Injury Rounds

Dallas Goedert | Left high ankle sprain | Week-to-Week | Doubtful Week 4

Goedert suffered a high ankle sprain when pulled down from behind on a first-quarter catch. The full weight of the defender came down on Goedert's leg and foot on the play, a violent mechanism that usually leads to a multiple-week absence. Ian Rapoport tweeted the Eagles expect Goedert to "miss some time" with a Monday MRI scheduled to further evaluate his injury.

If Goedert's injury does require multiple weeks to recover, the Eagles' Week 7 Thursday night matchup may complicate his return timetable.

Chris Carson | Left knee injury | Awaiting Information | Doubtful Week 4

Carson had his knee twisted violent at the end of a tackle and did not return. The Seahawks are calling his injury a sprain. If accurate, the most likely ligament injury is the MCL. It's unlikely Carson has a season-ending ligament sprain. We should learn more after a Monday MRI.

Monday Update: Pete Carroll told reporters Carson has a low-grade sprain and could be back soon. Consider him doubtful this week. If his recovery does not progress well, Seattle may not return him until Week 7 after their bye week.
