Marshawn Lynch Injury Update: Back Injury Cuts Short Day During Warmups

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch surprised quite a few fantasy football owners Sunday morning when he was a last minute scratch against the Cleveland Browns. Lynch was expected to be active and start but he reportedly injured his back during pre-game warmups and was immediately ruled out for the game.

After the game, Pete Carroll indicated the back issue was something that had been ongoing since Lynch first arrived in Seattle. It was not on the weekly injury report so it is hard to know exactly how serious it was leading up to Sunday's game. Whatever the case, he was literally a last minute scratch. In Lynch's place, the Seahawks split the carries between Leon Washington and Justin Forsett. They finished with 15 carries for 62 yards. Although they averaged just over four yards per carry, this ugly game was won less by quality offense and more by who screwed up less.

At this point it is a tough weekly decision if you are counting on Lynch for fantasy contributions. If you are counting on him for significant contributions you may already be in trouble this season. He has not been a consistent contributor in some time and given Seattle's offensive struggles, their rushing game has very little value at this point.

Doug Baldwin Fantasy: Seahawks WR Hardly Involved Vs. Browns

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin didn't do much of anything fantasy wise against the Cleveland Browns today. With back up quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, Baldwin was targeted only three times and had zero catches. Many thought Baldwin would be more involved, given how much he worked with Whitehurst in practice.

Baldwin was averaging 66 receiving yards a game with 330 receiving yards on the season and 2 touchdowns through his first six games of the 2011 NFL season. Baldwin is off to a hot start in his rookie season.

Baldwin was ranked by Yahoo! as the 26th ranked wide receiver heading into Week 7 taking on the Seattle Seahawks who rank 23rd against the pass.

Evan Moore Fantasy Stats: Browns Wide Receiver Struggles

Evan Moore had a fantasy football output similar to the rest of the Browns receivers on Sunday. This is not a good thing. The Browns scored just six points and Moore hauled in four catches for 35 yards. His longest catch went for 16 yards.

The Browns could hardly get anything going against the Seahawks, who were equally futile. Cleveland won the game by a score of 6-3. But this output was actually more than Moore's averages heading into Week 7.

Moore was averaging 20 receiving yards a game with 100 receiving yards on the season and 2 touchdowns through his first six games of the 2011 NFL season. Moores's receiving yards per game are the same from last season.

Moore was not ranked by Yahoo! heading into Week 7 taking on the Seattle Seahawks who rank 23rd against the pass.

Greg Little Fantasy Stats: Five Catches But Few Yards For Browns TE

Cleveland tight end Greg Little did not put up good fantasy football stats on Sunday. Then again, no one did in the Browns 6-3 win against the Seahawks. Little caught five passes but netted just 31 total yards. There were no touchdowns scored in the game. The Browns have the 24th-ranked offense in the NFL.

Little was averaging 41 receiving yards a game with 203 receiving yards on the season and 0 touchdowns through his first six games of the 2011 NFL season. LIttle's leads the Browns in pass receptions.

Little was ranked by Yahoo! as the 20th ranked wide receiver heading into Week 7 taking on the Seattle Seahawks who rank 23rd against the pass.

Sidney Rice Fantasy Stats: Slow Day For Seahawks WR

Poor Sidney Rice. The Seahawks wide receiver had a poor fantasy football day, catching two balls for 38 yards. But when your quarterback throws for 98 total yards and no touchdowns, there's not much more you can do.

Rice had to wait until Week 3 to make his 2011 debut, but after eight receptions for 109 yards against the Cardinals he has been largely disappointing. He has just one touchdown reception, which came as part of a three-catch, 79-yard game. He managed just 38 yards on four catches against New York Giants cornerback Corey Webster.

Entering Week 7, Rice had just 15 receptions for 226 yards, a disappointment for a No. 1 receiver.

Colt McCoy Fantasy Stats: Quiet Day In Ugly Game

Colt McCoy had a quiet fantasy football day, along with everyone else on the field in the Browns 6-3 win against the Seahawks. McCoy threw for 178 yards and rushed for 31 more. He threw one interception and no touchdowns.

More bad news for McCoy fantasy owners is that Browns tight end Ben Watson suffered an injury, taking away a target for the Cleveland QB.

McCoy was averaging 240 passing yards a game with 1,199 receiving yards on the season and 8 touchdowns through his first six games of the 2011 NFL season. McCoy's passing yards per game is up nearly 40 yards per game from last season.

McCoy was ranked by Yahoo! as the 17th ranked quarterback heading into Week 7 taking on the Seattle Seahawks who rank 23rd against the pass.

Benjamin Watson Injury: Browns TE Out With Concussion

Benjamin Watson's day has gone from bad to worse. The Browns tight end finished the first half with just one catch for five yards, and it looks like that will be all she wrote. From the Browns' official Twitter account:

#Browns Injury Update: Benjamin Watson has suffered a head injury & will not return.

Watson was averaging 42 receiving yards a game with 208 receiving yards on the season and 2 touchdowns through his first six games of the 2011 NFL season. Watson's receiving yards per game are down nearly 5 yards per game from last season.

Watson was ranked by Yahoo! as the 14th ranked tight end heading into Week 7 taking on the Seattle Seahawks who rank 23rd against the pass.

Marshawn Lynch Injury Update: Seahawks RB Out, Injures Back In Warm Ups

Marshawn Lynch was a late scratch from the Seattle Seahawks line up today, as he injured his back in warm ups according to Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times, via his Twitter feed.

RB Marshawn Lynch is out this game. He injured his back during warmups.

Marshawn Lynch played through an ankle injury in the Seattle Seahawks' victory over the New York Giants two weeks ago and he used the bye week to recuperate. He was a full participant in practice this week and was listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

In Lynch's absence, the Seahawks will turn to back up running back Justin Forsett against the Browns.

Peyton Hillis Has Been Fantasy Kryptonite In 2011

Peyton Hillis is out for the Cleveland Browns' game against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6. It's just the latest issue for Hillis in a season that has fantasy players understandably frustrated.

Hillis, the Madden NFL 12 cover athlete, has had a truly disappointing 2011. His one great game came in Week 2 against the lowly Colts, and he didn't even break 100 yards in it, rushing for 94 yards and two touchdowns. He hasn't had more than 17 carries or more than 57 yards in any other game, and will be missing his second game on the season this Sunday.

That's quite a fall for a back some expected to be the Browns' workhorse for years to come. And considering Monterio Hardesty's good play in relief of Hillis, it's possible that the bottom hasn't quite come yet.

Peyton Hillis Status Update: Browns RB Out Against Seahawks

Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis' strained left hamstring has him out for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora's Twitter feed.

Not too many injury questions with the early games today, but I can report Browns RB Peyton Hillis will not play against Seattle

Hillis did not practice during the week and was expected to be a game-time decision on Sunday, with 2010 second-round pick Montario Hardesty now the likely starter.

After spending his rookie season on injured reserve, Hardesty has 40 carries for 143 yards with 10 receptions for 86 yards out of the backfield this season. Hardesty started in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins when Hillis did not play due to illness, rushing for 14 carries for 67 yards in the 17-16 win, and he had seven carries for 22 yards in a starting role in a 31-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 4.

Earlier this week, the Browns signed running back Chris Ogbonnaya off the Houston Texans' practice squad to be the No. 3 back behind Hillis and Hardesty.

Josh Cribbs Status Update: Browns WR/Kick Returner Probable

Cleveland Browns wide receiver and returner Josh Cribbs didn't play in Week 5, but it looks like he's going to play for the second straight week against the Seattle Seahawks. Cribbs is recovering from a knee injury, and had full participation in practice this week. He is currently listed as probable.

Cribbs only has one touchdown catch on the season and his season best performance was five catches for 50 yards against the Tennessee Titans. Additionally, Cribbs hasn't been better than average in the return game this season. Should you have a hunch that the Seahawks' pass defense and special teams are exceptionally poor, Cribbs is going to be healthy enough to get plenty of touches, but his recent stats don't exactly scream 'must-play', regardless of whether or not he's completely healthy.

Marshawn Lynch Status Update: Seahawks RB Probable With Ankle Injury

Marshawn Lynch played through an ankle injury in the Seattle Seahawks' victory over the New York Giants two weeks ago and he used the bye week to recuperate. He was a full participant in practice this week and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Lynch enters this contest with a two-game scoring streak, punching the ball into the end zone against the Falcons and the Giants. However, those are his only touchdowns of the season. His touches per game have fluctuated all season. He's had three games of 10-plus carries and two with fewer than that. His game against the Giants has been his best so far, picking up 98 yards on 12 carries.

Tarvaris Jackson Status Update: Seahawks QB Game Time Decision

The Seattle Seahawks will likely be without quarterback Tarvaris Jackson on Sunday when they take on the Cleveland Browns. Jackson is listed as doubtful with a pectoral injury that he suffered last week against the New York Giants. Jackson didn't practice all week, so it is highly unlikely he's going to play against the Browns. The Seahawks are officially calling Jackson a "game time" decision.

In his place, the Seahawks will start Charlie Whitehurst. Whitehurst took all of the first team reps this week in practice. In relief duty last week, Whitehurst completed 11 of 19 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown. He has a nice rapport with rookie wide receiver Doug Baldwin, so he will likely look his way often.

Mike Williams Status Update: Probable To Play Vs. Browns

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Mike Williams participated fully in this week's practices and is listed as a probable for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Williams sustained a concussion while blocking on an 11-yard touchdown by Marshawn Lynch during the Seahawks' 30-28 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4. Williams was not cleared to play in Seattle's 36-25 win over the New York Giants in Week 5, but will start on Sunday against the Browns.

A 2010 Comeback Player of the Year candidate with 65 receptions for 751 yards and two touchdowns, Williams has gotten off to a slow start in 2011 as the Seahawks have changed offensive coordinators (Darrell Bevell replacing Jeremy Bates) and quarterbacks (Tarvaris Jackson replacing Matt Hasselbeck). Williams has been an afterthought in the offense, catching just one pass for nine yards over weeks two and three, totaling just eight receptions for 79 yards and a touchdown through four games.

Peyton Hillis Status Update: Browns RB Questionable With Hamstring Injury

Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis strained left hamstring has him listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Hillis did not practice during the week and is expected to be a game-time decision on Sunday, with 2010 second-round pick Montario Hardesty the likely starter should Hillis be unable to play.

After spending his rookie season on injured reserve, Hardesty has 40 carries for 143 yards with 10 receptions for 86 yards out of the backfield this season. Hardesty started in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins when Hillis did not play due to illness, rushing for 14 carries for 67 yards in the 17-16 win, and he had seven carries for 22 yards in a starting role in a 31-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 4.

Earlier this week, the Browns signed running back Chris Ogbonnaya off the Houston Texans' practice squad to be the No. 3 back behind Hillis and Hardesty.

Zach Miller Injury Update: Seahawks TE Ruled Out Vs. Browns

Seattle Seahawks tight end Zach Miller (head/neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

Miller sustained a concussion during the Seahawks' 36-25 win over the New York Giants on October 9 when Giants safety Kenny Phillips launched into Miller on the opening drive of the game. Miller continued to play in the first half, but was sat out the final two quarters. Phillips was penalized on the play and fined $20,000 by the National Football League.

Despite Seattle having a bye last week, Miller has not yet been cleared to return to practice.

2010 sixth-round pick Anthony McCoy is the only other tight end on the Seahawks' roster, but third-year player Cameron Morrah could be activated from the physically unable to perform list. Morrah caught nine passes for 117 yards last season, but opened the season on the PUP list with a toe injury. Morrah returned to practice this week, starting the clock on the three-week window to add him to the 53-man roster.

The Seahawks also have the option of signing journeyman tight end John Nalbone off the practice squad.
