Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson has officially been ruled out for Sunday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Coach Pete Carroll gave an update on Carson’s status following Friday’s walkthrough.

“He made a really good jump over the weekend and felt way better, but coming out of that, starting to go back to work with it, there’s not enough progress made,” Carroll told reporters. “So it’s better for us to get him back and make sure that we don’t rush it back. And so we’re going to just take this time—it is a delicate thing, he’s got something going on in his neck—so we got to make sure that we do it really well.

This week will mark the second straight game Carson will miss due to a neck injury.

“So we’re going to take care of him, it just seems like the right decision,” Carroll added. “The jump that he made was in his relief and he felt way better and all of that, but not ready to play it.”
