Seahawks Running Back C.J. Prosise Questionable For Saturday's Divisional Round Game at Atlanta

Rookie running back C.J. Prosise is questionable for the Seahawks' Divisional Round game at Atlanta and will be a game-day decision.

ATLANTA—The Seahawks and Falcons will both head into Saturday's Divisional Roundup with mostly-healthy 53-man rosters. Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise is the only injury question mark for either team, with the rookie back being listed as questionable due to a shoulder injury.

Prosise, a third-round pick out of Notre Dame, has been sidelined since fracturing his scapula in a Week 11 win over Philadelphia, but did return to practice this week. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Thursday that Prosise would be a game-day decision.

"He made it through practice all this week," Carroll said. "We'll just take it day to day, take it to the stadium and see how it goes.

"He's regaining his confidence and kind of getting going again. It has been a while, seven weeks or something like that. He took a lot of turns yesterday and today, so he's just getting back. We're not sure how we're going to do that, but we'll check him after the whole week's work on Friday and see how it goes all the way to game day… He did practice all this week, so that's a really good sign. So we'll see what happens."

In addition to Prosise, the Seahawks had six other players on their injury report—but three were related to rest days earlier in the week, all were listed as full participants Friday and are expected to play.

The Falcons had five players listed with injuries on their practice report during the week, but all of them practiced fully all week and none are listed on Friday's injury report, meaning all are expected to be available.

The Seahawks held their normal day-before-a-game walk-thru on Friday, so their final practice report is an estimation of participation had the Seahawks practiced Friday.
