Seattle Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker is doubtful to return on Thursday as the Seahawks face the Dallas Cowboys. Walker missed Week 12 with an oblique injury, and the early-week game put the RB under pressure for a quick turnaround.

Kenneth Walker injury updates

Wednesday PM update: Walker is officially listed as doubtful for Thursday night’s game against the Cowboys. He did not practice at all this week so isn’t expected to play.

Wednesday update: The Seahawks will likely be playing without Walker as they face the Cowboys in Week 13, per Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy football analysis

With Walker likely out, we can expect to see rookie Zach Charbonnet carry the majority of the load in the backfield. Last week, when Walker was sidelined, Charbonnet had 14 carries for 47 yards.

Betting analysis

The Seahawks were clearly struggling to string together drives or get any sort of offensive momentum without their star running back out there against the Niners, and they may find themselves facing similar issues this week as they go up against a tough Dallas defense. Walker’s absence will absolutely affect the line on this game.
