The Seahawks are promoting running back Mike Davis from the practice squad, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Davis adds depth to a running game that ranks 22nd in the league with quarterback Russell Wilson as the team’s leading rusher with 290 yards. C.J. Prosise sprained his ankle Thursday, and Eddie Lacy sat out with a groin injury.

The 49ers selected Davis in the fourth round of the 2015 draft. The Seahawks claimed him off waivers from San Francisco in May. Seattle cut him Sept. 2 but added him to the practice squad.

Davis, 24, played in eight games for the 49ers last season with 19 carries for 50 yards. He also caught three passes for 25 yards and a touchdown.

  1. Eddie Lacy was actually looking good prior to the groin injury. Any narrative to the contrary is false and from someone who was not actually watching the games.

  2. Lacy’s the wrong back for as crappy a line as the Hawks have.

    He’s more of a “get through the hole and punish LBs and DBs” kind of back.

    With no holes, Hawks need a quick, hard to find back who can squirt through no holes.

    Let’s hope it’s Davis.

  3. I like Davis a lot. He is shifty behind the line, and has great explosion when a hole presents itself. He has good top-end speed, and seeks out contact once he is in the secondary. I think he will be a great addition to the Seahawks backfield. I was really hoping he would get to see the field this season.

    Sorry, you have this guy mixed up with someone else. Davis is nothing more than a decent special teams player. He’s not that fast and he’s a fumbler. If you’re looking for 2.6 yards per carry, Davis is your guy.

  5. I was hoping to see Davis a couple weeks ago…finally!

    It’s not like Rawls or Lacy are the answer. Unfortunately with this offensive line Chris Carson was the perfect back. I wanted to see what Mike Davis brought before Carson came back. We can just release everybody else other than J. D. Mckissick as far as I’m concerned. C.J. Prosise breaks as soon as someone touches him.

    I want some young wannabe not some old wish he still was.
