Seahawks fear a torn ACL for top pass rusher Chris Clemons

Chris Clemons, an elite pass rusher and key member of the Seattle defense, likely tore his ACL Sunday, according to a source with knowledge of the situation and the team fears as much.

Clemons caught his foot in the shoddy field at FedEx Field and will undergo an MRI Monday morning back in Seattle to determine the severity but the team is not planning on having him for the duration of the postseason.

He has the telltale signs of an ACL tear -- looseness in the joint and swelling, with no pain. Seattle plays at Atlanta next week.
