RB: Alex Collins

Alex Collins (groin) was downgraded to "DNP" on Thursday.

It's a concern, though Collins followed this routine in Week 8 before suiting up. The Seahawks were on bye in Week 9. Collins never got in a "DNP" in Week 9, so we can't assume his Week 11 status even though he suited up three weeks ago. The Seahawks badly need Collins with Chris Carson (neck) seemingly unlikely to come off injured reserve. If Collins can play, it will be in a plus matchup with the run-funnel Cardinals. We should have a good idea of his status by the time Friday's official injury designations are released. If Collins can't go, it will be an unideal three-man committee comprised of Rashaad Penny, DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer. The Seahawks didn't even give Penny a touch in Week 10.
