According to Bob Condotta, Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said RB C.J. Prosise has a six-week timetable for recovery from an ankle sprain and “could be a candidate” to return for the playoffs.

The Seahawks placed Prosise on the injured reserve earlier today, but Carroll added that is a “race” between Prosise and RB Chris Carson to see who can return the fastest.

Yesterday, Carroll indicated that “there’s a chance” Carson returns from a leg fracture in December.
