Quinton Dunbar to have season-ending knee surgery plus other Seahawks injury updates
Dunbar, who was due to have knee surgery at the end of the season, and other updates on Seahawks injuries originally appeared on NBC Sports Northwest
Pete Carroll had a number of notable injury updates to post on Wednesday. Here is all the Seahawks staff news you need to know.
CB Quinton Dunbar
Carroll announced that Dunbar will have knee surgery at the end of the season. That news comes just a week after there was hope that Dunbar was ready to return to the lineup. Dunbar ended the season after just six games with 30 tackles, one interception and five passes defended.
It was an overall disappointing campaign for the corner that was in a contract year. Injuries have always been his biggest problem and he didn't do anything in 2020 to prove to teams that he can stay healthy for a season of 16 games. Dunbar will likely now be forced to sign a one-year proof-it deal in the next off-season. That could be in Seattle, but who knows at this point.
DE Darrell Taylor
There's a reason for cautious optimism about the team's second round pick. Carroll announced that Taylor will try to practice next week. Now, of course, we've heard this before, but it's at least a sign that the injection Taylor got into his surgically repaired leg had at least some positive effects.
"We'll see. We've waited and hoped that we can come by today," said Carroll.
It's been a strange saga for Taylor since it was designed. He felt "healthy as a horse" on train day, but has not yet completed his first NFL training. So don't be surprised if this takes another turn next week.
WR Josh Gordon
Pete Carroll said he was "disappointed" to learn that Josh Gordon will remain on the banned list and that the team will "reconsider" things next week. Carroll said he couldn't expand beyond those vague comments, which means it is unclear how severe Gordon's setback was. Carroll added that Gordon was "frustrated" with the news. The team's head coach also confirmed that Gordon will remain on the Seahawks' list for the time being.
TE Greg Olsen
Carroll reiterated that Olsen would train for a second straight week, only this time he should be ready to play the Rams in week 16.
DL Bryan Mone and CB Tre Flowers
Both Mone and Flowers had their practice windows open. You can return on Sunday. Including Olsen, that would mean three possible squad moves on Saturday. Seattle has an open roster seat after Penny Hart was dropped. This place was reserved for Gordon, who of course will no longer occupy it.
G Alex Boone and WR Penny Hart
Both players are now officially part of the team's training team.
