Chris Carson’s fumbles are major problem for Seahawks
Chris Carson has had a major fumbling problem this season, and that’s an issue for him and the Seattle Seahawks.
Carson broke a big 23-yard run in the second quarter on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. However, he was stripped of the ball at the end of his run and the Saints picked it up and returned it for a touchdown to go up 13-7.
On the team’s next possession, Carson was replaced in favor of C.J. Prosise for most of the drive. The Seahawks did give Carson the ball twice in a row on 3rd-and-1 and 4th-and-1, and he was stuffed both times.
The fumbles are a serious problem for Carson this season. He has lost a fumble in every game this season. Comparatively, he did not lose a fumble as a rookie in 2017 but lost two last season.
Seattle’s running backs coach noted about Carson that “he holds onto the ball loose as is,” according to CBS. CBS said that the fumbles were an issue they have been working on this season.
