Seahawks declared C.J. Prosise inactive for Week 5 against the Rams.
Prosise had a core-muscle injury last week, but he was not listed on the injury report coming into this game.

Wright (knee), DE Rasheem Green (ankle), OG Ethan Pocic (ankle), and NT Nazair Jones inactive for Week 5. Oct 7 - 3:00 PM

C.J. Prosise (core) is doubtful for Week 4 against the Cardinals.

It's only notable with Chris Carson (hip) a game-time decision. Prosise didn't practice all week and doesn't look close to returning. Mike Davis will remain Seattle's No. 3 back.
Sep 28 - 8:37 PM

Coach Pete Carroll says the Seahawks "have been talking about" moving C.J. Prosise to receiver.

Prosise is buried on the running back depth chart and played just six snaps in the opener, seeing the bulk of those on the Seahawks' final couple possessions when they were in catchup mode. All three of Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, and Mike Davis are ahead of Prosise for carries. With Doug Baldwin's latest knee injury, the Seahawks could use some warm bodies out wide. Prosise is a catch-first weapon who has some receiver experience from his days at Notre Dame.

USA Today's Andy Patton considers C.J. Prosise's roster spot "up in the air."

Prosise made waves early in training camp but has been trending down since. He had a rough preseason finale, managing just eight yards on three touches. With Mike Davis playing his way into a roster spot and JD McKissic a possible IR stash, it's hard to see room for Prosise. The Seahawks can save $660,000 from Prosise's release.

C.J. Prosise (hip) will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers.

Prosise is ready to roll after resuming practice earlier this week. He had been out with a minor hip issue. Following another injury-plagued season in 2017, Prosise needs to impress over the next few weeks if he wants to keep his roster spot.

C.J. Prosise (hip) returned to practice Wednesday.

Prosise missed the preseason opener. It's become more surprising to see Prosise on the field than off it as his career continues to be as injury-filled as any other player. Prosise need to figure out a way to stay healthy.
Aug 15 - 2:12 PM

C.J. Prosise was held out of the Seahawks' preseason opener with a hip injury.

It's par for the course for Prosise, who has battled durability woes since his final season at Notre Dame. Now on the roster bubble, Prosise is competing with Mike Davis and J.D. McKissic for a job behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny.

Speaking Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll praised C.J. Prosise's conditioning.

"It screams of how hard he worked and how important this is to him," Carroll said. Carroll has been praising Prosise's conditioning for two months now. Seemingly fighting for a roster spot earlier this offseason, Prosise is now squarely in the mix for third-down duties. He's been a legitimate playmaker the rare times he's been able to avoid injury and stay on the field.
Jul 31 - 6:38 PM

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta reports that RB C.J. Prosise appears to be the leader for the role of Seattle's two-minute, third-down back.

Condotta continues that Prosise has been a constant presence during the first three practices and worked with the first-team offense Sunday. Hawks OC Brian Schottenheimer clouded the situation further by complimenting rookie Rashaad Penny's pass-blocking skills and hinting that it takes "more than one [running back], for sure" to run the ball effectively. Although Chris Carson opened camp as the team's No. 1 back, we expect this situation to eventually settle with Penny atop Seattle's depth chart.
Jul 29 - 8:25 PM

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.
May 28 - 10:14 AM

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.
Tue, Nov 14, 2017 04:31:00 PM

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.
Fri, Nov 10, 2017 12:37:00 AM

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.
