Chris Carson has overcome many hurdles. It seems he has another to clear.

The former Oklahoma State running back was carted off the field with an air cast during the fourth quarter of Seattle’s 46-18 victory against the Colts during Sunday Night Football. Carson landed awkwardly on his left leg after a tackle, and the severity of the injury is unknown.

Carson, a seventh-round draft pick earlier this year, emerged as the Seahawks’ top running back. He leads Seattle with 49 carries. Several offered Carson condolences on Twitter, including former Oklahoma State teammate Justice Hill.

Carson spent the 2015 and 2016 seasons with the Cowboys, rushing for 1,076 yards with 13 touchdowns in his career. He began his collegiate career at Butler Community College after suffering an ACL tear in his left knee, the same leg he injured Sunday night. He also missed four games during his senior season at Oklahoma State with an injured left hand.

Carson and Hill formed a dynamic duo for the Cowboys when the former returned from his injury, including rushing for a combined 300 yards in a victory against TCU. The hope now is Carson can recover from another injury and find success once more.
