McDowell (concussion) is unlikely to resume his playing career, Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports. "It was clear from the moment of injury that it was an extremely long shot he'd ever play again," Robinson noted.
McDowell is reportedly dealing with extensive brain/eye trauma as a result of an ATV accident he was involved in last summer. The Seahawks have been careful to keep his situation under wraps, though it's truly been an extremely disappointing situation for both sides after Seattle drafted him in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. There have been rumors the team is expected to terminate his contract in the near future.
McDowell (concussion) is expected to be released in the near future, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
McDowell still hasn't received medical clearance from the concussion he suffered in an off-the-field incident last summer. While it appears the Seahawks have given up on their 2017 second-round pick, it's possible another team could take a chance on the former Michigan State standout.
McDowell's (concussion) long-term future remains in doubt, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
McDowell, a 2017 second-rounder, spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve after suffering "a really bad concussion" during a mid-July ATV accident. While there haven't been any reports of a setback in his recovery, the Michigan State product remains without a timetable for return.
McDowell (head) allegedly was arrested for disorderly conduct early Sunday morning in Atlanta, Ga., Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
A 2017 second-round pick of the Seahawks, McDowell's rookie campaign ended abruptly when he sustained facial and head injuries in a July ATV accident. On the NFI list as of Week 1, he was officially ruled out for the year by head coach Pete Carroll on Nov. 27. McDowell now has a legal concern hanging over his head, which must be litigated before any sort of punishment is levied by the team or NFL.
McDowell was placed on the Non-Football Injury list prior to the season due to an ATV accident over the summer that resulted in a concussion and other injuries. Head coach Pete Carroll indicated the rookie second-round pick is not remotely close to making a return, and his availability for next year also remains a question mark.
