Travis Homer: Should stick around for 2021

Homer (knee) is one of three running backs under contract with the Seahawks for 2021, Lindsey Wisniewski of SI.com reports.

Analysis: Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and Alex Collins can all become unrestricted free agents, while Homer, Rashaad Penny (knee) and DeeJay Dallas are still on rookie contracts. Homer, a 2019 sixth-round pick, has mostly served as a passing-down specialist to this point in his career, handling a role that emphasizes blocking. He finished 2020 on injured reserve with a knee injury, but coach Pete Carroll hinted that the 22-year-old might have bene able to return if the Seahawks had made a deep playoff run. It thus stands to reason that Homer should be healthy before the start of the offseason program in April/May, though he may end up on the roster bubble anyway.

Travis Homer: Could return this season

Coach Pete Carroll said that Homer (knee) has an opportunity to return from injured reserve in the coming weeks, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: While Homer won't be eligible for reactivation during the regular season given his Dec. 19 placement on IR, the 22-year-old would be able to suit up as soon as the wild-card round. He hasn't appeared in a game since Week 10. However, Seattle could use the extra depth at running back with Carlos Hyde (illness) and DeeJay Dallas (ankle) continuing to be beleaguered by health issues of their own.

Travis Homer: Lands on IR

Homer (knee) has been placed on IR, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Homer is set to miss the rest of the regular season, but at the same time, Seattle's backfield will get a boost down the stretch with Rashaad Penny (knee) having been activated from the PUP list Saturday.

Travis Homer: Absence extends another week

Homer (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus Washington, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Homer is set to miss a fifth straight game. He's displayed no meaningful progress in his recovery, as he last practiced Nov. 18. Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas will be the team's only running backs in Week 15.

Travis Homer: Still not practicing

Homer (knee) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Homer is almost exactly one month removed from his last appearance at practice (Nov. 18) as he's tended to wrist, thumb and knee injuries. Only the third issue continues to plague him, but there remains no end in sight to his recovery. If he takes a seat again Sunday at Washington, it'll mark his fifth consecutive absence.

Travis Homer: Unable to practice Wednesday

Homer (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Homer hasn't practiced since Nov. 18, when he was also dealing with wrist and thumb injuries. The 22-year-old has distanced himself from those two issues, but the second-year running back is still bothered by a knee injury. He'll need to take the practice field by Friday to have a chance to suit up in Sunday's game against Washington. Once he's healthy, Homer could usurp DeeJay Dallas for the No. 3 running back spot due to his special-teams prowess.

December 16, 2020 4:31 PM EST

Travis Homer: Another absence Sunday

Homer (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Jets.

Analysis: Homer hasn't made any appreciable progress through his knee injury as he misses a fourth consecutive contest. With Homer sidelined and Rashaad Penny (knee) still working his way back from the PUP list, the Seahawks will continue to ride Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas out of the backfield.

December 13, 2020 11:41 AM EST

Travis Homer: Unlikely to play Sunday

Homer (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Homer continues to battle the knee injury and is poised to miss his fourth consecutive contest. Chris Carson should continue to lead Seattle's backfield Week 14, with Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas available as secondary options.

December 11, 2020 1:44 PM EST

Travis Homer: Misses another practice

Homer (knee) did not practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Homer appears on track to miss a fourth consecutive contest due to injury, though he at least seems to have recovered from his wrist and thumb issues. Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (toe) are both also tending to injuries of their own, leaving DeeJay Dallas as the only fully healthy running back currently on Seattle's roster.

December 10, 2020 4:49 PM EST

Travis Homer: No practice Wednesday

Homer (knee) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: There's no end in sight to Homer's health concerns, which so far have forced three consecutive absences. On a positive note, he rid himself of wrist and thumb issues on Wednesday's report, leaving him with just 'knee' this week. Still, the rest of the backfield is far healthier, so the Seahawks can stand to wait it out with Homer until he's 100 percent. For the time being, the backfield will be the domain of Chris Carson (foot), with Carlos Hyde (toe) and DeeJay Dallas handling any reps that linger.

December 9, 2020 4:55 PM EST

Travis Homer: Another absence Sunday

Homer (wrist/thumb/knee) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Giants.

Analysis: Homer has missed every practice the past two weeks as he deals with a trio of health concerns. As a result, he'll sit out for a third straight contest. Expect Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde (toe) to spearhead the Seahawks backfield in some way, shape or form Sunday.

December 6, 2020 11:43 AM EST

Travis Homer: Unlikely to play Sunday

Homer (wrist/thumb/knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants, Joe Fann of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Analysis: Homer is dealing with a trio of injuries and is expected to be sidelined for the third straight game as a result. Chris Carson (foot) is clear of an injury designation and will lead Seattle's backfield Week 13.

December 4, 2020 1:53 PM EST

Travis Homer: No-go in practice Thursday

Homer (wrist/thumb/knee) did not participate during Thursday's practice session, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Homer has been inactive for each of Seattle's past two games, and back-to-back DNPs to commence the practice week provides doubt for his status heading into a matchup against the Giants. Chris Carson (foot) was limited Thursday while Carlos Hyde (toe) sat out, leaving rookie DeeJay Dallas as the team's only injury-free back at the moment.

December 3, 2020 4:52 PM EST

Travis Homer: Misses practice Wednesday

Homer (knee/wrist/thumb) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Homer continues to be listed with a trio of injuries. He's been absent from practice for over two weeks now, and he's trending toward a third straight game on the sidelines. Chris Carson (foot) and Carlos Hyde (toe) handled all the backfield reps in last week's win over the Eagles and figure to do the same in Week 13 against the Giants if Homer can't play.

December 2, 2020 4:14 PM EST

Travis Homer: Ruled out ahead of Monday

Homer (wrist/thumb/knee) will not play Monday against the Eagles, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Homer never managed to practice at any point this week, so it's hardly a surprising designation. DeeJay Dallas could operate in the pass-catching role with Homer sidelined, although the return of Chris Carson (foot) likely means any other Seahawks back seeing the field is mainly operating in a relief capacity as opposed to schematic design.

November 28, 2020 1:57 PM EST

Travis Homer: No practice Friday

Homer (wrist/thumb/knee) didn't practice Friday, Joe Fann of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Analysis: Homer is quite banged up at the moment, tending to a trio of injuries. Coach Pete Carroll called Homer "really sore" on Tuesday and noted the running back's wrist in particular as bothersome, according to Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle. The Seahawks may welcome back Chris Carson (foot) to the backfield Monday in Philadelphia, so a cautious approach could be taken with Homer as he continues to recover.

November 27, 2020 4:38 PM EST

Travis Homer: No go Thursday

Homer (wrist/thumb/knee) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's estimated injury report, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: On Tuesday, coach Pete Carroll relayed Homer is "really sore" and has "a little something going on in his wrist," per Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle. Considering Homer is listed with wrist, thumb and knee concerns for a second straight week, it's no wonder that the second-year running back is hurting at the moment. With Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas healthy, and Chris Carson (foot) seemingly closing in on his first game action since Week 7, the Seahawks can opt to be cautious with Homer. Saturday's injury report may be telling for Homer's odds to suit up Monday in Philadelphia.

November 26, 2020 3:24 PM EST

Travis Homer: Tending to sore knee, wrist injury

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Homer (knee) is still "really sore" and also has "a little something going on in his wrist," Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Analysis: Carroll didn't make any mention of Homer's thumb, which had also been one of the three injuries that sidelined the running back in last week's win over the Cardinals. That said, Carroll hinted that Homer might need some time to overcome the knee and wrist concerns, which seemingly isn't a positive sign with regards to his chances of playing Monday in Philadelphia. Fortunately for Seattle, lead back Chris Carson (foot) looks on track to return from a four-game absence this week, providing some much-needed aid to a banged-up backfield.

November 24, 2020 2:43 PM EST

Travis Homer: Sidelined Week 11

Homer (wrist/knee/thumb) is listed as inactive Thursday versus the Cardinals.

Analysis: Homer is extremely banged up at the moment, tending to wrist, knee and thumb concerns. He'll join Chris Carson (foot) on the sideline, leaving the Seahawks backfield to Carlos Hyde, DeeJay Dallas and Bo Scarbrough.

November 19, 2020 3:55 PM EST

Travis Homer: Doubtful with trio of injuries

Homer (wrist/knee/thumb) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Analysis: Homer's myriad injuries are more likely than not to sideline him. Fellow running back Chris Carson (foot) is listed as questionable, leaving Carlos Hyde and DeeJay Dallas as the only running backs off Seattle's injury report heading into the key clash between NFC West rivals.
