The much-hoped for return of C.J. Prosise for the divisional round got some good news on Monday, as head coach Pete Carroll said on 710 ESPN that the rookie running back would test out his injured scapula on Tuesday in practice. Carroll said that they aren’t banking on Prosise being able to play on Saturday in the Seattle Seahawks playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons, but if he responds well in practice, they’ll be prepared to use him as normal without any issues.

Prosise had 30 carries for 172 yards and 17 catches for 208 yards in six regular season games, though in two of those games he was really limited. He’s arguably the most dangerous weapon on an offense with Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin, having a run for 72 yards and receptions of 43 and 38 yards despite just 47 touches. He averaged 8.1 yards per touch.

On the downside, fullback Marcel Reece is questionable with a foot injury.

For the Falcons, head coach Dan Quinn said this week that basically everyone who isn’t on injured reserve will be able to go this week.
