The big injury news all week for the Seattle Seahawks has been whether or not running back C.J. Prosise would be ready to return from a broken scapula. Well, he apparently won’t be, with Mike Garafolo reporting that he is out but will be available next week if the Hawks win.

Others were questioning the report because Prosise is warming up with the team.
But Prosise confirmed he is out.
The Seahawks will have to play without Prosise, as they have been for the last two months and most of the season, but it’s less of a “loss” than it is the absence of a bonus. Prosise was phenomenal in short work this year but has now missed 12 of a possible 18 games. Seattle will rely on Thomas Rawls, Alex Collins, Marcel Reece, and Russell Wilson in the run game. We’ll see which other players they have active once inactives are announced. The Atlanta Falcons have been completely healthy all week with nobody on the injury report.
The good news for the Seahawks is that Tony McDaniel and Reece will be healthy after injury scares last week against the Detroit Lions.
