Chris Carson has neck surgery at the end of the season originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Chris Carson’s 2021 season is over.
Returning Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll will undergo season-ending surgery on his neck.
Carson played the first four games of the season, but didn’t practice in the lead up to Seattle’s Week 5 game against Los Angeles Rams due to neck injury. At the time, Carroll revealed Carson’s neck problem was something he have been dealing with long.
Carson did not play against the Rams and was placed on the injured substitute the following week. He was assigned back from IR on November 10, but Carroll said Carson ultimately “unmoved” the injury.
The head coach added that Carson is currently having surgery “so he can play next year.”
Carson, 27, ends 2021 with 60 touchdowns for 261 yards and three touchdowns. He has one more year left on the two-year, $10.4 million deal he signed with the Seahawks last season.
Without Carson, Alex Collins has seen most of the workload in Seattle’s backyard. Carroll said the Seahawks also look forward to being Rashaad Penny’s first choice of 2018 even more. Penny didn’t play at all in Seattle’s loss to the Green Bay Packers last week.
The 3-6 Seahawks team hosts the 8-2 Arizona Cardinals Great Sunday.
