McKissic spent the first 11 games of last season on injured reserve due to a knee injury, and notched only three rushing attempts for eight yards during the five regular-season games he was healthy. He'll spend the offseason working to earn a pass-catching role as a compliment to Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny.
McKissic caught two of three targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's playoff loss to the Cowboys.
With the Seahawks behind by two scores, McKissic hauled in both of his targets in the two-minute drill, with the second catch coming in the end zone for Russell Wilson's first passing touchdown of the game. McKissic spent the first 11 games of the season on injured reserve with a foot injury, and he garnered just five touches in six games since then. This was McKissic's third season with Seattle, and he'll become a free agent in March. If he sticks around, his pass-catching abilities could complement Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny in 2019, and his role would increase further if Mike Davis opts to sign elsewhere.
McKissic played just one offensive snap and didn't log a carry or target in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.
McKissic didn't record more than three offensive snaps in a game since returning to action in Week 13, but he garnered three carries, including one in the red zone, during that span. The third-year pro's main contribution to the team is on special teams, and that will likely continue into the playoffs, starting Saturday versus the Cowboys.
McKissic took his lone carry for six yards during Sunday's 38-31 win over the Chiefs.
That makes three touches in four games for McKissic this season, with all of them coming in the last two weeks. The second-year back is unlikely to play anything more than a minor supporting role behind Chris Carson, Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny (knee) in Week 17 against the Cardinals and any postseason contests to follow.
McKissic ran for two yards on two carries during Sunday's 26-23 loss to the 49ers.
The low-end output came after two touchless games and a season otherwise lost to a foot injury. The Seahawks have a pretty crowded backfield and so even minimal action for McKissic likely depends on the health of rookie first-round pick Rashaad Penny (knee), whose status is up in the air for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. If Penny is out, McKissic figures to get a handful of touches against the league's worst run defense, surrendering 5.0 yards per opponent carry.
