C.J. Prosise (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's his first practice since going down in Week 3. Coach Pete Carroll expects Prosise to play Sunday against the Giants. Prosise's return could reduce J.D. McKissic to a reserve role.

Seahawks placed DE Cliff Avril (neck) on injured reserve.

Avril is meeting with specialists, but he's likely done for the year. He's reportedly considering retirement. Frank Clark will continue to get the majority of Avril's snaps.
Oct 18 - 5:03 PM

Speaking Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed C.J. Prosise (ankle) is expected to return for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Prosise hasn't played since Week 3. He's badly needed to provide a change-of-pace element in the Seahawks' jumbled backfield. It's unclear if Prosise's return will glue J.D. McKissic to the sideline.
Oct 17 - 4:04 PM

Michael Bennett is expected to play through his foot injury against the Giants.

Bennett is dealing with plantar fasciitis, which is a lingering injury that only gets better with rest. Bennett played through the issue in Week 5, finishing the Seahawks' win over the Rams. Bennett's practice time figures to be limited for the foreseeable future, but he should be out there on Sundays.

Seahawks LG Luke Joeckel is out 4-5 weeks after undergoing knee surgery.

Joeckel underwent an arthroscopic operation during the Seahawks' Week 6 bye. Unsurprisingly, Joeckel has been a liability on Russell Wilson's left side, though the options to replace him are even less appealing. Mark Glowinski is expected to get the first crack, though second-rounder Ethan Pocic is also a possibility. Coach Pete Carroll said both players could play in Week 7.

Seahawks FS Earl Thomas was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 5.

Thomas almost singlehandedly won the game for Seattle over the Rams last week, forcing a Todd Gurley fumble at the goal line in the first quarter that resulted in a touchback instead of touchdown. Thomas also intercepted Jared Goff late in the fourth quarter with the Seahawks winning by three. Off a 2016 broken leg, Thomas has picked up as Pro Football Focus' No. 8 safety thus far.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects C.J. Prosise (ankle) to return following the team's Week 6 bye.

J.D. McKissic has been fine as the Seahawks' third-down back in the injury-prone Prosise's absence, but we'd expect Prosise to reclaim his old job. It's a role that has not been profitable in fantasy leagues this season. We would also expect McKissic to remain involved in some capacity. Prosise probably isn't worth a roster spot in standard leagues.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls have "equal status" in the team's backfield.

"There's no reason to have any criteria for it right now because we like our guys, and really, equal status now is good for us," Carroll said. "We'll see how they do." The Seahawks are on bye for Week 6. Both backs received 10 touches in Sunday's win over the Rams, though Rawls out-snapped Lacy 32-19. We wouldn't expect anything in the way of clarity any time soon. Both backs will be on the RB3/4 borderline for Week 7 against the Giants.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said DE Michael Bennett is dealing with a "plantar fasciitis injury."

"He is really sore today," Carroll said. "But he was able to finish the game and did a fantastic job to help us down the stretch." The fact Bennett was able to finish the game is a good sign, and Seattle is on bye this week. Bennett should be good to go after the off week.
Oct 10 - 9:19 AM

Tyler Lockett caught 3-of-4 targets for 26 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Rams.

He added a seven-yard rush. Lockett is back to being a full-time player, but his volatility remains intact. He will be big-play dependent for the Seahawks' Week 7 journey to New Jersey to take on the Giants.
Oct 8 - 8:17 PM

Paul Richardson caught 3-of-5 targets for 35 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Rams.

It was a quiet day for the Seahawks' passing attack. Richardson will be an inadvisable WR4 for the Seahawks' trip to the Meadowlands (aka "MetLife Stadium") following the Week 6 bye.
Oct 8 - 8:14 PM

J.D. McKissic caught 3-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Rams.

McKissic "added" two carries for zero yards. 21 of McKissic's 36 yards came on one reception. It wasn't a bad performance as he filled in for C.J. Prosise, but also not anything that's going to change the calculus in Seattle's backfield. It's hard to take McKissic seriously as a FLEX option in any format.
Oct 8 - 7:54 PM

Thomas Rawls rushed eight times for 20 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Rams, adding two receptions for 15 yards.

#AsExpected, Rawls was in an even rotation with Eddie Lacy. Neither back could get the upper hand on early downs. J.D. McKissic mostly handled passing situations. This is a chaotic timeshare until further notice. Barring clarifying comments from coach Pete Carroll — which, don't hold your breath — Rawls will be off the FLEX radar when the Seahawks return from bye in Week 7.
Oct 8 - 7:52 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed nine times for 19 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Rams.

He added a nine-yard reception. Lacy got the "start," but as feared, was in an even rotation with Thomas Rawls, who also totaled 10 touches. J.D. McKissic caught three passes as third-down back. Lacy did have 1-2 nice runs, but it was a disappointing day against a Rams D that had been getting torched on the ground. This situation still has no clarity, and no fantasy upside.
Oct 8 - 7:49 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 6-of-8 targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Rams.

The catches were Graham's second most of the season, while the touchdown was his first. He caught a fade from Russell Wilson in the front left corner of the end zone. Despite his up-and-down season, Graham will be a golden play for Week 7 against a Giants defense getting shredded by seam stretchers.
