Report: Chris Carson’s mid-foot sprain not considered to be significant

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Billy Hardiman-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks suffered a number of losses in Week 7 against the Cardinals, including the game itself. Among those losses was running back Chris Carson, who exited the game in the first half after playing 15 snaps and did not return.

After the game, Pete Carroll told reporters Carson had suffered a mid-foot sprain and would require an MRI in order to know the severity. While the results of the MRI are not yet known, Monday morning began with some optimism around Carson’s health, with the Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta reporting that Carson’s mid-foot sprain is not considered significant.

While Carlos Hyde performed well in Carson’s absence against Arizona, it would be great news for Seattle to have Carson available in Week 8—especially if Travis Homer’s knee contusion keeps him out of the lineup.

Though a timeline on Carson’s recovery, however short or long it may be, won’t be known until after the MRI, it’s looking good for the tailback so far. Expect further updates on Carson and Homer, among others, later on Monday.
