Chris Carson retires due to neck injury

Seahawks RB Chris Carson is retiring from the NFL, per insider Ian Rapoport. According to Rapoport, Seattle will officially release him with a failed physical designation. It’s not a surprise, as Carson’s been sidelined with a neck injury since Week 4 of last season. His career ends with 769 carries for 3,502 yards and 24 TDs. Seattle moves forward with a 1-2 punch of Rashaad Penny and Kenneth Walker.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson admits that he has "no timeline" for return from his November neck surgery. “Not trying to rush it, I’m just trying to take it one day at a time,” Carson said. “Just keep rehabbing, keep getting better. Keep building strength and then go from there." The Seahawks re-signed RB Rashaad Penny and drafted RB Kenneth Walker this offseason, so they're not banking on having Carson available this season. He's nothing more than a late-round flier in early fantasy drafts.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that he expects RB Chris Carson to be ready for the start of training camp. Carson underwent cervical-fusion neck surgery in November to attempt to alleviate his long-term discomfort. We'll keep an eye on his rehab. Carson will turn 28 a few days after the 2022 season kicks off and is set to count $6.4 million against the cap this year.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson will undergo cervical-fusion neck surgery, HC Pete Carroll said. “So that’s a surgery that can get him back somewhere late in the spring, is what I’ve heard," Carroll added. The team believes this surgery will solve the long-term neck discomfort that Carson has dealt with, according to insider Gregg Bell. Bell, though, cites a 2016 study that found that only two-thirds of NFL players who had this surgery returned to play. The average timeline for return was 9 months, which would put Carson back on the field in August. We'll monitor his rehab this offseason.
