While the Seattle Seahawks are happy to be sitting at 5-1 and in second place in the NFC West following the Week 6 victory over the Cleveland Browns, the team and its fans are certainly not happy to have lost Will Dissly for the season. Dissly, per reports, tore his Achilles tendon during the game, and the fact that the team had yet to move the 2018 fourth round pick to injured reserve had some fans hoping that initial reports were mistaken about the severity of the injury.
However, according to Ian Rapoport, Dissly was scheduled to have surgery on Thursday.
#Seahawks budding star TE Will Dissly will have surgery tomorrow on his torn Achilles, I’m told. Out for this season, as everyone expected, but should be good to go for 2020.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 16, 2019
Thursday morning Dissly himself chimed in on Twitter giving some thoughts on the situation.
I’m going to go ahead and assume that he is using the #Dissly2020 tag to indicate that his 2019 season is over, because as much support as he might garner in running for office next year, at just 23 years of age he’s not quite old enough to be running for even the House of Representatives next year.
Wishing Uncle Will all the best and a speedy recovery. Rehab is no fun, and hopefully he recovers and progresses as well following this surgery as he did following his 2018 surgery to repair a torn patellar tendon.
