    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (leg, ankle) has 'a chance' to return from the Reserve/Injured list sometime in December, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

    Huddle Up: Carroll typically sees sunshine when most see clouds when it comes to injuries, so owners should be highly skeptical of this report. Carson reportedly suffered a fractured leg in addition to a high-ankle sprain, so it is highly possible he may not even be able to play in the postseason. However, if positive reports continued to come out of Seattle regarding his status, he was performing like a RB2 before getting hurt and the only Seahawk running back to experience any kind of success this season.

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (leg, ankle) underwent surgery on his left ankle Tuesday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: It's obviously the first of many steps for Carson to return sometime this season, although that is far from a guarantee - if not very unlikely - given how the complexity of his injuries. However, it is a positive he has already taken the first step. With that said, Carson can be dropped in all redraft leagues that don't have an IR spot.

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (ankle, leg) is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair his injured ankle. The team hopes Carson will be able to return late in the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Carson will be sidelined for at least eight weeks, so he will not be return until December at the earliest. Owners probably can drop Carson if they need to add another running back. Thomas Rawls is expected to take over the starting running back job and could be a flex option.

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (ankle, leg) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Oct. 2.

    Huddle Up: It appears Thomas Rawls is the favorite to take over the starting job, but Eddie Lacy and C.J. Prosise will also receive playing time. Rawls has had success as the starting running back and could be a flex option for owners if he receives a majority of the carries. Prosise probably will be involved in the passing game and will be valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (leg, ankle) has a broken bone high up in his left leg as well as a high ankle sprain, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who added Carson has not yet had an MRI to determine the full extent of the injury.

    Huddle Up: The most likely outcome has Carson landing on the Reserve/Injured list shortly, with the only thing to be determined is whether he can recover quickly enough to return before the end of the regular season, which seems unlikely. Carson can be dropped in all leagues without an IR spot. Thomas Rawls is expected to get the first crack at the starting job again, although Eddie Lacy will likely rotate in, making it a bit of a weekly headache fantasy owners if they choose to add one of them off waivers this week.

    Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (ankle) suffered a significant ankle injury, according to head coach Pete Carroll. He'll have an MRI Monday, Oct. 2.

    Huddle Up: Another one bites the dust, and the team will have to turn to Eddie Lacy or rookie J.D. McKissic. Thomas Rawls (ankle) could re-enter the fold depending on his health. The situation is a mess, and none of them are pegged higher than a bye-week filler for now.

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (leg) suffered an apparent lower-leg injury in the fourth quarter of the Week 4 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Carson was being tackled, had his leg pinned under him awkwardly before being bent back. It certainly looked awful on the telecast, and he was down for several minutes before having his leg immobilized in an air cast and then he was carted off. More info when we know it. Eddie Lacy and J.D. McKissic will see more totes in his stead.

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson finished with 11 carries for 34 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards and a touchdown in a 33-27 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: While Carson wasn't efficient running the ball, he did lead the backfield in carries once again and salvaged his stat line with a receiving score. He still looks like the lead back for the Seahawks and has RB2 potential against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 8:29pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson finished with a team-high 20 carries for 93 yards and caught one pass for seven yards in a 12-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Carson was given a chance to lead the backfield, and he performed well. If he is still available in your league, he should be one of the top waiver targets heading into Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 11:32am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson has 'done really well,' and head coach Pete Carroll is 'anxious to see how he grows with us and if his role can expand as we find out more stuff.'

    Huddle Up: Carson carried over his impressive preseason into the season opener against the Green Bay Packers, leading the team in snaps (26) and averaging 6.5 yards per carry while Eddie Lacy was held to three yards on five attempts and Prosise was limited to 11 yards on four carries. Starter Thomas Rawls is expected back this week, but his injury history makes Carson a strong hold or add in all leagues. Even with Rawls healthy, Carson may be on the verge of splitting carries with him.

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson carried six times for 39 yards in a 17-9 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Carson was by far the most effective of Seattle's backs, building on a strong preseason. He likely earned some more touches going forward, and Carson is worth stashing in case he emerges as the feature back down the road.

  • Posted: 8/25/2017 8:25pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed eight times for 46 yards and caught two passes for 44 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in the preseason Friday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: Carson has impressed throughout the preseason, but he is part of a crowded backfield. That being said, Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise are nursing injuries and Eddie Lacy is far from the picture of health. Carson is at least worth keeping in mind heading into the season, and he could be worth a gamble as a late-round lottery ticket.
