The Seattle Seahawks will likely be without starting running back Zach Charbonnet for the rest of the night as they take on the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium on Thursday Night Football. According to the team PR, he suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter and is doubtful to return.

This is unfortunate news for a number of reasons, in addition to the obvious. With Kenneth Walker already missing this game, the team is already struggling for depth at running back. DeeJay Dallas is the next man up. Kenny McIntosh was is active, but did not play any offensive snaps in the loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12, so the team may not turn to him in a crucial game that is close in the final minutes. The Dallas Cowboys have the ball in Seahawks territory with the clock dwindling, so the impact of this injury to the game remains to be seen. Stay tuned for further updates if his status changes.
