For the second season in a row, Kenneth Walker was an early exit from the Seattle Seahawks’ road game against the Los Angeles Rams. The star running back suffered an injury in the opening quarter of the team’s 17-16 loss and did not return. UCLA rookie Zach Charbonnet shouldered all but one carry for the remainder of the afternoon.
In the post-game press conference, Pete Carroll revealed that Walker strained his oblique muscle. Even worse? Carroll said it’s “legit” so it’s full panic stations on the health of Walker.

Walker has had minor injuries here and there that have caused him to miss two games thus far, but he’s had a clean scorecard this season in terms of games missed. Looks like that’s going to come to an end and Zach Charbonnet will be RB1 moving forward. DeeJay Dallas will move up to the role of RB2.
Kenny McIntosh? Time to step up, rookie. You’re probably about to get some touches soon.
