Seahawks Injury Update: Jesse Williams carted off field after suffering knee injury

By on 8/01/2014 03:26:00 PM

 Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Jesse Williams was carted off the practice field with a knee injury on Tuesday, reports The Seattle Times Bob Condotta.

Williams, a fifth-round pick of last year’s draft out of Alabama, missed all of last season after undergoing surgery because of a knee injury.

Seattle's head coach Pete Carroll stated that he didn't know any details of how potentially bad William’s injury could be other than to say that it was a serious situation. Williams has had issues with his knee ever since the following of his last season at Alabama.

Health was a big focal point this off-season for the second-year defensive tackle. Williams dropped around 20 pounds before camp and was in the mix for a depth spot on Seattle's dominant defensive line.

If this truly is a season ending injury that requires Williams to go under the knife, then it will be the third surgery he’s had since finishing his college campaign in 2013. However serious his injury is, it sounds like Williams will be fighting an uphill battle to make back anytime soon

  1. ill worry when they say the big aussies career is over for good as far as im concerned its another red shirt for jesse the kid is a stud and HE WILL bounce back until proven otherwise i love the kid and pray that he gets healthy next year but there are good news to this there have been players at all positions who had knee problems and surgeries early in their career and they still went on to flourish in the league i am very confident jesse will be back next play a full season and not only do all that but i also believe he will be the starter heading into the 2015 season

    GET BETTER JESSE but for now let kevin williams handle this

  2. and lets watch vince wilfork play he will be a indicator whether how well jesse plays and yes i made the comparison because once his career gets off the ground when he finally plays HE WILL BE THE AUSTRALIAN VINCE WILFORK
