Chris Carson Suffered Fractured Leg and Is ‘Going to Be Out’



One of the best stories of the early NFL season has taken an unfortunate turn. Former Oklahoma State running back and 7th-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks, Chris Carson, suffered an apparent leg injury late during the Seahawks’ game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll termed the injury “significant” after the game.

“We had a couple different reports here, but now we know that he did hurt his ankle significantly,” Carroll stated after the game. “We’ll see what that means when we get all the MRIs and all that stuff done.”

On Monday, Carroll appeared on a local ESPN radio program and stated that Carson’s injury was a fractured leg and probably a high ankle sprain. Further tests are being done but Carroll confirmed that Carson is “going to be out.”

A report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport also reported a leg fracture

Carson was injured late in the game with the Seahawks comfortably ahead of the Colts while being tackled by Jon Bostic. He was immediately put into an air cast and carted off the field.

Carson was one of the surprise rookie stories in the NFL this season, starting all four games ahead of veteran tailbacks Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise. The rookie leads Seattle with 208 rushing yards and added 59 receiving yards and a score.
