Seahawks place RB Chris Carson on injured reserve

The Seattle Seahawks placed running back Chris Carson on injured reserve Friday with a neck injury, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.  That means  Carson must miss the next three games, beginning Sunday night at Pittsburgh and home games Oct. 25 against New Orleans and Oct. 31 against Jacksonville.

Carson also missed last Thursday’s game against the Rams. But there was optimism he would play when Carroll said Monday that Carson had taken a significant, positive turn in his recovery and said Wednesday that Carson would practice Thursday.

Instead, Carson did not practice all week and now finds himself guaranteed to miss at least four games this year — the Rams game and the next three — with some increasing concern as to how severe his injury is and if he could miss additional time down the road.

Carroll said Friday that the initial optimism this week was based on how Carson felt in the few days following the Rams game.

“He made a really good jump over the weekend and felt way better,” Carroll said. “But coming out of that starting to go back to work with it, there’s not enough progress made. And so it’s better for us to get him back and make sure that we don’t rush him back. … The jump, that he made was in his relief and he felt way better and all of that, but not ready to play yet.’’
