After getting Carlos Hyde back on the field last week, the Seahawks welcomed the return of Chris Carson to the practice field Tuesday as the team’s running back position appears on track to get back to normal for the first time in a month.
Coach Pete Carroll said Carson was able to do “all the regular practice stuff’’ on Tuesday in what was his most significant work since suffering a mid-foot sprain against Arizona on Oct. 25, calling it “a good sign,’’ the story said. Carson has missed the last four games, during which time Seattle gave two starts at tailback to rookie Dallas and one each to Collins and Hyde. With everyone getting healthy, Dallas and Collins take a hit on the depth chart.
SEA RB Alex Collins - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 11 vs Cardinals
In the constant shuffling of backs with Chris Carson injured, it was Alex Collins who took the lead role in Week 10 with 12 touches for 47 yards and a touchdown and seeing the most offensive snaps among him, DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer. But Carlos Hyde could be back Thursday for Seattle and Hyde would almost certainly be the lead back if he is back on Thursday. But until we know for sure, Collins now looks like the best bet among Seattle's running backs.
