Walker (oblique) appears to be trending in the wrong direction for Thursday's game against the Cowboys, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Walker missed Tuesday's practice while continuing to nurse the oblique tear that kept him out of last week's Thanksgiving Day loss to the 49ers. With Seattle facing a short week head of another Thursday game, and Walker still not practicing, he's beginning to look like a longshot for Week 13, though coach Pete Carroll hasn't yet ruled him out. Wednesday's practice will represent Walker's last chance to get some reps in before being tagged with a game-day injury designation. If he can't go, rookie Zach Charbonnet will stand to lead Seattle's backfield on the road against Dallas.

Could sit again Week 13

Walker (oblique) isn't participating in Tuesday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Walker sat out the Seahawks' Thanksgiving Day loss to the 49ers due to a strained oblique, and he may be trending toward another absence Week 13, with Seattle set to face the Cowboys in a second straight Thursday night game. According to Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune, head coach Pete Carroll didn't definitively rule Walker out for this week's contest, but he said the running back will go into the game with "some questions," per Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle. Carroll also noted that he hasn't seen anything from Walker this week to suggest that the 23-year-old is any healthier than he was a week ago, so rookie Zach Charbonnet looks like he could be in store for another turn as Seattle's lead back.

No practice Monday

Walker (oblique) didn't practice Monday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

After suffering a strained oblique Week 11 at the Rams, Walker was listed as a non-participant in all three Week 12 injury reports before the Seahawks made him inactive for last Thursday's loss to the 49ers. He's opening Week 13 prep in a similar spot, but coach Pete Carroll did note Friday that the team is hopeful Walker is able to play Thursday in Dallas, even if he doesn't get much on-field work this week, per Brady Henderson of Walker thus will use Tuesday and Wednesday as a means to prove his health for Thursday's game. If Walker is limited or sidelined, though, Zach Charbonnet is set to lead Seattle's backfield, with DeeJay Dallas mixing in as well.

Chance he plays Week 13

Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that the team hopes Walker (oblique) will be able to suit up in Week 13 against the Cowboys, Brady Henderson of reports.

Carroll added that Walker's unlikely to do much in practice prior to the game against Dallas, which will be Seattle's second consecutive Thursday game. Walker sat out the 31-13 loss to San Francisco on Thanksgiving after hurting his oblique in Week 11 against the Rams. Zach Charbonnet started in place of Walker against the 49ers, but the rookie produced just 58 scrimmage yards on 18 touches in his first NFL start. Even if Walker ends up being available versus Dallas, he's unlikely to be cleared until shortly prior to game time based on Carroll's comments.

Officially inactive Thursday

Walker (oblique) is inactive for Thursday's game against the 49ers.

Walker seemed likely to miss at least one contest due to the strained oblique that he suffered this past Sunday versus the Rams after being listed as a DNP on all three of the Seahawks' Week 12 practice reports. However, coach Pete Carroll told Colin Gunther of the team's official site Wednesday that Walker received a doubtful designation "because you never know." It may not mean Walker has a chance to return next Thursday night at Dallas, but his status will continue to be monitored to see how realistic that may be. With Walker sidelined, Zach Charbonnet will pace Seattle's backfield, while DeeJay Dallas and Kenny McIntosh will be the reserve options.

Doubtful to play Thursday

Walker (oblique) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the 49ers, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.

Walker was expected to miss some time due to the oblique strain that he suffered Sunday versus the Rams, and he now is one step closer to sitting out his first game of the season, which will be confirmed about 90 minutes before Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff. He'll thus cede the Seahawks backfield to rookie second-round pick Zach Charbonnet, with DeeJay Dallas and Kenny McIntosh in reserve. Walker's next chance for game action is Thursday, Nov. 30 at Dallas.

Another DNP on Tuesday

Walker (oblique) was listed as a non-participant on Tuesday's injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

The Seahawks did get in some on-field work Tuesday, but Walker wasn't one of those who took part as he tends to a strained oblique that he suffered Sunday against the Rams. Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, coach Pete Carroll has called Walker's injury "legit," and another absence Wednesday may spur Seattle to rule out the running back ahead of Thursday's game versus the 49ers. Assuming Walker is inactive Week 12, Zach Charbonnet is in line to be the team's top running back, with potentially all of DeeJay Dallas (shoulder, FP this week), Kenny McIntosh and practice-squad member Bryant Koback available behind him.

DNP on Monday's practice estimate

Walker (oblique) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

This comes as no surprise after Walker was considered doubtful to return to Sunday's eventual loss at the Rams due to an oblique injury, which coach Pete Carroll called "legit" in the wake of the game, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. With a short week to prepare for Thursday's contest against the 49ers, he seems like a good bet to be unavailable Week 12, but Carroll said Monday that he doesn't consider Walker to be a candidate for injured reserve, per Schefter. Assuming Walker can't play Thursday, Zach Charbonnet is slated to lead the Seahawks backfield, with DeeJay Dallas, Kenny McIntosh and potentially practice-squad member Bryant Koback mixing in behind him.

Not currently an IR candidate

Coach Pete Carroll noted Monday that the Seahawks don't consider Walker (oblique) to be an IR candidate at this time, but acknowledged that the team needs to learn more about the running back's injury before determining how much time he might miss, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Given that Seahawks play Thursday night against the 49ers, Walker's Week 12 status is cloudy following his early departure from Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Rams. If he's unavailable versus San Francisco, Zach Charbonnet would be in line to lead the team's backfield, with DeeJay Dallas and Kenny McIntosh on hand to mix in.
