Pete Carroll Says Chris Carson Is On His Way Back: “He’s Beating The Time Frames”

Seahawks Chris Carson

A day after the Seahawks appeared to find their tailback for the rest of the season in Mike Davis, coach Pete Carroll said that more reinforcements could be coming soon.
Specifically, Carroll said on his weekly radio show on ESPN 710 Seattle that rookie Chris Carson — who emerged as the starter during the first four games before suffering an ankle injury that required surgery — is “unbelievably ahead of schedule” in his recovery and could be back in as soon as two weeks.

Carroll seemed to hedge on that slightly when he held his regular day-after-game press conference Monday afternoon. Carroll said Carson will not return to practice this week and said that workouts this week will determine how quickly Carson may be able to make it back.

“He’s healed really well,” Carroll said Monday afternoon. “He’s healing. He’s out there changing direction and hitting it pretty hard right now. This is a big week for him to prove that maybe he has a chance in the next couple of weeks. We’re not trying to push him too soon, but he is a really well-conditioned guy and he works really hard at it. This is his natural way, so it’s carried over to really being a great asset in his rehab, and he’s maxed out the process. He’s beating the time frames, so he looks good.” SeattleTimes
