ET on Sunday. He’ll carry elevated risk if active but will also boast plenty of upside in this plus matchup. If Carson can’t go, Carlos Hyde figures to serve as Seattle’s lead back.

Update: HC Pete Carroll labeled Carson a game-time decision.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said on his radio show Friday morning that RB Chris Carson has "had an excellent week" coming off his 1st-degree knee sprain vs. Dallas, according to Stacy Jo Rost of 710 ESPN in Seattle. She added that Carson has "bounced right back." It sounds like Seattle is optimistic Carson will play against the Dolphins this Sunday. We'll see about his injury designation later today and track his status up until game time.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (knee) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It's an excellent sign just 3 days after he sprained his knee in the win over Dallas. Carson remains iffy for this weekend's game against the Dolphins, but it doesn't look like he'll be out for long.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Seahawks expect RB Chris Carson to miss 1-2 games with the knee sprain he suffered in the 4th quarter of Sunday's win over the Cowboys. We'll keep an eye on his progress leading up to Week 5. Assuming this holds, RB Carlos Hyde figures to be a starting option for fantasy lineups against the Dolphins in Week 4.

The Seahawks believe RB Chris Carson suffered merely a sprain to his left knee in the 4th quarter of Sunday's win over the Cowboys. He'll have a Monday MRI to confirm the injury. We'll see then whether Carson can make it back for Week 4, but it sounds like we should expect him to miss at least a game. Carlos Hyde would step into the starting role at Miami if Carson sits.

Update: NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that MRI confirmed just a "minor" sprain for Carson and that he has "a chance" to play against the Dolphins this Sunday.
