Weeks after seeing their first-round pick, defensive end L.J. Collier, carted off the practice field with an ankle sprain, the Seahawks have been dealt another injury blow – and potentially two – to their 2019 draft class. The Seahawks returned to practice last week, and did so missing their easiest to spot on the practice field number 14, DK Metcalf. Not everyone will be available this week, and that includes the rookie receiver DK Metcalf, who had what Carroll called “a minimal surgery” on his knee last week.
When a coach or GM says minimal what they are typically referring to is minimally invasive, which typically indicates arthroscopic surgery and a very small amount of work done. No formal explanation has been given, but left to speculate it was most likely a meniscus cleanup with a little PRP.
During his presser Carol stated, “It was a minimal surgery, minimal findings, so we have high expectations.” He added, “We’ll go week to week with it and see how he does. We really don’t have any concern that he won’t get back soon. So we’re excited that we got it done. It was the kind of deal we could have put off and waited, but we thought we would use the timeframe we had available and hopefully it’ll work out just right for us.”
