The Seahawks fear that running back Chris Carson suffered a season-ending hip injury Sunday, a massive blow as they head into next week's NFC West showdown with the San Francisco 49ers and then the playoffs.
Carson was injured in the second quarter of a 27-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in which the Seahawks also lost his backup, C.J. Prosise, to a season-ending broken arm.
Homer is now the lone healthy back on the team and is expected to get a feature role going forward. The team will have to make a move for an RB who will likely get snaps as well. Homer is a rookie sixth round pick who had just two carries entering Sunday.

Week 7 vs Baltimore
C.J. Prosise moves into the backup role with Rashaad Penny expected to be out. He had four touches last week, but don't expect much more as the Seahawks have Chris Carson playing as a three-down back.
Prosise is not worth picking up in any leagues as Penny is not expected to be out for a long time.
