Metcalf (foot/back) was held out of Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Metcalf has logged more time away from the practice field in recent weeks, primarily due to a nagging foot injury, but a back issue showed up this time around. The pair of health concerns has kept him sidelined, so Friday's injury report will be notable for his status heading into the weekend. With Tyler Lockett's (undisclosed) placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday and reserves Freddy Swain (ankle/personal) and Dee Eskridge (foot) also missing from practice, the Seahawks' receiving corps is in flux during Week 15 prep.

Metcalf (foot/back) didn't practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Metcalf has been dealing with a lingering foot injury since Week 4, and a back issue now has paired with it to keep the wide receiver out of drills to begin Week 15 prep. Despite his health being compromised, he's been able to power through on game days, but his production has waned since the Seahawks' bye. In five games in the interim, Metcalf has reeled in just 17 of 36 targets for 173 yards and no TDs, which followed a 39-580-8 line on 56 targets through the first eight contests of the season. Per usual, his status will be one to watch to make sure he's trending toward active status Sunday against the Rams in L.A.

Metcalf caught four of eight targets for 43 yards in Sunday's 33-13 win over the Texans.
EDGE Analysis
Metcalf and quarterback Russell Wilson haven't been on the same page this season, as the third-year wideout has posted 60 or fewer yards in six straight games while failing to find the end zone in five of those contests. Still, he has been targeted eight times in four of the past five games, so the opportunities should convert into production soon. Metcalf could be shadowed by All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey in Week 15 against the Rams, though.

Metcalf (foot/illness) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game in Houston, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Metcalf actually missed practice twice this week, but his absence Thursday likely was attributed to an illness versus the foot injury that has lingered for most of the campaign. Now that he's cleared for game action, he'll look to get back on track versus a Texans defense that has given up 8.8 yards per target (seventh most in the NFL) and 11 TDs (18th most) to wide receivers in 12 contests this season.

Metcalf (foot) missed Thursday's practice with an illness, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Metcalf already has logged one DNP this week due to the foot injury that has followed him for much of the campaign, which typically is the extent of his weekly practice limitations. With an illness in tow, he fortunately has time to put it behind him in advance of Sunday's game at Houston, but his status should continue to be watched to get a sense of his availability for Week 14.

Metcalf (foot) didn't practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Since coming down with a foot injury during Week 4 action, Metcalf has logged one session with limited or no activity per week, but it hasn't stopped him from being available on game days. As a result, he'll likely be listed as full upon the release of Thursday's practice report. Metcalf has had stated performances since Russell Wilson returned to action Week 10, hauling in 13 of 28 targets for 130 yards and one touchdown over the last four contests.

Metcalf caught five of eight targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.
EDGE Analysis
He tied Tyler Lockett for the team lead in targets, but Metcalf didn't do as much with the volume as his teammate. It was still his best performance in four games since Seattle's bye, and with Russell Wilson also showing signs of rounding back into form, Metcalf could be primed for a breakout in Week 14 against the Texans.

Metcalf (foot) practiced in full Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
One day removed from his limited listing on Wednesday's estimated injury report, Metcalf handled every rep as the Seahawks manage a foot issue that has bothered him since Week 4. While he produced no matter who was under center before the team's Week 9 bye -- a 39-580-8 line on 56 targets -- he's managed to haul in just eight of 20 passes for 70 yards and no scores over the last three games, all with Russell Wilson directing the offense. Metcalf and Wilson will attempt to get back on track Sunday against the 49ers.

Metcalf (foot) was listed as limited on Wednesday's estimated injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Metcalf has been tending to a foot injury for the better part of two months, but he hasn't missed any games as a result. In fact, he hasn't logged below a 71 percent snap share in any contest and is coming off back-to-back games with at least a 92 percent share. But his production has waned in three outings with Russell Wilson back in the lineup, as Metcalf has gathered in just eight of 20 targets for 70 yards and no touchdowns. Assuming Metcalf suits up this weekend, per usual, he'll be taking on the 49ers' sixth-ranked pass defense (207.3 yards per game).

Metcalf caught one of four targets for 13 yards in Monday night's 17-15 loss to Washington.
EDGE Analysis
Metcalf was hardly involved in another underwhelming offensive performance from the Seahawks. In fact, his lone catch didn't come until there was just over a minute remaining in the game. With three straight outings of under 35 receiving yards and no touchdowns, Metcalf carries a slump into Week 13's matchup versus the 49ers.
