Seahawks running back Chris Carson was carted off the field Sunday night with what coach Pete Carroll called a “significant” ankle injury. And if you were one of the thousands of fantasy football players with Carson on your team, Richard Sherman isn’t impressed with how you may have reacted.
“I think a lot of people, a lot of fans out there have looked at players even less like people because of fantasy football and things like that,” Sherman said (via The Seattle Times). “You’re not thinking, ‘Hey man, this guy got hurt — he’s really physically hurt and he’s going to take time to recover and it’s probably going to affect his mental state and his physical state and now he has a long, rigorous rehab.’ You’re thinking, ‘Oh, man, he’s messing up my fantasy team.'”
Carson left Sunday night’s 46-18 win over the Colts early after getting his left leg awkwardly bent and twisted. Carson was originally believed to have suffered only an ankle injury.
Carson, a seventh-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State, had separated himself as the lead back in Seattle’s crowded backfield. He amassed 66 total yards Sunday before leaving.
Should Carson miss an extended period of time, Eddie Lacy, who had 52 yards on 11 Cheap Jerseys MLB China carries Sunday, and J.D. McKissic, who scored two touchdowns against the Cheap Jerseys Online China Colts, could share running back duties.
C.J. Prosise and Thomas Rawls, both inactive against the Colts, could also factor into Seattle’s running back committee.
