Pete Carroll: Seahawks are still exploring options on Kam Chancellor

Amid reports that safety Kam Chancellor may be out for the year due to a neck injury, coach Pete Carroll pushed back on Saturday against the perception that Chancellor definitely is done.

“We’re still looking at what our options are, and we’ll continue to do that and re-evaluate what’s going on,” Carroll told reporters on Saturday. “We’re working very closely with him on that. That’s it.”

Asked whether the injury could possibly extend even before 2017, Carroll was vague.

“We’ll wait and see, we’ll just wait and see,” Carroll said. “We’re working through it like I said, and we’re hanging together, and just trying to talk our way through it and not have to do anything any faster than we have to. We’ll just wait and see.”

Chancellor is out for Monday night’s game. Beyond that, it could be a week-to-week proposition, with a sense for now that Chancellor could indeed be out every week for the rest of the year.

  1. First and foremost, I’ll say neck injuries are no joke and I hope Kam recovers healthy regardless with or without football.

    Not only Sherm, but Kam too would be a huge blow to the LOB. Luckily Seattle has a sniff of certain players who will excel in their program (see Justin Coleman for example: thanks New England). Nobody is gonna be a Kam or Sherm, but Pete lets each player be himself so we’ll see who is ready next. I recall a pro bowler named Desmond Trufant being replaced by a 5th rounder from Standford named Richard Sherman and it turned out okay, so imho, never doubt a man until he proves you incorrect by his actions/play.

    That guy they sniffed out that will excel in their programs was previously on their team. Wonder why they didn’t sniff him out then? No doubt New England thanks Seattle for trading a draft pick for a guy they were going to cut who the Pats originally signed off the Seahawks practice squad and Coleman probably thanks New England for the SB ring. It’s nice when things work out for everyone.

  3. Never ever ever mess with your neck. Chancellor needs to be very careful with this.

    I’ve known a couple people who had serious neck issues and have never been even vaguely close to the same ever since. And that’s after both had surgery.

  4. Pats fans are sprinkled everywhere like annoying glitter. You put them in the NFC….they don’t even get to the NFC Championship game. BB just had to dump Jimmy because his owner drew the line and said it’s ride and die with ol man Brady. One hit away from being nothing for years…..and you are trash talking about acquiring a late rd pick for a guy who is producing in Seattles nickel packages.

  5. “Legion of Doomed!!! Big contracts to players that are getting older by the day and can’t stay healthy .”

    pretty much everyone on earth getting older by the day.

    Pete was good enough to take your cheatin’ team to the brink in the SB, before being done in by his OC. Be happy you’ve won 5 SB’s by 18 points total, and being gifted 2 of them.

    Naz Jones, 22 years old
    Shaq Griffin, 22 years old
    Frank Clark, 24
    Jarran Reed, 24
    Sheldon Richardson, 26
    Bobby Wagner, 27
    Earl Thomas, 28
    KJ Wright, 28
    Michael Bennett, 32

    Thomas and Wagner are the best players at their positions.

    Thats a better core of talent than 28 or 29 teams in teh League.

    You mad bro? 5 SB’s. If they win a close game, you say they were “gifted” it. Seattle is not even close to the end zone if Kearse doesn’t have a ball fall on his chest while he’s laying on the ground. But kudos to your guys for being gifted a catch to get close enough to lose anyway.

    Of course, that’s why in 2 of the last 3 years the Pats got crushed in the SB by the best team the NFC. Oh wait, never mind, the opposite happened.

    All the good players are at the bottom of this list, and all the young guys at the top are people who’ve never done anything. But as long as Pete is coaching, and trying fake FGs with 7 seconds left in the half, Seattle will never get back to a SB so he can make another bad decision to lose it at the end.
