With their season now over, Seattle Seahawks safety Kam
Chancellor and defensive end Chris Clemons underwent surgery yesterday to help
repair injuries sustained during the year, according to Curtis Crabtree of Pro
Chancellor’s surgery was for an undisclosed injury in his
lower right leg. He has been placed in a walking boot, but the procedure itself
is not considered to be serious, according to Crabtree.
Clemons surgery, on the other hand, will require a serious
rehab program, as the Seahawks’ sacks leader underwent a procedure to repair
his torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee. Clemons suffered these injuries
during Seattle’s NFC Wild Card round win over the Washington Redskins.
It’s unclear how long Clemons will remain sidelined, but
there is a good chance his injury will impact his 2013 season. Chancellor’s
surgery was minor and he’s expected to be ready to go for offseason workouts.
