Seahawks RB Alex Collins ends up not practicing on Thursday after all

Remember when Pete Carroll said a few hours ago that Alex Collins would practice after coming out of the Pittsburgh Steelers game all banged up?

Well it didn’t happen. The first practice report for the Seattle Seahawks’ Monday Night Football matchup with the New Orleans Saints lists Collins and Damien Lewis as DNPs, whereas Sidney Jones and (miraculously) Darrell Taylor were limited participants.

Collins is listed as having a groin injury, so a Thursday DNP may be worth monitoring given how shaky Seattle’s running back situation is. Rashaad Penny is expected to come off of injured reserve and play on Monday, marking his first appearance since getting injured on opening day versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Limited participation in practice for both Brandon Shell and Cedric Ogbuehi is also worth monitoring, as those are the 1-2 on the depth chart at right tackle. Ogbuehi was inactive last Sunday whereas Shell did have an ankle injury against the Steelers.
