Pete Carroll ‘Pissed’ Over Tackle that Injured Chris Carson

The Seahawks had a big win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday to go 3-0 on the season.

Unfortunately for them, their RB1 was hurt.

Chris Carson was hurt in the fourth quarter of the Seahawks’ 38-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys when defensive tackle Trysten Hill put a gator-roll tackle on Carson.

He brought down Carson from behind and, with both players on the ground, continued to hold onto the running back’s left leg while rolling over. Hill was not penalized on the play.

“Yeah, I was really pissed about that one,” Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle. “I don’t know what’s going to happen with that, but I was pissed because that guy hurt him, unfortunately.”


Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright also was pissed over Hill’s tackle and called for the NFL to punish him beyond a fine.

In a tweet to the NFL, Wright wrote that “this needs to be addressed ASAP!! Doing dirty dumb malicious s— like this can end someone’s season! This is clearly intentional and getting fined isn’t enough. Im all for guys playing hard but I have zero tolerance for this.”

Safety Quandre Diggs quoted Wright’s tweet and said Hill “should’ve been thrown out!”

Carson may be out one to two weeks, but he could even possibly suit up this weekend:

The Seahawks, 3-0 and atop the NFC West.

Unfortunately players can get hurt on non contact plays too, it’s just part of playing football.
