CJ Prosise: Rejoins Houston's practice squad

Prosise signed to the Texans' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: The 26-year-old was released from Houston's active roster Monday but will remain in the organization on the practice squad. Prosise has played in five games this season but has only one carry for one yards while playing five total offensive snaps.

CJ Prosise: Let go by Houston

The Texans released Prosise on Monday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Prosise was called up from the practice squad when Duke Johnson was dealing with an ankle injury earlier this season, and he played just five offensive snaps over six games. It's possible Prosise was competing with Buddy Howell to stick around on Houston's active roster, but Howell blocked a punt in Sunday's loss Green Bay and eliminated all doubt about his role with the team. Prosise could seek a new opportunity elsewhere, but if he doesn't find a fit, he may land back on the practice squad.

CJ Prosise: Promoted to active roster

Prosise has been promoted to the active roster for Week 4 against Minnesota, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: With Duke Johnson (ankle) sidelined, Prosise has been the primary backup to David Johnson. He had one carry in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

CJ Prosise: Has red zone carry in loss

Prosise had one carry for one yard in Sunday's 28-21 loss to the Steelers in Week 3.

Analysis: Prosise, who was activated from the practice squad last week, had his first carry of the season, which came inside the red zone. He played just two snaps and five overall since being activated.

CJ Prosise: Shuffles up to active roster

The Texans elevated Prosise to the active roster Saturday.

Analysis: With Duke Johnson (ankle) considered questionable heading into Week 3, Prosise will add depth to the Texans' backfield in a tough matchup against the Steelers. Prosise logged three offensive snaps and no touches when he suited up in Week 2 against the Ravens.

CJ Prosise: Returns to practice squad

Prosise reverted to the Texans' practice roster Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Duke Johnson (ankle) missed Week 2's loss to the Ravens, so Prosise was promoted and played eight snaps. If Johnson is unable to play in Week 3 versus the Steelers, expect Prosise to be called back up.

CJ Prosise: Bumps to active roster

Prosise was elevated to the Texans' active roster Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: With Duke Johnson (ankle) considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Ravens, so Prosise will add depth in the backfield. After catching 10 of 12 targets over 125 snaps in 2019, Prosise is an adequete replacement for Johnson's style of play.

CJ Prosise: Protected Week 2

Prosise was added to the protected list of training squad players for Week 2, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Prosise, who was also protected last week, could be useful if Duke Johnson's not over an ankle injury by the weekend. Johnson was injured during the third quarter of Week 1's loss to the Ravens and described as week-to-week following the game. However, Houston head coach Bill O'Brien referred to Johnson as day-to-day Monday.

CJ Prosise: Protected on practice squad

Prosise was protected on Houston's practice squad for Week 1 against the Chiefs, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Under revised practice squad rules in 2020, teams are able to protect up to four players by Tuesday of each week, which prevents another team from signing that player. The protected list is subject to change weekly. If Prosise is not added to the 53-man roster for the game, then he is free to terminate his practice squad contract and sign with another team one day after the game.

CJ Prosise: Joining Texans' practice squad

Prosise will join the Texans' practice squad, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Death, taxes and coach Bill O'Brien acquiring pass-catching running backs. Depth is a crucial factor for all teams, but especially so with a myriad of different injury designations potentially creeping up at untimely situations throughout 2020, so Prosise's value as a practice squad player cannot be understated. The Texans are already loaded at the position thanks to the versatility of David Johnson and Duke Johnson, but should either one go down expect to see Prosise called up to the active roster should he prove to be recovered from 2019's gruesome arm injury.

CJ Prosise: Spotted at workout

Prosise had a workout with the Lions earlier this week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The oft-injured running back finished last season on IR after he broke his arm in Seattle's Week 16 loss to the Cardinals. Prosise likely completed his recovery months ago, but it's hard to see where he'd fit in with the Lions. Another team might offer him a better opportunity to earn passing-down snaps.

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.

December 9, 2019 12:02 PM EST

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.

December 9, 2019 10:01 AM EST

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.

November 24, 2019 8:44 AM EST

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.

October 14, 2019 4:12 PM EST

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.
