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.
Rapoport went on to say the MRI confirmed the news for the former first-round pick, who also has additional damage to his knee. He’s out until training camp. Tough injury for a player who was starting to come on and steal snaps from Carson. Carson should go back to getting a bulk of the work with Prosise mixing in.
