C.J. Prosise could return next week if Seahawks advance

If the Seahawks are able to advance with a win over the Detroit Lions on Saturday, they could see the return of running back C.J. Prosise to their lineup.

Prosise will almost certainly miss a seventh straight game for Seattle this weekend due to a fractured scapula suffered in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles in November. But if the Seahawks advance to face the Atlanta Falcons next week, Prosise will have a chance of being available.

“A very encouraging report today,” head coach Pete Carroll said on Tuesday. “He had a CT scan that was really positive. He’s working hard and running hard. We’re going to see what happens. If we have the good fortune of winning this week, we’ll take a look at next week. He’s going to run really hard this week with the thought that he’s going to practice next week. If we can give him that opportunity it would be great.”

Prosise has been plagued by injuries ever since being drafted in May. He had a hip flexor in OTAs, a hamstring strain in training camp, a broken wrist bone in Seattle’s season opener and then the broken shoulder-blade in November. Prosise has carried 30 times for 172 yards and a touchdown, and caught 17 passes for 208 yards in six games played.

“C.J.’s absence has been obvious. We were thrilled about that kid and we’re going to really look forward to the future with him,” Carroll said.

  1. Hopefully he comes back for the Atlanta game. That would be huge for us. Atlanta will be looking to demolish us after the game against us in the regular season.

  2. I’d love it if Prosise can return for the Atlanta game. He is an exceptional talent that will directly help our anemic running attack. With his talent, we could very well end up in the Super Bowl again.

    Come on, Prosise–get healthy, stay healthy, and remain on the field. You are no good to us injured.

  3. C.J. Prosise please keep drinking more milk and taking Calcium to make your bones STRONGER!

  4. With Rawls healthy they could finally have the backfield they envisioned,Rawls starting with CJ playing on 3rd down.Will need every ounce of O they can get against ATL.
