The Seahawks already had ruled out running back Chris Carson for this week. He also will miss a Week 7 game against New Orleans and a Week 8 game against Jacksonville after the Seahawks placed Carson on injured reserve.

He joins quarterback Russell Wilson on IR, with both players eligible to return to game action for the Week 10 game against Green Bay. The Seahawks’ bye is Week 9.

Carson has a neck injury.

“He made a really good jump over the weekend and felt way better, but coming out of that, starting to go back to work with it, there’s not enough progress made,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Friday, via John Boyle of the team website. “So it’s better for us to get him back and make sure that we don’t rush it back. And so we’re going to just take this time. It is a delicate thing. He’s got something going on in his neck, so we’ve got to make sure that we do it really well. So we’re going to take care of him. It just seems like the right decision. The jump that he made was in his relief, and he felt way better and all of that, but not ready to play yet.”

Alex Collins again will start with DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer providing depth.

The Seahawks filled Carson’s and Wilson’s roster spots by activating cornerback Tre Brown and center Ethan Pocic from injured reserve.

Pocic, who was Seattle’s starting center last season, went on injured reserve in Week 1 with a knee injury. He returned to practice this week. Brown, a rookie out of Oklahoma, injured a knee in training camp that has kept him out this season.

  1. Good lord the Seahawks are a sinking ship going down faster than the Titanic and SEA energetic gum chewing captain is going down w/ the wreckage….. Trading for Adams looks really bad considering the NYJs will own SEAs top 10-15 pick next year.

  2. Seattle Seahawks; The most dominant 1 year dynasty the league has ever seen. The longer they try to reload the more painful the eventual rebuild will end up being. Just keep trading away this first rounders, seems to be working well by the looks of it.

  3. This administrative move tells us nothing we didn’t already know. Russell was fully expected to be out until week 10, after the bye week. Carson was not day to day but going to need more time after a little workout to test his ongoing condition caused inflammation. Based on his history he would miss 3 weeks to get it under control. Both moves allow the team to bring up 2 more bodies to help in depth chart for the next few weeks.
