Coach Pete Carroll said Dissly (kneecap) has resumed running, Andy Patton of USA Today reports. "He's making great progress," Carroll said last week, regarding Dissly. "Really everybody is excited that he's going to be OK by the time we open up. At camp, it will be a really interesting time to see how far he's come. He's running, he's working. He looks good." This isn't the first time this offseason that Carroll has had encouraging things to say about Dissly's recovery from a patellar injury. Tentatively expected back for training camp, Dissly's perceived spot atop Seattle's depth chart was strengthened this past weekend after the team decided against selecting a tight end in one of the strongest classes at the position in recent memory. However, the team recently acquired Jacob Hollister from the Patriots, and Dissly will need to recover in full to also hold off Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson for snaps this season.
Coach Pete Carroll said Dissly is making progress in his recovery from a patella tendon injury but won't return to the field until training camp, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Dissly had a promising start to his rookie campaign, scoring a touchdown in both Weeks 1 and 2 and finishing with eight catches (on 14 targets) for 156 yards in four games. In that last contest, he suffered the season-ending injury. Considering Carroll's comments, it appears as if Dissly's rehab will keep him sidelined during the offseason program and potentially impact training camp. While Dissly focuses on righting the ship, health-wise, the Seahawks will rely on Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson at tight end, barring an offseason addition at the position.
Coach Pete Carroll said Dissly (knee) may not be ready for the start of OTAs this spring, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Dissly has been out of commission since Week 4 of last season when he damaged the patella tendon in his right leg. He'll be roughly 10 months removed from the injury by the time training camp opens this summer, which should be enough time for him to get back into shape.
Dissly (kneecap) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Dissly will miss the remainder of the 2018 season due to a patella tendon injury. The rookie will turn his focus toward recovery and will work toward potentially retaking the field Week 1 of next season. Heading into Sunday's game against the Rams, expect Nick Vannett to serve as Seattle's No. 1 tight end option.
Dissly (knee) has been diagnosed with a patella tendon injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. A torn patella is one of the more serious injuries a football player can suffer, sometimes requiring a full year for rehab and recovery. Dissly was carted off the field after injuring his knee during the first quarter of Sunday's 20-17 win over the Cardinals, finishing the afternoon with one catch for five yards. The rookie fourth-round pick had become a surprisingly important piece of Seattle's passing attack, catching seven of 13 targets for 151 yards and two TDs through the first three weeks of the season. His upcoming absence leaves Nick Vannett as the unquestioned No. 1 tight end until at least Week 7, at which point Ed Dickson (quad, groin) will be eligible to return from the non-football injury list.
