RENTON Earl Thomas III Color Rush Jersey , Wash. (AP) — It’s become clear through the first half of this season the Seattle Seahawks offense functions best when running back Chris Carson is getting the bulk of the carries.Yet it’s also becoming clear that Carson may be a spectator on Sunday when the Seahawks face the Los Angeles Rams as he deals with a hip injury that could keep him sidelined for the second time this season.Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Carson would not practice and his status for Sunday’s NFC West matchup was uncertain. Carson started last Sunday’s 25-17 loss to the Chargers and averaged 5.0 yards per carry, but did not play the final 2½ quarters after a lingering hip issue flared up.While there is a chance Carson could be ready by Sunday, the Seahawks (4-4) also turn around and play a Thursday night game against Green Bay next week. And playing Carson on Sunday may make him unavailable against the Packers, which could end up being a more important game for Seattle’s playoff hopes.“The soft tissue thing is kind of hanging with him a little bit,” Carroll said of Carson. “This hip thing is still kind of there and we’ve got to wait and see how it comes out at the end of the week.”Carson has shown he’s the best option as Seattle’s primary running back when he is healthy. In the four games Carson has carried the ball at least 14 times this season, he’s averaging 4.2 yards per carry, 95.5 yards per game and the Seahawks are 3-1 in those four games.In the three games where Carson has carried the ball fewer than 14 times either because of injury or game plan, the Seahawks are winless.If Carson can’t play against the Rams, Mike Davis would likely get the bulk of the work at running back with a bigger role for rookie first-round pick Rashaad Penny as well.“We’ve got plenty of guys we can go to,” Carroll said. “We don’t have to just rely on one guy right now.”Davis has shown an ability to be the primary ball carrier for the Seahawks, running for 101 yards on 21 carries in Seattle’s Week 4 victory over Arizona when Carson was out because of an unrelated groin injury. Davis had 62 yards on 15 carries last week carrying the bulk of the running after Carson was unable to continue.“It’s like I do every week, prepare that I’m going to be the starter so if it does come up I don’t get blindsided,” Davis said.Davis has proven he can handle the load. The same can’t be said of Penny, who has just 42 carries for 146 yards through eight games. In the first couple of weeks, Seattle made it a priority to force Penny into the game and get him some action. After they realized that wasn’t working, Penny disappeared for a couple of weeks before slowly being reintegrated to the offense.Last week Penny had just four carries, but may see that number increase significantly if Carson can’t play.“We’ve just got to get him out there. He just needs more turns,” Carroll said of Penny. “Mike has been very versatile in the throwing game and all the styles of runs, really good at it and very effective. We’re just going with what looks right. It has nothing to do with where you got picked or where you came from for the opportunities to present itself for the guys to show what they can do.”Whoever is carrying the ball, the Seahawks will want to replicate the success they had from the first meeting with the Rams. Seattle rushed for a season-high 190 yards in the 33-31 loss, the most allowed by Los Angeles this season. But Carson was a big part of that success, running for 116 yards.Davis expects the Rams to make changes, but also believes in his offensive line.“We know what our guys can do up front and they’re killing it. I have no doubt Chris Carson Color Rush Jersey ,” Davis said.NOTES: G D.J. Fluker didn’t finish last week’s game with a calf injury and sat out practice on Wednesday. Carroll said Fluker was a little more sore on Wednesday than he was earlier in the week. … S Bradley McDougald also didn’t practice with a knee injury that kept him out the second half against the Chargers. Delano Hill would start if McDougald can’t play. With only the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl left before the 2018 NFL season comes to a close, fans of the Seattle Seahawks have long since turned their attention to the upcoming frenzies of free agency and the draft. Obviously there are a lot of internal matters which the team could address in the coming weeks, including potentially retaining their own free agents such as Frank Clark (gonna do it), Justin Coleman (highly probable) and Earl Thomas (not happening), but in the meantime we get to speculate wildly about how a bunch of college kids who have never played a snap in the NFL are going to come in and contribute in a major way in 2019. To that end, Field Gulls film breakdown master Matty F. Brown is in Mobile for the Senior Bowl this week taking an early gander at some of the players who could have their names called by the Seahawks in Nashville in April. However, in the meantime we get to speculate wildly while we wait for the underwear Olympics in Indianapolis at the end of February. As we wait, we are left to fill our time watching highlights and gobbling up the bits of news that dribble out here and there. On that note, yesterday the following clip of multiple receivers at Kansas State University was posted to Twitter, and it of course includes the Hawks 2018 breakout star, Tyler Lockett. However, Tyler isn’t the only Lockett in the tape, as it also includes some highlights of both his uncle, Aaron Lockett, and his dad, Kevin Lockett. It also includes multiple other players who have found some level of success in the NFL, including names such as Jordy Nelson, Brandon Banks and Quincy Morgan. However, in watching the string of highlights and the names that come through, one thing that jumps out is how many of these Wildcat receivers have ties to Hawks GM John Schneider. Schneider, of course, was involved in the selection of the aforementioned Tyler Lockett in 2015 by the Seahawks, but Tyler wasn’t the first receiver Schneider tried to bring to Seattle from K-State. Two years prior to selecting Lockett in the third round George Fant Color Rush Jersey , Schneider had used a fourth round pick to draft Chris Harper. Harper never caught on at any of his stops with various NFL teams, but it grabbed my attention and forced me to watch the clip all the way to the finish. In the video, there are 13 different receivers shown, and John Schneider was involved with the drafting of four of them. In reverse order of the selections, the following are the ones in which Schneider was involved:Tyler Lockett, 2015, Seattle Seahawks (3.69 - 2015)Chris Harper, 2013, Seattle Seahawks (4.123 - 2013)Jordy Nelson, 2008, Green Bay Packers (2.36 - 2008)Kevin Lockett, 1997, Kansas City Chiefs (2.47 - 1997)That is certainly interesting, but what is even more remarkable is that many of the receivers shown in the video went undrafted. The names that were not drafted are the following: Byron PringleCurry SextonTramaine ThompsonBrandon BanksJames TerryThat leaves just four other receivers in the video who were drafted, and those were: Taco Wallace - Seattle Seahawks (7.224 - 2003)Aaron Lockett - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7.254 - 2002)Quincy Morgan - Cleveland Browns (2.33 - 2001)Darnell McDonald - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7.240 - 1999)That puts it in a situation where ten separate wide receivers out of Kansas State have been drafted in the past twenty five years, and John Schneider has been involving in the drafting of four of them. Now, there aren’t slated to be any receivers from K-State in the draft this spring, but it’s certainly an interesting tidbit to store away in the back of the big brain on Brad, and gives us something else to think about as we whittle away the months until training camp opens in July. (Which should be in twenty weeks and one day, in case you were wondering.)
