  • That is the first time I've heard that report. I wonder how he did it? Makes me all the more glad we have really improved that line in free agency and the draft.

  • Damn, I was hoping he would be a clone of Michael Bennett this year and give us 2 + players who can play 5T on running downs and 3T on passing downs.

  • Looks like it might be true. Clayton and 710 are also reporting it...

    710 ESPN Seattle‏@710ESPNSeattle5m
    RT @BradyHenderson: Source confirms that #Seahawks DE Greg Scruggs recently tore his ACL, as @ClaytonESPN reported earlier. No surgery yet.

  • Yeah I saw that too. Definitely no mention of it on his twitter. Bummed out, hopefully he recovers alright.

    (Also I'm holding out there was some confusion and his knee is perfectly fine)

  • I was also excited to see his improvement from year 1 to year 2. He'll probably spend the year on IR and get a shot next year, with Bennett a FA next year.

  • Had his surgery today apparently:

    Per the #Seahawks, Greg Scruggs underwent arthroscopic right knee reconstruction on his ACL today at Seattle Surgery Center.

  • Saw where the injury occurred prior to the draft. Could explain why they went DT in the first few picks and brought in 2 more guys after losing Jones and Branch. Saw a note that says the team has 8 DTs of the 90 players on the roster right now.

    EDIT: On the good side, maybe this will prevent some of the optimists from posting about how injury-free the team is?

  • This is actually significant. He's got more athletic ability than the vast majority of DL his size and actually was smart enough to absorb enough of the defense to get on the field. He looked to be a bigger contributor this year.

    We'll be fine, but Scruggs is a good ball player. He'll be missed.

  • Man, that is absolutely no bueno. I had some high hopes for Greg this season. Scruggs lives in the same condo complex as some friends of mine in Issaquah, so I've seen and talked to him a few times recently. He was looking big, and sounded ready to make some things happen this year. Also the dude could not be a nicer, more genuine individual. I'm raising my glass to speedy recovery :thirishdrinkers:

  • It's a damn good thing we signed Tony McDaniel. Otherwise, we'd be looking real light in terms of a 5Tech/DT backup who can swing inside and outside and play well in both spots. An underrated move from earlier in the offseason, one of the least talked about moves the team has made this offseason, in one of it's best in team history. And yet it'll prove to be a key move when it's all said and done.

    Winfield, Harvin, Bennett, and Avril might get most of the pub when it comes to offseason acquisitions for the Hawks this year, but don't be surprised if Tony McDaniel is Anthony Hargrove 2.0 and quietly has a solid season for the Hawks.

  • This sucks. I am not yet ready for the "were gonna be fine" mindset. I keep thinking about how much he looked like Michael Bennett in his rookie year last year. I hope he makes it back and we don't make the same mistake with him that we made with Bennette. The problem is, we are stacked at DL and will have to let some good players go. I know it is a good problem to have but some of them, especially the youth movement, could potentiallly turn into valuable contributors to other teams. Not good.

  • I think it's fair to say that we drafted a pass-rushing DT with our 3rd round pick because Scruggs tore his ACL. Hill, although a good player, was by no stretch the BPA on JS's draft board.

    I agree. How many times now has .net given a collective "wtf" at any particular draft choice only top realize,a year later that we were all wrong.

  • On the bright side, if he has one of those ultra fast ACL recoveries some players have had lately it's conceivable that he could be back by the playoffs. If Seattle plays games with their PUP list and roster activation they could keep him off the roster for the first 11 weeks before having to eat a roster spot.

    Even if he misses the whole season, he'll be a year and a half from the injury at the start of the 2014 season.

  • The team was able to cope with the Moffitt/Carp injuries at the beginning of last season and still had a great year en route to an 11-5 record and a playoff birth. I'm sure we'll hardly even notice Scruggs is gone because someone else will step up and shoulder the load of his expected production.

    If anything, this gives Seattle a way of stashing another young, talented player either on the IR or PUP this year and like kearly says, he'll be a year and a half from the injury by 2014 in a worst case scenario.

    Sucks for Greg though, I know he was ready to break out big time but he'll have to wait and rehab now.

  • I like Scruggs and was exited to see him play and improve, but lets not forget, after our FA signings and draft, he was in a dog fight to just make the team. I worry that this injury will put him in the Dexter Davis school of hard knocks as an overachieving seventh rounder whose injuries reduced him to a forgotten man. It's tough for guys like him to resurface after missing 9-12 months.

  • Turns out he was injured from stumbling then landing wrong during a bag drill. Very dissappointing after hearing he was working out hard and had increased his weight to 300 lbs. He's the most athletic DT we have, so I was excited to see howthe extra power and weight would add to his play.
