Seahawks running back Chris Carson was carted off the field during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 46-18 win over the Colts with a “significant” ankle injury.
Carson, who had separated himself as the lead back in Seattle’s crowded backfield, had his left leg nearly bent in half by a Colts defender, and then rolled up under, forcing him to leave the game and have his leg placed in an air cast.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN.com), Cleveland matched the worst record over a 31-game span in NFL history when they were defeated Sunday. Only the Houston Oilers (1972-74 and 1982-84) and the Lions (several times, most recently 2007-09 and 2008-10) have shared the same 2-29 mark.
Furthermore, the only coach with a worse record than Jackson through his first 20 games is former Buccaneers coach John McKay, who lost his first 26 games at Tampa Bay in 1976-77.
Still, Jackson says he still feels the support of owner Jimmy Haslam during a massive rebuild.
“Jimmy has been as supportive as anybody I’ve ever been around in this situation, so let me go on the record as saying that,” said Jackson. “I know everybody will be thinking Jimmy’s going to go throw me over in the river. That’s Cheap Jerseys Bing not Cheap Jerseys Authentic the case at all.”
The Browns are scheduled to host the Jets at 1 p.m. ET Sunday before visiting the Texans in Week 6.
