Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls fibula injury is more serious than the Seahawks initially thought, according to HC Pete Carroll.

Carroll said Rawls will be out for a few weeks.

Ian Rapoport reported it's a hairline fracture.

Fantasy Impact:

Rawls' likely absence means it will be the Christine Michael show for the next few weeks. Michael resigned with the Seahawks late last season after Rawls broke his ankle; he had been traded to and released by the Cowboys earlier in the year. The Seahawks spoke during the preseason of a "reawakening" for Michael, and he's looked excellent in the early going of the season.

Carroll: Sitting QB Russell Wilson Week 4 'a consideration'

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll has confirmed that quarterback Russell Wilson has an MCL sprain in his left knee and may miss Sunday's matchup against the Jets at MetLife Stadium.

Asked on 710 ESPN Seattle if he would sit Wilson Sunday to give the quarterback more time to heal heading into a Week 5 bye, Carroll wouldn't discount the possibility.

"I think obviously there's a consideration for that," he said Monday. "With an extra couple weeks it would help everybody, if they could sit out for a while and they could all get healed. But we'll see what happens. We're going to do the right thing. We're going to make sure that we're very careful. He's an extraordinary person. We have to listen very carefully because he's going to will it and feel that he can do everything. We just got to see through it and make sure we're supporting him properly to help protect him from himself."

In fairness, Carroll said sitting everyone a week leading up to the bye would help, so it seems like he tried to get around the specific question about Wilson. But the fact the team has a bye in Week 5 and Wilson has had an ankle and knee injury already this season, it may be what the team decides to do. We likely won't know more until later in the week. Trevone Boykin would get the start if Wilson is out Week 4.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has sprained left knee

ESPN - [Full Article]

QB Russell Wilson suffered what Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll called a left knee sprain and will have an MRI to determine its severity.

Wilson missed one snap but then re-entered the game to finish the drive. After Seattle kicked a field goal, teammates made sure Wilson wasn't going to talk his way into playing through pain.

Fantasy Impact:

Pro Football Talk had a story that Wilson tweeted "God is Good! #Greatful" late last night, which perhaps one can assume means his MRI came back fine. The best-case scenario for the Seahawks is Wilson is able to play next week against the Jets, even if he's at less than 100 percent; and after the trip to New York, he gets the bye to heal up. Of course, with the team at 2-1, it's possible they try to rest him before the bye to get extra time to heal.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson appears to have left knee injury

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson suffered a left knee injury in the third quarter with the Seahawks leading big.

Wilson was pulled down awkwardly while being sacked by San Francisco's Eli Harold with 10 minutes to go in the third quarter. Harold was flagged for a horse collar tackle on the play as he fell on Wilson's lower leg. Wilson stayed down for a few moments before hoping up and limping around. He missed one play on that series - the first missed play of his career due to injury - but returned to throw one more pass, a 10-yard completion to Doug Baldwin.

Wilson was on the Seattle bench for its next offensive possession having a brace put on his left knee after a San Francisco turnover led to a quick change of possession. Trevone Boykin took over and Steven Hauschka's third field goal gave Seattle a 30-3 lead.

Fantasy Impact:

The knee injury comes on top of Wilson playing the last two weeks after suffering a sprained right ankle in the opener against Miami. Wilson was said to have more mobility coming into this week with the ankle, but the knee injury at least puts in question his status for the Seahawks next game.

Seahawks look to rediscover running game

Saturday, September 24, 2016, 10:08pm

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Seattle coaches and players haven’t been shy about pointing to the lagging running game as the most significant reason the offense has a mere one touchdown in 22 possessions and has scored 15 points, fewer than all but one other team in the NFL.

“It (the running game) gives us balance and we really miss that,’’ said offensive-line coach and run-game coordinator Tom Cable. “. … We need more consistency (in the running game) because it sets up the big ball, the play-action (pass) and all those things.”

Thomas Rawls, though, is listed as doubtful to play Sunday after suffering a leg injury last week at Los Angeles, after he had been held to the shocking total of minus-7 yards on seven carries.

That will leave the bulk of the carries to Christine Michael, who despite being listed behind Rawls entering last week’s game has been Seattle’s most effective ball carrier this season. He has 126 yards on 25 carries.

Fantasy Impact:

The Seahawks’ running game has looked nothing like its old self. Seattle is averaging 89.5 yards rushing in two games, 18th in the NFL, after finishing fourth or better in each of the past four seasons. Seattle’s 3.2 yards per rushing attempt is even worse, tied for 25th.
