Shark Bites

Seahawks RB Chris Carson is expected to have season-ending neck surgery, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's no real surprise given the progression of his season so far. It leaves Alex Collins as the primary ball-carrier. He's been dealing with a groin injury but carries no game status into the weekend. Travis Homer claimed the backfield pass-catching lead at Green Bay in Week 10 but had only totaled 3 targets over his previous 4 games.

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.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) did not practice on Wednesday. “What I would say is that we didn’t make the positive progress that we had hoped," HC Pete Carroll said. "We are still working with it. I don’t have a good update, so if you don’t mind, you have to wait a couple of days and we will have more. He didn’t make the positive progress forward that we wanted, so we just have to wait.” Carson seems like a long shot to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend. And we wouldn't be surprised if Seattle chose to shut him down for the season.

Seahawks RB Chris Carson (neck) won't play vs. the Packers on Sunday, HC Pete Carroll said. Carson returned to practice this week but hasn't been cleared to play by doctors. If and when he'll get that clearance is uncertain. Alex Collins should continue to operate as Seattle's lead back this weekend, but Rashaad Penny, Travis Homer and DeeJay Dallas all mixed in last time we saw the Seahawks.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll labeled RB Chris Carson (neck) a game-time decision for Sunday’s tilt with the Packers. Carson was designated to return from IR this week, but Seattle still needs to activate him by 4 pm ET on Saturday if he’s going to play on Sunday. Stay tuned.
