The hits just keep coming for the Seattle Seahawks in the injury department this season. Starting running back Chris Carson, who has missed the last three contests with a neck injury, continues to battle with pain.

“It’s uncomfortable, basically,” coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Friday. “He has pretty good motion and flexibility, but it’s uncomfortable for him, the discomfort of what is going on. We have to get rid of that.”

Carson was placed on the injured reserve on Oct. 15 and, as of now, there is no clear timeline for his return.

Carroll was asked what exactly it would take to see the running back on the field and he attempted to explain.

“He has to make a turn here to show us that he’s feeling better and good enough to really go for it,” Carroll said. ‘He hasn’t been able to go out and practice yet. Pretty soon you will be saying is he going to make it back, just like you are asking, and I’m not ready to do that yet. I’m really keeping my fingers crossed for him to get a chance to get back and play.

“He’s working out hard, but he’s not ready to practice football yet.”
