Report: Kam Chancellor to undergo “minor” hip surgery


One of the Seahawks’ secondary stars is reportedly expected to undergo surgery to fix a lingering injury.

Strong safety Kam Chancellor, who had a key interception in Seattle’s Super Bowl XLVIII win vs. Denver, will have a “minor” surgical procedure on his hip, ESPN’s John Clayton reported on Tuesday.

Clayton reports the surgery is “not as severe” as the procedure wide receiver Percy Harvin underwent last offseason. Harvin appeared in just one regular season game in 2013 because of his hip injury.

According to Clayton, Chancellor’s hip injury dates to “last year.”

A two-time Pro Bowler, Chancellor was listed on the club’s injury report with a hip ailment in Weeks 11 and 14 of the 2013 regular season, and he also appeared on the report before the divisional-round matchup vs. New Orleans. However, he did not miss a game all season, and he has sat out just one game in four NFL campaigns with Seattle.

The 25-year-old Chancellor had a strong postseason for Seattle, notching 35 tackles, defending six passes and hauling in a pair of interceptions in three playoff games.

UPDATE 10:20 p.m. ET: Chancellor tweeted Tuesday that he’s not having surgery and declared he’s “ready to win.”

    Still smarting from the “stiffness in the hips” scouting reports, Kam opted to have all the tendons removed.

    He stinks. Matt Elam is better then him #joke

    PED related injury obviously. Would never happen to a classy player with a classy franchise like the Vikings! SKOL

    Hip injuries hurt like hell, I know. Tough dude.

    The shehawks are already beginning to fall apart.losing players like Clemons and Thurmond and Tate,now the injuries are kicking in.the shehawks will return to the pathetic doormat they have always been.SKOL

    Well, IF the Seahawks did happen to have a bad season, they would still have a Lombardi trophy… something the Vikings have not and never will see.

  8. chawk12thman says: Mar 25, 2014 8:03 PM

    Hopefully, minor is all it really is……He would be a major loss if he couldn’t play this coming season. Stud…..

    Go Hawks!

    Chancellor was probably the best defensive player in the entire postseason. He was absolutely insane out there. Kam plays like what a best case scenario of Taylor Mays was supposed to look like.

  10. drock36 says: Mar 25, 2014 8:05 PM

    Kam is the definition of an NFL stud! Doesn’t complain, make excuses and always plays through injuries.

    The best strong safety in the game.

    The Seahawks are lucky to have him.

  11. seatownballers says: Mar 25, 2014 8:05 PM

    Good thing we traded for Harvin vikesarebest.

    Vikings in 2012 with Harvin= 10-6

    Vikings in 2013 without Harvin=5-10-1

    Let that settle in for 5 more years without a ring

    There’s no such thing as a “minor” hip injury.

    Too bad Elam hasn’t even been to the playoffs, probowl and

  14. canadiannflfan says: Mar 25, 2014 8:14 PM

    I wonder why he left this so long. Wouldn’t it have made more sense to have the surgery in mid-February, say, so as to have more time to recover?

  15. 12thlegion says: Mar 25, 2014 8:20 PM

    Pretty sure he’s getting bionics installed.

  16. sumkat says: Mar 25, 2014 8:33 PM

    Minor hip surgery?

    I didn’t know such a thing existed

  17. hawkstradamus says: Mar 25, 2014 8:40 PM

    They had to surgically remove Vernon Davis from Kam’s cleats.

  18. mediasloppy says: Mar 25, 2014 9:03 PM

    What the heck. Sounds like a curse. Sydney Rice, Harvin and now Chancellor.

  19. kev86 says: Mar 25, 2014 9:13 PM

    Big loss for the champs. It is tough to repeat in this league.

  20. threefeetaway says: Mar 25, 2014 9:19 PM

    Per Kam’s twitter account he isn’t having any surgery…someone have a better source then Kam himself?

  21. hawksfan99 says: Mar 25, 2014 9:19 PM

    He isn’t getting surgery…Look at his

  22. raiderapologist says: Mar 25, 2014 9:21 PM

    Bo Jackson had a minor hip injury once. It never healed.

  23. kkalama1 says: Mar 25, 2014 9:30 PM

    Kam would absolutely destroy anybody on the vikings team. I dont blame Jared for wanting to get out of there

  24. themackstrong says: Mar 25, 2014 9:41 PM

    Kam tweeted out just a moment ago “This is all news to him”

  25. braceyourselffor12 says: Mar 25, 2014 9:41 PM

    It’s all about gettin’ them roids!

  26. sterlingrodgers says: Mar 25, 2014 9:42 PM

    I seldom come away with a favorable impression of the intellectual capacities of those who write “skol” at the end of their comments.

  27. kuya206 says: Mar 25, 2014 9:44 PM

    There’s no hip surgery. Kam tweeted out a pic today and was like “Huh?”

  28. everydayimrusselin says: Mar 25, 2014 9:50 PM

    Kam just tweeted that he doesn’t know anything about him having surgery. Sorry folks.

    And why don’t you go ask Demaryius Thomas how hard Kam hits. I’m sure he remembers Denver’s first offensive play in the SB (that didn’t include the ball flying over Peyton’s head)!

    Money makers!


    We’re the money makers!

  30. dontbugmeonsundays says: Mar 25, 2014 10:03 PM

    Peyton heard this and smirked

  31. 509seahawks says: Mar 25, 2014 10:05 PM

    Ham kam chancellor. Favorite player in the league hands down

  32. thestratagicexpert says: Mar 25, 2014 10:14 PM

    If it’s minor surgery then the Seahawks will be fine, if it’s not minor then they will need to think about picking up a safety either in free agency or through the draft.

  33. God Waves His Terrible Towelâ„¢ says: Mar 25, 2014 10:15 PM

    Super Bowl hangover. It’s inevitable.

  34. denver1983 says: Mar 25, 2014 10:37 PM

    Most overrated defensive player in NFL history!

  35. sweetnlow44 says: Mar 25, 2014 11:01 PM

    I’ve re-watched the Super Bowl multiple times (I’m a Seahawk fan, this is ok, despite what my wife says) and every time I watch it, the biggest thing that jumps out to me is that Kam was robbed of Super Bowl MVP honors. He was the best player on the field and was absolutely amazing on the biggest stage. Dude’s a baller.

  36. imbetteratlifethanyou says: Mar 25, 2014 11:25 PM

    the term/phrase SKOL has to be the most retarded thing in the history of sports. and that’s an insult to retards.

  37. wenhawk says: Mar 25, 2014 11:55 PM

    Kam is a unique player, I hope he is 100% next season. He is great to watch.

    Steroid use tends to cause osteoarthritic changes in bones.

    Niners will win the division next year.

    Write that down.

  40. thedanceface says: Mar 26, 2014 12:52 AM

    key interception?

  41. says: Mar 26, 2014 1:01 AM

    He was dominant in the playoffs last year, wonder if this will affect him later on in this up in coming season.

  42. seadawgs72 says: Mar 26, 2014 1:22 AM

    If chancellor is lucky enough to have a lengthy career he will be mentioned in the same sentence as Lott, Atwater, Easley, & others that I’m too mentally challenged to think of right now. The bonus to that statement is Earl Thomas is even better. Do any other Hawk fans feel a little ostentatious for having such an embarrassment of riches? Nah, me either.

    Go Hawks!!!

  43. bartpkelly says: Mar 26, 2014 2:49 AM

    Why now and not at the end of February?

  44. fballguy says: Mar 26, 2014 8:01 AM

    Weak hips there in Seattle. Don’t they have a PED for that?
