Chris Carson will be a game-time decision in Week 8

Seahawks running back Chris Carson still has a chance to play according to coach Pete Carroll.

Is DeeJay Dallas the next man up in Seattle’s backfield for week 8?

Friday AM update: Pete Carroll, in a morning radio interview, said that Chris Carson and Carlos Hyde are game-time decisions, per Brandon Gustafson. Carroll also added that Hyde’s injury “might keep him from getting there.” So, it looks like if Carson can’t go, we will likely see DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer, who Carroll said would be back for the game.

Thursday update: The only Seattle back to practice on Thursday was rookie DeeJay Dallas, per Michael-Shawn Dugar. Carson is likely out this week, but Friday’s practice should give us a better idea of who might have a chance to play against the 49ers other than the rookie.

Wednesday update — Carson was held out of Wednesday’s practice but Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer didn’t get any action either. Seattle is being cautious ahead of its Week 8 matchup against the 49ers.

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson suffered a foot injury on Monday night against the Cardinals. A Monday MRI has helped discover that he has a mid-foot sprain that has him week-to-week for a return, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Carson looks like he will miss their Week 8 game against the San Francisco 49ers. On Monday night, Carlos Hyde took over for Carson and rushed 15 times for 68 yards and a touchdown. He ceded passing down work to Travis Homer, who also was dinged up against the Cardinals. Homer suffered a knee contusion, but the extent of the injury is still unknown. If he can’t play next week, rookie DeeJay Dallas would take over the receiving work.

Hyde’s lack of usage as a receiver is a pretty big knock on his fantasy upside, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be a good pickup, especially as we navigate the bye weeks.
