Some clarity on Chris Carson's upcoming neck surgery: HC Pete Carroll said his understanding is that Carson has a disc issue that needs to be fused.
The tweet went on to quote Carroll: "That’s a surgery that can get him back somewhere late in the spring. That’s what I’ve heard. So we’ll see what happens with that." We reported earlier today the team was prepared to use a committee in Week 11 instead of a bigger workload for Collins, but Penny injured his hamstring on his first run and the team split reps with Collins and Dallas for the most part. It looks like the Seattle backfield is going to come with risks for the rest of the season in terms of workload. Penny's hamstring injury is said to be minor.
