Seahawks upbeat over Metcalf despite receiver requiring knee surgery

August 19th, 2019

The Seattle Seahawks have announced D.K. Metcalf requires knee surgery, though head coach Pete Carroll is confident the setback will not "derail" the wide receiver for too long. Selected in the second round of the 2019 draft, Metcalf was with the team for Sunday's preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings but did not play. Carroll confirmed afterwards that the former Ole Miss standout will have an operation when the Seahawks return home, possibly as early as Tuesday.
