Chris Carson, RB (FA)

Could return at training camp

Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that he expects Carson (neck) to be ready for training camp, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Carson played just four games this season before suffering a neck injury, which he attempted to return from before undergoing season-ending surgery in November. Carroll is notoriously optimistic about his player's injuries, and neck injuries tend to be tricky, so we should take his report with a grain of salt. If Carson does return for training camp, he may have to settle for a backup role to Rashaad Penny, who rushed for 671 yards (7.3 YPC) and six touchdowns over the final five games this season. It's worth noting that Carson will be 28 years old in September. The Seahawks would save $3.25 million against the salary cap if they cut him, as well.
