Pete Carroll Says Seahawks RB Chris Carson Will Play Sunday Despite Missing Wednesday Practice

Chris Carson didn’t practice Wednesday but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says he expects his lead running back to play Sunday when the Seahawks host the undefeated Los Angeles Rams in a key NFC West game, Gregg Bell of the Tacoma Tribune reports.

“Yeah, he should be fine,” Carroll said before practice of Carson. “We are going to go light on him (Wednesday). He did the morning part of the work. And then (Thursday) he should be full go.”

Carson missed Wednesday’s practice with the same hip issue that had him limited in practices Wednesday, Thursday and Friday last week, then caused the starter to miss last weekend’s win at Arizona. Mike Davis went from third-string back to fill-in starter, and rushed for a career high 101 yards on 21 carries in Seattle’s 20-17 victory.

Carson hasn’t been full go since Sept. 23 when he ran 32 times, by far the most in his two NFL seasons, for 102 yards in the Seahawks’ 24-13 win over Dallas.
