Prosise could be at risk of losing his spot on the Seahawks' 53-man roster after coach Pete Carroll named fellow running back J.D. McKissic (foot) a candidate to return from injured reserve ahead of the Week 12 matchup with the Panthers, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Even with McKissic sidelined since the preseason, Prosise has struggled to the see the field behind Chris Carson, Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny. Prosise has appeared in just five of the Seahawks' 10 games, logging 30 offensive snaps and four touches in total. Much like McKissic, Prosise offers his most value as a pass-catching option out of the backfield, so it wouldn't be optimal for the Seahawks to keep two players on the roster with overlapping skill sets. With that in mind, there's a good chance Prosise could find himself as the odd man out if the Seahawks are comfortable with where McKissic is at on the health front.
Prosise (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Thursday against the Packers.
With Chris Carson ready to retake the starting running back role, Prosise will revert to a healthy scratch for the fifth time in nine games this season. As long as the trio of Carson, Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny stay healthy, Prosise is destined to be in street clothes on gameday.
Prosise rushed once for minus-3 yards in Sunday's 36-31 loss to the Rams.
It was Prosise's only carry in five games, and it was forgettable. Prosise won't see much more work this year behind Chris Carson (hip), Rashaad Penny and Mike Davis.
Prosise is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers due to a coach's decision.
Prosise has been reduced to a bench role this season following the emergence of Chris Carson as the lead back. Buried on the depth chart, Prosise is unlikely to be a fixture of the Seattle offense moving forward.
Prosise logged zero offensive snaps in Sunday's 28-14 win over the Lions.
The Seahawks have shown a commitment to run the football, but in Prosise's return from two straight healthy scratches, he wasn't part of those plans. Chris Carson and Mike Davis have dominated the snaps lately, and even rookie first-round pick Rashaad Penny was dropped from the offensive rotation in Week 8 as well.
