Jermaine Kearse WR SEA 13 Hrs
Kearse suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's game against the Cardinals, and he will not return to the contest.
Kearse's absence leaves additional snaps for Paul Richardson, Bryan Walters and Ricardo Lockette. Richards is most likely to take advantage of the opportunity, while Kearse finishes with one catch for eight yards on one target.

Kearse caught 5-of-6 targets for a season-high 78 yards in Sunday's 17-7 win over the 49ers.
Kearse, who had a 47-yard catch at one point, could have had an even bigger game but dropped a long reception down the sideline, although the degree of difficulty was high. Next week, Kearse will face a Cardinals' pass defense that has been been mediocre statistically, but also dominated at times.

Kearse had three receptions (on seven targets) for 37 yards in Sunday's win at Philadelphia.
Kearse didn't make a major impact, but he had a spectacular diving catch for 20 yards at one point. He's scored just one touchdown this season, and isn't seeing a lot of targets in general, so he's probably only an option in deeper formats.

Kearse (ankle) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the 49ers.
Kearse is available if you need him Thursday, but with one-catch efforts in two of his last four outings, he's been a hit-or-miss fantasy option of late.

Kearse (ankle) is listed as probable for Thursday's game in San Francisco, John Boyle of the Everett Herald reports.
Kearse has taken a large share of offensive snaps this season, but with merely 26 receptions (on 50 targets) for 380 yards and one touchdown through 11 outings, he's nothing more than a deep-league option at this stage in his young career.

Kearse (ankle) was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice, John Boyle of the Everett Herald reports.
Kearse emerged from Sunday's win over Arizona with a bit of an ankle issue and was projected as a limited participant Monday, but his return to a full projection Tuesday -- the Seahawks held another walkthrough -- suggests it's of relatively little concern. His status for Thursday's game against the 49ers is not believed to be in danger, but Kearse saw two targets last week and is averaging just 4.3 targets per game so far this season.

Kearse (ankle) was listed as a limited participant at Monday's walkthrough practice, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
The injury is presumably a new issue from Sunday's win over the Cardinals, but Kearse's status as a limited participant is a good sign for his chances of playing against the 49ers on Thanksgiving. He caught just one ball for 19 yards versus Arizona, after recording a season-high five receptions for 54 yards in Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Kearse caught 3-of-4 targets for 70 yards in Sunday's 38-17 win over the Giants.
Kearse actually led Seattle in receiving yardage, although nearly all of his damage came on one-play; a pretty 60-yard bomb from Russell Wilson. He'll have a stiff test next week, facing a strong Chiefs' secondary.

Kearse has three catches on seven targets for 50 yards Sunday against the Rams.
With Percy Harvin traded to the Jets, Kearse figures to get more playing time opposite Doug Baldwin, who really took advantage of the added looks Sunday by catching seven of 11 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. Kearse has now been targeted 14 times in the last two games combined, but he's not a big red zone target, and the Seahawks like to run the ball when they're in close, so his fantasy value, while increasing, is still pretty limited.

Kearse had three receptions on seven targets for 62 yards in Sunday's loss to Dallas.
Kearse had one long catch, a 53-yard grab early in the game, but wasn't a factor otherwise. The entire Seattle passing game struggled though, as Russell Wilson threw for just 126 yards. While he saw a lot of looks Sunday, he's just not getting enough targets in general to expect a breakout.
