    Seahawks' Fred Jackson: Backup role

    Jackson, who had six touches for 22 yards Sunday against the 49ers, will continue in a limited backup role to Thomas Rawls while Marshawn Lynch is out with an injury. Lynch is not expected to play Week 12 and could be out longer. Jackson will relieve Rawls from time to time, but he won't get significant touches as long as Rawls is healthy. If Rawls were to go down while Lynch is out, then Jackson would have fantasy value, though at 34 he doesn't have the upside of the other two.

    Seahawks RB Fred Jackson doesn't register carry against Carolina

    Seahawks running back Fred Jackson caught two passes off of two targets for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Despite it being Marshawn Lynch's first game back in action, Jackson did not record a single carry in the contest. Rookie Thomas Rawls appears established as the backup behind Lynch, leaving Jackson as the intermitent receiving threat out of the backfield. Through six games, Jackson has more catches, 12, than carries, 10, and does not appear to be worth having on a fantasy roster.

    Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch cleared for Sunday

    Seahawks premier back Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) has been cleared for Sunday against Carolina. Lynch was able to practice fully both Thursday and Friday, so look for him to head the backfield with Thomas Rawls and Fred Jackson backing up.

    Seahawks RB Fred Jackson totals 34 yards in loss to Bengals

    Seahawks running back Fred Jackson (ankle) rushed twice for five yards and had three catches on three targets for 29 yards Sunday against the Bengals. Less than a week removed from suffering a high-ankle sprain, Jackson was back on the field Sunday, though very much in a reserve role behind starter Thomas Rawls, who rushed 23 times for 169 yards and a touchdown. Despite Rawls' huge day, it was Jackson who played the opening drive of overtime, though he ended up with little to show for it. Whether it's Rawls or Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) starting, Jackson will continue to be used sparingly in the rushing game, and the Seahawks' passing attack doesn't lend itself to significant receiving yard totals.

    Seahawks RB Fred Jackson active Sunday

    Seahawks aging running back Fred Jackson (ankle) is listed as active Sunday at Cincinnati. While Jackson is gutting out a high-ankle sprain, it's difficult to see the veteran back surpass the three carries and two receptions that he received with Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) out in Week 4 against the Lions. In his stead, Thomas Rawls will again head the backfield.

    Seahawks RB Fred Jackson expected to play Sunday

    Pete Carroll said Seahawks running back Fred Jackson (ankle) will likely play in the Sunday game against the Bengals, per Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. His high-ankle sprain apparently isn't too serious, as he's expected to take the field just six days after sustaining the injury. This situation would normally bring about skepticism, but if the Seahawks wanted to be deceptive about their Week 5 backfield plans, they wouldn't have ruled out Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) on Friday.

    Seahawks' Fred Jackson: Listed as questionable

    Jackson (ankle) returned to a limited practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Cincinnati. The Seahawks have yet to sign a fourth running back, even though Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) has been ruled out and Jackson is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. The lack of a transaction might seem to hint at Jackson suiting up, but it's also quite possible the Seahawks are comfortable using fullback Derrick Coleman as a backup running back. Given that he'll be six days removed from suffering a high-ankle sprain, Jackson still seems unlikely to play in Sunday's game. Even if he's active, it's possible he'll just be around as an emergency backup. Thomas Rawls is set to dominate the Week 5 snaps in Seattle's backfield.

    Seahawks upgrade RB Marshawn Lynch to limited participation

    The Seahawks changed their Thursday injury report to list featured back Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) as a limited participant. Originally listed as a non-participant both Wednesday and Thursday, Lynch will likely be listed as questionable on Friday's injury report. He may be headed for a game-time decision for a tough matchup in Cincinnati, but the Seahawks do at least have a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. With Fred Jackson (ankle) likely out, Thomas Rawls could take on a three-down role, as the Seahawks still haven't signed a fourth running back.

    Seahawks RB Fred Jackson has high-ankle sprain

    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Wednesday that running back Fred Jackson has a high-ankle sprain. By all accounts, Jackson was trending toward that diagnosis and its accompanying recovery timetable of at least a few weeks. With the injury confirmed, Marshawn Lynch is poised to take over his rightful place as the Seahawks' starting running back, as long as he continues to progress through his hamstring injury.

    Seahawks RB Fred Jackson reportedly has high ankle sprain

    The Seahawks believe running back Fred Jackson suffered a high ankle sprain, John Boyle of the team's official site reports. The diagnosis hasn't been confirmed, but if it is indeed a high ankle sprain, Jackson will likely be out for at least a week or two. He was having a nice game as the passing-down back against the Lions on Monday, gaining 54 yards on just five touches (two catches) in Marshawn Lynch's (hamstring) absence. Thomas Rawls is now the only healthy running back on Seattle's roster.
