3 Running Backs the Seahawks Can Sign After Chris Carson and CJ Prosise Injuries

The Seattle Seahawks have had a miserable Week 16. Not only did they lose to the Arizona Cardinals 27-13, but their top two running backs coming into the day, Chris Carson and CJ Prosise, suffered season-ending injuries. Carson suffered a hip injury, while Prosise broke his arm. With Rashaad Penny already sidelined with a torn ACL, the only healthy running back on the Seahawks' roster is Travis Homer. Thus, Pete Carroll and management will definitely be looking to sign a running back -- maybe even two -- to help fill the void. Here are three veterans they can take a look at.

Turbin played three years for the Seahawks before being waived in 2015 after suffering an ankle injury. He appeared in both Seahawks' Super Bowl appearances this decade, primarily serving as a backup to Marshawn Lynch. Obviously, Turbin has an advantage over other free agent running backs in that he's already familiar with Pete Carroll's system, which would pay dividends should the Seahawks sign him for the rest of the season.

2. CJ Anderson

Anderson was actually a member of the Denver Broncos when they lost against the Seahawks 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII, and he could contribute significantly towards Seattle's championship aspirations. He was last signed to the Detroit Lions for the first two games of the season but was ultimately released. Having won Super Bowl 50 two years after losing against the Seahawks, Anderson has that championship pedigree that would be well integrated into the Seahawks' locker room.

Oh, a football fan can dream. Yes, the Seahawks need to make a rational decision when they determine who they want to sign, and yes, this may seem far-fetched. Or is it? Lynch has already made one comeback out of retirement, and a playoff run has got to be intriguing to him, especially with the Seahawks. He looks like he still has a lot of juice left, and he could prove to be incredibly useful to the Seahawks. Please, let's make this happen.
