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

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.

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.
Sep 11 - 7:15 PM

Christine Michael (hamstring) will not practice Wednesday.

Michael is expected to resume practicing Thursday, according to coach Pete Carroll. He was inactive for Seattle's Thursday night opener, and is questionable to play this week. The missed time has allowed Robert Turbin to handle all the work behind Marshawn Lynch.
Sep 10 - 3:54 PM

Seahawks declared RB Christine Michael, WR Jordan Norwood, CB Tharold Simon, TE Cooper Helfet, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, WR Phil Bates and DE Greg Scruggs.

Michael is week to week, leaving Robert Turbin with some breathing room as Marshawn Lynch's top backup. A fourth-rounder out of Alabama, Norwood will likely be a fixture on the inactives list.
Sep 4 - 7:10 PM

Christine Michael (hamstring) has been ruled out of Thursday night's opener against the Packers.

Michael didn't practice this week and is still recovering from the hamstring injury he suffered in Seattle's preseason finale. Robert Turbin will continue to handle No. 2 duties behind Marshawn Lynch.
Sep 3 - 2:54 PM

Christine Michael (hamstring) remained out of Seahawks practice Tuesday.

Michael appears all but certain to miss Thursday's opener against the Packers. Robert Turbin had already secured No. 2 duties behind Marshawn Lynch before Michael's injury, but this gives him more breathing room.
Sep 2 - 5:29 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll revealed Monday that Christine Michael (hamstring) is still "banged up."

Michael missed Seattle's preseason finale with a hamstring injury, and his Week 1 availability sounds doubtful with the Seahawks opening up on Thursday night. As to C-Mike's status, Carroll said he'll "figure it out" later in the week. It's worth noting Michael battled injuries throughout his college career. He is currently the Seahawks' No. 3 tailback behind Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin.
Sep 1 - 3:49 PM

Seahawks OL coach Tom Cable cited Christine Michael for inconsistency this preseason.

Michael had two fumbles in the preseason and had some lapses in blocking such as forgetting to chip before going out for a pass. Despite unique running ability, he remains behind Robert Turbin on the depth chart. "It's just being able to put a good play together and then a good one the next time and the next time," Cable said. "When that becomes his habit, then he owns it. Right now, he doesn't own it." Michael would have a major role if Marshawn Lynch went down, but he would not be an every-down feature back.
