Tre Brown undergoes season-ending knee surgery

USA TODAY Sports

Tre Brown‘s season is over.

The Seahawks rookie cornerback underwent surgery on a patellar tendon Tuesday, the team announced.

“Tre Brown underwent successful surgery to repair his patellar tendon and medial and lateral retinacular tears this morning,” Dr. Ed Khalfayan, the head team physician, said in a statement. “He will remain on crutches for six weeks and his rehabilitation period will be six to seven months. I expect him to make a full recovery.”

Brown, a fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma, injured his knee with 7:37 remaining in the second quarter Sunday. The team listed his return as questionable, but he never did. Brown ended up playing 23 defensive snaps.

Brown appeared in five games with three starts and totaled 10 tackles and a pass breakup.

The Seahawks have Sidney Jones and Bless Austin to help replace Brown, and they hope soon to see the return of D.J. Reed, who had a setback in his rehab as he works his way back from a groin issue.

  1. He was a little undersized going up against lumbering Big 12 receivers at OU but he made up for it with heart. Consistently made great plays. Sack/safety 2018 Texas Championship.
    2019 Baylor Championship Run down. Etc. rootin for ya!

  2. Just another piece of bad news on a dismal season. Look forward to seeing this guy back on the field in 2022. He was one of the few bright spots on the team this season.
