Prosise could line up at receiver and see an increased role in Seattle's passing game with Doug Baldwin (knee) expected to miss multiple weeks, Andy Patton of USA Today reports. Prosise didn't seem much work behind the top two running backs (Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny) during the Seahawks' 27-24 loss to the Broncos in Week 1, logging just seven offensive snaps and earning no touches. While it appears unlikely Prosise will see much involvement in the run game anytime soon, more action out wide would only help his currently negligible fantasy value. Prosise has proven himself to be an adept pass catcher in the past, hauling in 23 of 30 career targets and gaining 12.8 yards per reception.
Prosise may have a role in Sunday's game at Denver, Andy Patton of the Associated Press reports. Prosise is somewhat buried on the depth chart behind Chris Carson, 2018 first-round pick Rashaad Penny and Mike Davis, making it difficult to envision a vast number of touches in any given game. However, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer intimated Friday that he's willing to go with the "hot hand" late in games, according to Brady Henderson of ESPN.com. While Prosise has a checkered injury history through two pro seasons, he's proved himself to be a competent pass catcher, hauling in 23 of 30 passes at a clip of 12.8 yards per catch.
Prosise should be assured of a roster spot after J.D. McKissic suffered a Jones fracture in his foot, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Prosise already seemed to have the edge over McKissic for a pass-catching role out of the backfield. This injury leaves no doubt about the winner of the competition, as McKissic is expected to be out for 4-to-6 weeks. The Seahawks may want to bring in some insurance, considering the oft-injured Prosise has missed 21 games in two NFL seasons. He did look sharp in Saturday's preseason loss to the Chargers, taking three carries for 12 yards and catching all six of his targets for 35 yards.
Prosise (hip) rushed three times for 12 yards and caught all six targets for 35 yards in the Seahawks' 24-14 preseason loss to the Chargers on Saturday. The biggest thing for Prosise is staying healthy. He didn't do much with his nine touches, but at least he didn't get hurt. If he makes it through camp without any more injuries, he'll make the team, as the Seahawks still believe in his upside. More injuries and missed time, though, and it wouldn't be surprising if Seattle finally gives up on him.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Prosise (hip) will play in Saturday's game against the Chargers, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Prosise returned to practice Wednesday with some limitations and was cleared for full-team drills Thursday. The progress puts him on track for Saturday, though his extensive history of injury setbacks means it won't be a sure thing until he actually takes a snaps. Prosise and J.D. McKissic are competing for a pass-catching role, with the loser in danger of missing out on the 53-man roster.
