LG Luke Joeckel to get knee scoped

  • Luke Joeckel to undergo knee procedure; Seattle injury woes continue

    Seattle Seahawks left guard Luke Joeckel is scheduled to have an arthroscopic procedure on his knee this week and will likely miss the team's next game, according to coach Pete Carroll.
    After their bye this week, the Seahawks play the New York Giants on Oct. 22. Asked if Joeckel has a chance to return for that game, Carroll said Monday: "I think that's going to be hard to count on that. That's probably too much to count on."
    Joeckel has not missed a snap while starting all five of Seattle's games this season, but he's been dealing with lingering effects of the major knee injury he suffered last season. Joeckel tore his ACL, MCL and meniscus last October, cutting short his final season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who made him the No. 2 overall pick in 2013.

    He's going to miss the Giants game but will hopefully be healthy for the the home game against the Texans at the end of the month.

    There's rumors that the Seahawks are linked with a deal with the Texans for their OL or signing Albert off of the street who came in for a visit.

  • Yikes. The hits keep coming.

  • Just one game, against the sinking Giants.. Id be into a deal with the Texans during the Bye..

  • Looks like it's no longer just 1 game:
