Carson, a 7th-round pick by Seattle, broke his ankle/leg in Week 4 against the Colts and was placed on IR after undergoing surgery.
Though he hasn’t played in over two months, Carson remarkably remains the Seahawks’ leading rusher among running backs (not including Russell Wilson) with 208 yards on the season. In recent weeks, Mike Davis and JD McKissic have produced for Seattle’s offense coming out of the backfield, but they no doubt would love to have Carson back. They could have him ready for either the end of the regular season or playoffs.
