Seahawks’ Tyler Lockett Done For Season

No surprise here, but Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett is done for the season. He has a broken leg and will need surgery to repair it, as Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweetsTyler Lockett (vertical)

In the second quarter of today’s game against the Cardinals, Lockett caught a 28-yard-pass in the end zone and as he was tackled, the break in his leg was immediately apparent. It was one of the more gruesome-looking injuries we’ve seen in a while and we can only hope the damage was not quite as bad as it looked.

Lockett, 24, earned a Pro Bowl nod and a First-Team All-Pro selection in his rookie year thanks in large part to his contributions in the return game. This year, he had roughly the same number of targets as last year, but had only 39 catches and 559 yards receiving versus the 51 catches and 664 yards. As a returner, he averaged 8.7 yards per attempt on punts and a strong 26.3 yards per attempt on kickoffs.

At 9-5-1, the Seahawks have clinched the NFC West. They’ll be in the postseason, but they won’t have Lockett on the field.

    LOL @ RIP…broken bones are the easiest things to come back from in term of serious injuries in sports. Torn ligaments can be career changers, not broken bones. Just ask Paul Richardson….
