According to Adam Schefter of ESPN Seattle Seahawks Chris Carson is done for the season with a hip fracture.
Carson was in the midst of a great season with 1230 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. Carson suffered a hip injury during the second quarter of the Seahawks’ disappointing 27-13 home loss to the Arizona Cardinals and he did not return. Pete Carroll made this statement after the game about the Carson injury.
“I don’t have that definitively, but my guys are telling me that, yes, it looks like (he’s out for the season),” Carroll told reporters after the game. Carroll said they’ll get final test results today.
With the news of Carson being out for the year and also running back, C.J. Prosise suffered a season-ending broken arm during the game. The Seahawks are reportedly talking with former Seahawk Marshawn Lynch about a possible return.
The Seahawks have lost three running backs in three consecutive weeks. To make matters worst Duane Brown the Seahawks starting tackle will have to have knee surgery today. Carroll spoke on this injury as well.
He needs to get his knee fixed,” Carroll said after the game. “He tried like crazy to get through it this week just couldn’t.”
There is a possibilty for Brown to return during the playoffs but it will depend on if the Seahawks advance.
