Seahawks RB Ken Walker will have tests today on what coach Pete Carroll called a "jammed" ankle. The injury —the hope is it's not serious— is different from a sprain because the joint jammed down and not one side or the other. Strange injury. Anyway, tests coming.
DeeJay Dallas had some good run in Walker's absence but also spent time on the sideline with an ankle injury of his own. At one point, Tony Jones was also in the medical tent after taking a huge hit. The injury bomb has exploded in the Seahawks backfield, and we'll need some more information as the week rolls along, as those three will join Rashaad Penny and Travis Homer as other options who have sustained injuries that have kept them off the field this season.
SEA RB Tony Jones - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 14 vs. Carolina Panthers
The injury bug struck the Seahawks' backfield once again, leaving former Saint Tony Jones as the top healthy running back. He rushed 7 times for 14 yards and caught 2 passes for 18 yards last week against the Rams. The reality is Seattle is likely to use a committee and there are a number of backs that could see action for Seattle. But as one of the few healthy backs for Seattle, Jones gets the slight edge for Week 14 against the Panthers if you have to choose a Seahawks running back.
