Seahawks roster moves: Mike Davis activated, C.J. Prosise to IR

According to a tweet from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, practice squad running back Mike Davis is to be promoted to the 53 man active roster by the Seattle Seahawks.

The move is not entirely unexpected, with the Hawks thin at running back with Eddie Lacy nursing an injured groin and C.J. Prosise once again nursing an ankle injury. Originally drafted out of South Carolina by the San Francisco 49ers in 2015, Davis spent the first two years of his career buried on the 49ers depth chart. While in the Bay Area he accumulated 108 rushing yards and one touchdown on 54 attempts (2.0 yards per carry), with another ten receptions for 63 yards through the air.

Davis fits well within the physical profile the Hawks prefer from their running backs, as he lists at 5’9”, 215 pounds and is athletically nearly identical to many of the other running backs Seattle has had in years past.

And just as this was getting ready to be published, word comes down:

And so the second season of C.J. Prosise’s NFL career ends just as the first one did, after being placed on IR in November.

Thus, barring injury during practice, the running back corps for the Seahawks next Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons should be Thomas Rawls, J.D. McKissic and Mike Davis.
