Carroll said the initial concern was about Carson's ankle and initial examinations didn't show a fracture there but additional tests revealed the extent of the injury. Other outlets add that Carson also has a high ankle sprain. Carroll said Carson will be out for a while. Lacy and Rawls should split the workload with Carson out of action for a while.
