After spending nearly half of the season out with a serious concussion, the Seahawks #1 draft selection from 2021 is poised to make his return.
Dee Eskridge, who suffered the concussion during the Seahawks’ Week 1 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, has suffered from a number of complications from the injury, including issues with his vision.
Carroll said Dee Eskridge has had "visual" issues since his Week 1 concussion. That's what he's worked on during his two visits to a concussion expert in Florida. He's returning tonight. Carroll said reports from that trip are positive, but not known if he'll practice tomorrow.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) October 27, 2021
This is certainly a very scary thing to hear, and hopefully Dee is doing okay now. Carroll insists that there won’t be any long-term complications from the injury, but sometimes it can be hard to tell with this sort of brain trauma. The good news is, the Seahawks have been very cautious in bringing him back, meaning his brain has had more time to heal.
The Seahawks have definitely missed the explosiveness and versatility that Eskridge brings to the offense while he’s been out. He showed flashes of what he could do for the offense in the preseason and in Week 1, and hopefully he will be able to contribute to the team (safely) soon.
