Seahawks release struggling RB Christine Michael

The Seattle Seahawks have waived running back Christine Michael, the team announced on Tuesday.
Michael started seven games this season, running 117 times for 469 yards (4.0 YPC). With Thomas Rawls having suffered a fibula injury in Week 2, Michael had a chance to resurrect his career but was never able to get going.
In Week 9, rookie C.J. Prosise played more snaps than Michael, and Sunday against the New England Patriots, Prosise got the start.
Michael popped up on the injury report last Friday with a hamstring injury and was listed as questionable. He dressed for the game but played only 11 snaps.
Asked about Michael’s injury Monday, Pete Carroll said simply, “He’s fine.”

Michael was originally a second-round pick by the Seahawks in 2010. After two seasons in Seattle, the team traded him to the Dallas Cowboys. Michael was released by the Cowboys during last season and caught on with the Washington Redskins before returning to Seattle for the final three games.
He was a free agent in the offseason and ended up signing a one-year, $765,000 deal to return to Seattle.
During the summer, coaches and teammates raved about Michael making the most of his second chance. Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell described Michael’s new attitude as “an awakening.” But he was unable to take full advantage of his opportunity.
Prosise had 24 touches for 153 yards last week and figures to play a big role going forward. The Seahawks are also expecting to get Rawls back in Week 11.
“With C.J., the versatility of all the things he seems to be able to do at this point, and knowing that there’s a real style to Thomas that we’re really looking forward to seeing, it could be a real nice matchup,” Carroll said. “We’ll see how that works.”
The Seahawks have running back Alex Collins on their roster and added Troymaine Pope from the practice squad as well on Tuesday.
The team also waived nose tackle Sealver Siliga and signed defensive lineman John Jenkins, who was recently released by the New Orleans Saints. The Seahawks currently have one open spot on their 53-man roster.
