Speaking Thursday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he's been impressed with C.J. Prosise's offseason, but that he's competing for a roster spot.
"C.J. has really jumped out," Carroll said. "He’s looked good now. He knows he’s battling (for a roster spot)." Prosise has long tantalized but has not been able to stay on the field. First-rounder Rashaad Penny should be entrenched on early downs, while Chris Carson appears poised to be his direct backup. Prosise is going to have to prove he's ready to contribute as a reliable pass catcher this summer. Jun 7 - 7:21 PM

John Clayton writes C.J. Prosise appears to be in better shape this offseason.

After playing just 11 games in his first two seasons, Prosise changed his workout regime and is reportedly up to 225 pounds. It might be a case of too little, too late after Seattle drafted Rashaad Penny in the first round, but Prosise could have a role in the passing game if he is able to stay healthy. J.D. McKissic will be his main competition for targets.

Speaking Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll claimed RB C.J. Prosise (ankle, injured reserve) could return later this season.

Prosise apparently has a six-week timetable, but has to miss at least eight weeks on injured reserve. That means any potential return would not happen until the postseason. We could consider Prosise unlikely to see the field before the 2018 season.

Seahawks placed RB C.J. Prosise (ankles) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Dealing with right ankle woes nearly all season, Prosise injured his left ankle in Seattle's Week 10 win over the Cardinals. It's the second straight year Prosise has landed on injured reserve, with a shoulder issue limiting him to six games as a rookie. In all, the 2016 third-rounder will head into 2018 having handled the ball just 64 times across 11 games. Prosise has had nary a healthy week. He'll have to earn his 53-man roster spot next summer.

C.J. Prosise's Week 10 ankle injury was to his left ankle, and not the right ankle that has been bothering him all season.

Unfathomable. Coach Pete Carroll himself seemed in disbelief. Prosise has 11 days to get healed for Week 11, but might be closer to injured reserve than suiting up against the Falcons. J.D. McKissic is settling in as the Seahawks' passing-down back.

C.J. Prosise re-injured his ankle in Thursday night's game against the Cardinals, and will not return.

It's almost like he shouldn't have been playing. We've lost count of how many times Prosise has injured ankle. The issue first held him out in week 4. He had three carries for three yards before going down. For his own sake, Prosise should probably be placed on injured reserve. J.D. McKissic will continue to handle passing downs in Prosise's absence.

C.J. Prosise (ankle) wasn't listed on the Seahawks' final injury report for Week 10 against the Cardinals.

Prosise is set to return after missing the last two games and four of the last five with a high-ankle sprain. Expect him to be involved on passing downs Thursday night at Arizona.

C.J. Prosise (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 10 against the Cardinals.

Thomas Rawls has already been christened the Seahawks' Thursday night starter, but Prosise will get to mix in as a pass catcher/COP back. The challenge will be avoiding immediate injury. Prosise needs a wait-and-see week in fantasy.
Tue, Nov 7, 2017 07:33:00 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said C.J. Prosise (ankle) "will play this week."

Carroll is not the most reliable source when it comes to injuries, and things could be complicated by the Seahawks playing on Thursday night. More importantly, Prosise will not be a fantasy option even if he is active.
Mon, Nov 6, 2017 12:54:00 PM

Seahawks declared C.J. Prosise (ankle), CB Jeremy Lane (groin), S Earl Thomas (hamstring), G Jordan Roos, LT Rees Odhiambo, OT Luke Joeckel and DT Sheldon Richardson inactive for Week 9 against the Redskins.

It looks like the trio of Eddie Lacy, J.D. McKissic, and Thomas Rawls will continue to share the Seahawks rushing work.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 02:40:00 PM

C.J. Prosise (questionable, ankle) will be a game-time decision Week 9 against the Redskins.

Never healthy, Prosise is working back from a high-ankle sprain. There are way too many bodies in this backfield to trust any of them in fantasy lineups.

C.J. Prosise (ankle) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Back-to-back limited practices would seem to have Prosise to return after missing Week 7, but the Seahawks have gotten fairly opaque with their injury handling. Even if Prosise does play, his role would be unclear in the Seahawks' four-man backfield.
Thu, Nov 2, 2017 08:28:00 PM

C.J. Prosise (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

Prosise missed last week's game after aggravating an ankle injury in Week 7. He seems to be making progress and could be on track to return Sunday against Washington. When healthy, Prosise will resume his role as the Seahawks' primary back on passing downs.
Wed, Nov 1, 2017 07:33:00 PM

C.J. Prosise (ankle) is inactive Week 8 against the Texans.

He was not expected to play after aggravating his ankle injury last week. Seattle will also be without LG Luke Joeckel (knee), S Tedric Thompson, OG Jordan Roos, OT Isaiah Battle, DT Garrison Smith, and DE Quinton Jefferson against Houston.
Sun, Oct 29, 2017 02:38:00 PM

C.J. Prosise (ankle) is doubtful for Week 8 against the Texans.

Prosise couldn't practice this week after aggravating his sprained ankle early in last week's win over the Giants. Seattle will continue to feature Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls in the run game with J.D. McKissic mixing in on passing downs.
