Lacy's 2.59 yards per carry was the lowest in the league this season among players with at least 50 rushing attempts, as he was arguably the NFL's worst running back.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy, who signed an incentive-laden one-year deal, was a colossal bust for the Seahawks. Despite the team's bare cupboard at running back, he didn't play in seven games, a healthy scratch in all but one of the five games he was inactive. The Seahawks might as well have released him as he had one carry in December. He had only four runs longer than 10 yards and didn't score for the second consecutive season. Not only won't he be back with the Seahawks, his career could be over.

Lacy is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Lacy a healthy scratch Sunday, the Seahawks will roll with a Week 16 backfield comprised of Mike Davis, J.D. McKissic and Thomas Rawls.

Lacy (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's contest at Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

The absence marks the third time the Browns have deemed Lacy a healthy scratch. More than likely, the Seahawks will rely on Mike Davis as the lead back and J.D. McKissic for obvious passing downs, but Thomas Rawls will be around to spell the duo.

Lacy had a three-yard run during Seattle's 24-10 win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy's time atop Seattle's depth chart was apparently short-lived. The Alabama product worked a three-yard carry late in the first quarter and never touched the ball again after seeing 20 touches last week. Lacy's demotion cannot be a complete surprise as the veteran has averaged just 2.6 yards per carry this season and has just one game in which he averaged more than 3.5 yards per carry. Still, the precipitous drops is notable: going from starter to three offensive touches in the course of a week.

Lacy ran for 46 yards on 17 carries and added three catches for 15 yards during Sunday's 24-13 win over San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday was Lacy's heaviest workload of the season by a full eight touches and was the first time since Week 7 that Lacy cracked double digits in touches. Seattle is in a predicament as it needs a consistent running threat outside of quarterback Russell Wilson. The team certainly leaned heavily on Lacy on Sunday, but is his sixth straight game of under 3.5 yards per carry enough to keep J.D. McKissic off the field?

Head coach Pete Carroll suggested to Danny O'Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle that Lacy will start at running back Monday against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

The Seahawks have made Thomas Rawls a healthy scratch for the second time this season, leaving Lacy, J.D. McKissic and Mike Davis as the only RBs on the active roster. Among the trio, Lacy is the best bet for work on first and second down and perhaps at the goal line. If he can't muster more than his 2.7 YPC on the season, though, Seattle's ground game may continue to sputter outside of Russell Wilson.

Lacy (groin) was absent from Saturday's injury report and is in line to play Monday night against the Falcons, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy missed last Thursday's win over the Cardinals with a groin injury but is now set to return to the field Monday night after logging full practices throughout the week. While he could take over starting responsibilities from Thomas Rawls, it seems more likely that the pair will split carries considering they're both averaging around eight carries per game this season.

Lacy (groin) logged a full practice Friday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of SeattlePI.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to the Seahawks' first practice of the week Thursday, head coach Pete Carroll intimated that Lacy would be able to return from a one-game absence Monday against the Falcons, and the running back's full session Friday seemingly validates that sentiment. Assuming he incurs no setbacks prior to the Week 11 matchup, Lacy might take back starting duties from Thomas Rawls, but the two could end up splitting the carries in a fairly even fashion unless one one of the backs performs dramatically better than the other early on in the contest.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that Lacy (groin) should be available for Monday's game against the Falcons, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle, Lacy is set to practice Thursday, though it's unclear if he'll be a limited or full participant in the session. Either way, Lacy seems to have made steady progress in his recovery from the right groin strain, which prevented him from playing on a short week in last Thursday's win over the Cardinals. Thomas Rawls served as the Seahawks' lead back in Week 10 and underwhelmed with 27 yards on 10 carries and 12 yards on two receptions, so expect a healthy Lacy to at least settle back into a timeshare with Rawls.

Lacy (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday's game at Arizona, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lacy's inability to practice during a short week forced the Seahawks' hand. The absence will mark his third of the season, allowing Thomas Rawls to serve as the lead back Thursday. Throwing a wrench into Rawls receiving most of the offensive snaps out of the backfield is the return of C.J. Prosise, whose pass-catching prowess could keep the former contained to a two-down role.
