Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls broke his ankle on the game’s first drive Sunday in Baltimore and is done for the season.
Rawls, an undrafted rookie, carried six times for 44 yards before suffering the injury. He’s performed well in the absence of Marshawn Lynch even as Russell Wilson and the passing game have taken off.
Wilson has thrown at least three touchdown passes in four straight games. He threw five touchdown passes Sunday as Seahawks rolled over the Ravens, 35-6.
Fred Jackson probably becomes the primary runner with Rawls out, though DuJuan Harris ran 18 times for 42 yards Sunday. Whether Lynch can return this season remains uncertain.
Harris, 27, was previously with the Packers. He signed with the Seahawks following Lynch’s injury last month.
Jackson signed with the Seahawks in training camp after being cut by the Bills.
Rawls also tore ligaments in his ankle, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. An undrafted rookie, Rawls ran for 391 yards in the three games previous to Sunday.
