Chris Carson doubtful to return vs Chargers

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson left Sunday’s game against the LA Chargers with a leg injury and he is doubtful to return.

Carson was said to have his thigh wrapped late in the second half as he sat on the sidelines. Mike Davis took over and has rushed eight times for 28 yards as of this writing. Rookie Rashaad Penny could also see a heavier workload and he has three carries for 14 yards at the moment, which is the early third quarter. Carson had eight carries for 40 yards before exiting.

This is of course an ongoing concern for Carson, who missed 12 games in 2017 with a broken ankle and sat out a game earlier this season. He was listed as questionable going into the game due to a groin injury. The Seahawks have C.J. Prosise inactive this week, limiting them to Davis, Penny, and Tre Madden should Carson not return.

Strong safety Bradley McDougald also exited the game and has been replaced by Delano Hill.
