Thursday Practice Report: Chris Carson Returns For Seahawks

As expected, running back Chris Carson (hip) returned to practice on Thursday.


As expected, running back Chris Carson (hip) returned to practice on Thursday at Virginia Mason Athletic Center, working in limited fashion as the Seahawks ready for their Week 5 matchup with the Los Angeles Rams. Carson, who carried 32 times for 102 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's Week 3 win over the Dallas Cowboys, missed this past Sunday's win over the Arizona Cardinals to injury. On Wednesday, head coach Pete Carroll said Carson "should be fine" and Thursday's practice status serves as a positive sign for Carson's availability this Sunday at CenturyLink Field.

Practicing in full for the second day in a row, meanwhile, was defensive Dion Jordan (hip), whose injury also forced him to miss the Seahawks' Week 4 win in Arizona. 

Defensive end Frank Clark (illness) was sidelined for the second consecutive practice, while receiver Doug Baldwin (knee), safety Bradley McDougald (knee), and defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (foot) marked three new additions to Thursday's report for the Seahawks. All three players were limited. 

More details on Seattle's injury situation heading into Week 5 should become available following Friday's practice when Carroll meets the media. In the meantime, here's a look at Thursday's report for both teams:
