Seahawks OC Brian Schottenheimer said Tuesday that he's looking to get RB Chris Carson more targets this year. "We need to get him more involved in the passing game," Schotty said. "He’s got unbelievable hands, and he’s a problem for people coming out of the backfield." Carson saw just 24 targets last season but caught 20 of them for 162 yards (8.2 YPC). He ranked 19th in Pro Football Focus' receiving grades among 62 RBs with 20+ targets. Carson has reportedly been splitting out wide in camp -- something he rarely did last year. Increased passing-game usage would obviously be a boon to Carson's season-long upside and week-to-week reliability. He remains a nice value at his mid-5th-round ADP.

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.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (shoulder) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was added on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. He's safe to keep in fantasy lineups for Sunday's game against the Browns. RB Rashaad Penny (hamstring) is listed as questionable, despite putting in full practices all week. We'll check on his status Sunday morning.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson was added to the injury report on Thursday as limited with a shoulder. ESPN's Brady Henderson notes that the team made Carson available to the media, "something they typically don't do with players whose statuses are in serious question." Carson should be fine for Sunday's game against the Browns, but check back tomorrow for another update.
