    Seahawks' Chris Carson: Recovering from knee concern

    Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Chris Carson "had a little work done" on his knee, John Boyle of the Seattle Seahawks' official site reports.Carroll didn't elaborate on the aforementioned "work," but he expects Carson to return to the field in a few weeks. While he focuses on rehab and recovery, his backfield mates will get some high-profile reps during OTAs. Among the most interesting is 2018 first-round pick Rashaad Penny, who managed 494 yards from scrimmage and two TDs on 94 touches working behind Carson and current Bears back Mike Davis. The depth chart is rounded out by J.D. McKissic, C.J. Prosise (abdomen) and 2019 sixth-rounder Travis Homer.

    Seahawks' Chris Carson: Not guaranteed No. 1 job

    Coach Pete Carroll said Chris Carson will be pushed for playing time by Rashaad Penny, but he expects the pair to form a one-two punch, John Boyle of the Seattle Seahawks official site reports. "I don't know who's one and who's two, it doesn't matter to me. I thought both guys did a really good job this year," Carroll said. "There's plenty of room for both guys."Carson was easily No. 1 in the Seahawks' backfield last season, as he registered 4.7 YPC while accruing 1,151 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground and complementing that production with 20 catches for 163 yards. Penny showed explosiveness and plenty of potential in his rookie season, but he battled injuries which may have hindered his production. Carroll acknowledged that the two have different running styles and he'll deploy them both either way, but it's simply a matter of how the snaps will be divided. There's plenty of room for both, as the Seahawks averaged the second-most rush attempts per game (33.4) in 2018. While Penny will be given a chance to steal snaps in training camp, fantasy owners should understand Carson led the league with 45 broken tackles and ranked second in the league with 3.4 yards after contact, according to Pro Football Focus. Fade his projection appropriately, but Carson is still the front runner for the No. 1 job.

    Seahawks' Chris Carson: Nowhere to run during loss

    Chris Carson generated 20 yards on 13 carries and minus-1 yard on two catches in Saturday's loss to the Cowboys.Carson finished the regular season with three straight games of at least 116 rushing yards, managing four touchdowns in that span. However, the Cowboys put up a force field on the line of scrimmage in this outing and held Carson to just 1.5 yards per carry. For comparison, he dropped below 4.0 YPC just twice this year, with his worst mark (3.2) coming in Week 3, also against Dallas. The playoff blemish will leave a bad taste in the mouth for an otherwise promising season where Carson averaged 4.7 YPC and racked up 1,151 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground while catching 20 passes for 163 yards. Carson's understudy, rookie Rashaad Penny, showed glimpses of explosive ability this season, but Carson's consistency kept him as the clear-cut No. 1 back in Seattle's run-heavy offense. After expending a first-round pick on Penny in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks will likely give Penny an opportunity to earn a greater share of the workload in 2019, so this could be a battle that starts in the offseason program and continues into training camp.

    Seahawks' Chris Carson: Over 100 yards rushing once again

    Chris Carson ran for 122 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries, adding a seven-yard reception during Sunday's 27-24 win against the Cardinals.Carson is red hot going into a wild card matchup against the Cowboys top-five rush defense. The 2017 seventh-round pick averaged 111.8 rushing yards per game over the final quarter of the regular season, while recording a touchdown in four consecutive outings for the first time in his career. He's developed into a bona fide workhorse back in his second pro season with 19.5 carries per game and six 100-yard outings since Week 3, heading into a wild card showdown with a Dallas front seven that's surrendered two 100-yard rushers over the past three weeks, but that otherwise hasn't allowed a 60-yard rusher since Week 9.

    Seahawks' Chris Carson: Reaches paydirt twice

    Chris Carson rushed 27 times for 116 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Chiefs.Carson continues to be the focal point of the backfield with Rashaad Penny (knee) out and Mike Davis receiving just seven carries. He piled up over 100 rushing yards for the second straight game and the fifth time this season despite not having a rush over 17 yards in this contest. Both of his scores in this outing came on rushes within the five-yard line, and he now has seven rushing touchdowns in eight contests since the bye week. Carson's keen ability to evade defenders and break tackles will keep him atop the pecking order for Week 17's game versus the Cardinals and into the playoffs.

    Seahawks' Chris Carson: Best outing of season

    Chris Carson rushed 22 times for 119 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's overtime loss to the 49ers. He also caught all six targets for 29 yards.Carson found the end zone for the fourth time in five games by punching in a one-yard score early in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 20. Without Rashaad Penny (knee) in the equation, Carson dominated the backfield while Mike Davis and J.D McKissic combined for just seven carries. The second-year pro capitalized on his opportunity and produced career bests with six catches and 148 scrimmage yards. Carson will look to keep the momentum rolling when the Seattle Seahawks host the Chiefs in Week 16.

    Seahawks' Chris Carson: Practices in full

    Chris Carson (finger) was a full practice participant Friday, John Boyle of the Seattle Seahawks' official site reports.Recovering from a dislocated finger, Carson started the week limited before quickly upgrading to full participation. It's possible the Seahawks reduce his pass-catching work in Monday's game against Minnesota, but he should be fine to handle his usual role as the lead ballcarrier.

    Seahawks' Chris Carson: Limited by dislocated finger

    Chris Carson (finger) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.In a Week 13 win against the 49ers, Carson earned his third-highest offensive snap share (58.3 percent) in a given game this season, leading fellow running backs Rashaad Penny (20.7) and Mike Davis (17.2). While he racked up 100-plus yards from scrimmage (108, to be exact) for the fourth time in 10 contests, Carson emerged with a dislocated finger. His ability to practice Thursday bodes well for his availability for Monday's game versus the Vikings, but he may take a step back as a pass catcher due to the injured appendage.

    Seahawks' Chris Carson: Diagnosed with finger dislocation

    Chris Carson expects to be fine after dislocating his finger in Sunday's 43-16 win over the 49ers, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.Carson was deemed questionable to return when he left for the locker room midway through the fourth quarter of a blowout victory. The Seattle Seahawks had no incentive to bring him back, instead letting Carson finish with 13 carries for 69 yards and three receptions for 39 yards on four targets. The injury shouldn't impact his availability for Week 14 against Minnesota, but it could open up a bit more pass-catching work for Mike Davis or Rashaad Penny. Coach Pete Carroll said Carson is expected to be fine, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Carson gets an extra day to recover with the Seahawks playing on Monday in Week 14.
