Chris Carson has been the latest NFL star to miss a bulk of time with a lingering injury. Last night Carson was absent from his fourth straight game, as the Seattle Seahawks were victorious over the Arizona Cardinals. It sounds like this will be his final missed start however.
Carson had been a top running back before his injury, with 4.9 yards per carry in 2020. Underrated since he was drafted, Carson has been a steal for the Seattle franchise, taking over this backfield after Marshawn Lynch with a seamless transition.
It will be a relief for all Seahawks fans if Carson returns. He has become one of the most reliable rushers in the league when he's on the field, averaging 80-plus rushing yards per game the last two seasons. While his ground yardage has been down a bit in 2020 behind a poor offensive line, his receiving totals have gone up steadily each year, reaching 24.5 YPG this season.
Pete Carroll can't wait to get his RB1 back, with this offense struggling while he's been gone. The Seahawks have lost two out of four games that Carson has been out, and Russell Wilson has been notably worse without him. This news couldn't come quicker for both teammates and fans alike.
