darrell jackson possibly out for a month

Postby awwchrist » Fri Oct 07, 2005 7:07 pm

KIRKLAND - The Seattle Seahawks' leading receiver has been advised to undergo knee surgery after a prominent orthopedist detected a torn lateral meniscus in addition to the previously diagnosed bone bruise, sources said Friday.
Jackson received the news Friday from Dr. John Uribe, a Miami-based orthopedist who has operated on numerous professional athletes. Jackson had sought a second opinion from Uribe as a precaution after an initial diagnosis suggested no damage beyond the bruised bone.
Jackson experienced pain and swelling in the knee following a victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 25. It was not immediately known when Jackson suffered the torn meniscus. The lateral meniscus consists of cartilage on the outer side of the knee.
Surgery was tentatively scheduled for Wednesday. If Jackson goes through with the operation, he could need at least four weeks to recover. Jackson played with the injury Sunday and caught seven passes for 55 yards and one touchdown.
Jackson, 26, remained in Florida on Friday and will not travel with the Seahawks to St. Louis for their game against the Rams on Sunday.
The team practiced Friday and planned to depart for St. Louis on Saturday. Jackson ranks third in the NFL with 29 receptions.

ANALYSIS: This is a tough blow for the team in the short term. The timing is somewhat fortunate, however, because the recovery period encompasses the bye week, which is Oct. 30. If Jackson were to undergo the surgery this coming Wednesday, he could conceivably return in time for the Nov. 13 game against the Rams at Qwest Field. Under that scenario, he would miss games against St. Louis (Sunday), Houston (Oct. 16), Dallas (Oct. 23) and Arizona (Nov. 6). I have heard of these injuries taking 4-6 weeks as a general rule. The six-week window would have Jackson also missing games against St. Louis (Nov. 13) and San Francisco (Nov. 20). Under that scenario, which I pose only as a hypothetical, he would return for the Nov. 27 game against the NY Giants.

Ouch...Hasselbeck's values just dropped a bit...but he's still playing St. Louis (although the Seahawks tend to struggle on the road)

Right there with you, glad I made this huge trade. The thing is now my WR's are so good that Djax is on my bench, so I'm not fretting.

Try TO, Holt, and Horn on for size
