Seahawks Issue Great Health Update Ahead Of Eagles Game
The Seahawks issued a great health update ahead of the Eagles game.
In Week 16, running back Chris Carson became the latest Seattle player to suffer a season-ending injury. His back-ups, Rashaad Penny and C.J. Prosise, also got hurt.
Carson had a strong 2019 campaign, recording 1,230 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground through the first 15 weeks of the season.
In 2018, Carson put up 1,151 yards and nine touchdowns through 14 games.
Given the severity of his ailment, many just assumed it would require surgery.
On Wednesday, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll offered some good news.
“As a matter of fact, I saw Chris yesterday and he was in very good spirits because of that,” Carroll said.
“It’s still quite an and extensive recovery, but he has no surgery and he doesn’t have to undergo any of those issues. He was really thrilled about that.
“The recovery will be as quickly as possible. He was really of good attitude about it and all that. He’s a great worker. We don’t have any problem expecting him to come back.”
Getting Carson back healthy next season will obviously be a huge boost for Seattle’s offense.
In the meantime, the team went out and signed Marshawn Lynch to fill the void.
The Seahawks will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend in the opening round of the NFL playoffs.
