Carson inactive | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is inactive for today’s game against the Rams. Mike Davis should serve as Seattle’s lead back and is an upside RB2 in fantasy lineups. RBs Rashaad Penny and C.J. Prosise are also active for the ‘Hawks.

Recent Shark Bites

Seahawks GM John Schneider said that RB Chris Carson should be ready for the start of the season, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. Carson sustained a season-ending hip fracture on Dec. 22. We'll certainly be watching this progress through the offseason and training camp. Schneider also said he's "less confident" about RB Rashaad Penny being ready in time, according to Henderson. Penny tore the ACL and sustained other damage in his left knee on Dec. 8. If he hobbles through 2020, Seattle might have a tougher decision to make on whether to pick up the 2022 option on his rookie contract. The whole situation carries plenty of risk for early best-ball drafting. Carson sits 16th among RBs in current BestBall10 ADP; RB19 in FFPC drafting.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson doesn't need surgery on his fractured hip, he told reporters last week. He added that he hopes to resume running by the start of Seattle's offseason program but wouldn't commit to being ready for training camp. That's a reminder that this is a significant injury he'll be returning from. We'll keep a close eye on his rehab throughout the offseason.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson does not need surgery for the hip injury that ended his season, HC Pete Carroll said. Carroll added that Carson's rehab will be "somewhat extensive" but that he's expected to be ready for the start of training camp. We'll monitor his progress this offseason.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said after Sunday's loss to the Cardinals that RBs Chris Carson (hip) and C.J. Prosise (arm) are both out for the season. Ouch. Seattle figures to add a RB this week, but Travis Homer will now be atop the depth chart. The 6th-round rookie finished with 16 yards on 5 carries but 6 catches for 26 more yards vs. Arizona. He goes 5'10, 201 pounds and earned a 79th percentile SPARQ score in pre-draft testing. Homer will be a volume-based fantasy starter vs. the 49ers next weekend.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson injured his hip in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Cardinals and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one. RB C.J. Prosise is done for the day with an arm injury. That leaves Travis Homer as Seattle's only healthy RB.

Update: Carson has been ruled out.
