The Seahawks don’t plan to re-sign free agent Eddie Lacy.
This is expected after Lacy finished the final weeks of 2017 as a healthy scratch. Coming off a down year with a history of conditioning issues, Lacy is going to struggle for guaranteed money this offseason. The Seahawks have a healthy Chris Carson returning and look likely to add a running back in the draft. Feb 17 - 5:15 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy are "going to take the load" at running back moving forward.

Carroll said Rawls has been "flying around" at practice, which is typical word-choice from Carroll. Unfortunately, with Chris Carson (ankle) likely done for the year, the Seahawks have nowhere else to turn. Rawls and Lacy are both highly injury-prone themselves, and this figures to be a feeling-out of sorts as Seattle tries to find the hot hand in the backfield. Neither is a trustworthy play for Week 5 against the Rams, but owners may be forced to use both as FLEX options.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll seemed to hint Thomas Rawls will be the lead back with Chris Carson (ankle) sidelined.

Rawls was a healthy scratch Week 4, and Eddie Lacy stepped up with 52 yards on 11 carries. Carroll said Lacy "looked good" and needs "more carries to get going," but his comments on Rawls suggests he sees him as the starter. "With Chris being banged up, we’re so fortunate to have Thomas ready to jump back out there," Carroll said. "We’re just lucky that we have a guy like that who’s ready to go and is healthy and all that." With J.D. McKissic breaking out and C.J. Prosise likely back this week, this backfield looks like a headache.

Thomas Rawls is listed as the starting running back on the Seahawks' Week 1 depth chart.

Rawls' Week 1 availability is uncertain as he battles an ankle injury, but it's confirmation he outplayed Eddie Lacy this summer. With third-down back C.J. Prosise and seventh-rounder Chris Carson factoring in, Seattle's backfield is a tough early-season forecast, but Rawls appears to have earned the benefit of the doubt. Going by Lacy's preseason, the ex-Packer won't run away with the job even if Rawls misses the opener.

Speaking Monday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was noncommittal on Thomas Rawls' (ankle) Week 1 status.

Carroll said he expects to find out Rawls' status during the week, and that C.J. Prosise, who also has an ankle injury, is "a little ahead" of Rawls in his recovery. It's beginning to look like Eddie Lacy has backed into a Week 1 start against his former team Green Bay. Prosise will handle passing downs.

Thomas Rawls will miss Friday's preseason game with a "minor" ankle issue.

Eddie Lacy will start in his place. Rawls has been running ahead of Lacy with the first-team offense for over a week, but this gives Lacy a big opportunity to move back out in front. Rawls has earned universally positive reviews this summer, but any ankle issue is a concern after the catastrophic injury that ended Rawls' 2015.

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta reports Thomas Rawls "appears to be the clear No. 1 back" right now.

Rawls split first-team reps with Eddie Lacy in a team scrimmage earlier this week. Lacy has reportedly been working "exclusively with the backups" since. We wouldn't read much into this, as Lacy is getting acclimated to a new offense and coming off ankle surgery. Lacy remains the favorite to start Week 1.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia reports Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy split first-team reps during a mock game on Monday.

Notably, Rawls was first through the rotation, although Lacy is still working his way back from ankle surgery. Kapadia notes Lacy was signed to be the "feature back," but Rawls will "clearly ... get the chance to compete" if he is able to stay healthy. Rawls' ADP is climbing, but he is still a good dart throw in the double-digit rounds.
