Coach Pete Carroll expects Prosise (abdomen) to be fully healthy by the start of Seattle's offseason training program April 15, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. "C.J. really needed the surgery that he had," Carroll said. "It was a little more extended than we thought, but he'll be back from that. That's about an eight-week recovery or something like that so he'll be fine." Prosise has appeared in16 of a possible 48 regular-season games since the Seahawks tabbed him with a third-round draft selection in 2016. While the Seahawks haven't completely given up on him, it's possible Prosise could face an uphill battle for a roster spot in 2019 given his lack of reliability. A former wide receiver, the hope is that Prosise can be effectively utilized as a receiving option out of the backfield who could complement a lead runner like Chris Carson or Rashaad Penny.
Coach Pete Carroll said Prosise is slated for abdominal surgery, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Prosise initially dealt with a core muscle injury in September and has been a near-regular on Seahawks inactive lists as a healthy scratch for most of the season. Last week, he landed on the injury report with what was called an abdominal issue but later clarified to be "an abdomen/groin/hip-flexor thing" by Carroll, per Condotta. With surgery on tap, Prosise will soon focus his efforts on getting healthy. He has one year remaining on his rookie contract, so despite frequent bouts with injury in three seasons as a pro, Prosise is a candidate to stick around in 2019 in a backfield that has been dominated by Chris Carson (finger), Mike Davis and rookie Rashaad Penny during the current campaign.
Prosise (abdomen) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports. Prosise was already ruled out for a third consecutive week due to what head coach Pete Carroll described as "an abdomen/groin/hip-flexor thingy," which is confusing as it is concerning. The 2016 third-round pick was thought to be a candidate for a third-down role entering the 2018 season, but a litany of injuries and poor timing never allowed for that possibility to occur. With a smorgasbord of nondescript running backs already on the roster, there's a possibility Prosise may have played his last game with the Seahawks, but with one year remaining on his rookie deal, it's more likely the team simply waits until closer to training camp to make any sort of roster decision on the 24-year-old.
Prosise (abdomen), who has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, doesn't have a clear timetable for a return and could be a candidate for injured reserve, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Prosise will be sidelined for a third straight game this weekend, though the previous two absences were the result of healthy inactives. Coach Pete Carroll labeled the latest injury setback to befall Prosise as "an abdomen/groin/hip-flexor thingy," a rather nebulous description that doesn't portend a quick recovery. Considering Prosise has historically been a slow healer since entering the league in 2016 and held a minimal role when available this season, shifting him to IR would be a good way for the organization to keep him in the fold without having to release him outright. There's seemingly little upside for the Seahawks to stash a banged-up Prosise on the roster for an extended period as a fifth running back, especially now that another pass-catching specialist in J.D. McKissic (foot) has returned from IR.
Prosise (abdomen) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports. Prosise was added to Thursday's injury report with an abdomen issue and didn't make enough progress Friday to avoid a third straight absence. With the Seahawks activating pass-catching back J.D. McKissic (foot) from injured reserve earlier this week, Prosise's time with Seattle could soon come to an end if he isn't shuttled to injured reserve.
