RB: Chris Carson

Seahawks RB Chris Carson will undergo season-ending neck surgery.

Coach Pete Carroll said Carson is having the surgery now "so that he can come back and play next season" on the final year of his contract. There is a void in his deal between now and then, but both Russell Wilson and Carroll will likely lobby to keep the 27-year-old around. Carson totaled 54 carries through four games in 2021, averaging 13.5 rushes and 1.5 targets per outing, before suffering his ongoing injury. Some combination of Alex Collins, Travis Homer, Rashaad Penny, and DeeJay Dallas will continue running in Carson's stead. SOURCE: Curtis Crabtree on Twitter Nov 19, 2021, 4:57 PM ET
