Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor is likely to miss the rest of the season with a neck injury, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.
Chancellor, a four-time Pro Bowler, left the Seahawks' 22-16 win on November 9 with a neck injury on the Cardinals' final possession. He sustained a stinger n the victory, resulting in some nerve issues that don't seem to be improving.
The news comes just one week after Seattle lost Richard Sherman for the year with an Achilles injury, so this is just more bad news for the Seahawks.
"Obviously we are going to miss Sherm". "You can't replace those guys".
Warmer Day — Sunday Morning Weather
Fortunately, winds will be very light and with sunshine we'll get a steady warm-up during the day Sunday for marathon runners. Skies will clear with a cool afternoon as temperatures drop through the day, only reaching near 50 for the afternoon.
And now with Sherman and Chancellor both sidelined with significant injuries, one has to wonder if the Legion of Boom's days as an elite National Football League defense are numbered.
After not practicing on Thursday or Friday, it's unlikely that Chancellor will appear again this season. The 29-year-old also signed a three-year contract extension with Seattle back in August.
The Seahawk's enforcer Kam Chancellor is now expected to be out for the season and leaves the Seahawks very vulnerable in the secondary.
Bradley McDougald, who started the past two games at free safety, is expected to start for Chancellor at strong safety against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night.
