After two amazing performances, the Seattle Seahawks will have to get used to life without C.J. Prosise.
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters after Sunday’s game that the Seahawks' rookie running back suffered a “scapula issue” and will miss some time. Carroll said Prosise could return this year “but it will be a while" before he can re-take the field.
The scapula is also known as the shoulder blade, and is the bone that connects the humerus (upper arm bone) with the clavicle (collar bone).
After a stellar performance in last week's win over the New England Patriots, Prosise was once again instrumental in the Seahawks' win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Prosise ripped off a 72-yard touchdown run Sunday before suffering the injury.
Running back Thomas Rawls came in and got 14 carries for 57 yards in the game. Troymaine Pope, just called up from the practice squad last week, also got two carries, but he also left the game with an injury.
The Seahawks even had rookie backup quarterback Trevone Boykin playing running back late in the game.
The Seahawks were hit hard by injuries in this game, but managed to come away with the crucial victory regardless.
