Chris Carson, out the rest of the season
Bad news for Seahawks. After the previous Wednesday it was made public that the RB Chris Carson it wasn’t showing a “positive progress ” in his recovery, this Friday the HC Pete Carroll noted that his star running back is in need of neck surgery, which is why he will return to the Injured Reserve for the second time this year, officially missing the rest of the season.
“He worked as hard as he could, and after just failing to turn [su cuello], this is the best option we have, ”Carroll said through Seattle’s official website. “We hope you take care of yourself and be ready for a great year ahead. He tried like crazy to achieve it, but this is so that he can play next year ”.
Carson, who only participated in the first four games of the season, managed to accumulate 232 yards and 3 TDs on 54 carries. However, the Seahawks placed him on Injured Reserve for a neck injury on October 15, and although he was designated to return to training in early November, he never managed to fully heal so, returning once again to IR, his absence is confirmed for the remainder of the year.
To fill the gap, during the season, Seattle has used running backs Alex Collins, Travis Homer, DeeJay Dallas and Rashaad Penny, the first of whom has seen the most action on the field, registering 381 yards and 2 TDs in 94 carries. Still, the Seahawks’ running game is the 11th worst in the NFL, and they surely want Carson to be 100% recovered by 2022. How will Seattle’s offense overcome this tough loss?

Jared Goff, “unlikely” to play on Thanksgiving
In addition to still not knowing the victory, this Sunday, the Lions, hand in hand with QB2 Tim Boyle, became the first team of the season to reach nine defeats, and the outlook could continue to look more than complicated.
This November 25, Detroit receives Chicago at 11:30 am from Central Mexico to open the Thanksgiving triple card, however, they may not have the QB1 for the second consecutive time Jared Goff. Via Adam Schefter of ESPN, it is “considered unlikely” that Goff will recover from his oblique injury by next Thursday.
The report adds that the Lions have yet to address what would happen if Boyle played well, but that there is a belief around the league that the quarterback situation in the Lions this season could change if required.
Boyle, yesterday, had only one performance where he completed 15 of 23 passes for 77 yards and 2 INT. However, he has just emerged from a broken thumb that deprived him of participation during the first eight weeks of the campaign, so in Detroit it is believed that he still has a wide margin for improvement, in addition, the team “is impressed with his intelligence and attitude ”. Is Jared Goff’s starting quarterback job in the Lions at risk?
