NFL Update: Mason Rudolph, Chris Carson Suffer Season-Ending Injuries

And Justice finally got his first NFL TD.




It was a rough week for former Cowboys in the NFL with a couple of Oklahoma State alums suffering season-ending injuries. Let’s check in by looking at the top three storylines for Pokes in the Pros from the NFL’s penultimate week.

Chris Carson Done for the Year

The former Cowboy tailback suffered a fractured hip during the Seahawks’ 27-13 loss to the Cardinals and has been ruled out for the year.

Carson will end his third season as the No. 5 rusher in the NFL with 1,230 yards and seven touchdowns, good for 10th in the league.

With that news, and the injury to C.J. Prosise, the Seahawks were down to one rostered running back heading into their season finale and eyeing a playoff run. Now it appears they will add Marshawn Lynch, the aging future HOFer who last played for the Raiders in 2018, but played his best years in Seattle.

Rudolph In, Rudolph Out

A month ago, Mason Rudolph was relegated to bench duties in Pittsburgh in favor of  Devlin Hodges. On Sunday he spelled Hodges after two interceptions by the undrafted rookie during the Steelers’ 16-10 loss to the New York Jets.

Rudolph subbed in and turned in a 14-of-20 outing for 129 yards and a touchdown. But before any good thing could last, Rudolph left the game with a shoulder injury. And the bad news keeps on coming.

Rudolph is just two years into his four-year rookie contract but is likely to be behind at least Ben Roethlisberger in 2020.

Justice Gets on the Board

After an exciting preseason from the Ravens’ fourth-round pick, Justice Hill’s rookie campaign has been somewhat underwhelming. Through 15 games with the AFC’s top-seeded team, Justice has totaled just 186 rushing yards — but he did find the end zone for the first time as a pro on Sunday.

The rookie has been stuck behind the likes of Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards. And that’s on a team where your leading rusher is your QB in MVP favorite Lamar Jackson. Justice should get a bigger chance to show what he can do in the Ravens’ regular season finale against James Washington and the Steelers with Ingram being ruled out with a calf strain.
