Reece was released by the Seahawks on Saturday. Entering his eighth season, Reece could be one of those guys to land somewhere else based solely off his tenured career. The long-time Raider was unable to edge out Tre Madden for the starting fullback spot but could hold value as a veteran leader in another locker room. As far as his fantasy value is concerned, that seems to be close to nonexistent at the moment.
Reece (foot) does not appear on the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Reece injured his foot in last weekend's tilt with the Lions. However, after practicing both Tuesday and now Wednesday, he appears on track to suit up Sunday against the Falcons.
Reece (foot) is practicing Tuesday and looks to be in good shape according to head coach Pete Carroll, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports. Reece suffered a foot injury during Saturday's wild-card win over the Lions, but it appears as if the veteran will be ready Saturday's tilt with the Falcons. Look for more updates to come throughout the practice week. Will Tukuafu (concussion) landed on injured reserve earlier in the season, leaving the Seahakws with no backup fullback, should Reece be ruled out.
Reece suffered a foot injury during Saturday's playoff win over the Lions, and although coach Pete Carroll said it wasn't a break, Reece's status for this Saturday's divisional round game against the Falcons is uncertain, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Reece got his foot stepped on, which resulted in soreness after the incident Saturday. Despite not suffering a break, Reece may be limited during practice this week and his status for Saturday sits in question. As Seattle's starting fullback, Reece's biggest fantasy impact comes in the form of his blocking for running back Thomas Rawls.
The Seahawks signed Reece on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Reece opened the season needing to log three of the four remaining absences to fulfill his suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs. Once completed, though, the Raiders cut the fullback loose on Sep. 26, and he's remained on the free-agent market in the meantime. Reece is likely only a stop-gap option for starting FB Will Tukuafu, who became entrenched in the concussion protocol this weekend.
