The Seattle Seahawks currently sit at the bottom of the NFC West with a 3-6 record, having also lost four of their last five games. It certainly doesn't help that starting running back Chris Carson hasn't played since Week 5 due to a neck injury.

Unfortunately, the Carson injury update doesn't provide much optimism.

Chris Carson Injury Update

The News Tribune's Gregg Bell reported Thursday that Carson likely "won’t play this weekend" again. On Wednesday, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told reporters that Carson isn't even ready yet to resume practice.

Carson practiced twice in Week 10, which led to some believing he could've possibly suited up last Sunday. That didn't go as planned due to his neck not being fully healed and he's been sidelined ever since.

Alex Collins has served as Seattle's No. 1 RB in Carson's absence. He's been mostly underwhelming, recording 268 rushing yards (71 attempts) and a touchdown in his last five games.

Seattle has averaged just 15.6 points per game ever since Carson went down — fourth-worst in that span. It didn't help that Russell Wilson was also injured three games, however, it goes without saying that the Seahawks' offense is still lacking without their top rusher.

Regardless, Seattle will attempt to turn its season around in a Week 11 clash against the division-leading Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks are currently the slight 1.5-point underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
