Seahawks juggling running backs as injuries...

The Seattle Seahawks will be without two more running backs on Monday night against Washington with both Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) officially ruled out of the contest.

Coach Pete Carroll was asked how he was planning to deal with the run game now down another couple of backs.

“We will mix as we need to, we are going with Alex (Collins),” Carroll said on Saturday.” Alex has been the guy that we have been leading with and he’s ready to go. DeeJay (Dallas) is primed and ready, so you will see what happens in the next day or so as we round it out.”

However, Collins has been battling a groin injury of his own, although that shouldn’t be a problem in Washington.

He seems to be fine, he talks like he’s okay,” Carroll explained. “We always give the lead running back some respect in terms of how we work him and all and we are doing that now with him, but he’s ready to go.”

Carroll did acknowledge the possibility of bringing Josh Johnson up from the practice squad to add additional depth.

Seattle and the Washington Football Team are set to square off Monday night at 5:15 p.m. PT.
