$Signed a contract with the Packers in October of 2019.
Serves as backup running back
RBGreen Bay Packers
October 7, 2019
Carson had six carries for 14 yards and four receptions for 18 yards in Sunday's victory over the Cowboys.
ANALYSIS
With fellow running back Jamaal Williams (concussion) sidelined in Week 5, the Packers brought up Carson from the practice squad, and he operated as the backup behind top running back Aaron Jones. Carson did not accumulate much yardage, but he did see a fair number of opportunities, handling 10 touches while playing 24 of a possible 74 snaps. Carson does not possess much upside as a fourth-year player who just received his first career touches, but he is firmly ahead of Dexter Williams on the Packers' depth chart, and would serve as the team's No. 2 back again in Week 6 should Jamaal Williams miss another game.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Signed by the Bengals as an undrafted rookie this year, Tra Carson faces an uphill battle to make the roster, let alone make a fantasy impact. His best shot at the team will be as a practice squad member, and, if he somehow manages to make the 53-man roster, special teams will likely be the main reason.
