Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly had a phenomenal first five weeks of the season, leading the team in touchdown receptions and looking like the replacement for Zach Miller the team has been searching for for several seasons. However, Dissly suffered a non-contact injury against the Cleveland Browns in the second quarter of the team’s Week 6 game, and the news is not good.

Obviously, anytime an injury involves the Achilles, the fear is that this season could be over, so obviously we’ll have to wait and see the actual details on the injury. That said, the initial reports certainly appear to indicate that Dissly is likely to be out for an extended time.

It’s a shame for a player who had worked so hard to return from the devastating patellar tendon tear he suffered in Week 6 last season. We’ll continue to hope for the best for Will, but as of now, things certainly don’t look good.
