Seahawks LT Russell Okung (chest) has been cleared to return and is probable to face the Rams Week 17.

Okung ended up missing just one game with a bruised lung suffered Week 15 against the 49ers. With Max Unger (knee/ankle, questionable) also nearing a return, Seattle's offensive line should be 100 percent healthy for the playoff run.
Dec 27 - 9:15 AM

Marshawn Lynch (back) returned to a full practice Friday and is listed as probable for Week 17.

The Seahawks rested Lynch earlier in the week, but his status was never in doubt. Lynch is a top-five running back play for Sunday's matchup with St. Louis.
Dec 26 - 7:43 PM

Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Paul Richardson will start opposite Doug Baldwin. Kearse should be considered week to week and isn't a lock to be ready for Seattle's first playoff game.
Dec 26 - 7:30 PM

Tony Moeaki (questionable, shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Week 17 against the Rams.

Moeaki will likely return as the No. 2 tight end behind Luke Willson. Cooper Helfet (ribs) is also listed as questionable.
Dec 26 - 7:18 PM

Jermaine Kearse (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Kearse is expected to miss at least one week with a Grade-1 hamstring strain and isn't a lock to be ready for Seattle's first playoff game. Paul Richardson will start opposite Doug Baldwin in his absence.
Dec 24 - 7:31 PM

Jermaine Kearse has a "first degree" hamstring pull, and is expected to miss Week 17.

It sounds like Kearse could be questionable for Seattle's first playoff game, whether it's in the Wild Card or Divisional Round. Paul Richardson will move into two-wide sets during Kearse's absence.
Dec 23 - 3:44 PM

Seahawks TEs Tony Moeaki (shoulder) and Cooper Helfet (ankle) have resumed practicing.

Moeaki likely would have been headed to injured reserve were he not ready to practice this week for the playoff-bound Seahawks. With Moeaki and Helfet both sidelined in Week 16, starter Luke Willson went off against the Cardinals.
Dec 23 - 3:41 PM

Following Sunday's blowout win over the Cardinals, Seahawks OL coach Tom Cable said Marshawn Lynch missed the first quarter because Lynch was "the sickest I've ever seen him."

Twitter conspiracy theorists came out in droves Sunday night to suggest Lynch had been suspended, but it sounds like Lynch was genuinely under the weather. Coach Pete Carroll corroborated Cable's story, saying Lynch was "trying to throw up but couldn't." The NBC telecast also showed Lynch being stretched out on the sideline between possessions, after entering the game. Lynch should be a full go for Week 17 against the Jekyll & Hyde Rams defense.
Dec 22 - 4:52 PM

Seahawks LT Russell Okung (chest) is expected to resume practicing this week.

That would put Okung on track to suit up for Sunday's finale against the Rams, but the Seahawks won't take any chances with his health even as they fight for the NFC's No. 1 seed. Alvin Bailey filled in against the Cardinals, holding his own.
Dec 22 - 1:45 PM

Coach Pete Carroll is not optimistic on Jermaine Kearse's (hamstring) status for Week 17.

Kearse pulled his hamstring during Sunday night's win over the Cardinals. The Seahawks will have to use more Paul Richardson as they try to clinch a first-round bye against the Rams.
Dec 22 - 12:54 PM

Christine Michael had eight carries for 28 yards in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

Michael was mostly used in mop-up duty, but saw four carries with Marshawn Lynch missing time in the first quarter. He remains behind both Lynch and Robert Turbin for touches. Seattle has a Week 17 matchup against the Rams.
Dec 22 - 1:24 AM

Robert Turbin rushed 10 times for 38 yards in Week 16 against the Cardinals.

Turbin started and got the majority of work in the first quarter with Marshawn Lynch sidelined. He finished with 10 touches, with Christine Michael also mixing in. Turbin will be just a change of pace behind Lynch in Week 17.
Dec 22 - 1:22 AM

Luke Willson secured all three of his targets for 139 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

Willson was left wide open for a 80-yard touchdown on a blown coverage by Cardinals S Rashad Johnson in the first quarter. He was on the receiving end of both of Russell Wilson's touchdowns, with his second coming on a 20-yard seam route. It's a nice breakout game for Willson, who should continue to see the majority of snaps when Tony Moeaki returns. Seattle plays the Rams in Week 17.
Dec 22 - 1:13 AM

Doug Baldwin had seven catches for 113 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

Baldwin's biggest play was a 49-yard third-quarter catch where Cardinals CB Antonio Cromartie fell down at the line of scrimmage. With Jermaine Kearse sidelined, he was targeted a team-high 11 times. Baldwin will take a 63/782/3 line in Week 17 against the Rams.
Dec 22 - 1:08 AM

Paul Richardson had five catches for 52 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Cardinals.

Richardson saw an expanded role after Jermaine Kearse went down with a hamstring injury. He finished with seven targets, behind only Doug Baldwin. Richardson could start in Week 17 if Kearse is held out.
