Lockett (leg) expects to be healthy by the start of training camp, Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com reports. Entering his second season on the heels of 664 yards and six touchdowns as a rookie, Lockett suffered a left knee sprain in Week 2 and didn't receive more than five targets in any of the next five games. He turned it around in Week 10 with a three-catch, 72-yard performance at New England, after which he hauled in 20 of 32 passes for 311 yards and one touchdown through Week 16. In the latter outing, though, Lockett sustained a compound fracture of the fibula and tibia in his right leg, setting him on his current path of rehab and recovery. The wideout is "itching to get going sooner" than training camp, but he's also aware that the Seahawks' medical professionals have his best interests in mind. As a result, the team will be without Lockett until at least late July.
Head coach Pete Carroll suggested Lockett (leg) could be ready for the start of training camp, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports. Lockett remains ahead of schedule in his recovery from a fractured left fibula suffered in Week 16. He underwent surgery in late January with the expectation he'd miss OTAs and possibly some of training camp, but not the start of the regular season. A return for the start of camp would provide Lockett with plenty of time to make up any lost ground in the battle for Seattle's No. 2 wide receiver job. Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson also figure to compete for the role.
Lockett (leg) is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery and should be ready to go for Week 1, ESPN's Mike Clay reports. There's been plenty of optimism that Lockett, who's on the mend from a compound fracture to his left fibula suffered in late January, will be ready to go for the start of the 2017 campaign, and this report only reinforces that notion. However, there doesn't seem to be any certainty in regard to his return date. Seattle enters the offseason program with the starting job opposite Doug Baldwin "wide open," according to ESPN's Sheil Kapadia, but Lockett likely won't even have a shot if he's out of commission most of the summer. Thus, the third-year wideout has plenty of incentive to return to the field as quick as possible in order to join Paul Richardson, Jermaine Kearse and potentially a draft pick or two for what could evolve into a heated competition for the No. 2 wide receiver spot.
Lockett (leg) is confident he'll be ready for Week 1 of the 2017 season, saying, "Oh yeah, for sure I will," when asked about that possibility, Gee Scott of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Lockett suffered a gruesome compound fracture of his left fibula and tibia during Week 16 of the regular season, sidelining him for the remainder of the campaign and requiring surgery heading into this offseason. Since his operation, Lockett has been working hard in his rehab, which caused coach Pete Carroll to project last month that the wideout would be healthy for the start of next season. Although he's still unable to run, Lockett recently confirmed Carroll's expectation, which is certainly an encouraging development regarding his fantasy stock.
Lockett (leg) is expected to be ready for the start of next season, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Lockett suffered a compound fracture of the fibula and tibia in his right leg in Week 16, resulting in a surgery that saw a rod inserted in his leg. Although Lockett fortunately avoided any ligament damage, he likely won't be able to run for months. Nonetheless, coach Pete Carroll said Lockett should be good to go for the beginning of the 2017 campaign, which would certainly benefit his fantasy stock.
