Seahawks Place Russell Wilson and Chris Carson in the casualty reserve; Tre Brown and Ethan Pocic activated by infrared – .


The Seahawks made official what seemed likely as soon as Russell Wilson underwent surgery on his injured right middle finger last week, putting the Pro-Bowl quarterback on the injured reserve ahead of Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh.

Running back Chris Carson, who suffered a neck injury, stopped him from playing last week and stopped him from training this week. The Seahawks filled those spots by activating two injured reserve players, cornerback Tre Brown and center Ethan Pocic.

Placing Wilson on the injured reserve makes it official that he will miss the first game of his 10-year NFL career, and also means he will miss at least three games before he can leave the IR. After this week’s game, the Seahawks host New Orleans in Week 7 and Jacksonville in Week 8 and then have Week 9 recess, so sooner Wilson or Carson can return to the action is Game of the Week 10 at Green Bay.

Wilson had started 165 straight games to start his career, playoffs included, and his 149 regular-season start streak was the longest active streak by an NFL quarterback and the sixth longest by a quarterback in the history of the NFL.

With Carson on the sidelines, the Seahawks will once again look to Alex Collins to lead the way, with DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer providing depth. Asked about Carson on Friday, Carroll said: “He had a really good jump over the weekend and felt a lot better, but coming out of there, starting to get back to work, there’s not enough progress. So it’s best for us to get it back and make sure we don’t rush it. we do it very well. So we are going to take care of him, it seems like the right decision. The jump he did was in his relief and he felt a lot better and stuff, but not ready to play yet. ”

Pocic, who was the Seattle starting center last season, entered the injured reserve in Week 1 with a knee injury, then returned to training this week.

Brown, a rookie from Oklahoma, will make his NFL debut when he takes the field, having been out since training camp ended with a knee injury.
