Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) 'should be absolutely fine' for the start of he 2020 season, according to head coach Pete Carroll, but Carroll added that Carson will be brought along slowly. 'We won't overdo it with him,' Carroll said. 'He's had two great back-to-back seasons. We're going to take care of him throughout all the way to game time.'
Huddle Up: Carson has established himself as the lead back for an offense that loves to run the ball. He should at least be a volume-based, high-floor RB2 in 2020.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is expected to be ready for the start of the season, according to head coach Pete Carroll Tuesday, Feb. 25. Carroll added Carson isn't yet able to do much work.
Huddle Up: Carson rushed for a career-high 1,230 yards with seven touchdowns in 15 games before suffering the injury. He'll be a low-end RB1 entering 2020 with RB Rashaad Penny (knee) further behind in his recovery.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson will have his 2020 base salary increase from $735,000 to $2.147 million because of the NFL's proven performance escalator.
Huddle Up: Carson has rushed for at least 1,150 yards in each of the last two seasons and has 16 rushing touchdowns during that span. He likely will not do much during offseason workouts because of his hip injury but is expected to be ready for the 2020 season. He should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues if he is healthy.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) said he hopes to be ready for the start of training camp. He said the broken bone in his hip will heal without surgery and should not be a long-term issue.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor Carson's rehab during the offseason to see if he suffers any setbacks. He finished fifth in the NFL with 1,230 yards and also had seven rushing touchdowns. He will be a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues next season if he is healthy.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) will not need to undergo surgery on his injured hip this offseason, according to head coach Pete Carroll. The team hopes Carson will be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Carson likely will not do much during offseason workouts but appears to be on track for the start of the 2020 season. He finished 2019 with 1,230 yards and seven touchdowns. Carson can be a No. 1 running back in fantasy leagues next season as long as he is healthy.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) is feared to need season-ending surgery on the hip injury he suffered in Week 16 versus the Arizona Cardinals, according to comments made by head coach Pete Carroll.
Huddle Up: C.J. Prosise (arm) is also believed to be done for the year. If it is true that both Carson and Prosise will not return, it means rookie Travis Homer will get the start in Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers and for however long the Seahawks last in the postseason. If this is the end for Carson, he'll conclude 2019 with 1,230 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground to go along with 38 catches for 266 yards and two more scores through the air. Owners should view him as a low-end RB1 in 2020.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) suffered a hip injury during the Week 16 game and is considered questionable to return.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson rushed 24 times for 133 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: With Rashaad Penny out of the picture it's the Chris Carson Show, and he more than looked capable of handling the entire workload. He is in line for a huge fantasy performance in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 15, and the Panthers have allowed an NFL-high 24 rushing touchdowns this season.
Huddle Up: Carolina is also allowing 5.3 yards per carry, the most in the league, and Carson should have the backfield to himself after Rashaad Penny suffered a knee injury in Week 14. At worst, he should be a high-floor RB2 against the Panthers.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson carried the ball 15 times for 76 yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Dec. 8. Carson also caught three passes for 15 yards.
Huddle Up: Despite a middling performance, Carson's value will go skyward following the unfortunate injury to Rashaad Penny, who appeared to suffer a serious knee injury on Sunday night. Assuming Penny misses the remainder of the season, Carson should be a RB1/RB2 the rest of the way as Seattle is in position to play for a division crown in Week 17, assuming they take of business with Carolina and Arizona.
