Chris Carson calls Trysten Hill's gator-roll a "bull****-ass play"


Chris Carson didn't mince words during Thursday's media availability when asked about Trysten Hill's gator-roll tackle a few weeks ago.

"Kind of like what everybody thought about it, I thought it was kind of a bull****-ass play, but it is what it is.”

I thought it was a bull****-ass play.

Hill tackled Carson on a short run in Seattle's 38-31 victory over the Cowboys in Week 3, but the tackle was anything but normal.

After the initial tackle, Hill held onto Carson's leg and gator-rolled the Seattle running back.

Carson would have to leave the game with a knee injury as a result of the play. 

Hill was not suspended, as many had hoped, but he did get slapped with a $6,522 fine for the play. 

While Carson obviously wasn't a fan of the play, it does appear he and Hill have mended the fence. 

According to NBCSNW Seahawks Insider Joe Fann, Hill reached out to Carson via text to apologize, a gesture Carson says he appreciated.

Yeah, he reached out to me, and you know I read it, and I appreciate him reaching out and apologizing for everything.

"I was nervous of course. That’s one of my injured legs that I had during high school," Carson said when he watched the playback, "So my first initial reaction was something happened again. I felt a sharp pain, but yeah I was relieved once the MRI results came in and said I was good.”

Luckily for the Seahawks, Carson's injury didn't last long.

He returned in time for Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins where he rushed for 80 yards and two touchdowns to help the Seahawks remain undefeated, and he is a full go for Sunday Night Football this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings.
