Prosise (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for about six weeks, but Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the running back could be activated from injured reserve at some point during the postseason, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Prosise was placed on IR on Tuesday after spraining his left ankle in the Seahawks' Week 10 win over the Cardinals. While the roster move will keep Prosise unavailable for at least eight weeks to knock him out for the rest of the regular season, Carroll said it could come down to a race between Prosise and fellow running back Chris Carson (ankle) to receive one of the Seahawks' "designated-for-return" tags. Like Prosise, Carson is trending toward being fully health by late December, and the return of either player might inject life into a Seattle running attack that has struggled this season and isn't expected to be particularly effective while both are sidelined.
