The Seahawks have plenty of quality players. And plenty of those quality players have had various body parts surgically repaired.
The latest procedure happened to linebacker Bruce Irvin. Per the Seattle Times, the Seahawks have announced that Irvin underwent hip surgery.
Irvin said on Twitter that he’ll be back for training camp. He practiced last week. It’s unclear whether Irvin suffered the injury last week or whether it was something that was lingering.
Irvin, a first-round pick in 2012, faces a make or break year. We say that because he acknowledged on Twitter that some are indeed saying it’s a make-or-break year for the former Mountaineer who scaled the draft order all the way to No. 15.
There’s an opportunity for Irvin, given some of the hits the team has taken to its impressive rotation of pass rushers. After this year, the question will be whether the Seahawks have seen enough to pick up the fifth-year option on Irvin’s contract, which currently runs through 2015.
