Seahawks RG Germain Ifedi (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

He was officially limited. Ifedi is on track to play this week after missing the first three games. His return will give Seattle a much needed upgrade on the interior.
Sep 28 - 7:37 PM

C.J. Prosise (hand) practiced in full Wednesday.

Prosise will be in a cast for three more weeks, but can practice fully with it. He'll compete with C.J. Spiller for a Week 4 role behind Christine Michael.
Sep 28 - 7:30 PM

Jimmy Graham (knee) was limited on Wednesday.

Graham had an every-down role in Week 3, posting a 6/100/1 line. Seattle is just managing his reps.
Sep 28 - 7:25 PM

Tyler Lockett (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Lockett's knee wasn't an issue despite not getting targeted last week. He'll be in the lineup for Week 4 against the Jets.
Sep 28 - 7:20 PM

Russell Wilson (knee) is practicing in full for Week 4.

This was expected, but confirms that Wilson will play this week. Wilson is dealing with a sprained MCL and will wear a knee brace against the Jets. He's more of a low-end QB1 at less than 100 percent.

Seahawks signed RB C.J. Spiller to a one-year contract.

Spiller visited with the Jets and Packers before signing. He was a healthy scratch for the Saints in Week 1, and spent the last two weeks out of football. Spiller hasn't been productive since 2013, but lands in a great situation in Seattle. He will be in the mix for a passing-game role behind Christine Michael with Thomas Rawls (fibula) and C.J. Prosise (hand) sidelined.
Sep 28 - 6:34 PM

C.J. Prosise (hand) will be in a cast for at least three more weeks.

Coach Pete Carroll said earlier this week that he expected Prosise to return against the Jets in Week 4, but it's going to be hard for him to catch passes with a cast on his hand. He's no threat to Christine Michael's workload.
Sep 28 - 4:20 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said he "would be surprised" if Russell Wilson (knee) doesn't play Week 4 against the Jets.

Wilson is "pretty determined" to play through the sprained MCL and has been waking up in the middle of the night for treatment this week. A live-in specialist has been staying at his home. He'll be a low-end QB1 at less than 100 percent, on the road for a 1 PM ET start, and against a tough front four.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: The Jets are very stout against the run - they allowed the 3rd fewest FPPG to RBs last year and have allowed the third-fewest YPG to opposing backfields this year - yet aren't quite as strong against the pass. Wilson would be an elite GPP play if he was fully healthy, and while most of the field won't want to take the risk, Wilson is still a fine GPP target in large-field tournaments. This is a situation to avoid in cash games.

Free agent C.J. Spiller will work out for the Jets on Tuesday.

Spiller played for OC Chan Gailey in Buffalo and had the best season of his career in Gailey's final year as the Bills' head coach in 2012. Spiller amassed 1,703 total yards and eight touchdowns in Gailey's spread scheme that season. In New York, he'd be insurance behind Matt Forte and Bilal Powell.
Sep 26 - 6:30 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said Russell Wilson (knee) is doing "remarkably well," and he expects him to practice Wednesday and play Week 4 against the Jets.

"We feel like he's gonna be fine," Carroll said. Carroll has always seen things better than they may truly be, but all indications are Wilson will be able to go next Sunday. If he's seriously dealing with a sprained MCL, expect the Seahawks to take it easy on Wilson during the practice week. Wilson will be a borderline QB1/2 at less than 100 percent against the Jets' feared front four.
Sep 26 - 6:14 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects RG Germain Ifedi (ankle) to return this week.

Carroll said the Seahawks are "kind of counting on" it. OL coach Tom Cable said Ifedi might be able to practice last week, but he ended up sitting out all three sessions. The Seahawks could desperately use some help on the offensive line.
Sep 26 - 1:09 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Thomas Rawls (fibula) will miss multiple weeks.

Carroll said Rawls' injury is "a little worse than we thought." NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Rawls has a hairline fracture. After taking a shockingly long time to recover from the ankle injury which ended his 2015 campaign, it is not a given Rawls will return anytime soon. Christine Michael is locked in as the No. 1 back in Seattle. He will be a solid RB1 even in a tough matchup with the Jets.
Sep 26 - 12:50 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Russell Wilson has an MCL sprain.

Carroll said Wilson "feels great" and is recovering well, but he will wear a brace if he plays this week. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday night Wilson expected to play this week against the Jets, and the confirmation of a sprain suggests that is still the plan. Still, Wilson's mobility was hindered even before this injury, and he has not proven to be a quality fantasy asset while hurt. He will be difficult to trust even in a good matchup.

Sep 26 - 12:39 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Russell Wilson (knee, ankle) is "expecting to play" Week 4 against the Jets.

Wilson is really banged up -- battling a high-ankle sprain in his right leg and a reported sprained MCL in his left -- but early word is he's going to give it a go next Sunday. It's obviously way early to assume these things, and we should know more after his MRI on Monday. Consider him day to day for now.
Sep 25 - 9:28 PM

MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Seahawks believe Russell Wilson has a sprained MCL in his left knee.

It's perhaps more notable that both coach Pete Carroll and Wilson himself expressed confidence after Sunday's win that Wilson will be able to play in Week 4 against the Jets. NBC's Mike Florio reported Wilson will undergo an MRI on Sunday night to determine the full extent of the damage. Wilson insisted he "doesn't think the knee injury is as serious as it looked." Wilson is also dealing with a high ankle sprain on his right leg.
