Pete Carroll: DeShawn Shead has possible ACL tear

The offseason has begun for the Seahawks with a serious injury issue.

After Saturday’s loss to the Falcons, coach Pete Carroll said cornerback Deshawn Shead has a possible ACL tear, via multiple reports.

A full-time starter in 2016 for the first time, Shead exited in the third quarter of a game that started very well for Seattle but that quickly fell apart.

Undrafted in 2012, Shead is due to become a restricted free agent in March. The injury puts an obvious damper on the extent to which other teams would be interested in signing him.

    What a time to be injured, sorry for the kid. Full recovery all around.

    At least the injury saved him from similar embarrassment suffered by Sherman today.

    Also injured in the game was Richard Sherman. Sherman suffered a blow to his fragile ego. His recovery time is unknown, therapy will include finger pointing and belittling the press who praised him as ‘so smart, well spoken and a great guy’ up until his play on the field began to suffer, much as it did this evening…

    No contact. Only difference between “turf” and astro-turf is the concrete.

    Bad timing for him, and it also means the Hogs have to look for a CB, probably in the draft as it is unlikely they are willing to spend money on a free agent.
