Phillip Dorsett unlikely to play this season

NFL: AFC Wild Card-Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

One of the main free agent additions the Seahawks made during the offseason is yet to debut. It’s becoming increasingly unlikely that debut ever comes.

Asked about Phillip Dorsett on Wednesday, Pete Carroll expressed doubt around the chances of the wideout making it back to the field this season, barring a deep playoff run.

Dorsett, signed by Seattle in March, has been dealing with a foot injury since training camp. After the team’s mock game at what was then CenturyLink Field, he began to be listed with a sore foot. Though he remained on the team’s 53-man roster to begin the season, he was moved to injured reserve ahead of Week 3. A week after he became eligible to come off of I.R., he underwent foot surgery.

Though last week Carroll had said Dorsett was out of a boot and back working out, it doesn’t appear a debut is any closer for the 27-year-old.

After signing a one-year deal with the Seahawks, he will be a free agent after the season.
