Earl Thomas - SPosted 1/23/15 11:05pm ET
Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) will play in the Super Bowl, head coach Pete Carroll said Friday, Jan. 23.
Huddle Up: The Thomas suffered a separated shoulder in the NFC title game and at least has an extra week of recovery time before the big game. This particular injury, though, could compromise Thomas more than most, given his aggressive, hard-hitting style.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/23/15 11:05pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (non-injury) practiced in full Friday, Jan. 23, and is probable for the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Unless he insists on wearing his gold cleats, expect to see Lynch a week from Sunday. And if he plays, expect to see him find his way into the end zone as he's totaled seven TDs over his last seven postseason games.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 1/22/15 3:47pm ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has a base salary of $662,434 this season, which is 25th among starting NFL quarterbacks. However, he will negotiate a contract extension this offseason that will make him one of the highest paid players in the league. A multi-year deal for Wilson is expected to be above $20 million per year with more than $50 million guaranteed. He is already the first player in NFL history to reach two Super Bowls in his first three seasons.
Huddle Up: With four interceptions, Wilson was on his way to his worst game as a pro last Sunday until he helped rally the Seahawks to a second straight Super Bowl appearance. Regardless of what happens Feb. 1, his 41-13 record as a starter (including the postseason) 98.6 career passer rating and precocious leadership abilities will result in the overdue payday.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/22/15 4:04pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch was fined $20,000 Thursday, Jan. 22, for an obscene gesture he made after scoring a touchdown in the NFC Championship Game, according to an NFL official. He's also subject to a fine for not speaking to the media after the game, and the league is considering fining him significantly more than the $50,000 he has been previously fined for not speaking to reporters. An NFL official said there would be increasing fines if Lynch misses sessions during Super Bowl week, with each fine being more than the two $50,000 fines already imposed and the upcoming penalty.
Huddle Up: As long as Lynch is still available come kickoff and keeps cranking out 100-yard games and contest-deciding TD runs, the Seahawks, The 12th Man and his fantasy owners really don't have much reason to care how much of a hit Lynch's bank account is taking.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/20/15 3:19pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch may consider retirement if the Seahawks win the Super Bowl, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Lynch has reportedly told people in private that he may simply just walk away from the game. If he doesn't retire, the team is more than open to bringing him back at a $5 million salary. 'Mainly because he actually has outperformed his contract and clearly established himself as the identity of this team,' Rapoport said. 'Basically, they don't have a choice based on the way he plays to bring him back.'
Huddle Up: Lynch, who will be 29 in April but had had the workload of a much older back with at least 313 regular-season touches in each of his four seasons in Seattle, certainly marches to his own beat, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him walk away from the game early. On a flip side, he'll have at least 5 million reasons to return -- and maybe more -- as his on-field play and attitude have seemingly become more vital to the Seahawks with each passing season.
Dan Quinn - DCPosted 1/19/15 10:44am ET
Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is expected to be hired by the Atlanta Falcons for their head coaching position after the Super Bowl. Quinn and new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan planned to be a package deal.
Huddle Up: The Falcons will have an opportunity to talk to Quinn this week with the Seahawks off before picking up Super Bowl preparation, but they can't make anything official. However, with the younger Shanahan in place as Atlanta's OC, you can expect a wink-wink handshake agreement that will move Quinn south following the big game.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/15/15 11:20pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (non-injury) returned to a full practice Thursday, Jan. 15, after sitting out Wednesday, Jan. 14.
Huddle Up: Lynch will be good to go Sunday after taking his usual Wednesday off.
Tony Moeaki - TEPosted 1/13/15 1:39pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Tony Moeaki (calf) is expected to play in the NFC Championship game after missing the Divisional Round playoff game because of a calf injury.
Huddle Up: With rookie WR Paul Richardson lost for the remainder of the postseason with a knee injury, the TEs could see more play in the Seattle passing game, but even if Moeaki does play, he'll be the third TE option behind the emerging Luke Willson and Cooper Helfet.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/13/15 1:52pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has scored 11 of his 13 rushing touchdowns at home this season, including two in a Week 1 win over the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Rolling with Lynch at CenturyLink is as safe of a fantasy bet as they get.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 1/12/15 5:58pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin will likely take over the kickoff duties in the playoffs with WR Paul Richardson (knee) done for the rest of the year.
Huddle Up: It's not as if the Seattle wideouts are overly taxed in the passing game anyway, so another opportunity for Baldwin to get the ball in his hands and create something is a good thing.
Paul Richardson - WRPosted 1/11/15 3:47pm ET
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (knee) suffered a sprained knee in the Divisional Round playoff game, and the severity of the injury is not known at this point, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: The rookie wideout, who had five receptions in each of the final two regular-season games, had one catch for 21 yards before leaving with the injury. It didn't look too promising Saturday, but see what the MRI and other tests reveal.
Paul Richardson - WRPosted 1/11/15 8:22pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (knee) will miss the remainder of the playoffs and could miss the start of next season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the divisional round of the playoffs Saturday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Tough end to a rookie campaign for a WR who had been coming on at the end of the season. In the meantime, the Seahawks will press on with a still-deep but under-appreciated WR corps headed by Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/8/15 8:19pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 8.
Huddle Up: As usual, Lynch will be good to go Saturday night coming off a bye week. The Panthers allowed the 16th-most fantasy points to enemy RBs during the regular season but certainly have played better of late.
Dan Quinn - DCPosted 1/5/15 4:27pm ET
The Buffalo Bills interviewed Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn for their head coaching vacancy Sunday, Jan. 4. Quinn also interviewed with the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Jan. 4, for their head coaching position.
Huddle Up: Busy day for Quinn, who is one of the hotter candidates for one of the six head coaching openings in the league. He'll turn his immediate attention back to the Seahawks' playoff game, but he's taken advantage of his window of opportunity to make an impression.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 12/21/14 9:15pm ET
Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (illness) did not start the Week 16 game against the Arizona Cardinals due to an upset stomach.
Huddle Up: Lynch was seen in his uniform on the sidelines but Robert Turbin got the start for Seattle. This is obviously a crushing blow to owners playing in Fantasy Super Bowls starting Lynch.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 12/19/14 6:50pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is listed as probable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Yeah, we all know the drill by now: Lynch shows up on the injury report every week and misses a practice or two but then goes out Sunday and delivers a regular dose of double-digit fantasy points.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 12/18/14 10:12am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Lynch takes plenty of practices off; no worries about his availability for this weekend's game.
Russell Wilson - QBPosted 11/28/14 10:25am ET
Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has shown signs of regression during his second season on the job, so the team is holding off talks about a new contract or extension. The willingness to give Wilson a new deal will depend on how far Seattle gets in the postseason.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks would be lost without Wilson, especially if the plan is to kick Marshawn Lynch to the curb. The club cleared more than enough cap space by getting out from under the Percy Harvin deal, so look for them to lock up Wilson sooner rather than later--or regret dragging their feet for doing so.
Cooper Helfet - TEPosted 11/27/14 8:03pm ET
The Seattle Seahawks have declared TE Cooper Helfet, LB Allen Bradford, , CB Jeremy Lane, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, C Max Unger, TE Rashaun Allen, DL Travian Robertson inactive for Week 13.
Huddle Up: In case you missed it, Helfet -- Seattle's most productive TE of late -- will miss the Thanksgiving nightcap with an ankle injury. Luke Willson and Tony Moeaki will handle the TE duties against the Niners.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/26/14 12:34am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) was listed as a limited participant for the second straight day of practice Tuesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Lynch hasn't been near 100 percent all season, but he'll be out there Thursday night for the grudge match against the Niners, and his fantasy owners will be hoping for better results than his 15-39 rushing performance in Week 11.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/21/14 6:27pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as probable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: As always, Lynch will be out there Sunday for what figures to be a physical matchup against the division-leading Cardinals.
Bobby Wagner - LBPosted 11/18/14 12:19am ET
Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner (toe) is expected to participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19, and may be able to play in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Wagner, the 'Hawks' leading tackler in each of the last two seasons, hasn't played since Week 6 but will be back to bolster the team's defense for the stretch run.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/15/14 12:37am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (calf, rib) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 14, but is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Lynch was able to practice in full after sitting out both Wednesday and Thursday, and should play Sunday in K.C. Check The Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury and Weather report before kickoff to make sure.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/14/14 12:13am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (calf, rib) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 13.
Huddle Up: Lynch deserves a little rest anyway after his 4-TD fantasy explosion last week, but be worried if he's out of practice again Friday.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/14/14 2:50pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (calf, rib) sat out of practice Thursday, Nov. 14, with a rib injury in addition to his calf ailment. However, it remains to be seen if it's a significant injury heading into Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Lynch had 140 yards and a career-high four touchdowns in Week 10 after missing two practices last week.
Huddle Up: Of course, Lynch owners are going to need to see what he is -- or isn't -- able to do in practice later today and go from there.
Bobby Wagner - LBPosted 11/13/14 11:54pm ET
Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner (toe) has been ruled out for Week 11 but has a chance to play in Week 12, according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: IDP owners take note as Wagner will miss his fifth straight game Sunday.
Zach Miller - TEPosted 11/12/14 4:03pm ET
Seattle Seahawks TE Zach Miller (ankle) is going on Reserve/Injured and will miss the rest of the year.
Huddle Up: That will leave Luke Willson and Cooper Helfet on top of the Seattle TE depth chart, but the position remains an inconsistent part of the team's offense at best as that duo has combined for only 15 receptions for 226 yards and two scores this season, including a one-catch, 32-yard outing in Week 10.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/7/14 12:21am ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch did not practice Thursday, Nov. 6, because of a calf injury.
Huddle Up: Lynch missed his second straight practice, but Thursday's absence has been attributed to a calf injury, which seems to be something new. Definitely check the RB's status on Friday to see if we have any more clarity.
Doug Baldwin - WRPosted 11/7/14 6:56pm ET
Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 7, and is probable in Week 10 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: With 34 receptions for 409 yards, Baldwin easily ranks as Seattle's top receiver and his workload has stepped up noticeably since the team traded Percy Harvin, catching 18 passes for 222 yards and a TD over the last 3 games.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 11/6/14 6:44pm ET
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch could receive more touches, because offense coordinator Darrell Bevell said Lynch is the best player on the team's offense. 'We want to use our good players,' Bevell said. 'And he's definitely, probably the best player on our offense and we want to get him the ball as many ways as we can.'
Huddle Up: The 'Hawks are already off to a good start in that regard with Lynch getting 26 touches (21 rushes, 5 receptions) in the Week 9 win over the Raiders. It was his second-highest single-game total of the season and it netted 143 total yards and 2 scores.
