Willson had just 15 catches for 153 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games in 2017. Willson had one of the worst statistical seasons of his career in 2017, tying his career-low of 15 catches and putting up the second fewest yards of his career. He's struggled to get many targets ever since the Seahawks acquired Jimmy Graham in 2015. Willson could see his usage increase in 2018 if Graham leaves Seattle in free agency.
Willson (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Willson suffered a minor ankle sprain in Thursday's practice that prevented him from taking part in Friday's session. While Willson could be a tad hindered by the injury in Week 17, he's normally relegated to blocking duties anyway. He hasn't caught more than three passes or surpassed 30 receiving yards in a game since Week 3.
Willson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. According to Boyle, Willson suffered a minor sprain in Thursday's practice that forced him to sit out Friday's session. The 27-year-old's status for Sunday's contest seems likely to be determined in pregame warmups.
Willson was a limited participant at the Seahawks' practice Thursday with an ankle injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Willson was a new addition to the injury report Thursday, but his limited participation suggests the injury isn't overly serious. Friday's practice session should provide a better idea of the 27-year-old's potential availability for the regular-season finale.
Willson caught one of two targets for 26 yards in a loss to the Rams on Sunday. Tight ends are pretty much an afterthought in the Seattle offense -- even Jimmy Graham doesn't do much between the 20s. Unless Graham gets hurt, Willson isn't likely to see more than 2-3 targets per game.
