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.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) is out for Sunday night’s game against the Seahawks. That again makes TE Tyler Higbee a spot-start option. He played 91% of Los Angeles’ offensive snaps and garnered an 18% target share with Everett out last week.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. If he misses Sunday night's game against the Seahawks, TE Tyler Higbee will remain on the spot-start radar after his massive Week 13.

Jets HC Adam Gase said Monday that S Jamal Adams "is a legit week-to-week" with his sprained left ankle, according to the Washington Post. "I am going to lean on him a lot too as far as how he feels," Gase said. "We want to make sure that he is good to go before we put him back out there." Adams seems likely to miss Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The Jets then play on Thursday night in Week 15. We'll watch for updates on his status later this week.

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.

Jets S Jamal Adams hurt his left foot in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Adams didn't leave the game, but he said afterward that he "couldn't perform" like himself and that he "was in a lot of pain," according to the New York Daily News. We'll see if the injury endangers Adams' Week 14 availability.

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.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. That turns TE Tyler Higbee into an upside fantasy play vs. the league’s worst TE defense.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Wednesday. He appears to be in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Cardinals. Everett's absence would turn TE Tyler Higbee into a legitimate fantasy option in the plus matchup.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (knee) was held out of Wednesday's practice. He missed a chunk of Monday night's loss to the Ravens but was able to eventually return. So we're tentatively expecting him to play against the Cardinals this weekend but will continue to update his status.

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 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.

Rams TE Gerald Everett isn't listed on the Week 12 injury report after dealing with a wrist injury last week. He played a season-low 26% of the offensive snaps in that Bears game -- but we're assuming that was due to a combination of the wrist and Los Angeles' run-heavy game plan. Everett averaged 8.2 targets over his previous 6 games and is back on the TE1 radar with the wrist issue behind him.

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.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (wrist) is active for tonight’s game against the Bears. He was limited in practice all week, but we’ve heard nothing to suggest that he won’t play his usual role tonight. Everett should get a boost in volume with WRs Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks out.

Rams TE Gerald Everett (wrist) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Bears. HC Sean McVay said Friday that he’s “optimistic” that Everett will be available. The late kickoff, of course, complicates the situation for fantasy owners. We’ll look for an update on Everett Sunday morning.

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.
