Seahawks rookie WR Metcalf set for knee surgery


Seattle Seahawks rookie receiver DK Metcalf needs knee surgery, but coach Pete Carroll expressed optimism that he won’t be sidelined for long.

“DK’s got an injury to his knee that we found after a couple days,” Carroll told reporters Sunday night after the Seahawks’ 25-19 preseason loss to the Vikings in Minneapolis. “It happened a few days back. So there’s something. We’re gonna do some work on it Tuesday and get him back in a hurry. So we’re disappointed for him because he was off to a fantastic start, but I don’t think this is gonna derail him for long. But he does have to have some work done, and we’ll know more about that when we get back into town.”

Carroll said doctors have said a quick recovery from surgery was expected after looking at the results of an MRI, though he did not provide specifics on the nature of the injury.
