Seahawks tight end Ed Dickson did not participate in Seattle’s scrimmage last Saturday, battling a knee injury.
“We are keeping him off of his knee,” coach Pete Carroll had said at the time. “We did MRI stuff and all that. We are taking a look at it. Break him for a couple of days and see what we’ve got.”
Carroll was unable to provide an update to start the week, but announced Wednesday afternoon Dickson had undergone successful knee surgery.
“He got surgery yesterday on his knee,” Carroll confirmed. “Everything went fine. He’s here today for the first time – so he’s back – I haven’t talked to him here, I talked to him last night. But he feels good and he’s ready to go.
“We are hoping it’s a four to five week deal that we can get him back on.”
Dickson is not the only Seahawks tight end who will sit out Thursday’s game. Carroll also said Will Dissly, who is back to practice in full after tearing his patella tendon last season, will be kept out one more week to be safe.
