Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that an MRI confirmed that Seahawks RB Chris Carson’s ligaments are intact and he suffered just a minor knee sprain during Sunday’s game against the Cowboys.

Pelissero adds that Carson has a chance to return as soon as Week 4’s game against the Dolphins.

Cowboys DT Trysten Hill twisted Carson’s leg while making a tackle on Sunday and could be fined, but not suspended, according to Ian Rapoport.

Should Carson miss Week 4’s game, the Seahawks would turn to Carlos Hyde and Travis Homer to handle the bulk of their rushing attack.

Carson, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2017. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $2.46 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $735,000 for the 2020 season. 

Carson is in line to be an unrestricted free agent in 2021. 

In 2020, Carson has appeared in three games for the Seahawks and rushed for 157 yards on 37 carries (4.2 YPC) to go along with 12 receptions for 93 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
