Golden Tate expected to miss Seahawks’ opener

The injury to Seahawks receiver Golden Tate’s right knee is serious enough that he’s likely to miss Week One.

Tate, who suffered the injury in the preseason finale, is expected to need at least two weeks to recover, a source told the Seattle Times. The Seahawks haven’t offered any details on Tate’s injury, but Tate didn’t practice on Monday.

While Tate is out, Braylon Edwards will likely take his spot in the Seahawks’ offense.

Last season Tate played in all 16 games and started five. He was third on the team with 35 catches, with 382 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

    Big game for Braylon to prove himself. At least he can run routes and be in the right places at the right times.

    Braylon has good hands, hopefully he can get open to use them.

    I dont think Tate has ever dropped a pass in his career (according to PFF). Too bad hes slow cant run routes and probaly dont know his playbook. Oh and injuries too?

    The problem is he can’t catch, other than that he runs great routes.

    Hardly a bust, he had 0(ZERO) drops all last year.

    this guy really has done NOTHING in the Seattle uniform he has been BLESSED to where except talk twice as much as he as performed.. Im truly hoping Braylon steps up and takes Goldens job! the guy truly is over confident and in my mind doesnt deserve to start!!!

    Seems like the Seahawks WRs are hurt an awful lot.

    He went down on like the next-to-last play of the 4th qtr of the 4th preseason game. Que the tv commentators, “Oh, wow, that’s something you just never want to see…”

    Golden has better than average hands, ok speed, ok size… what makes him special (and always in the mix for PR/KR duties, even with Leon, WA in the house) is his elusiveness after the catch. Breaks an awful lot of tackles for a meh athelete. He’s “explosive”, for lack of a better word.

    All of which is why SEA has never given up on him, even though he’s put up caca for stats/production.
