Seahawks RB Chris Carson suffers 'significant' ankle injury, carted off the field

Seattle's Justin Coleman, playing nickel back after Jeremy Lane left in the first quarter due to a hip injury, took his first career interception to the end zone on the Colts' first drive of the second quarter to put the Seahawks up 10-2.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, team doctors believe Carson suffered a broken ankle.

The Seattle Seahawks posted a much-needed win over the Indianapolis Colts Sunday night, but the cost was significant in terms of injuries.

Fantasy Impact Carson, who left Sunday night's Week 4 win over the Colts with an ankle injury, is now in an air cast. The Seahawks have 26 first-half points; the 10 against the Colts was the most this season. Then, on Indy's first play on the ensuing drive, the pass rush got to Brissett and forced a fumble. Carson, a rookie seventh-round pick who was Seattle's starter for the first four games, was carted off the field after going down midway through the fourth quarter when he was tackled for no gain. Almost literally. The first time McKissic touched the ball he went 30 yards on a touchdown run.

Too Many Punches: You had the feeling the Colts could not keep on taking punch after punch on Sunday night.

Mack will be replaced by Matt Jones as the Colts' third-string running back. Carroll says all his signs are stable.

"I just wanted to score a touchdown, " he said.

With one explosive play after another in the second half, the Seahawks quickly blew up all the angst they had built up in their fan base in the first half.

McKissic was filling the passing down back role for the Seahawks in place of the injured C.J. Prosise.

For comparison, Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, Richard Sherman - they entered having played 204 snaps each.

"I think as a competitor there's moments where certain things get you going and also get the team going, as well", Wilson said, sounding more senatorial again.

"We do both got the dreadlocks", McKissic said. "They made a lot of good adjustments - that's a good football team, so hats off to them", Indianapolis cornerback Rashaan Melvin said.

"It kind of snowballed on us and got out of hand", safety Darius Butler said. "We have to learn how to find a way to finish". Eddie Lacy had 11 carries for 52 yards, and Chris Carson had 12 carries for 42 yards before leaving with an ugly injury.
