News: Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that it's "unlikely" Davis (groin) will be able to play Sunday against the 49ers, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Impact: The Seahawks are still trying to determine the severity of the groin pull Davis suffered in Monday's loss to the Falcons, but it appears the third-year running back will at least miss out on a matchup with the team that drafted him in 2015. Davis was promoted to the practice squad ahead of the matchup with the Falcons and was immediately given a look as the team's lead back with Eddie Lacy returning from a groin injury of his own, C.J. Prosise (ankle) on injured reserve and the struggling Thomas Rawls being made a healthy scratch for the contest. Prior to his departure, Davis picked up only 18 yards on six carries, but was more productive as a pass catcher, gaining 41 yards on two receptions. According to Condotta, Carroll indicated that Lacy should have a bigger role against San Francisco now that he's a week removed from the injury, while Rawls will also reenter the running-back rotation to compensate for Davis' absence. J.D. McKissic should also see plenty of snaps out of the backfield, particularly on passing downs.
