Best-Case Scenario For Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise Would Be Playoff Return

Update:

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the best-case scenario Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise would be a return for the start of the playoffs after he suffered a scapula fracture on Sunday.

———–

Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that early indications regarding Seahawks rookie RB C.J. Prosise are that he’s likely to miss “upward of eight weeks.”

  • Although, Garafolo adds that it’s possible Prosise could return after six weeks.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters (per John Boyle) that rookie RB C.J. Prosise will be “out a while” with a scapula injury.

However, Carroll did say that there’s a chance Prosise could return later on the year.

Prosise left the game against the Eagles during the first half and he was unable to return for the second half, which led to Thomas Rawls and Troymaine Pope handling the workload.

Seattle cut RB Christine Michael loose because they felt like they were better off moving forward with Prosise and Rawls but it’s obviously disappointing for them to get so little out of Prosise before getting hurt.

Prosise, 22, was taken in the third round of this year’s NFL draft. He’s currently in the first year of his four-year, $3.11 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.

Entering today’s game, Prosise had rushed for 96 yards on 26 carries (3.7 YPC) to go along with 15 receptions for 203 yards receiving and no touchdowns over the course of five games.

We’ll have more regarding Prosise’s injury as the news is available.
