Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson is good. He’s also banged up. For the last few weeks, Carson has been listed as questionable to play only to be pulled late and sit out. He’s a frustrating player to have on your Fantasy Football team, but Carson doesn’t care one bit about your team.
Chris Carson’s up-and-down season
When Chris Carson has been on the football field, he’s been very solid. He’s a tough runner who has also been a big part of the Seattle Seahawks’ passing game. Carson has played in just six games for the Seahawks this season, and in his last two, he’s rushed a combined 13 times. He injured his foot in a Week 7 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He had previously suffered a knee injury in a victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
In the season opener, Carson carried the ball just six times for 21 yards, but he also caught six passes, two going for touchdowns. He has cored at least once in four of the six games he’s played. For the season, Carson has 323 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He’s also caught 22 passes for 147 yards and three touchdowns.
Carson carried the ball five times in the Week 7 loss to the Cardinals, Seattle’s first loss of the year. He injured his foot during the game and missed the second half. He’s been diagnosed with a sprained foot as hasn’t played since.
Carson questionable again for rematch with the Cardinals
Chris Carson has sat out the last two full weeks, nursing his sprained foot. His Seattle Seahawks take on the Arizona Cardinals in a key Thursday Night Football matchup and Carson is again listed as questionable. NFL Insider Adam Schefter tweeted that Carson is “unlikely to play” Thursday night.
Carson’s absence has clearly affected the Seahawks. He, along with backup Carlos Hyde, have missed time. The Seahawks, after starting the season 5-0, dropped their first game against the Cardinals, falling 37-34 in overtime. Carson was injured during that game.
Since then, they are 1-2. Quarterback Russell Wilson, once the favorite in the MVP voting, has struggled, trying to do too much on his own. Since that Week 7 Cardinals game, Wilson has thrown seven interceptions.
Carson gave out his address to a Fantasy Football complainer
One very unhappy Fantasy Football owner voiced his displeasure with Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson not playing the last couple of weeks. The owner sent Carson a DM on Instagram, telling Carson to tape up his foot and play in an expletive-filled way. Carson responded with a few expletives of his own.
“Come make me play,” Carson wrote, according to a screenshot in the New York Post. The frustrated fan asked what his address was. Carson responded with a Washington address, saying “Yo ass better pull up too.”
Carson is concerned about getting healthy. He’s focused on getting the Seahawks back on the winning track. He doesn’t care at all about your Fantasy Football team.
