Seahawks RB Chris Carson (hip) avoided the PUP list to open training camp. The team has been optimistic all offseason about his recovery from last December's fractured hip, but avoiding the PUP list is the 1st tangible sign of progress we've seen. Barring a setback, Carson should open the season as Seattle's clear lead back. He averaged 19.3 carries and 3.3 targets in his 14 full games last year.
