Alex Collins, RB | SEA

Spectates for another practice

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll expressed optimism earlier in the week that Collins would be ready to go for Monday's game against the Saints, but the running back's second straight absence from practice doesn't bode well for his chances of avoiding the inactive list. Brady Henderson of ESPN.com suggests that Rashaad Penny (calf), who was designated to return from injured reserve Thursday, would be in line for a big role out of the Seattle backfield if Collins can't play Monday.

O.J. Howard, TE | TB

O.J. Howard (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 7 against Chicago.

The Bucs listed Howard on the injury report despite returning to a full practice Friday. Barring a setback, he's expected to play. With Rob Gronkowski (ribs) and Antonio Brown (ankle) out, Howard should be a popular streaming option after posting a 6/49/1 line in Week 6.

DK Metcalf, WR | SEA

Idle with foot issue

After being listed as a full participant in the Seahawks' first Week 7 practice Thursday, Metcalf didn't take any reps with his healthy teammates a day later. While the downgrade in activity would normally be cause for concern, Metcalf also sat out the Seahawks' second practice Week 6 with the same injury, only to head into the team's game against the Steelers without a designation. Assuming Metcalf's absence Friday was part of a pre-planned maintenance program, he should still be ready to handle a normal workload Monday night against the Saints.
