The Seahawks could have rookie running back C.J. Prosise (shoulder) back this Saturday when they take on the Falcons in Atlanta. Coach Pete Carroll said that Prosise will only be cleared for the Divisional Round if he can go "full speed" in practice. If he is cleared, the speedy Prosise would be a nice complement to the more bruising Thomas Rawls in Seattle's backfield.

The only small bit of injury news affecting the Falcons is that tight end Austin Hooper (knee) could return from a three-week absence to play on Saturday. The rookie didn't have a huge role in Atlanta's No. 1-ranked offense but he's a solid red zone target nonetheless. Julio Jones, Taylor Gabriel and corner Robert Alford are all expected to be healthy for this weekend's game.
