The Seattle Seahawks announced Tuesday that right tackle Breno Giacomini underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow.
Giacomini had the surgery Tuesday morning at the Seattle Surgery Center and the procedure was performed by team physician Dr. Edward Khalfayan.
The scheduled recovery time for the surgery is expected to be four to six weeks.
Giacomini played through the injury the last few weeks of the season after first appearing on the Seattle injury report the last week of the regular season. Giacomini started all 16 games for the Seahawks this season at right tackle. He was one of the most penalized players in the league this season having 12 penalties called against him.
Only Stephon Gilmore of the Buffalo Bills (13), Buster Skrine of the Cleveland Browns (13) and Doug Free of the Dallas Cowboys (15) had more penalties called against them. Giacomini did improve in the penalty department as the season went along as he only had five penalties called against him after week six.
