  Lions | Tra Carson lands in IR    Sat Nov 2, 04:22 PM

Detroit Lions RB Tra Carson (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 2.

Footballguys view: The Lions problems at running back continue with Carson now joining Kerryon Johnson on Injured Reserve. Paul Perkins was added to the active roster. Ty Johnson is the lead back for the Lions and has flex appeal in Week 9 against the Raiders.

  Lions | Detroit's Week 9 injury report    Fri Nov 1, 04:14 PM

Detroit Lions DB Tracy Walker (knee) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders. DT Mike Daniels (foot) was limited all week and is listed as doubtful. RB Tra Carson (hamstring), DT Damon Harrison (groin, rest), CB Amani Oruwariye (knee) and DT A'Shawn Robinson (ankle) were limited in practice Friday, Nov. 1, and are listed as questionable. OL Graham Glasgow (back) and CB Darius Slay (hamstring) practiced in full Friday and are also listed as questionable. DL Da'Shawn Hand (non-injury) and QB Matthew Stafford (hip) fully practiced Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Carson isn't a sure thing going into Week 9, which might make Ty Johnson a solid play in a week that it might be tough to find two startable fantasy running backs.

  Lions | Tra Carson listed as limited    Thu Oct 31, 04:44 PM

Detroit Lions RB Tra Carson (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 31.

Footballguys view: Watch this as Carson was the starter last week, but if he's not 100%, Ty Johnson could get the start we expected last week, and in an equally good matchup against the Raiders.

  Lions | Tra Carson leads team in rushing    Sun Oct 27, 05:57 PM

Detroit Lions RB Tra Carson rushed for 34 yards on 12 carries against the New York Giants in Week 8.

Footballguys view: Carson was a trick from Matt Patricia as many were expecting Ty Johnson to be the treat. The back recently claimed from the Packers was the starter instead, but the Lions running game still stalled out. They should be in the market for a back at the trade deadline with a 3-3-1 record, still very much alive.

Footballguys view: We are watching Allen Lazard in super deep dynasty formats. He's a huge target with a large wingspan who could be tasked with being a red-zone target someday.

  Packers | Tra Carson third in the pecking order    Fri Aug 23, 10:03 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Tra Carson is currently ahead of RB Dexter Williams for the No. 3 running back job because he has a better understanding of blitz pickup, according to head coach Matt LaFleur. 'I think just overall knowledge of knowing what to do, especially when it comes to pass protection,' LaFleur said.

  Packers | Tra Carson unable to practice    Sun May 26, 08:20 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Tra Carson (ribs) has been present at OTAs but is unable to practice.

Footballguys view: Rib injuries basically come down to pain tolerance, so this must be too painful for Carson to work through. The Packers have a jam-packed backfield led by Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. Behind those two, guys like Kapri Bibbs, Dexter Williams, Malcolm Johnson and Carson will compete to establish a pecking order.

QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) practiced in full Friday and no longer appears on the injury report.

Footballguys view: It sounds like Cobb is ready to return this week, but he is still a negligible fantasy factor until he proves otherwise.

  Packers | Green Bay promotes Tra Carson     Wed Oct 31, 01:10 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Tra Carson was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad Wednesday, Oct. 31. Free-agent RB Lavon Coleman (Seahawks) was signed to the practice squad to take Carson's place.

Footballguys view: The former Texas A&M runner is a 228 pound power back. There's not a lot of nuance to his game, but he's swift with the ball in his hands. We'll continue to monitor Carson but only in super crazy deep dynasty leagues.

  Bengals | Thomas Rawls signs with Bengals    Wed Sep 19, 11:33 AM

Free-agent RB Thomas Rawls (Jets) signed an undisclosed deal with the Cincinnati Bengals Wednesday, Sept. 19. RB Tra Carson was waived.

Footballguys view: Rawls comes in to give the team veteran depth as a no3 running back while Joe Mixon (knee) misses time. Gio Bernard will start for the Bengals while Mixon is out and rookie Mark Walton should be his primary backup.
