Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls was listed as doubtful heading into Sunday’s game against the 49ers because of a leg injury, but he’ll be out on their reports in the near future.
Coach Pete Carroll said on Monday that further evaluation of the injury showed “a little crack” in the bone that will sideline Rawls for the time being.
‘They were able to find a little something in there in the evaluations today that wasn’t clear a week ago,” Carroll said, via Curtis Crabtree of PFT and 950 KJR. “It makes sense for how uncomfortable he was feeling. He’s got a little crack there that we’ve just got to take care of and wait it out a little bit.”
Carroll said that injured reserve wasn’t a consideration for Rawls at the moment and that the running back won’t be “incapacitated” as a result of the injury.
Christine Michael ran 20 times for 105 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday. Alex Collins and Terrence Magee worked behind him with C.J. Prosise inactive with a hand injury.
