Seahawks Injury Report: CJ Prosise should play
By Keith Myers
The Seattle Seahawks are expected to have CJ Prosise back for their playoff game against the Falcons. Both teams are surprisingly healthy.
The Seattle Seahawks injury report is out for this week, and the Seahawks are healthy and ready for their game in Atlanta tomorrow. Everyone on the 53-man roster is expected to be available. That won’t bring back Earl Thomas and Tyler Lockett from injured reserve, but at least it means that the team won’t be faced with further issues.
With the game tomorrow, the Seahawks didn’t actually practice today. They had a walkthrough. Practice participation is guess based on nothing and done by a staffer who lacks a sense of humor.
Note: I don’t know the individual who prepared the report. That comment is simply an acknowledgment that there is potential for so much fun with a simulated injury report, and the Seahawks didn’t take advantage of it.
The only name listed today was that of running back CJ Prosise. He’s listed as questionable. That should give him a 50% chance of playing, but the expectation is that he’ll be in uniform Saturday.
Prosise’s status is mostly dependent on him getting cleared by the team doctors. Once that happens, the coaches won’t say no to having such an explosive playmaker available, even if it is for limited plays.
The rest of Seattle’s current roster is fully healthy. Tony McDaniel cleared the concussion protocol and will play. The Seahawks will need McDaniel to help stop Atlanta’s 2-headed rushing attack.
Next: What to watch for as Seattle heads to Atlanta
The other player the Seahawks were worried that they might be without is fullback Marcel Reece. Reece had his foot stepped on last week and the team believed it might have been broken. After the x-rays came back negative, Reece made quick improvement and is set to play this week.
The Falcons are similarly healthy. They also have no one listed on their injury report who is not expected to play.
