Carlos Hyde: Set to play Sunday

Hyde (shoulder) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Cardinals, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Even though Hyde's activity remained limited in practices Wednesday and Thursday, he showed enough improvement to gain clearance to play for the first time since Week 3. Hyde should immediately unseat Travis Homer for the No. 2 role in the backfield, serving as the top option off the bench behind starter Chris Carson. In his first three games with Seattle, Hyde carried 16 times for 57 yards and a touchdown while hauling in all three of his targets for 26 yards.

Carlos Hyde: Another limited practice

Hyde (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Hyde hasn't suited up since Week 3 due to a lingering shoulder injury, but it appears as though he's at least shed his red non-contact jersey. When healthy, the veteran running back stands to resume serving as the primary backup to Chris Carson, but he could have to successfully log a full practice session Friday in order to be fully cleared for Sunday's divisional contest in Arizona.

Carlos Hyde: Puts in limited practice session

Hyde (shoulder) was limited during Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Hyde may not take any contact during the practice week, and the limited session lines up with that statement. Hyde has already missed the team's last two games, and a Week 6 bye wasn't enough to get him back on track. The veteran running back still has two more practices to start absorbing contact ahead of Sunday's game versus the Cardinals. If Hyde doesn't suit up, there won't be much fantasy value behind bell cow Chris Carson, as Travis Homer and rookie DeeJay Dallas likely would split the remaining reps.

Carlos Hyde: Could remain sidelined Sunday

Hyde (shoulder) may not take contact in practice this week, indicating he could miss Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll is notoriously optimistic about his players' injuries, so it's best to make a judgment on the players' practices statuses instead. If Hyde is limited all week and doesn't take contact, it likely means he won't see the field for Sunday's divisional clash. Travis Homer and rookie DeeJay Dallas would rotate in behind bell cow Chris Carson if Hyde misses another game.

Carlos Hyde: Out again Sunday

Hyde (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Vikings.

Analysis: The Seahawks' decision with Hyde isn't a surprising one considering he was restricted to non-contact work this week as a limited practice participant. It remains to be seen when Hyde will be cleared to take contact on his surgically repaired shoulder, but his next chance to play will come after the team's Week 6 bye on Sunday, Oct. 25 against the 49ers. Meanwhile, Chris Carson will continue to serve as Seattle's lead back, with Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas on hand for change-of-pace duty.

Carlos Hyde: Listed as questionable again

Hyde (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Hyde was a limited practice participant for a second straight week, once again being restricted to non-contact work. He ended up inactive for last week's win over the Dolphins, but it's possible seven more days of recovery will allow him to suit up Sunday night against the Vikings. If not, the Seahawks will use Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas for backfield support behind lead back Chris Carson.

Carlos Hyde: Another limited session

Hyde (shoulder) was limited in Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Hyde's second straight limited practice session of the week doesn't come as any sort of surprise, considering that Coach Pete Carroll has already stated that he won't handle contact drills. As such, the 30-year-old's status for Sunday's game against the Vikings appears truly up in the air, especially after he missed Week 4. Meanwhile, top running back Carlos Hyde (knee) resumed practicing in full Thursday.

October 8, 2020 5:30 PM EST

Carlos Hyde: Officially limited in practice

Hyde (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll has already stated that Hyde won't take contact during the practice week, so this designation is no surprise. However, Carroll is optimistic about Hyde's status for Sunday's game versus the Vikings. It's fair to take Carroll's words with a grain of salt, especially with a Week 6 bye where the 30-year-old running back could enjoy some additional rest. If he does suit up, he'll remain the distant No. 2 behind Chris Carson.

Carlos Hyde: Won't take contact this week

Coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Hyde (shoulder) will wear a no-contact jersey during the practice week, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Carroll continues to be optimistic that Hyde will play Sunday against the Vikings, and he added that this isn't the same shoulder that Hyde had surgery on this offseason to repair a torn labrum. Still, it's likely Hyde carries a questionable tag, at best, into Sunday's matchup, and with a Week 6 bye on the horizon, the Seahawks could opt to provide the 30-year-old running back some extra rest so that he stays healthy in the long run. If he sits out, expect Travis Homer and rookie DeeJay Dallas to rotate in behind Chris Carson.

Carlos Hyde: Could be rested Week 5

Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Hyde's (shoulder) status is uncertain for Week 5 against the Vikings, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Carroll hinted at Hyde sitting out and utilizing the Week 6 bye to get back to full health. This regimen would make sense considering how well Chris Carson has played through four games, and the Seahawks have been a pass-heavy team anyway. If he does indeed sit out, Travis Homer and rookie DeeJay Dallas will likely split the backfield reps behind Carson.

October 5, 2020 4:01 PM EST

Carlos Hyde: Won't play Week 4

Hyde (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Analysis: While Hyde's absence hurts the Seahawks' depth at running back, the team will at least have top option Chris Carson (knee) available after the latter's status was also in question for the Week 4 matchup. Behind Carson, Travis Homer is expected to step in as the top backup to Carson, while rookie DeeJay Dallas could also see the first offensive snaps of his career after being limited to a special-teams role in his NFL debut last week against the Cowboys. Hyde, meanwhile, will turn his focus to getting healthy for the Seahawks' Week 5 home game versus Minnesota.

Carlos Hyde: Not expected to play Sunday

Hyde (shoulder) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Dolphins, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Analysis: Meanwhile, Adam Schefter of ESPN referred to Hyde as a pre-game decision for the contest, but at this stage it appears as though Hyde is less likely to give it a go in Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff than Seattle's top back Chris Carson (knee), who is expected to play.

October 4, 2020 4:17 AM EST

Carlos Hyde: Likely game-time call

Hyde (shoulder) is expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday's game at Miami, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The 30-year-old was a limited practice participant throughout the week and is officially considered questionable, and it appears his status remains up in the air heading into Sunday. Starter Chris Carson (knee) is also questionable but is expected to play, so Hyde may be limited to his usual secondary role even if he's active.

October 3, 2020 9:51 PM EST

Carlos Hyde: Questionable for Sunday

Hyde (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Miami, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: With Hyde and Chris Carson (knee) both listed as questionable, it'll be tough to get a read on the Seattle backfield before the team releases its inactive list Sunday morning. Fortunately, the Seahawks have an early kickoff at 1:00 p.m. ET, so their inactives should come out around 11:30 a.m. Carson and Hyde both have been limited practice participants throughout this week, while Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas are the healthy alternatives in the Seattle backfield.

October 2, 2020 1:31 PM EST

Carlos Hyde: Another limited practice

Hyde (shoulder) was limited in Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Hyde has now logged two straight limited practice sessions, as has top running back Chris Carson (knee). Travis Homer, who remains fully healthy, would be in line to lead Seattle's backfield in Miami on Sunday if both Hyde and Carson were forced to miss time due to injuries. The Seahawks also have rookie fourth-round pick DeeJay Dallas on hand.

October 1, 2020 5:29 PM EST

Carlos Hyde: Injury pops up

Hyde (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Hyde looked poised to take on a bigger role in Week 4 against the Dolphins following news that Chris Carson had a first-degree knee sprain, but now he has an injury of his own. The 30-year-old Hyde underwent surgery this offseason to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, and while it's unclear if his current injury is related, it's worth keeping an eye on. If both running backs sit out, Travis Homer will likely lead the backfield with rookie DeeJay Dallas rotating in.

September 30, 2020 5:08 PM EST

Carlos Hyde: Increased duties on tap?

Hyde could log more touches moving forward following news that Carson suffered a first-degree knee sprain during Sunday's 38-31 win over the Cowboys, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Hyde was brought in by the Seahawks this offseason for this specific circumstance, as Carson has missed at least one game in each of his first three NFL seasons. Keep in mind that this injury usually carries a 1-to-2 week recovery timeline, and coach Pete Carroll hasn't ruled Carson out for Week 4's matchup against the Dolphins. Still, fantasy managers should be intrigued by Hyde, who could shape up as the interim No. 1 RB. However, Hyde hasn't been very explosive this year with just 3.6 yards per carry, but he's caught all three targets for 26 yards so far. He and Travis Homer both logged 16 offensive snaps in Week 3 and will likely compete for reps if Carson indeed sits out, and it's not out of the realm of possibilities that Homer beats Hyde for the job.

September 28, 2020 12:40 PM EST

Carlos Hyde: Stable role through two weeks

Hyde rushed five times for 22 yards and caught both targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Patriots.

Analysis: Hyde dropped to a 24 percent snap share in Week 2 with Chris Carson getting more comfortable after last year's serious hip injury, but the former still finished the game with seven touches -- the same number as Week 1. However, any hope of Hyde splitting reps with Carson has essentially been extinguished, as Carson will be the unequivocal lead back as long as he stays healthy. Hyde is a solid insurance policy in deeper formats, but Travis Homer could get some reps as well if Carson gets hurt.

September 21, 2020 12:15 PM EST

Carlos Hyde: Punches in TD against Atlanta

Hyde rushed seven times for 23 yards and a score in Sunday's 38-25 win over the Falcons.

Analysis: Hyde logged more carries than Chris Carson (six) in this contest, although Carson was heavily involved in the passing game with six receptions for 45 yards and a touchdown while Hyde didn't receive a target. Still, coach Pete Carroll put Hyde into the game late in the fourth quarter to seal the win with a one-yard touchdown. Carroll has hinted at a timeshare between Carson and Hyde before, but the touches could soon start favoring Carson, who looked healthy after fracturing his hip last year.

September 13, 2020 2:13 PM EST

Carlos Hyde: Preparing to play Sunday

Hude (shoulder) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and is in line to play Sunday versus the Falcons, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: There has been concern surrounding Hyde since he underwent shoulder surgery in May and took it easy at times during training camp, but the 29-year-old running back appears to be at full health heading into Week 1. Meanwhile, Chris Carson is also recovered after suffering a fractured hip in Week 16 last year. Hyde doesn't have a competitive advantage over Carson, but if coach Pete Carroll opts to limit Carson's touches in his first game back from injury, that would afford Hyde, Travis Homer and rookie DeeJay Dallas a chance to pick up the remaining touches.
