Injury update: Seahawks TE Ed Dickson may need surgery

On Saturday the Seattle Seahawks held their annual mock scrimmage, and just hours before the scrimmage started, the team waived two tight ends with injury designations and signed two others. However, that hasn’t stopped the injuries from piling up at the position, with both Jacob Hollister and Ed Dickson not suiting up for practice on Monday.

Hollister, of course, battled injuries during his time with the New England Patriots, and Dickson started the 2018 season off on PUP before coming back mid-year and making an impact. Now, according to Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll, Dickson could once again be looking at missing the early part of the season.

With the Seahawks first regular season game of the 2019 season set to be played five weeks from yesterday, that means that he would very likely miss the opener, and potentially more. Add in however much extra time it takes for the team’s medical staff to make a final determination on whether or not he will have the surgery, whether that’s a day or a week, and it’s possible Dickson could miss several games early in the year.

In any case, it’s just another injury to monitor through the preseason, as the Hawks prepare to take on the Denver Broncos on Thursday night.
