Chris Carson's season of inconsistency continues.
The Seahawks announced they don't expect Carson to suit up for their tilt against the Los Angeles Rams today, per Adam Schefter. The second-year running back hasn't practiced all week and is now sitting on the wrong side of questionable.
Seahawks have not made a final decision, and won't until pregame, but as of now, they are not expecting RB Chris Carson (hip) to play today vs. Rams, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 11, 2018
The loss of Carson will be a significant blow against a Rams team that has allowed 105.6 rushing yard per game.
Without Carson, the Seahawks will rely on the tandem of Mike Davi and rookie Rashaad Penny for their work on the ground. Carson has been anything but consistent throughout 2018, but has short spurts of promising games.
Just two weeks ago he had his best game of the season, logging 105 rushing yards and one touchdown against the Detroit Lions. However, he followed that game with a mediocre 40 yards on just eight carries against the Chargers.
The Rams should have a field day on defense without a true RB1 lining up against them.
Carson has been nursing a hip injury all season long. He's been unable to shake the nagging injury and it's seemingly gotten worse over the last few weeks. A much needed rest will aid in getting him back to full health before the Seahawks host the Green Bay Packers in Week 11.
