Fant (knee) is participating in Monday's practice with a brace on his injured knee, Mike Vorel of the Seattle Times reports.
Fant is reportedly moving well with the brace on his knee, having suffered a torn ACL last August. He's expected to be eased back into action throughout training camp, but he'll ultimately compete for a starting spot on the offensive line barring any setbacks.
Fant (knee) was limited in Thursday's practice session, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Fant suffered a torn ACL last August and is being slowly worked back into the swing of things at camp. Head coach Pete Carroll said he expects Fant to be limited for four or five days prior to returning in full. Fant is competing for a starting role along what was a struggling offensive line in 2017.
Head coach Pete Carroll said Thursday that he expects Fant (knee) to be ready for training camp, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports. "George could probably get out there now if we needed him to, but it's just not worth it to do that,'' Carroll explained.
Fant tore his ACL during the Seahawks' second preseason game last summer. Now over nine months removed from surgery, it's no surprise that he'll be on the field for training camp. When ready, the third-year lineman will compete for the starting job at left tackle.
Fant was placed on Injured Reserve just prior to Week 1 of the 2017 season due to an ACL tear. The injury usually requires about a year to recover from, making training camp a typical pace for his recovery. He'll be looking to catch on as a backup or depth lineman with Seattle in 2018.
