Chris Carson relieved he won’t need hip surgery

Seahawks running back Chris Carson still is using crutches, but his goal is a return in time for training camp.

“I’ve been through this before,” Carson said Monday, via audio from Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR and PFT. “So I know how to attack it. I know the process and how everything goes, so I’m just ready to get back.”

Coach Pete Carroll already had revealed that Carson wouldn’t need surgery on his injured hip. That came as a relief to Carson.

“I’m thankful I didn’t have to get surgery,” Carson said. “That’s the biggest thing for me mentally. I’m good, 100 percent, as good as I can be, you know what I mean? I’m good. I’m fine.”

Carson injured his hip in Week 16 against the Cardinals, ending his season. He finished his third season with a career-high 278 carries for a career-high 1,230 yards and tied his career-high with nine total touchdowns.

  1. Good he doesn’t need surgery, Seattle really missed him against in the last 3 games.

    Had he played, they may have won them given how close the games were.

    Hope he heals up clean, no complications, and I hope young penny is doing ok as well.

    Next season they should roll with Carson, Penny and Homer. Prosise has to go

  2. Seahawks and injuries go hand in hand. Bottom line, Carson couldn’t finish out either of the last 2 seasons and has never made it to a playoff game. Seattle will be right back in the same situation if they don’t go out and get another starting back. Prosise Is long gone and never was, Penny won’t be anything of note for 2020 recovering from the knee injury, Homer looks like the teams 3rd down back, and Carson won’t hold up, if Pete sticks around for 2020, I sure hope he makes sure they have another high end running option.
