Seattle entered week 16 already missing Rashaad Penny to a torn ACL. They then lost Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise to season-ending injuries against the Arizona Cardinals.

“We have to get scrambling,” he said. “(Seahawks general manager John Schneider’s) got to get to work and figure out what we’re doing next. That’s a lot of game for Homer to have to play by himself. So obviously we will make some moves here, and figure some stuff out.”
