Seahawks rookie RB Chris Carson plays with 1st team vs. Vikings

Seahawks 7th-round pick and Chris Carson rotated with fellow RB Eddie Lacy on the Seahawks' first-team offense. Carson carried six times for 27 yards. He also had a 17-yard catch-and-run on third down. And on special teams, Carson forced a fumble on kickoff coverage. The seventh-round pick out of Oklahoma State has had an impressive summer and looks like a lock to make the roster. The only question now is: How big of a role can he earn between now and the regular season?

Fantasy Impact: 

Meanwhile, Lacy only rushed for 20 yards on his six carries and added a reception for three yards. Thomas Rawls did not play with a minor injury. It was Rawls who had been getting the majority of first-team reps in recent practices. C.J. Prosise also did not play. This certainly appears to downgrade Lacy's fantasy stock. It should also be noted that Seattle's already brutal offensive line from last year also lost starting left tackle George Fant to a torn ACL Friday night.
