Carroll: Prosise "out a while" | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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 (abdomen) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He's played just 25 snaps through 3 weeks and is off the fantasy radar.

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 RB C.J. Prosise re-injured his ankle again in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Cardinals. He's been struggling with this ankle since late-September and handled just 3 carries tonight before exiting. Prosise isn't worth rostering outside of deep fantasy leagues.

Update: HC Pete Carroll said after the game that Prosise actually injured his other ankle.
