Seahawks RB Chris Carson leaves Sunday Night Football in an air cast

The Seattle Seahawks got rolling in the second half against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night, and a big reason for that was running back Chris Carson.

But just as he helped the host Seahawks take over the game, Carson was injured and could be out for a long time.

On a run by Carson in the fourth quarter, his legs got pinned under a tackler and the rest of his body was then bent back over that tackler. The Seahawks’ medical staff rushed out to Carson before carting him off the field with an air cast on his left leg.

NBC cut to a quick commercial shortly after he went down making it difficult to determine what happened, but color commentator Cris Collinsworth’s uttering a sad “uhh,” made it clear that Carson’s injury was bad.

At the time of the injury, the Seahawks led 39-18. Seattle actually trailed at the half, 15-10.

A 2017 seventh-round pick out of Oklahoma State by the Seahawks, Carson entered the game with 166 yards on 37 carries on the season, and had 42 yards on 12 carries against the Colts before the injury. He also had 24 yards on 3 receptions.

It is hard to be optimistic about his 2017 season after watching him get carted off the field in an air cast, and in visible pain. All that can be done is hope that his pain will be relieved soon, and that he has a speedy recovery.
