Shark Bites

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll sounded serious about including RB Christine Michael in the offense after Saturday's preseason opener, calling him part of "a little one-two punch that we're excited about" with Thomas Rawls. Per ESPN.com, Carroll added about Michael: "He’s serious about the consistency. He’s taken great pride in the way he’s brought it day in and day out all throughout the offseason and into camp and all of that. And he’s an explosive, dynamic athlete. So we’re just going to keep going with him." Talent has never been the issue. Michael has reportedly had problems with doing the work and learning playbooks. If he's ready to buckle down, though, the 25-year-old makes for an interesting late flier in a run-heavy Seattle offense. Carroll also said that RB C.J. Prosise is expected to return this week and that "we'll see where he fits into it."

The Colts announced Wednesday that they have re-signed RB Christine Michael. The 27-year-old joined Indy last offseason but went on IR after suffering an injury in June minicamp. Michael's notable at the moment only because the Colts backfield looks far from set. Frank Gore is a free agent who doesn't look like he'll return. That leaves Marlon Mack, Robert Turbin, Josh Ferguson and Matt Jones with Michael at the moment. Indy should be adding to that group early in the upcoming NFL Draft.

The Colts placed RB Christine Michael on IR. He lasted just 2 weeks on the active roster. No word on Michael's injury, but at least we won't need to waste any more words on him this year. Robert Turbin and rookie Marlon Mack will battle for backup duties behind Frank Gore.

The Colts have signed RB Christine Michael. It's actually an intriguing landing spot for fantasy football's greatest enigma. Michael joins a backfield with 34-year-old Frank Gore, rookie Marlon Mack and journeyman Robert Turbin. He's simply failed too many times for us to get excited about him again.

The Packers have released RB Christine Michael. The writing was on the wall when Green Bay drafted 3 RBs over the weekend. Michael is still only 26 but has proven to be a fantasy football tease over the past 5 seasons. The Packers also released RB Don Jackson, leaving them with Ty Montgomery and rookies Jamaal Williams, Aaron Jones and Devante Mays.

The Packers have re-signed RB Christine Michael. We didn't hear of any other teams showing interest in the 26-year-old. Michael appeared in 8 games for Green Bay last season (including the playoffs), mustering just 3.7 yards per carry on 47 totes. The Packers' backfield currently sports just Michael, Ty Montgomery and Don Jackson -- so there's opportunity here. But Michael has mostly disappointed since entering the league in 2013. It seems unwise to bank on that trend changing in 2017.
