Seahawks-Colts: C.J. Prosise won’t play due to hip injury

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Third-year Seattle Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise is certainly not guaranteed a roster spot due to his very troubling and extensive injury history. He has only appeared in eleven out of a possible 34 games (postseason included) over the last two seasons, and the former Notre Dame star won’t be playing in Thursday’s preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider says that Prosise “has a little hip injury” that is keeping him out of action at least for this week.

This may explain why Seattle added former Michigan State RB Gerald Holmes to the 90-man roster, waiving WR Marvin Bracy in the process.

You feel for Prosise considering he’s had major trouble staying healthy. He has shown flashes of brilliance at times in limited action, as we saw against the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles in 2016. Unfortunately, preseason hasn’t even started yet and the story of Prosise’s career dating back to his rookie season has unfortunately carried into 2018.
