Catches key touchdown

Lockett recorded four receptions on seven targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 16-13 overtime win over the Rams.

Analysis: Lockett has battled a number of injuries in recent weeks, though he managed to tally a key 36-yard touchdown early in the third quarter to knot the score at 13. He also helped set up the Seahawks' game-winning field goal with a 17-yard catch in overtime. Lockett found the end in seven of Seattle's last nine games, and he reached at least eight total touchdowns for the fifth consecutive campaign. If Seattle reaches the postseason, he'll likely remain Geno Smith's favorite target.

Playing Sunday

Lockett (shin) is listed as active Sunday versus the Rams.

Analysis: After sitting out Week 16 due to a broken left index finger, Lockett returned to action last Sunday against the Jets but was in and out of the contest due to a shin injury. The Seahawks held him out of practice Wednesday and Thursday with the same health concern, but his return to drills Friday as a limited participant was followed by coach Pete Carroll telling Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle that Lockett looked good and was slated to play Week 18. With his status now confirmed, Lockett still could operate with some restrictions for a second consecutive game, even though the team must win (with a Packers loss Sunday night) to reach the postseason.

Expected to play

Coach Pete Carroll said Lockett (shin) looked good at Friday's practice and is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Rams, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.

Analysis: Lockett injured his shin in his first game back after missing a week with a broken finger, ultimately seeing only two targets and 31 percent of offensive snaps in the 23-6 win over New York last Sunday. Earlier this week he said he'll play in the must-win game this Sunday, and Carroll is singing the same tune after a successful practice Friday. Cautious fantasy managers may want to stay tuned nonetheless ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, considering Carroll doesn't have the best track record of providing reliable injury information.

Deemed questionable

Lockett (shin) returned to practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Analysis: Lockett returned from finger surgery last week after missing just one game, only to suffer a shin injury that limited his playing time (31 percent snap share) in the win over New York. He said earlier this week that he'll play Sunday, and that does seem to be the most likely outcome even if he isn't at his best. The Seahawks need a win at 4:25 p.m. ET (and a Packers loss in the night game) to make the playoffs.

Stays sidelined at practice

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

Analysis: After having surgery to repair a broken left index finger on Dec. 19, Lockett returned from a one-game absence this past Sunday against the Jets, but he was in and out of the contest with an unknown lower-leg issue. It's been termed a shin injury on the Seahawks' Week 18 practice reports and so far hasn't allowed him to log any on-field work. Coach Pete Carroll told Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune on Wednesday that Lockett expects to be available to play through his bruised shin Sunday versus the Rams, but he seems like a prime candidate to carry a designation into the weekend, something that'll be revealed on Friday's report.

Not practicing

Lockett (leg/finger) won't practice Wednesday but said he will play in Sunday's game against the Rams, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Analysis: Lockett returned from finger surgery to play in Sunday's 23-6 win over the Jets, but he added a lower leg bruise along the way and ultimately saw only two targets while playing less than 40 percent of Seattle's offensive snaps. He could have a bigger role Week 18 even if he's not 100 percent, as the Seahawks need a win (plus a bit of help) to secure the final wild-card spot in the NFC. Lockett likely will try to practice Thursday or Friday to gauge his readiness for the regular-season finale.

Battles through injury in Week 18

Lockett caught both of his targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 23-6 win over the Jets in Week 17.

Analysis: Lockett returned from a one-week absence due to a hand injury, but he picked up a leg injury during the game and ended up playing just 22 snaps (31 percent). While he did return to the game, it will be worth monitoring Lockett's status during the week ahead of the regular-season finale versus the Rams. The Seahawks are still in the playoff hunt, so if Lockett is active, we should expect him to handle his typical role.

Jan 2, 2023 3:17 PM EST


Returns to game

Lockett, who had exited Sunday's game against the Jets with a leg injury, was subsequently able to return to the contest,Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: After having gone to the locker room near the end of the first half, Lockett re-entered the game for the first play of the fourth quarter, per Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune. Prior to his exit from the contest, the wideout had caught both of his targets for 15 yards.

Jan 1, 2023 3:33 PM EST


Picks up leg injury

Lockett sustained a leg injury during Sunday's game against the Jets.

Analysis: Lockett went to the locker room near the end of the first half and wasn't on the sideline after the break before the Seahawks revealed the reason for his absence. He was back in action Sunday following a one-game absence due to surgery to repair a broken left index finger, but that issue didn't force him to exit Week 17. If Lockett is unable to return, he'll finish with two catches (on two targets) for 15 yards.

Jan 1, 2023 3:05 PM EST


Back in action Week 17

Lockett (hand) is active for Sunday's game versus the Jets.

Analysis: Lockett underwent surgery to repair a broken left index finger on Dec. 19 and didn't suit up Week 16 at Kansas City. Having said that, he put himself in a position to return sooner than expected by capping Week 17 prep with a limited practice Thursday and a full session Friday. It's unclear if Lockett will be able to handle his normal workload, but he's been good for at least eight targets in eight of 14 appearances on the campaign, which, if it comes to pass again Sunday, may be enough to produce against the Jets' fifth-ranked pass defense.

Jan 1, 2023 11:39 AM EST


Expected to face Jets

Lockett (hand) is expected to play Sunday versus the Jets, Ian Rapoport of NFL Networkreports.

Analysis: Lockett is expected to return from a broken left index finger injury, for which he required surgery, after missing just one game. He upgraded to a full practice participant Friday, and the wideout's status will be made official prior to Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. With Marquise Goodwin (shoulder/wrist) having been placed on IR on Saturday, Lockett's presence would stand to provide a notable boost for Seattle's offense against the Jets' stingy defense.

Jan 1, 2023 2:09 AM EST


Plans to play

Lockett (hand) plans to play in Sunday's game against the Jets, though he acknowledged Friday that the final decision will be made by coaches and trainers, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.

Analysis: John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site and Brady Henderson of ESPN.com suggest Lockett is likely to play, with his upgrade to full practice participation Friday being another hint in that direction. Lockett returned to practice Thursday as a limited participant after undergoing surgery Dec. 19 on a broken left index finger, and he now appears more likely than not to suit up for the final two games of the regular season as Seattle tries to hold on to a wild-card spot. Fellow Seahawks wideout Marquise Goodwin (shoulder/wrist) is listed as doubtful ahead of the 4:05 ET kickoff Sunday.

Dec 30, 2022 2:43 PM EST


Questionable for Sunday

Lockett (hand) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.

Analysis: Lockett practiced Thursday, on a limited basis, for the first time since undergoing surgery Dec. 19 to address a broken index finger. He's more likely to drop the ball or fumble if he plays, but the Seahawks could use him even at less than 100 percent as they battle for a playoff spot. Their inactive list could be the subject of a lot of focus ahead of Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff, as RB Kenneth Walker (ankle) and WR Marquise Goodwin (shoulder/wrist) also are listed as questionable.

Dec 30, 2022 1:34 PM EST


Mixes into drills Thursday

Lockett (hand) was a limited practice participant Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Thursday's activity marks Lockett's first since undergoing surgery on a fractured left index finger on Monday, Dec. 19. He thus has progressed since Wednesday, when he "did everything" and "looked good" during the Seahawks' morning walkthrough, coach Pete Carroll told Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, but ultimately went down as a DNP on the first injury report of Week 17. Lockett was dealing with swelling and had stitches in his left hand as of Wednesday, but with Thursday's return to practice, he's now trending in a positive direction ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets.

Dec 29, 2022 4:33 PM EST


Officially DNP on Wednesday

Lockett (hand) didn't practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll relayed to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times earlier Wednesday that Lockett "did everything" in the team's walkthrough and "looked great." Per Brady Henderson of ESPN.com, Lockett also took part in warmups, but the fact his left hand still is enduring swelling and has stitches didn't allow him to mix into any drills. There's an optimistic tone from the Seahawks that Lockett will be able to play Sunday against the Jets, which he may be able to do without practicing this week. Ultimately, his status could come down to a game-time decision ahead of a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.

Dec 28, 2022 4:45 PM EST


'Looked great,' per Carroll

Coach Pete Carroll said that Lockett "did everything" at Wednesday's walkthrough and "looked great" after undergoing surgery on a broken index finger last Monday, Dec. 19, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Lockett sustained the fracture Week 15 and didn't suit up this past Saturday at Kansas City, but he now appears to be in a good spot as the Seahawks prepare for Sunday's game against the Jets. Carroll didn't tip has hand regarding Lockett's chances to play Week 17, but he also said, "We'll see," when asked if it's a possibility. Wednesday's injury report will reveal how much, if any, activity Lockett was able to handle at Seattle's first official practice of the week.

Dec 28, 2022 12:40 PM EST


Week 17 status TBD

The status of Lockett (hand) for Sunday's game against the Jets remains unclear at this stage, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Per Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic, Lockett underwent a finger/hand procedure last Monday that went "perfect," according to coach Pete Carroll. While the wideout missed this past Saturday's loss to the Chiefs, it's possible that he may be back as soon as this weekend, with Carroll suggesting that Lockett could potentiality face the Jets without practicing this week.

Dec 26, 2022 3:23 PM EST


Week 17 return still possible

Lockett underwent surgery on his broken index finger Monday, with Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll noting afterward that the receiver could have a chance at returning to action as soon as Week 17 against the Jets, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: While Lockett's finger injury is significant enough to prevent him from playing Saturday in Kansas City, Carroll relayed that the 30-year-old's surgery went "perfect," leaving the door open for him to miss just one game. The Seahawks will likely have a better sense of what direction Lockett is trending in for the game against the Jets when the team reconvenes for its first Week 17 practice next Wednesday. Lockett's absence for the Week 16 game likely leaves Marquise Goodwin and Laquon Treadwell in line to serve as the Seahawks' Nos. 2 and 3 wideouts behind DK Metcalf, who could take on a larger target share than usual without Lockett on hand.

Dec 20, 2022 12:51 PM EST


Could return Week 17 after surgery?

Lockett (finger) likely will have surgery and could be back as soon as Week 17, though a return timeline won't be available until after the procedure, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Lockett suffered a spiral crack in his first metcarpal during the final drive of Thursday's 21-13 loss to San Francisco. He hopes to miss only one game and return for the final two weeks of the regular season as Seattle fights for a wild-card spot, but it sounds like there's not actually a timeline yet and all that's known for sure is he'll miss at least one game when the Seahawks face the Chiefs in Week 16.

Dec 16, 2022 9:46 AM EST


Suffers broken finger

Lockett broke a bone in his index finger during Thursday's 21-13 loss to the 49ers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Lockett played the majority of the game and tied for the team lead with seven receptions and paced the receiving corps with 68 yards. However, he exited the contest late and will be sidelined for some period of time. Coach Pete Carroll declined to give further detail, though he said Lockett hopes to return for the team's Week 17 matchup against the Jets, per Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle.
