Prosise could see an increased role in Seattle's passing game, Andy reports.
Prosise has an opportunity for targets with Doug Baldwin (knee) sidelined for multiple weeks. After not seeing a single carry or target during Week 1's 27-24 loss to the Broncos, an increased role in the passing game could boost Prosise's currently negligible fantasy value. Prosise has proven himself a competent pass catcher in the past, having hauled in 23-of-30 passes for 12.8 yards per catch in his career.
Prosise had zero rushes or targets during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Broncos.
With Mike Davis (coach's decision) inactive, it appeared Prosise may get an opportunity to see some reps. However, Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny combined for 14 carries and 10 targets while Prosise watched from the sidelines.
The oft-injured back took advantage of extended playing time, unsurprisingly standing out with his work in the passing game. Prosise is battling J.D. McKissic and Mike Davis for the pass-catching/ No. 3 running back role in the Seahawks' backfield, and his general unreliability from a health standpoint potentially leaves him with more to prove than his pair of competitors. Prosise's production Saturday certainly is a step in the right direction, and he'll look to build on it during Seattle's third preseason tilt versus the Vikings next Friday.
Prosise (hip) appeared to handle most of the running back reps at Thursday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Absent from the Seahawks' first exhibition last Thursday and a handful of subsequent practices, Prosise returned to drills Wednesday in a limited fashion, ending the session with conditioning as the team scrimmaged. Stepping up to team drills is a great sign that his hip flexor is waning. Barring a setback, he appears in line for a healthy dose of snaps Saturday against the Chargers with Rashaad Penny out 3-4 weeks with a broken finger. Still, Prosise remains behind Chris Carson in the pecking order and is competing with J.D. McKissic for reps as a receiver.
Prosise (hip) was only a partial participant in Wednesday's practice, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Prosise returned to practice in full pads after missing the past week, but he was then pushed off to the side for conditioning work while his teammates scrimmaged. Though his failure to participate in live 11-on-11 drills isn't a great sign, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects the third-year pro to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers, per Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. Prosise is competing with J.D. McKissic for snaps on passing downs, but there may also be some rushing work up for grabs Saturday, especially if Mike Davis (toe) joins Rashaad Penny (finger) on the injured list.
