Chris Carson to undergo ankle surgery, could return this season

Chris Carson RB

Chris Carson will undergo surgery on his ankle and could potentially return this season for the Seahawks, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said Monday.

Carson suffered a significant leg injury during the fourth quarter of Sunday night’s win over the Indianapolis Colts. He is believed to have suffered a fracture below the knee as well as a high ankle sprain.

Carroll told the media that Carson will undergo surgery on his ankle Tuesday and that the rookie also has an outside shot of returning this season.

Carson was officially placed on injured reserve Monday and could return after eight weeks.

Carson had worked his way up the depth chart from 7th-round pick to featured back over the past few weeks. Thomas Rawls, C.J. Prosise, Eddie Lacy and J.D. McKissic will likely pick up the carries in Carson’s absence.
