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 Seahawks host the Chiefs in Week 16.
Carson rushed 22 times for 90 yards and a touchdown in Monday's win over the Vikings.
Carson was the leader in the backfield once again, doubling up the 11 carries Rashaad Penny and Mike Davis combined for. The Seahawks rushed Carson six times on their final offensive drive in the fourth quarter, and he rewarded their decision, punching in a two-yard score -- the eventual game-winner -- to make it a two-possession game. Carson and the Seahawks will head to San Francisco in Week 15.
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.
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.
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 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.
