Pete Carroll Provides Injury Updates On Earl Thomas, Will Dissly Following Win at Cardinals

Two Seahawks were carted off the field in Sunday’s 20-17 road win over the Cardinals with serious injuries, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll confirmed postgame in Arizona.

In the fourth quarter, free safety Earl Thomas suffered what Carroll called a lower leg fracture, while rookie tight end Will Dissly went down in the first quarter with what Carroll referred to as a patellar injury.

“Earl was extraordinarily poised on the field for what just occurred,” Carroll said of what followed the injury to Thomas. "To be so clear and so resolved, he knew what happened but he was so poised and giving back to the players and all of us.”

Running back Chris Carson, who was inactive for Sunday’s game because of a hip injury suffered in last week’s win over the Dallas Cowboys, should be ready to go for next week’s home game against the Los Angeles Rams. 

“Just couldn’t quite get right,” Carroll said of Carson, who was listed as questionable and said to be a game-day decision. "Once he felt it in the middle of the week we took it easy on him in hopes that he would be OK on gameday. He was really close, but just not right.

"C.J. had bounced back for us as well,” Carroll added of fellow running back C.J. Prosise, who was listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game with an abdomen injury. “So it just wasn’t the right thing to put (Carson) out there. Next week (Carson) should be OK. We’ll keep our fingers crossed on that.”
