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 has been placed on IR with his neck injury. He's out for at least the next 3 games. Seattle has a Week 9 bye, so Week 10 is the earliest we could see Carson back on the field. It's unclear if he'll even be ready then. Carson is certainly droppable if you're hard up for a roster spot. Alex Collins will serve as the Seahawks' lead back the next 3 weeks vs. the Steelers, Saints and Jaguars.
Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. the Steelers. HC Pete Carroll was hoping to get Carson back at practice this week, but it didn’t happen. His status for Week 7 and beyond is uncertain. Alex Collins gets another game as Seattle’s lead back and is a fine volume bet on Sunday night. But consider him just a RB3 or flex with Geno Smith under center and facing Pittsburgh’s 4th-ranked RB defense.
Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) remained sidelined on Thursday. It's bad news after HC Pete Carroll said yesterday that he expected Carson to practice today. At this point, he seems unlikely to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday night, giving RB Alex Collins another start. We'll get another update on Carson tomorrow.
Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) did not practice on Wednesday. He did participate in the walkthrough, HC Pete Carroll said, and the plan is to get him on the practice field on Thursday. So it sounds like Carson has a shot to play vs. the Steelers on Sunday night. Check back tomorrow for another update.
Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Friday that RB Chris Carson's status for Week 6 is uncertain due to a lingering neck injury. “This is a day-to-day thing with Chris. We have to see how he responds. The short week did not help him at all," Carroll said. "He’s got an old injury that you can see (in exams). It’s kind of, I don’t know if it’s chronic, but it occasionally pops up. It hasn’t been an issue in the past. He didn’t get hit, and that’s how he got hurt. It’s a condition he’s got probably from weightlifting and all of the stuff he’s done over the years. It could have been something a long time ago. It’s just flared up some, so we’re being real careful with him. He was too uncomfortable to play.” We'll keep an eye on Carson when the Seahawks get back to work next week. RB Alex Collins operated as Seattle's lead back with Carson out on Thursday night. Note that RB Rashaad Penny (calf) is eligible to come off IR in Week 7.
