Alex Collins (abdomen) 'considerably better' for Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks running back Alex Collins (abdomen) is feeling "considerably better" in Week 14 than he did last week, per head coach Pete Carroll.

What It Means:

Collins seems to be on track to return for Sunday's matchup with the Houston Texans after he missed last week's game. Adrian Peterson is not expected to play and Travis Homer (calf, hamstring) could also be held out. Collins will likely handle most of the early-down work while Rashaad Penny and DeeJay Dallas mix in at other times.

numberFire's models project Collins to lead the Seahawks with 11.3 carries on Sunday and his projection will rise if Peterson is ruled out. The Texans have the No. 22 run defense in the NFL, according to our schedule-adjusted metrics.
