Coach Pete Carroll said Sunday that Hyde was held out of practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
EDGE Analysis
Carroll's comment is ambiguous as to whether Hyde was given a rest day or held out due to injury. Travis Homer (undisclosed) also was unable to practice Sunday, leaving Chris Carson, DeeJay Dallas and Patrick Carr as Seattle's only available running backs. Assuming Hyde is able to maintain full health leading up to the regular season, he looks in line to operate behind Carson out of the backfield.

Coach Pete Carroll said Hyde will be "a big factor" for the Seahawks, John Boyle of Seahawks.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Carroll's comments aren't exactly reliable, but there does seem to be a general consensus from Seattle beat reporters about Hyde getting regular work with the first-team offense. That's largely because Chris Carson has seen his practice workloads carefully monitored, a trend that could continue -- albeit to a lesser extent -- in the regular season. It seems both Hyde and Carson have looked healthy this month, with the former returning from shoulder surgery and the latter working his way back from a hip fracture. Meanwhile, Rashaad Penny (knee) remains on the PUP list, likely headed for an extended absence to start the season.

Hyde (shoulder) practiced in shoulder pads and a helmet Wednesday.
EDGE Analysis
Hyde underwent shoulder surgery in February and finally made his practice debut with the Seahawks. Although he didn't absorb any contact, the veteran running back participated in team drills and looks on track for Week 1. While he was mainly brought in to be a dependable backup behind Chris Carson -- who is returning from a fractured hip -- and Rashaad Penny (torn ACL), Hyde could enjoy a respectable workload through the first few games if Carson can't handle his typical workhorse role. If Carson stays healthy, though, Hyde will have a difficult path to fantasy relevancy, as he doesn't contribute in the passing game where both Travis Homer and rookie DeeJay Dallas can pick up reps.

Hyde (shoulder) said Monday that his rehab is continuing on track and he expects to be fully recovered by Week 1, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
EDGE Analysis
Even more encouragingly, Hyde said that he expects to be ready to participate in training camp as soon as activities kick off, per Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. With Rashaad Penny (knee) seemingly in real danger of beginning the 2020 campaign on the PUP list, Hyde could be in line to compete for top rotational duties behind Chris Carson (hip) if he's indeed a full go for Week 1. The 29-year-old is coming off the best campaign of his career, in which he eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards for the first time (1,070 yards) and exceeded 4.0 yards per carry (4.4 YPC) for the first time since 2016 despite having played through a torn labrum for most of the season, per Condotta. He's recovering from February surgery to address the injury.

Hyde, who signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks on Friday, had surgery on his shoulder in February, but is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, Michael Silver of NFL.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
It's obvious the Seahawks were aware of the surgery before ultimately signing Hyde on Friday, but it might explain why the Ohio State product took so long to find a home this offseason despite rushing for a career-high 1,070 yards with the Texans last season. Expect the 2014 second-round pick to compete with Rashaad Penny (knee) for leftover opportunities behind nominal starter Chris Carson (hip).

Hyde will sign a one-year contract with the Seahawks.
EDGE Analysis
Hyde wound up with full-time duties in Houston last year and turned in one of the better seasons of his career, rushing 245 times for 1,070 yards (4.4 YPC) and six touchdowns. He won't have the same role with the Seahawks, which also have Chris Carson (hip), Rashaad Penny (ACL), Travis Homer and rookie DeeJay Dallas in their running back room. Penny could start the season on the PUP list, which would potentially enable Hyde to carve out a complementary role to Carson.

The Eagles are interested in signing Hyde, according to Adam Caplan on his Inside the Birds podcast.
EDGE Analysis
The Eagles didn't add any draft picks to their backfield, opting for Corey Clement, Elijah Holyfield and a pair of undrafted rookies behind 2019 contributors Miles Sanders and Boston Scott. The 29-year-old Hyde could challenge for early down snaps and short-yardage/goal-line carries, potentially damaging Sanders' fantasy value. Hyde ran for 1,070 yards in Houston last season, but he added only 10 catches for 42 yards and coughed up four fumbles along the way.

Hyde is slated to be an unrestricted free agent next week after declining an offer from the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
EDGE Analysis
Hyde signed a deal with the Chiefs last offseason, only to be dealt to the Texans at the end of the preseason, having lost the battle for running back slotting behind starter Damien Williams. Once in a Houston backfield without Lamar Miller (knee), Hyde paced the team with career highs in carries (245) and rushing yards (1,070), but predictably he didn't make much of an impact as a receiver, hauling in 10 of 16 targets over the course of 16 games. Hyde seemingly has decided to test the market for his services, and his landing spot ultimately will determine his value.

Hyde ran for 44 yards on 13 carries and caught three of four targets for 18 receiving yards during Sunday's 51-31 divisional round loss to the Chiefs.
EDGE Analysis
The 6-foot, 229-pound bulldozer wrapped up his 2019 postseason with just 3.2 yards per carry, after establishing the second-best yards-per-rush rate of his career during the regular season (4.4). He characteristically remained a peripheral contributor in Houston's passing attack during the playoffs with five total targets, but he was bailed out somewhat in the wild-card round by hauling in a five-yard TD pass from Deshaun Watson. Sunday he was held out of the end zone for just the second time since Week 14, as Houston managed only 10 points over the final 40 minutes of regulation against a resurgent Kansas City defense. The 29-year-old back is set to become a free agent this offseason, but he may be brought back if the Bill O'Brien contingent believes he can remain a viable contributor despite having six years of NFL tread on his tires.

Hyde carried the ball 16 times for 48 yards and caught his only target for a five-yard touchdown in Saturday's 22-19 overtime win over the Bills.
EDGE Analysis
His fourth-quarter TD grab gave the Texans their first lead of the game, but overall, Hyde had trouble making a dent against a tough Bills defense -- his longest run went for only eight yards. He should find more room to operate next Sunday in Kansas City during the AFC divisional round, facing a Chiefs defense that allowed 4.9 yards a carry (28th in the league) and 128.2 rushing yards a game (26th) during the regular season.
