Patrick Kerney's surgery not as serious as feared

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Defensive end Patrick Kerney underwent surgery on Tuesday in Alabama, and coach MIke Holmgren said it was not the worst-case scenario feared.

"It was the best news we could get," Holmgren said. "It was not major. They had to clean out a few things in there, apparently. The expectation that we will have him back to play this season."

The worry was Kerney had again suffered a torn labrum. He suffered that injury in the playoffs last season. That was not the injury that doctors discovered during the surgery.

Exactly when Kerney will be back is not certain. He remains in Alabama for the time being, but Holmgren said he could return to the team this week.

Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is expected to practice some on Wednesday as scout team quarterback, and Holmgren said the plan is that Hasselbeck could return for the home game against Arizona on Nov. 16.

  • RG Floyd Womack suffered an injury to his foot and won't practice Wednesday, but Holmgren said Womack should be able to play Sunday in Miami. TE Will Heller is not expected to play this week as he continues to recover from a sprained knee. DT Red Bryant is out this week because of a high ankle sprain. LB Lofa Tatupu and FB Leonard Weaver are expected to practice Wednesday. Neither played last week.
