The Chris Carson timeline around his neck injury seems to change more than often. What went from a week-to-week basis, to potentially being done for the year, to now having a chance to suit up after the bye is certainly a storyline that is tough to hit the snooze button on if you care about staying on top of it.
However, the most recent news is certainly a positive for a Seattle Seahawks team that has relied heavily on running the ball this season.
Pete Carroll says Chris Carson "wants to go for it next week" playing at Green Bay Nov. 14 after the bye. Needs to check in with doctors next month on his neck condition, to see if he can get cleared to practice #Seahawks— Gregg Bell (@gbellseattle) November 1, 2021
Carson has not played since the team’s 28-21 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He was placed on injured reserve at the same time as Russell Wilson, so both him and Wilson are eligible to return for Seattle’s next game if they are ready.
When healthy, Carson is the undisputed bell-cow running back for Seattle. And with the Seahawks having their backs against the wall with two upcoming games against the Packers and Cardinals, two of the NFC’s best, the return of Carson would be a major bonus.
