  • Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Carson (ankle) recently experienced a setback in his recovery and is now considered a long shot to return from injured reserve this season, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Given that Carson is recovering from a severe high-ankle sprain and required surgery to address ligament damage below his knee in early October, it's remarkable that a late-season return was in play in the first place. The running back was expected to resume practicing in the near future, but after Carroll said the rookie had a "bit of ankle turn," Carson will be shut down for good, per Michael-Shawn Dugar of Carson, a seventh-round pick out of Oklahoma State who had taken over as Seattle's lead back prior to suffering the injuries in Week 4, could get an opportunity to reclaim that role in 2018 if he proves healthy in training camp.

  • Seahawks' Chris Carson: Could be back Week 15

    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Carson (ankle) is way ahead of schedule but probably still needs two weeks of practice before a return to games could be considered, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Should Carson resume practicing this week -- which isn't a sure thing by any means -- he could return from injured reserve as soon as Week 15 against the Rams. It would seem Week 16 or 17 is the more realistic target, and there's no assurance Carson returns to the lead role once he's healthy. Mike Davis gave the Seattle running game a much-needed boost in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Eagles, gaining 64 yards on 16 carries and 37 yards on four receptions.

  • Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Carson (ankle) could return from injured reserve at some point in December, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Carroll was less optimistic in the initial aftermath of Carson's injury, suggesting that the rookie probably wouldn't be a candidate to return from injured reserve. The rehab from Oct. 3 surgery apparently is going a bit better than expected, while the Seattle backfield has been even worse than anyone could've imagined. Eddie Lacy (ankle) and Thomas Rawls have combined for just 253 yards on 97 carries (2.6 average) with nary a touchdown, and C.J. Prosise (ankle) can't even stay healthy for long enough to get a chance. Carson's return would be a welcome development, even if it doesn't happen until late December or the playoffs (assuming Seattle qualifies). He's still a long shot to help out fantasy owners this season.

  • Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Carson (lower leg, ankle) has an "outside chance," at best, to return from injured reserve later this season, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Carson, who exited early in Sunday's win over the Colts with a high-ankle sprain and a fracture below the knee of his left leg, underwent successful surgery Tuesday to address the former issue, which is considered the more serious of the two injuries. The rookie's placement on IR on Monday ensures that he'll be unavailable for at least the next eight weeks, and given Carroll's comments, it appears more likely than not that Carson's season has come to an end. Carson's extended absence should pave the way for Thomas Rawls to reenter the Seahawks' backfield mix, but it's expected that Eddie Lacy, who rumbled for 52 yards on 11 carries in Week 4, will get the first opportunity to serve as the team's lead back. A healthy C.J. Prosise (ankle) could also see his snap count pick up with Carson out, though he's still projected to see most of his work on passing downs.

  • Seahawks' Chris Carson: Lands on injured reserve
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Seahawks placed Carson (leg) on injured reserve Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. In the wake of Sunday's game, Carson's diagnosis includes a fractured leg just below the knee and potentially a high-ankle sprain. There's no telling if he'll miss the rest of the regular season, but he'll be eligible for activation from IR on Sunday, Dec. 3 versus the Eagles, at the earliest. For the foreseeable future, Carson will yield his newfound role to some combination of Eddie Lacy, C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic. During Sunday's fateful contest, Prosise was sidelined with an ankle injury, leaving Lacy (11 carries for 52 yards) and McKissic (four rushes for 38 yards and one touchdown, plus one reception for 27 yards and another TD) to operate out of the backfield. Prosise could eat into McKissic's workload upon returning, while Lacy handles most of the first- and second-down work.
