Seahawks coach Pete Carroll updates injuries from Sunday
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks won on Sunday 46-18 but lost some key players to injury. Some may be long-term, others not so much. Coach Pete Carroll gave an update on Monday as to how bad the hurts for Seattle are.
Carroll confirmed that Carson has a fracture below his knee. The extent of the severity is unknown and MRI tests are still being run. Carroll also said there is a chance that Carson has a high ankle sprain. These kinds of injuries can be as bad a breaks depending on the severity.
One can assume that Carson will be out for quite some time. This means Eddie Lacy will carry a heavier load. Plus, J.D. McKissic, after being a start last night, will see more reps.
Avril got accidentally kicked in the chin which caused a spinal injury. The injury came on Justin Coleman’s interception of Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett. The extent of his injury, like Carson’s, is also unknown but Carroll did say the Seahawks would be cautious in bringing Avril back.
Odhiambo got hit on one of Russell Wilson’s interceptions in the chest. He went to the hospital after the game and was having trouble breathing. Odhiambo stayed overnight in the hospital and was still there on Monday morning. Carroll said more tests are being run so there is no prognosis of what exactly is wrong with the left tackle at this point.
Carroll did not go into detail but did say Lane was dealing with some type of groin injury.

Moving ahead, likely Carson is out for several weeks if not the rest of the season. Avril and Odhiambo could easily miss Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams. Lane will also be questionable.
