Trysten Hill tears ACL two weeks after hurting Chris Carson

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas Cowboys’ DT Trysten Hill was fined a couple bucks over $6,000 for that bizarre gator roll he performed on Chris Carson in Week 3. Carson suffered a sprained knee and didn’t play the rest of that game.

Well, now Hill is missing time, but not at the hands of the league. Hill is out for the remainder of the season with an ACL injury.

What even is karma, anyway?

At just five weeks into the season, this could go down as the worst season in NFL history for players’ knees. Later on in the game, Dallas lost star quarterback Dak Prescott for the season to a horrible ankle break that left many players on the field visibly shaken after such an unfortunate play.

Meanwhile, the Seattle Seahawks are incredibly fortunate that Carson, who’s yet to play an entire season, recovered in time to play against the Miami Dolphins in Week 4 and tallied a rushing TD against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Seattle brought in Carlos Hyde to be insurance for a banged up running room. Fortunately, Hyde hasn’t been needed over the previous two weeks as Carson has posted over six yards per carry during that span. Carson has maintained his health and effectiveness into the bye week through hard hits and limited opportunities.
