CJ Prosise: Placed on injured reserve

Prosise (arm) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: It was already reported that Prosise would miss the rest of the season, but the team placed both him and fellow running back Chris Carson (hip) on injured reserve to open up roster spots for Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin.

CJ Prosise: Out for season

Prosise (arm) will be out for the rest of the season after getting injured in Seattle's Week 16 loss to the Cardinals, according to coach Pete Carroll, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Analysis: Prosise and Chris Carson (hip) -- who also suffered a season-ending injury in Sunday's game -- join Rashaad Penny (knee) on the list of Seahawks running backs to be lost for the season in recent weeks. Travis Homer emerges as the team's lone healthy running back in the wake of the carnage. Expect the team to bring in some competition for Homer heading into the Week 17 finale against San Francisco, as Homer had never logged a touch at the NFL level prior to the past two games.

CJ Prosise: Exits with arm injury

Prosise won't return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to an arm injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: This injury is especially notable since Chris Carson (hip) was also forced out of the game, leaving Travis Homer as the lone healthy half back.

CJ Prosise: Garners six touches

Prosise rushed five times for 15 yards and caught his only target for a 10-yard reception in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: With Rashaad Penny (knee) out for the season, both Prosise and rookie Travis Homer were in line for an increased workload. However, behind bell-cow Chris Carson, that doesn't mean much. Carson logged 25 touches Sunday, while Prosise and Homer combined for eight.

CJ Prosise: Slated for No. 2 role

Prosise is expected to work as the No. 2 running back with Rashaad Penny suffering an ACL sprain, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Penny left Sunday's 28-12 loss to the Rams on the first drive, and while his official timeline for return isn't clear, it's likely he misses at least a few weeks. Prosise was active for the first time since Week 7 and played 11 offensive snaps in Penny's stead, gaining two yards on his lone carry. Chris Carson will be the undisputed bell cow moving forward, but coach Pete Carroll expects to include Prosise in the gameplans while rookie Travis Homer should get some tread as well. Prosise -- a third-round pick in 2016 -- has rushed 14 times for 43 yards and a touchdown this season, and he's turned nine receptions into 66 yards.

CJ Prosise: Minimal usage in return to lineup

Prosise rushed once for two yards in Sunday's 28-12 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Prosise returned to the lineup for the first time since Week 7, but he barely played despite Rashaad Penny leaving with a major knee injury on the team's first drive. It looks like Penny could miss some time, so Prosise could carve out an third-down role moving forward. However, Chris Carson will remain the bell cow, so Prosise lacks fantasy upside.

CJ Prosise: Healthy scratch Week 12

Prosise (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Analysis: Prosise has been a healthy scratch for four straight contests. The Seahawks will once again roll with rookie sixth-round pick Travis Homer as the No. 3 backfield option behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny.

CJ Prosise: Disappears after fumble

Prosise rushed three times for eight yards and caught one of three targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 32-28 win over the Browns. He also lost a fumble.

Analysis: Prosise wasn't scripted for a large role despite Rashaad Penny (hamstring) being inactive, but he was called upon for a two-point conversion attempt that he failed to convert. He also fumbled late in the third quarter and didn't receive a touch for the rest of the game, although that could be attributed to the Seahawks sticking with Chris Carson in a tight game. Prosise will continue to be a change-of-pace back going forward.

CJ Prosise: No offensive snaps in win

Prosise didn't log any offensive snaps in Thursday's 30-29 win over the Rams.

Analysis: With Rashaad Penny returning from a hamstring injury, Prosise's role in the offense disappeared in this divisional matchup. Penny and Chris Carson combined for 33 carries, with the latter garnering 27 himself. As long as both players stay healthy, Prosise's fantasy value appears negligible.

CJ Prosise: Vultures late TD

Prosise rushed three times for four yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Cardinals.

Analysis: The Seahawks committed to getting Chris Carson's confidence back in this game after he fumbled four times over the first three contests. As a result, Prosise wasn't targeted and was only afforded three carries. He made use of the limited role, however, scoring on a nine-yard run just four plays after Carson's touchdown was called back due to Will Dissly's holding. With Carson back to his normal self -- 145 scrimmage yards on 26 touches -- and Rashaad Penny (hamstring) expected to return Thursday versus the Rams, Prosise will return to his change-of-pace role.

CJ Prosise: Snags five passes

Prosise rushed four times for five yards and caught all five targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: Prosise was slated for more opportunities since Rashaad Penny (hamstring) was inactive, and a first-half fumble by Chris Carson boosted him even further. Although Prosise was ineffective on the ground, he made an impact as a pass-catcher. Penny's expected to return to practice this week, however, and Carson's fumble woes won't kick him completely out of the pecking order. Prosise's best shot at fantasy value is still having injuries in front of him.

CJ Prosise: Primary backup in Week 3

Prosise is set to serve as starting running back Chris Carson's primary backup in Sunday's Week 3 tilt against the Saints with fellow running back Rashaad Penny (hamstring) declared inactive for the contest.

Analysis: Prosise is still likeliest to make his biggest contributions via his considerable pass-catching skills, but he could also be in line for 5-to-7 carries as a complement to Carson. The 2016 third-round pick has carried just twice for seven yards and caught three passes for 13 yards while slotting in behind Carson and Penny over the first two weeks.

CJ Prosise: Expanded role awaits

Prosise is expected to see an uptick in snaps Sunday against the Saints with Rashaad Penny (hamstring) not expected to be available for the contest, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Analysis: Seattle officially lists Penny as questionable and doesn't believe his hamstring injury is a significant one, but at this stage, the team appears set to err on the side of caution and withhold the second-year back from action this weekend. That leaves Prosise in line as the top change-of-pace option behind starter Chris Carson, whose job security may have loosened after he lost fumbles in both of the Seahawks' first two games. Carson should still be on track to earn the majority of the ball-carrying opportunities Sunday, with Prosise likely to provide his most significant impact as a receiver out of the backfield.

CJ Prosise: Three catches Sunday

Prosise rushed twice for seven yards and caught all three targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 28-26 win over the Steelers.

Analysis: Prosise registered all five of his touches on the final drive of the second half after failing to get a touch in Week 1. The oft-injured running back is still a clear No. 3 in this offense behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny, but fantasy owners should keep an eye on him in case either of those two get injured.

CJ Prosise: No. 3 running back with upside

Prosise made Seattle's 53-man roster, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Due to injuries, Prosise has played in just 16 games since the Seahawks took him in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He's healthy now and had an impressive preseason, beating out J.D. McKissic for the role as Seattle's No. 3 back. Prosise is an intriguing dual-threat back when he's healthy, but he'll have a tough battle to rise up the depth chart with Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny in front of him. However, the Seahawks were comfortable rolling three running backs last year with Mike Davis, and Carson's health is worth keeping an eye on while Penny is far from a sure thing, so Prosise has potential to make a fantasy impact at some point in 2019.

CJ Prosise: Gains 42 yards Thursday

Prosise rushed five times for 42 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Raiders.

Analysis: Prosise was the Seahawks' leading rusher for the second consecutive preseason game. The fourth-year back is currently competing with J.D. McKissic for the third back/receiving back role. Prosise certainly has performed better over the past couple of weeks (McKissic had zero yards Thursday), but we will wait for the team's final decision come Saturday.

CJ Prosise: Encouraging performance in win

Prosise rushed five times for 32 yards and a touchdown and brought in his only target for 15 yards in the Seahawks' 23-15 preseason win over the Chargers on Saturday.

Analysis: Prosise paced the Seahawks in both rushing attempts and yardage while also logging the only touchdown on the ground for the team's running backs. The oft-injured fourth-year pro has only played in 16 games over his first three seasons, and he remains in a seemingly close battle with J.D. McKissic for the No. 3 running back role going into next Thursday's preseason finale versus the Raiders.

August 24, 2019 10:34 PM EST

CJ Prosise: Suiting up Sunday

Prosise (hip) is active for Sunday's preseason game in Minnesota, Gregg Bell of The News Tribune reports.

Analysis: Prosise missed the team's previous contest with a hip sprain but looks to be fully healthy now. The 2016 third-rounder is on the roster bubble, so a strong performance could go a long way for the receiving back here.

August 18, 2019 4:44 PM EST

CJ Prosise: Won't play Thursday

Prosise won't suit up for Thursday's preseason game versus the Broncos due to a hip sprain, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Analysis: Prosise previously dealt with a hamstring injury and an illness this offseason, and will now work to get healthy from a hip sprain. Recurring injuries have become a feature of Prosise's career, as he's never suited up for more than six games in a season since being selected in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

August 7, 2019 1:15 PM EST

CJ Prosise: Sidelined with flu

Prosise was held out of Thursday's practice while sick with the flu, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Prosise injured his hamstring in minicamp but appears to have recovered from that issue. It's expected that he'll be back from his bought with the flu in a couple days and return to a full go at practice.
