C.J. Prosise Injury Updates

Seahawks RB Chris Carson injured his hip in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Cardinals and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one. RB C.J. Prosise is done for the day with an arm injury. That leaves Travis Homer as Seattle's only healthy RB.

Update: Carson has been ruled out.

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 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 J.D. McKissic suffered a Jones Fracture in his foot in practice, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Schefter adds that McKissic is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks, but we've seen this injury cause long-term complications. McKissic was battling C.J. Prosise for a pass-catching role in Seattle's backfield but obviously won't be an early-season factor now.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise missed Thursday night's preseason opener with what HC Pete Carroll called "a little hip injury." There's no such thing as a little injury for Prosise, who's missed 21 of 32 games over the past 2 years with a variety of ailments. Prosise had reportedly been operating as Seattle's primary 3rd-down back in training camp, but he needs to get and stay healthy if he wants to win that role. He's just a late-round flier in PPR drafts right now.

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta considers Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise the "leader for the role of being the two-minute, third-down back." Prosise has received lots of snaps with the 1st-team offense early in training camp, according to Condotta. Injuries have wrecked his first 2 NFL seasons, but Prosise has averaged a big 12.8 yards per catch on 23 receptions in 11 outings. He played both RB and WR at Notre Dame, totaling 55 grabs across his final 2 seasons. There's plenty of pass-catching ability here. Prosise is still no more than a late-round flier in PPR drafts right now. But he could certainly be a thorn in the side of RB Rashaad Penny's fantasy value.

The Seahawks have placed RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) on IR. He was hobbled by a right ankle injury for most of the season and then hurt his left ankle in last Thursday night's game. Prosise has now appeared in just 11 of 32 games over his first 2 NFL seasons. His dynasty value has taken a significant hit. J.D. McKissic will serve as Seattle's passing-down back the rest of the way.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll called RB C.J. Prosise's ankle injury "significant" on Wednesday. "We are concerned about it," Carroll added. It sure sounds like Prosise is looking at a lengthy absence. That should mean an expanded passing-game role for lead back Chris Carson.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise is not expected to play against the Colts on Sunday night and is considered "week-to-week" with an ankle injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We don't have any other details on the injury right now. Rapoport says Prosise "had tests" on the ankle earlier this week. Regardless, it's another ailment for a guy who's compiling a lengthy injury history. It's worth noting that Prosise suffered a high-ankle sprain in his final college season in 2015, although it's unclear if this is at all related.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll make his 2017 debut against the 49ers on Sunday. Rawls' return further crowds a backfield that also includes Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise and Eddie Lacy. Avoid the situation in Week 2 fantasy lineups if possible.

The Seahawks signed RB Eddie Lacy to a 1-year deal worth $5.55 million ($3 million guaranteed). Lacy appeared in just 5 games last year, but he proved efficient with 5.1 YPC and strong after-contact marks on 71 attempts. His season ended in November following right ankle surgery. Just like his weight, the ankle will be worth monitoring throughout the offseason. This move certainly takes some appeal from Thomas Rawls, who dealt with injuries of his own in 2016. C.J. Prosise -- yet another RB with durability questions -- should slide into a prominent pass catching role.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll confirmed Monday that RB C.J. Prosise fractured his scapula in Sunday's win over the Eagles. He doesn't need surgery, but Carroll said the team won't have a clear timetable for his return "for weeks." Colts WR Donte Moncrief missed 5 weeks with this injury earlier this season. Prosise is a major long shot to play again during the regular season and can be safely dropped in redraft leagues. Seattle is left with only rookie Alex Collins behind Thomas Rawls now. Rawls is in for some big workloads down the stretch.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo hears that Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise could miss "upward of eight weeks" with his scapula injury. There are only 6 weeks left in the regular season, so it sounds like the rookie could only potentially return for the playoffs. We should get confirmation on Prosise's timetable for tomorrow, but he figures to be droppable in all redraft leagues.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll admitted after Sunday's win over the Eagles that RB C.J. Prosise is "going to be out for a while" with a scapula injury. "There's a chance he comes back this year," Carroll added. It sounds like the rookie is dealing with a broken bone, but we should learn more tomorrow. RB Thomas Rawls looked good in his return today and appears poised to take back over as Seattle's lead back.

Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise left Sunday's game against the Eagles at halftime with a shoulder injury. His return is questionable. We'll keep an eye on his status. Thomas Rawls, meanwhile, will take over the backfield.

Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (leg) is not listed on the final Week 11 injury report and will return for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. He’s expected to play a limited role in his 1st action since Week 2, so Rawls is a shaky fantasy start. RB C.J. Prosise is the heavy favorite to lead Seattle's backfield in touches.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Seahawks RB Christine Michael is expected to play tonight against the Patriots. He joined the injury report Friday with a hamstring issue. Seattle has intimated that RB C.J. Prosise might find more work. RB Thomas Rawls is nearing a return from injury. But Michael remains the top RB play for Seattle until the team shows us someone else can get to double-digit carries. The New England matchup is poor for Michael's fantasy value this week.

Seahawks RB Christine Michael was added to Friday's injury report as limited with a hamstring issue. He's questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Patriots. We'll hopefully get an update on his status on Sunday morning. But Michael was already a shaky Week 10 fantasy option as a big road underdog against a tough New England run defense. RB C.J. Prosise could be in for a bunch of action.

Bills HC Rex Ryan said Friday that RB LeSean McCoy looked "full go" in practice Friday and said he believes McCoy is "close" to being ready for Monday night's game in Seattle. This seems to be trending toward McCoy being active for the game. He'll be risky until we see a full game back from his hamstring injury. Obviously, the current RB situation for many owners -- including this week's 6-team bye -- means you might have to go ahead and start McCoy without that assurance. We'll watch for his game status later today and keep an eye out for any further updates throughout the weekend. If you're waiting on McCoy and don't have Mike Gillislee as insurance, then Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise could be an available fill-in.

The Seahawks have signed RB C.J. Spiller. The 29-year-old was cut by the Saints after being a healthy scratch in Week 1. He averaged just 3.7 yards per carry and 6.9 yards per catch over the previous 2 seasons. Spiller should step in as Seattle's passing-down back but won't see more than a handful of touches behind Christine Michael. And he'll need to hold off C.J. Prosise once the rookie gets over his hand injury.
