Madden (hamstring) was ruled out for Saturday's wild-card game at Dallas.
Madden was listed as doubtful with the hamstring issue, so his absence was to be expected. The Seahawks will go without a true fullback Saturday, but could utilize tight ends Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson as blockers out of the backfield, if necessary.
Madden (hamstring) is doubtful for Saturday's wild-card game against the Cowboys, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Madden is nursing a hamstring injury and appears on track to sit out Seattle's playoff opener. If the fullback is unable to suit up, tight ends Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson could see increased usage as blockers.
Madden (chest) is inactive for Monday's game against the Vikings.
Despite practicing in full on Friday, Madden will miss his second straight game with a sternum injury. The fullback is not a stat producer on offense, as he has only three rushes and two catches all season, but the Seahawks could use tight ends Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson to fill Madden's role as a blocker.
Madden appeared to be clear of the chest injury after practicing fully Friday, but was limited Saturday to earn the questionable tag. The 25-year-old still appears on track to play Monday given he still practiced in some capacity, but remains in danger of missing his second straight game.
Barring a setback, Madden will be ready to roll for Monday's game versus the Vikings. Madden spends a majority of the time on special teams and is mainly used on the offense as a blocker in short-yardage situations.
