Monday Round-Up: 53-man roster, practice squad set; Bruce Irvin back at practice
NFL Media Senior Fantasy Analyst Michael Fabiano shares which running backs fantasy owners should target after the top options are off the board
With the Seahawks final preseason game on Thursday night, the team combined Competition Wednesday and Turnover Thursday into one day, hopefully preparing themselves for later in the year when they play on Thursday night in the regular season.
Due to the shortened week, the team doubled up on a Tuesday practice of preseason week four with the themes of "Competition Wednesday" and "Turnover Thursday".
A player-by-player look at the 2015 Seattle Seahawks 75-man roster. The Seahawks must trim their roster to 53 players by 1 p.m. PT on Saturday, Sept. 5.
Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, September 1 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

The Seahawks filled all but two of the 10 available slots on their practice squad yesterday, bringing back eight players that were with the team through preseason - tight end RaShaun Allen, running back Demitrius Bronson, quarterback B.J. Daniels, offensive tackle Nate Isles, wide receiver Chris Matthews, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, and safeties Terrance Parks and Steven Terrell.

Bruce Irvin Back At Practice
Linebacker Bruce Irvin, the team's first-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, donned shoulder pads and a helmet during Sunday's Seahawks workout. Irvin had been held out through training camp and all preseason games while rehabbing the hip he had surgically repaired this offseason. It was Irvin's first on-field action since Super Bowl XLVIII.
Best Of Luck To...
Linebacker Korey Toomer, fullback Kiero Small, offensive lineman Caylin Hauptmann, center Patrick Lewis, and defensive end Benson Mayowa.
The five former Seahawks who were released on the team's roster cutdown to 53 were picked up by other clubs over the weekend - Toomer by the Dallas Cowboys (active roster), Small (practice squad), Lewis (practice squad), and Hauptmann (active roster) by the Cleveland Browns, and Mayowa by the Oakland Raiders (active roster).
