The Seahawks didn't extend a tender to Madden, making him an unrestricted free agent, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Madden rushed three times for three yards across 14 games with the Seahawks last season, and saw most of his usage as a blocker. The 25-year-old sat out Seattle's wild-card playoff loss against the Cowboys due to a hamstring injury, but should be fully healthy as he hits the open market.

Madden (hamstring) was ruled out for Saturday's wild-card game at Dallas.
Analysis: Madden was listed as doubtful with the hamstring issue, so his absence was to be expected. The Seahawks will go without a true fullback Saturday, but could utilize tight ends Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson as blockers out of the backfield, if necessary.

Madden (hamstring) is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Cowboys, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Madden (chest) is inactive for Monday's game against the Vikings.
Analysis: Despite practicing in full on Friday, Madden will miss his second straight game with a sternum injury. The fullback is not a stat-producer on offense, as he has only three rushes and two catches all season, but the Seahawks could use tight ends Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson to fill Madden's role as a blocker.

Madden (chest) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against Minnesota, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Madden appeared to be clear of the chest injury after practicing fully Friday, but was limited Saturday to earn the questionable tag. The 25-year-old still appears on track to play Monday given he still practiced in some capacity, but remains in danger of missing his second straight game.

Madden (chest) was a full participant in Friday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Analysis: Barring a setback, Madden will be ready to roll for Monday's game versus the Vikings. Madden spends a majority of the time on special teams and is mainly used on the offense as a blocker in short-yardage situations.

Madden (chest) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
Analysis: Madden was unable to practice at any point this week, making it an easy decision for the Seahawks to hold him out. Given that Madden is the only fullback on the roster, coach Pete Carroll may summon one of the team's offensive linemen or tight ends Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson to serve as a lead blocker out of the backfield in short-yardage scenarios.

Madden (chest) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Analysis: Madden did not practice this week after suffering a sternum injury during last week's win over the Panthers. The fullback appears on track to also sit out Sunday's tilt against the 49ers, and a timetable for Madden's recovery remains undisclosed.

Madden -- who left Sunday's game against the Panthers -- suffered a sternum injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Analysis: The severity of Madden's sternum injury is still unknown, though his practice participation this week should paint a clearer picture of his status for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Madden is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Panthers with a shoulder injury, Gregg Bell of The News Tribune reports.
Analysis: Madden is used primarily as a blocker with just three carries all season, but his absence could have a slight impact on the Seahawks' running game if he's held out for the remainder of the second half.
