Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson was carted off of the field on Sunday Night Football against the Indianapolis Colts. The injury happened in the fourth quarter.

He suffered a left leg injury and it appears that his leg bent backwards after being tackled by the Colts defense. His leg was placed in an air cast by Seahawks trainers and he was then carted off of the field.

This potentially looks like a season-ending injury. Carson, a rookie, was the Seahawks featured back, beating out Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy.

Now, without Carson, likely for the season, Rawls and Lacy will share the responsibility moving forward. In three games, Carson had 37 carries for a 166 yards. He also had four receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown.

Carson took over the Seahawks running back job on Sept. 17 when he had 20 carries for 93 yards. He also had a reception for seven yards in the win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2.

Prior to his injury, he had 12 carries for 42 yards. He also had three receptions for 24 yards.

His best game of his young career was against the 49ers.
