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

Seahawks declared RB Eddie Lacy, WR Tanner McEvoy, CB Mike Tyson, C Joey Hunt, LB D.J. Alexander, TE Nick Vannett and DE Quinton Jefferson inactive for Week 17 against the Cardinals.

Lacy ends his disastrous first — and surely only — season in Seattle with four straight healthy scratches. A shell of the player he was upon first arriving in the NFL, 27-year-old Lacy never had a prayer behind the Seahawks' horrendous offensive line. He averaged 2.59 yards per carry between injuries, benchings and depth chart shakeups. Headed back to free agency, Lacy won't be missing many calls even if he keeps his phone on silent.

Seahawks declared RB Eddie Lacy, LB D.J. Alexander, C Joey Hunt, DE Quinton Jefferson, DT Nazair Jones, WR David Moore and CB Mike Tyson inactive for Week 16 against the Cowboys.

Lacy is a healthy scratch for the second week in a row. Frank Clark (toe), Bradley McDougald (knee) and Nick Vannett (shoulder) are good to go.

Seahawks declared RB Eddie Lacy as a healthy inactive for Sunday's Week 14 game versus the Jaguars.

Coming off last week's in which Mike Davis asserted himself as the lead back in the Seattle offense, it's no surprise that Lacy is afterthought, but it's just the second time on the season that he's been inactive. Davis played 73 percent of the snaps last week, the highest share for a Seattle running back in a game this season. S Kam Chancellor, C Joey Hunt, G Oday Aboushi, WR David Moore, DT Nazair Jones and DE Dion Jordan are also inactive for Sunday's game.

Eddie Lacy was held to one carry for three yards in Week 13 against the Eagles.

Lacy was the No. 2 back behind Mike Davis. He played only three snaps. With Davis locked in as the starter, Lacy is just a handcuff.

Eddie Lacy rushed 17 times for 46 yards and caught all three of his targets for 15 yards in the Seahawks' Week 12 win over the 49ers.

J.D. McKissic is Seattle's best running back at this point, but they are dead set on getting one of their bigger backs going. With Mike Davis sidelined by a groin injury and Thomas Rawls a no-show, Lacy got his shot this week and predictably failed to do much of anything. Seattle will likely give Davis another chance if he is ready to play against the Eagles, but this is a situation to avoid in an extremely difficult matchup.

Eddie Lacy rushed three times for two yards in the Seahawks' Week 11 loss to the Falcons.

He's done. There's nothing else to say. The Seahawks refused to ride him, even after next-in-line starter Mike Davis left in the third quarter with a groin injury. Seattle instead gave converted WR J.D. McKissic the carries.

Eddie Lacy (groin) has been removed from the Week 11 injury report.

Lacy is ready to return after sitting out last week. The Seahawks were moving away from a committee before Lacy went down so he should resume lead duties, though it won't be surprising if Thomas Rawls mixes on early downs. Lacy is an RB3 for Monday night's matchup with the Falcons.
Sat, Nov 18, 2017 04:16:00 PM

Eddie Lacy (groin) resumed practicing on Thursday, and is expected to return for Week 11.

For seemingly the 100th time this season, it returns the Seahawks' backfield to Square 1. Thomas Rawls showed very little during Lacy's shortened Week 9 and absent Week 10, so it's quite possible Lacy gets another shot at lead duties. More likely is that the duo is again in a near-even rotation on early downs. Neither player is a viable RB3 for Week 11.

Eddie Lacy (groin) is out for Week 10 against the Cardinals.

Lacy had little chance of suiting up on a short week after injuring his groin in Sunday's loss to Washington. Thomas Rawls will lead the backfield on Thursday night, though C.J. Prosise should play a role on passing downs.
Wed, Nov 8, 2017 04:39:00 PM

Eddie Lacy (groin) is expected to miss Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

Lacy simply doesn't have enough time to get healthy on the short week. He's also never been a particularly fast healer, though most of his injuries have been to his ankle. Thomas Rawls will get the start in Lacy's absence, with brittle C.J. Prosise attempting to mix in as a passing-down/change-of-pace option. J.D. McKissic should also get some run.

Eddie Lacy (groin) did not practice Monday.

Rawls took over the backfield following Lacy's departure Sunday, and Rawls rushed for 39 yards on nine attempts. Russell Wilson still led the team in yards on the ground. This backfield is one to avoid for the time being.

Eddie Lacy rushed six times for 20 yards in the Seahawks' Week 9 loss to the Redskins.

Lacy suffered a groin injury early in the game and was unable to return. As OC Darrell Bevell suggested, Lacy got the start and played a big role prior to his injury. Depending on the severity of his injury, Lacy should continue to have an opportunity to get the majority of work on early downs.

Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy exited Week 9 against the Redskins with a groin injury.

After rushing six times for 20 yards and catching a pass for 14 yards, Lacy suffered an injury to his groin.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 04:59:00 PM

Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell confirmed Eddie Lacy will start Sunday against Washington.

Seattle plans to ride Lacy and "see where it goes from there." After splitting time with Thomas Rawls the last few weeks, Lacy has a chance to take over on early downs. C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic will continue to play in pass situations.
