Chris Carson, RB (SEA)

Not practicing, but might Thursday

Carson (neck) isn't practicing Wednesday but is scheduled for a return Thursday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Coach Pete Caroll said Monday that Carson had taken "a big turn" over the weekend, with his sore neck apparently improving a few days after the Seahawks lost QB Russell Wilson to a finger injury in the 26-17 loss to Los Angeles last Thursday. The team may now try to run the ball more, though perhaps with fewer scoring opportunities if backup QB Geno Smith can't keep the ship afloat. Alex Collins got the start and 71 percent snap share last week with Carson out, but DeeJay Dallas and Travis Homer also had small roles, and Carroll even said last Friday that Rashaad Penny (IR - calf) could be back in time for Sunday's game against the Steelers. It isn't clear if Penny still has a shot to play, but Carson apparently does. An 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff will complicate things for fantasy managers if Carson's availability comes down to a game-time decision.
