Seahawks tight end Will Dissly is ‘killing it’...


The Seattle Seahawks lost tight end Will Dissly to a season-ending injury for the second year in a row in 2019, when the former University of Washington product suffered a torn achilles in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

Dissly recovered quicker than expected from the torn patellar tendon in his knee in 2018, and early reports from coach Pete Carroll indicate all is well on the rehab front for Dissly once again.

“He’s killing it,” Carroll said on Monday. “He’s killing the rehab. Will is doing great. He’s spending some time down in LA to get right, and he’s really fired up about the people that he’s working with and the progress he’s making. He’s been around a lot. He’ll get it done. Will will get it done. There’s no question he will. But, it’s a long process, it’s going to be some tough work for him.”

Achilles injuries usually take about a full year to recover from, but Carroll reported shortly after his surgery that it was a minimally invasive procedure, and that he could return sooner than anticipated.

What exactly that means remains unclear, but considering a full recovery probably wouldn’t have him back until midseason, it seems unlikely that Dissly will be healthy before the preseason – and may not make it back in time for the start of the regular season.

Tight end will be a position of need for the Seahawks this offseason, with Luke Willson set to hit free agency and Dissly’s injury concern.

However, Dissly did make it back to full health last year, and Carroll is extremely confident he can do it again.

The blocking tight end proved to be far more than that in the 10 games he’s played over the past two seasons, hauling in 31 receptions for 418 yards and six touchdowns.
