Seahawks Injury Update: Kam Chancellor mulled ankle surgery

By on 9/23/2014 01:38:00 PM

The Seattle Seahawks' safety, Kam Chancellor, had one of the biggest plays in Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. He caught an interception in the red-zone just before the two minute warning, but this almost did not happen.

Chancellor has been going through a painful ankle injury and was contemplating surgery before the Super Bowl rematch, reports Chris Wesseling from Around the NFL. The Pro Bowl safety was experiencing severe pain after the Week 2 game against the San Diego Chargers.

As reported by Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports, Chancellor had considered undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs after the Denver Broncos game. If the surgery were to happen, it would leave Chancellor out of the Seahawks' starting line-up for six to eight weeks.

Thankfully, the Seahawks' safety's ankle felt good on Sunday, and for know he is holding off on any thoughts of surgery. "Man, it felt great today," Chancellor told Fox Sports. "Last week, it was bothering me. But this week, it felt amazing. We did some different stuff to fix it up and it felt awesome."

The safety will receive rest and treatment moving forward. The loss of a player with the caliber of Chancellor would be devastating to a great Seahawks defense. The team will surely monitor his ankle very closely as to avoid the potential of losing him for six to eight weeks.
