Dissly (knee) won't suit up for Thursday's preseason game against the Broncos, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Dissly has been turning heads during training camp, his most recent feats a pair of touchdown grabs in red-zone drills at Monday's practice, per John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site. Despite resembling the player that kicked off his career so impressively before sustaining a patella tendon injury Week 4 of last season, coach Pete Carroll won't risk Dissly's health in the team's first exhibition. With Ed Dickson set to miss 4-to-5 weeks due to knee surgery, reps will be available to such reserve tight ends as Nick Vannett, George Fant and potentially Jacob Hollister (groin).
Dissly (kneecap) may play during Thursday's preseason game versus the Broncos, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Reports surrounding Dissly's recovery from a patella tendon injury have been positive through the early days of training camp, and suiting up for preseason action would be another major step in the right direction. If the second-year pro is able to get fully healthy by Week 1, he has the opportunity to serve as Seattle's top pass catching tight end.
Dissly (kneecap) participated in team drills for the first time Monday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Dissly resumed running routes last week, and now takes another step forward in his recovery from a patella tendon injury that limited him to just four games as a rookie. After being held out of OTAs and minicamp, the 2018 fourth-round pick is progressing nicely.
Dissly (kneecap) went through some individual drills Thursday, including running routes, Stacy Jo Rost of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Dissly likely will be eased into practice over the next few weeks, working his way back from the patella tendon injury that ended his rookie season after four games. He has a nice opportunity to serve as Seattle's top pass catcher at tight end, after Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson failed to make an impression last year.
Dissly (kneecap) is on schedule in his recovery and could be a full go a few weeks into training camp, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
This is positive news for a player whose training camp availability was murky at best. Dissly was able to resume running May 1 and seems to be staying on track with his recovery from a torn patellar tendon. Expect the team to give out a much more definitive timetable for the tight end's return once training camp nears. A healthy 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 (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.
Coach Pete Carroll said Dissly (knee) will undergo surgery this week and be sidelined for the rest of the season, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
Once he was diagnosed with a patella tendon injury, Dissly was more or less a candidate to miss the remainder of his rookie campaign. He likely will focus on his recovery effort for approximately the next year, potentially impacting his ability to take the field Week 1 of next season. With just one healthy tight end (Nick Vannett) on the 53-man roster, the Seahawks will almost certainly bolster the position as they await Ed Dickson's (quad, groin) activation from the non-football injury list, which can take place as early as Week 7.
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.
Dissly won't return to Sunday's game in Arizona due to a knee injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
Midway through the first quarter, Dissly required a cart to get to the locker room after injuring his right knee. He'll undergo the requisite tests to hone in on a diagnosis, at which point an absence, if any, will be known. Nick Vannett is left as the sole healthy tight end on the Seahawks' 53-man roster.
Dissly caught just one of three targets for four yards in Sunday's 24-13 win over the Cowboys.
Dissly had been one of the biggest fantasy surprises of 2018, with six receptions for 147 yards and two touchdowns through the first two weeks. He was hardly involved Sunday, although Russell Wilson didn't air it out much, attempting just 26 passes. As long as Doug Baldwin (knee) remains out of the lineup, there will be opportunities for other pass catchers to be more involved, but Dissly might have already peaked. If you're using Dissly in Week 4, he'll face the Cardinals on the road.
Dissly caught three of five targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 24-17 loss to the Bears.
Dissly had a team-long reception of 34 yards, flashing big-play ability for the second straight week to start his career. Furthermore, like his NFL debut, the rookie fourth-rounder again found the end zone Monday. Although that came via a two-yard catch with 14 seconds left and the game's result already decided, Dissly's impact has been felt nonetheless. The local Washington product is one to continue to keep an eye on, particularly while Doug Baldwin's (knee) status remains murky.
Dissly is listed as the Seahawks' first-team tight end on the team's unofficial depth chart for its Week 2 game against the Bears, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
Dissly, a fourth-round rookie out of Washington, was surprisingly active in the passing game in his NFL debut in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Broncos. Despite playing behind starting tight end Nick Vannett, Dissly drew five targets on the day, hauling in three of them for 105 yards and a score. That production allowed the rookie to leapfrog Vannett on the depth chart ahead of Week 2, making Dissly one of the more intriguing options at his position who might still be available on the waiver wire outside of deep formats. Given that Dissly was lauded mainly for his skills as a blocker coming out of college, it's difficult to envision him becoming a consistent week-to-week contributor, but the promise of an enhanced snap count at least makes him worth tracking.
Dissly hauled in three passes for a team-high 105 yards and one touchdown on five targets during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Broncos.
Dissly was the most-targeted tight end, as Nick Vannett was thrown to twice. Originally drafted as a run-blocking asset, the rookie fourth-round pick looked like a natural catching the ball, scoring the game's first touchdown and later adding a 66-yard catch-and-run to set up a Sebastian Janikowski field goal. However, it will be tough for Dissly to approach this kind of production if he continues to split work with Vannett in a timeshare at tight end. The division of snaps and targets will be something to watch in a Monday Night Football matchup with the Bears in Week 2.
Dissly hauled in both of his targets for 19 yards in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.
Dissly also showed glimpses of exceptional run blocking, which is why the Seahawks drafted him in the fourth round. He likely won't be a fantasy contributor this season as the third-string tight end, but Dissly could form into a vital edge-sealer for an untapped backfield.
