  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Finds end zone twice in win

    Walker rushed 17 times for 43 yards and two touchdowns and brought in one of two targets for 11 yards in the Seahawks' 37-31 overtime win over the Lions on Sunday.

    Walker encountered tough sledding on the ground against what definitely appears to be an improved Lions run defense, but he made up for it from a fantasy perspective by scoring one- and three-yard touchdowns. He's been the clear lead back in Seattle's ground attack over the first two games, and on Sunday, he outpaced rookie Zach Charbonnet by 13 carries. Walker will next set his sights on the Panthers, who'll come into town for a Week 3 matchup.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Leads backfield in loss

    Walker (groin) rushed 12 times for 64 yards and caught four passes (five targets) for three yards in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Rams.

    Walker dominated the backfield touches over DeeJay Dallas (two carries) and Zach Charbonnet (three carries) while garnering five of the six total passing targets doled out to running backs. Fantasy managers who drafted the oft-injured back should feel enthralled about the hefty workload after he dealt with a preseason groin injury. Walker could be primed for big numbers as Seattle's lead rusher so long as he stays off the injury report.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Cleared for Week 1 takeoff

    Walker (groin) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    There was some concern Thursday after the Seahawks added him to the injury report as a limited participant with a groin injury. Walker missed part of training camp with a groin issue, but that was in late July and early August before he came back in mid-August with no reports of a setback or incident. He's expected to lead the Seattle rushing attack again, though he'll have to look over his shoulder after the team used a second-round pick on a running back for the second straight offseason, bringing in Zach Charbonnet to join Walker in the backfield.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Still dealing with groin injury

    Walker was limited at Thursday's practice due to a groin injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    Walker spent training camp tending to a minor groin strain, which kept him on the sidelines for the entire preseason slate. He eventually logged a full practice on Aug. 17 and even kicked off Week 1 prep with a similar session, but the injury clearly isn't behind him on the eve of the regular season. Thursday's limitations may have been a precautionary measure, but Walker's status on Friday's practice report will be one to watch out for to see if he enters the weekend as questionable.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Slated to start

    Walker is listed as the Seahawks' starting running back on the team's initial Week 1 depth chart.

    Walker dealt with a groin injury to start training camp, but he returned to full practices before the third preseason game. He didn't play at all during the preseason as a precaution. The second-year running back faced competition from rookie second-round pick Zach Charbonnet during camp, but Walker appears set to head into the Sept. 10 opener versus the Rams as the No. 1 back. Waker's placement on the depth chart isn't surprising after he rushed for 1,050 yards and nine touchdowns on 228 carries (4.6 YPC) as a rookie. As long as he remains productive, Walker should retain the edge over Charbonnet in terms of playing time out of the backfield.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Logs full practice Thursday

    Coach Pete Carroll said Walker (groin) participated fully at Thursday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Walker has been dealing with a minor groin strain since the first day of training camp. After returning to practice this past Saturday, he was spotted working in individual and blocking drills Wednesday, but team drills weren't on the docket for him until Thursday, per Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle. It's unclear if the Seahawks will clear Walker to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys, but such a decision may not beome known until shortly before the 10:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Seahawks' Kenneth Walker: Team drills still to come

    Walker (groin) practiced Wednesday but didn't mix into any team drills, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.

    Walker was in a helmet before practice and proceeded to take part in individual work and blocking drills, per Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. However, Walker has yet to be cleared for all activities since returning to practice Saturday. Given that head coach Pete Carroll called Walker "week-to-week" when the running back initially suffered a minor groin strain in the first practice of training camp, the Seahawks likely will continue to take things slow with the second-year pro with an eye toward Week 1. In the meantime, rookie second-round pick Zach Charbonnet and DeeJay Dallas represent the top healthy backfield options for Seattle.
