    10/11/15CBMarcus BurleyHANDOUTThe Seahawks have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Super Bowl: B.J. Daniels, Marcus Burley, Patrick Lewis, Keavon Milton, David King, Garry Gilliam and Kevin Norwood, the team announced.
    10/11/15DEDemarcus DobbsSHOULDERDOUBTFULThe Seahawks re-signed defensive lineman Demarcus Dobbs to a one-year contract on Sunday.
    10/11/15RBFred JacksonANKLEQUESTIONABLEPete 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.

    10/11/15WRRicardo LocketteSHORTNESS OF BREATHPROBABLEThe Seahawks re-signed wide receiver Ricardo Lockette on Wednesday, the team announced.
    10/11/15RBMarshawn LynchHAMSTRINGOUTSeattle Seahawkscoach Pete Carroll said he expects running back Marshawn Lynch (hamstring) to return for Week 6 against the Panthers, the Seattle Times reports.

    Carroll said Lynch might be physically capable of playing in Sunday's game against the Bengals, adding that the team ruled out its star running back because it was worried that a re-injury could lead to an extended absence. Thomas Rawls is thus in line to lead the Seattle backfield in a tough road matchup against the Bengals, with Fred Jackson (questionable-ankle) potentially available as a complement. If Jackson sits, the Seahawks will likely sign another player and/or use fullback Derrick Coleman as the top backup. Despite the internal optimism, Lynch can still be considered questionable for Week 6.

    10/11/15DTBrandon MebaneGROINPROBABLESeahawks general manager John Schneider said Thursday that nose tackle Brandon Mebane is "doing well" in his recovery from a torn hamstring, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    10/11/15SRicardo AllenKNEEPROBABLEAllen (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Washington after practicing fully all week.

    Allen looks like a go this week, but with 17 tackles and one interception over his first three contests, he's only an option in deeper IDP formats.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15RBTevin ColemanRIBSPROBABLEFalcons backup running back Tevin Coleman (ribs) will play Sunday against the Redskins.

    Coleman is officially listed as probable, and the team announced Friday that he'll make his return from a two-game absence. Given how Devonta Freeman played during that absence, Coleman will likely work in a complementary role behind his red-hot teammate.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15LBJustin DurantELBOWOUTFalcons linebacker Justin Durant (elbow) has been ruled out for the Sunday game against Washington.

    The Falcons will be without their leading tackler after Durant sprained his elbow during the win against the Texans last Sunday. With the 30-year-old officially ruled out, Joplo Bartu will likely get the start in his place. Bartu recorded three tackles (two solo) in 70 defensive snaps against the Texans.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15WRLeonard HankersonTHUMBPROBABLEHankerson (thumb) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Washington after practicing fully Friday.

    Through four games, Hankerson -- who caught six passes for 103 yards and a TD in Week 4 -- has racked up 17 catches for 241 yards and two scores overall. The 26-year-old wideout should have no problem finding motivation in Week 5, as he'll be facing Washington, the team that drafted him in 2011.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15WRJulio JonesTOE, HAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEJones (toe/hamstring) was limited in practice Friday and is listed by the Falcons as questionable for Sunday's game against Washington.

    Per the report, Jones' reps were cut down on Friday to provide the wideout with added rest, but his status for Week 5's contest doesn't appear in doubt, a notion supported by ESPN's Vaughn McClure, who realys that Jones "was running and cutting fine while doing individual drills" Friday. To be sure though, it's still worth verifying the wideout's status in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15LBBrooks ReedGROINPROBABLEFalcons linebacker Brooks Reed (groin) is starting Sunday against Houston.

    In his debut with Atlanta, he will line up versus his former team at strong-side linebacker, where he'll act as more of a pass rusher than a tackle machine.

    (Updated 10/04/2015)
    10/11/15TEJacob TammeCONCUSSIONPROBABLETamme (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Washington after practicing fully all week.

    Tamme is on track to return to action in Week 5, though we'd like to see him turn in a full and productive game before recommending as a fantasy lineup option.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    10/11/15WRRoddy WhiteNOT INJURY RELATEDPROBABLEWhite (non-injury related) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Washington after practicing fully Friday.

    After having recorded just two catches on five targets over his last three games, White is a speculative play in Week 5, with Leonard Hankerson having seemingly supplanted him, for now at least, as the Falcons' No. 2 wideout target behind Julio Jones.
