Christine Michael missed practice Wednesday with a hamstring injury and won't play in the preseason finale.

The Seahawks re-signed RB Demitrius Bronson to carry some of the load Thursday. Michael's preseason ends with 23 carries for 89 yards (3.9 YPC) and one score. He also caught seven balls for 56 yards and another TD. Despite the strong preseason, Michael is still No. 3 on the depth chart.

Christine Michael is still listed as the No. 3 running back on the Seahawks' official depth chart.

Michael has been running behind Robert Turbin all summer, and couldn't officially leapfrog him in the third preseason game. Michael did split time with Turbin, however, even getting some red-zone carries with the first-team offense. Both players would have roles were Marshawn Lynch to go down with injury. Turbin's overall polish is the only thing keeping him ahead of Michael's electrifying raw ability.

The Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll have been "collectively fined" $300,000 for violating the league's offseason non-contact practice rules

The team has also been docked two minicamp practices. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Seahawks' June 16 OTAs session was "deemed unsuitable under CBA rules." It's hardly a federal offense, but won't help Carroll's reputation as a renegade rules bender.

Seahawks placed DB Eric Pinkins (foot) on the reserve/NFI list.

Pinkins, a sixth-round rookie, is battling a Lisfranc injury and will be sidelined for at least the first six games of the season. He's a big hitter at 6'4/220.

Seahawks LB Heath Farwell needs groin surgery.

Farwell was injured in Friday night's preseason game. He doesn't play much defense, but is a stalwart on special teams. Farwell had nine tackles in kick coverage in 2013. He's likely headed for season-ending I.R.

Seahawks RB Spencer Ware has nine carries for 28 yards through three preseason games.

He's added two catches for 13 yards. Most troubling for his roster chances, Ware worked behind someone named Demitrius Bronson in Friday's preseason game, as well as Marshawn Lynch, Christine Michael, and Robert Turbin. A 2013 sixth-rounder out of LSU, Ware's odds of making the 53 seem bleak.

Seahawks rookie WR Paul Richardson has five catches for 49 yards on nine targets through three preseason games.

The second-round burner is primarily running with Seattle's second- and third-team offenses, behind Doug Baldwin, Percy Harvin, and Jermaine Kearse. The Seahawks' first-team three-wide set is locked in, but Richardson brings a lid-lifting element the others don't. Expect his role to grow over the course of 2014.

FS Earl Thomas is the favorite to return punts for the Seahawks this season.

Thomas almost broke a 59-yard return for a touchdown in the Seahawks' third preseason game Friday night. It seems unwise to risk an All-Pro safety that was just given a huge contract extension on punt returns, but Thomas is a dynamic player with the ball in his hands.

Seahawks DE/OLB O'Brien Schofield's roster spot is "written in permanent ink."

Schofield recorded his second sack of the preseason and hit the quarterback three times in the Seahawks' third preseason game Friday night. He has outplayed Benson Mayowa this preseason, and has likely carved out a role as a rotational lineman.

Zach Miller caught one pass for seven yards in Friday night's preseason game against the Bears.

He secured his lone target. Primarily a blocker in Seattle's offense, Miller has two receptions this preseason and is nowhere near the fantasy radar.

Robert Turbin rushed six times for 26 yards and caught a four-yard pass in Seattle's third preseason game Friday night against the Bears.

He has 112 yards on 22 carries in the preseason. Turbin rotated with Christine Michael against Chicago after Marshawn Lynch handled Seattle's first drive. Michael was the primary back in the red zone and showed well in blitz pickup. As C-Mike is Seattle's most talented runner, Turbin should be feeling the heat. We suspect Turbin and Michael would form something of a timeshare in the event of a Lynch injury, making the Seahawks' starter fairly difficult to handcuff. Turbin may be the more complete back, but Michael would be the higher-ceiling option.

Christine Michael rushed eight times for 28 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

He was the third Seahawks back to enter, behind Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin. Michael and Turbin both got first-team run after Lynch departed, however, with C-Mike handling deep red-zone carries toward the end of Seattle's second drive. Perhaps most promisingly, Michael executed on a first-quarter blitz pickup of Lance Briggs. There are no questions about Michael's running ability, but he still needs to polish the finer points of his game. He fumbled in each of the Seahawks' first two preseason affairs, but displayed ball security on Friday night and was very active in the passing game, which has historically been a weakness for C-Mike. He's a high-upside Dynasty stash, albeit with injury-dependent re-draft value.

Doug Baldwin secured 2-of-2 targets for 23 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game Friday night against the Bears.

Baldwin played in three-wide formations with Jermaine Kearse and Percy Harvin, but just so happened to be the quietest member of the trio in this game. Playing Golden Tate's old role at "X" receiver, Baldwin will run lower-percentage routes than Percy Harvin, and score fewer touchdowns than jump-ball specialist Jermaine Kearse. We see Baldwin as a low-ceiling fantasy flier. Baldwin has four catches for 43 yards through three exhibition affairs.
Aug 23 - 12:28 AM

Percy Harvin caught 3-of-3 targets for 61 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game Friday night.

Harvin returned the opening kickoff 46 yards, and found an opening in Chicago's defense for a 25-yard gain on Seattle's opening drive. He added a 23-yarder on a curl route out of the slot early in the second quarter, whipping Bears CB Tim Jennings. Harvin has a combined 7-92 receiving line this preseason. Although his explosiveness clearly remains intact, we wouldn't be surprised if Harvin becomes a better real-life than fantasy player in Seattle.
Aug 23 - 12:24 AM

Jermaine Kearse secured 4-of-5 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' third preseason game Friday night versus Chicago.

Kearse was targeted in the red zone in the first quarter, but couldn't secure Russell Wilson's throw. He rebounded for a 12-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. As Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin are limited from a size standpoint, 6-foot-1, 207-pound Kearse is a solid bet to lead the Seahawks' wideout corps in TD catches this year. Kearse has five catches for 74 yards and the touchdown through three preseason games. He's in the WR5 hunt.
