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.
The Seahawks on Thursday reached a deal with RB Mike Davis. It's somewhat surprising after they elected not to tender him as a restricted free agent, but Davis re-joins an open backfield situation. He flashed a bit among 3 games of 15+ carries last year but should face plenty of competition for touches this season. That should include a healthier C.J. Prosise -- if we finally get that -- plus at least 1 guy not currently on the roster (draft or free agency).
Seahawks RB Mike Davis (ribs) put in a full practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. He's good to go for this weekend's game against the Rams. Davis has carried 31 times for 130 yards (4.2 YPC) and caught 5 balls for 36 more in his last 2 outings.
Seahawks RB Mike Davis (ribs) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. His injury is believed to be minor, and he's seemingly on track to play this weekend. Davis is in the RB2 mix against a Rams defense allowing 4.7 yards per carry to RBs.
Seahawks RB Mike Davis left in the 4th quarter of Sunday's loss to the Jaguars after taking a shot to the ribs. According to the Seattle Times, though, "indications were it was not overly serious." Before leaving, Davis enjoyed another successful outing. He carried 15 times for 66 yards against a run defense that has gotten a lot better since acquiring DT Marcell Dareus from the Bills mid-season. “I thought he looked great,’’ HC Pete Carroll said. “I thought he ran like crazy. This is the best rushing defense in the NFL. We had 100 yards at halftime. Mike was ripping, and he did a nice job with these guys and that means the guys up front did a nice job too." Seattle heads home to face the Rams in Week 15. As long as Davis' ribs are OK, he'll likely land in RB2 territory in our weekly rankings.
