 Seattle Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise might play Friday night when the Seahawks face Kansas City in a preseason game. Or a lingering groin injury may keep him on the sideline, according to a report.

Prosise was a late scratch before the Seahawks Week 2 preseason game against Minnesota last Friday. Prosise and injuries Pierre Desir Jersey have been friends since he was drafted by the Seahawks in 2016 and the team is expressing concern about his durability and dependability.

 I think we all are, offensive line coach Tom Cable told reporters Wednesday. We want to get everybody as healthy as we can as soon as we can so that they can be playing together. That s the key to good offensive football.

The Seahawks were looking forward to Prosise playing a bigger role in the offense in 2017. His versatility running and catching the football made him a valuable piece in the offense. His numbers 30 carries for 172 yards and one touchdown, 17 receptions for 208 yards in six games weren t off the charts in 2016, but he displayed the talent the Seahawks like to see in their running backs.

Prosise missed the final six games of the regular season and the two playoff games with a fractured scapula. The injury added to a string of physical issues for Prosise dating back to his days at Notre Dame.

He had a concussion and ankle injury while at Notre Dame. He sustained hip flexor , hamstring , wrist injuries since joining the Seahawks.

Now it s a groin injury. There s hope the injury will improve enough for Prosise to play Friday night. He carried the football once for three yards and caught one pass for eight yards in the Seahawks preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers during Week 1 in his only game action of the preseason.

 We d love to see to him play this weekend, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.
