NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Chicago Bears Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

Update: A serious injury was feared when Will Dissly was declared out for the game almost immediately after being carted off, and Pete Carroll confirmed those fears in his post game press conference. Dissly suffered a patellar tendon injury against the Cardinals that will end his season.

A torn patellar tendon is what ended Jimmy Graham’s first season in Seattle. It’s a devastating knee injury, one that took Victor Cruz almost two full years to return from. Dissly’s injury comes early in the season, but the rookie will have a long recovery ahead of him.

Original post:The Seattle Seahawks were delivered an injury blow just minutes into Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.

On a 1st and 10 during their second drive of the game, Russell Wilson hit Will Dissly for a five yard completion. While falling out of bounds, Dissly fell awkwardly on his right leg.

Dissly remained down for a couple minutes before being carted back to Seattle’s locker room. Just minutes later, it was announced Dissly was out for the remainder of the game with a knee injury.

Being declared out so quickly is a bad sign for Dissly’s status moving forward, but there’s a chance it could be less severe than initially feared. We’ll update here as more information is given, likely during Pete Carroll’s post game press conference.
