Chris Carson injury: Seahawks RB suffers from sprained knee after Trysten Hill deliberately twists his leg


Late night update: Seahawks reporter Bob Condotta learns from a league source that “these early indications show Carson’s injury was significant.” Pete Carroll will likely have more of the injury on Monday.

Post-match update: Pete Carroll told media after the game that Carson suffered a sprained knee, per reporter Brady Henderson. There are no further details, but Carson will likely receive an MRI on Monday to assess the injury.

End of game update: The Seahawks recovered the ball briefly but Russell Wilson took a knee to get out of the lap. Carson did not return to the game but was spotted on the bench by journalists Bob Condotta. That he didn’t go to the locker room for x-rays right away is a potentially good sign.

UPDATE: Carson went to the blue medical tent after limping off the field. The Seahawks scored shortly thereafter and the ball is unlikely to return in this game unless the Cowboys tie up and force overtime. If that doesn’t happen, we’ll have to see what Pete Carroll has to say after the game.

The Seattle Seahawks are behind the Dallas Cowboys in the fourth quarter of Week 3, and they suffered a potentially difficult loss. Running back Chris Carson carried the ball for two yards at the 3:03 mark and after play he was down and in pain. The coaches came out to watch him and he limped off the field.

Video from the play shows Cowboys defenseman Trysten Hill appearing to roll and apply excessive force to Carson’s angle or knee.

At the time of the injury, Carson had 64 rushing yards and 12 receiving yards. Carlos Hyde is his main replacement and Travis Homer is said to have a job, too.
