Date:

Christine Michael rushed six times for 32 yards in Seattle's Week 14 win over the Eagles.

Michael out-touched Robert Turbin 6-5, and out-gained him 32-21. Michael and Turbin would form a committee were Marshawn Lynch to go down with injury.
Dec 7 - 8:20 PM

Christine Michael rushed three times for 10 yards and caught one pass for 12 yards Week 13 against the 49ers.

The Seahawks turned to Michael to close out the game late in the fourth quarter, but he once again played well behind Robert Turbin when it mattered. He would at best be in a timeshare with Turbin if anything were to happen to Marshawn Lynch.
Nov 27 - 11:59 PM

Christine Michael rushed four times for 71 yards in Sunday's Week 10 win over the Giants.

Michael only had one carry in the first quarter and two while the game was in doubt. His biggest run, a 45-yarder, came in garbage time. We've seen nothing to suggest that C-Mike won't be a RB1 if Marshawn Lynch moves on in 2015.
Nov 9 - 7:45 PM

Christine Michael rushed four times for 16 yards in the Seahawks' Week 9 win over the Raiders.

The Seahawks were up by two touchdowns when they gave Michael most of a series in the third quarter. He had runs of seven, eight, and two, and lost a yard. If something happened to Marshawn Lynch, Michael would become a weekly flex option, likely sharing time with more "complete" but less talented Robert Turbin.
Nov 2 - 8:03 PM

Christine Michael rushed four times for 12 yards in Sunday's Week 8 win at Seahawks.

Michael actually got a series to himself in the second half of a very close game, an interesting development in light of Sunday morning's Marshawn Lynch reports. Seattle isn't going to trade Lynch at the deadline, but it's possible they'll try to get C-Mike a few touches each game as they prepare him for a featured role in 2015. Michael remains a premier Dynasty hold.
Oct 26 - 4:43 PM

Seahawks declared RB Christine Michael, CB Tharold Simon, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, OL Alvin Bailey, WR Kevin Norwood, TE Zach Miller, and DE Greg Scruggs inactive for Monday night's Week 5 game against the Redskins.

Michael is a healthy scratch as he doesn't play special teams and is the No. 3 ball carrier behind Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin. Simon is still working his way back from knee surgery. Miller is out with an ankle problem.
Oct 6 - 7:12 PM

Christine Michael is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Broncos.

This is essentially a healthy scratch, as Michael (hamstring) was listed as probable. He remains behind Robert Turbin. The rest of the Seahawks inactives: LB Bruce Irvin, CB Tharold Simon, T Andrew McDonald, T Garry Gilliam, WR Kevin Norwood and DE Greg Scruggs.
Sep 21 - 3:23 PM

Christine Michael (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 3.

Michael will return this week after missing the first two games. He should be the No. 3 back behind Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin.
Sep 19 - 5:49 PM

Christine Michael (hamstring) remained limited on Thursday.

Coach Pete Carroll had expected Michael to be "full go." He's 50-50 for Sunday's showdown with the Broncos, where he'd function as the No. 3 back.
Sep 18 - 7:16 PM

Christine Michael (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Coach Pete Carroll said he expects Michael to be "full-go" on Thursday and play in Week 3 against the Broncos. Michael will likely be the No. 3 back behind Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin.
Sep 17 - 3:53 PM

The Seahawks expect Christine Michael (hamstring) to return to practice Wednesday.

Michael hasn't played or practiced since pulling his hamstring in the preseason finale. With Marshawn Lynch battling "ongoing" back issues, Michael should see plenty of reps in practice this week. Lynch is expected to be fine for Week 3, and Michael would likely be the No. 3 back behind Lynch and Robert Turbin.
Sep 15 - 6:31 PM

Seahawks declared RB Christine Michael, WR Jordan Norwood, CB Tharold Simon, TE Cooper Helfet, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, DE Greg Scruggs and OT Andrew McDonald inactive for Week 2 against the Chargers.

It's nearly identical to Seattle's Week 1 list. Michael remains week to week with a hamstring injury, leaving Robert Turbin as Marshawn Lynch's clear-cut backup.
Sep 14 - 2:44 PM

Christine Michael (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 2.

Robert Turbin will remain Marshawn Lynch's backup at San Diego.
Sep 12 - 4:10 PM

Christine Michael (hamstring) remained sidelined Thursday.

Coach Pete Carroll had been optimistic Michael would return Thursday. Michael will almost certainly miss Sunday's game against the Chargers, again leaving Robert Turbin as Marshawn Lynch's unquestioned No. 2.
