Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor and defensive end Chris Clemons each underwent surgeries on Thursday.
Chancellor’s surgery was for an undisclosed injury in his lower right leg. Seahawks team doctor Edward Khalfayan performed the surgery.
Chancellor tweeted that he was back home following the surgery on Thursday and posted a picture of his right foot in a walking boot.
Clemons had surgery to repair the torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee suffered in the Seahawks Wild Card round win over the Washington Redskins two weeks ago. Clemons’ surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews.
Surgery was a success today, Thanks for all the support. Dr. Andrews did the B Boy stance after when he walked out like he sacked me.—

The Seahawks confirmed Chancellor’s surgery via their own twitter account Thursday afternoon. The surgery is not considered to be serious. Head coach Pete Carroll said during his season-ending press conference that only the injury to Clemons presented the only serious rehab they expected this off-season.
Carroll said other players would require some smaller procedures but nothing that would significantly impact their off-season availability.
“I mentioned to the team how fortunate we were to get out of the year with really one major rehab in Chris Clemons,” Carroll said. “We’ll have some guys, who need some things cleaned up but that will be much minor and insignificant than what Clem has to go through.”
