Seahawks’ DK Metcalf needs minor knee surgery
Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver DK Metcalf has dealt with a few injuries during training camp and now has a knee injury that will require surgery.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said after the team’s preseason game Sunday against the Vikings that Metcalf needs surgery. He said that the knee injury occurred a few days ago, but the good news is the team is optimistic that the recovery period will be quick.
Metcalf’s injury happened a few days ago. Carroll said doctors have a clear look on the MRI. Think it’ll be a really quick recovery. No details on type of surgery. I asked if Metcalf has shot for Week 1 — Carroll just repeated they’re very optimistic.

Metcalf, who has also dealt with an oblique injury, was drafted in the second round by Seattle with the No. 64 pick. His predraft stock exploded thanks to some incredible combine measurables. Though his route tree was limited in college at Ole Miss, the Seahawks were raving about him throughout offseason workouts and probably can’t wait to have him back.
