Tyler Lockett Injury Updates

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (back) put in a full practice on Friday and isn’t listed on the final injury report. So he should be ready for his usual role against a Steelers defense that tends to struggle against slot receivers. Lockett is a strong bounce-back candidate after a quiet opener.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (back) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That seemingly puts him on track to play against the Steelers this weekend, although it does look like he's dealing with a legitimate injury. Let's see if Lockett can put in a full workout on Friday.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett did not practice on Wednesday and is listed on the injury report with a back. It's the 1st we've heard of the issue. It's possible that this was more of a rest day for Lockett, but we'll need to monitor the situation. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said WR David Moore will be out "a while" with a shoulder injury suffered in Thursday's practice. Carroll added that Moore won't be ready for Week 1 but gave no timetable beyond that. With WR D.K. Metcalf recovering from knee surgery, Jaron Brown is in line to open the season as Seattle's #2 WR. WR Tyler Lockett figures to dominate targets early on.

The Seahawks have agreed to a 1-year deal with free-agent WR Brandon Marshall, ESPN reports. The move comes well after Marshall visited Seattle, but he enters a depth chart with opportunity available. Doug Baldwin is the only incumbent at the position who has surpassed 71 targets in a season. We'll see what Marshall has left after a lackluster pre-injury stint with the Giants. He caught just 18 of 33 targets and averaged 8.6 yards per catch over 5 games. His Seahawks deal could reportedly be worth up to $2 million with incentives, less per-year money than Seattle gave Jaron Brown. Unless Marshall proves totally cooked this summer, though, his arrival complicates the target picture behind Baldwin. Tyler Lockett's later-round ADP will make him a solid upside bet. We'll see where others settle on the depth chart and ADP charts over the next couple of months.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett will miss the rest of the season after breaking his leg/ankle in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals. It was a nasty-looking injury and will require surgery, HC Pete Carroll confirmed afterward. We should get a more concrete rehab timeline in the coming days. Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson will serve as Seattle's top 3 WRs the rest of the way.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett (knee) put in a full practice on Wednesday. HC Pete Carroll said afterward that his 2nd-year wideout "looks really good." Lockett was playing through a torn PCL in his previous 2 games, totaling just 1 catch for 13 yards. He posted a 4-99 line in the Week 2 game in which he suffered that injury, though, and has that type of weekly upside if he's healthy. Consider Lockett a risk/reward WR3 for this Sunday's plus matchup against the Falcons' 22nd-ranked WR defense.

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett injured his knee in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Rams. He's officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Update: Lockett returned in the 2nd half.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that WR Tyler Lockett is dealing with a hip injury that has his Week 7 status uncertain, according to the Seattle Times. Lockett has yet to become a factor on offense, so his status won't impact most fantasy leagues. But you should have a replacement available if you've been using the rookie in return-yardage leagues.
