Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney to undergo...


Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney proved to be an impactful addition to the roster this season, even playing through the pain of a core (sports hernia) injury in Seattle’s push for a playoff run.

After the initial diagnosis, Clowney had decided to wait until the end of the year before undergoing surgery to correct the problem. Now that Seattle’s season is over, Clowney is planning to do just that.

“Yes, he’s had surgery on the other side, and he said he wishes he had done it on both sides,” coach Pete Carroll said during his Monday press conference. “He’s got to get it done in the next few days or whatever. Next week, or something like that. It’s for a core injury.”

Clowney, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent, has expressed interest in re-signing with the Seahawks. His procedure, thankfully, shouldn’t keep him out of the action for long.

“It’s short,” Carroll explained. “Guys can make that back in six, seven weeks. Five, six weeks. It shouldn’t be a lasting recovery at all.”

Seattle has some decisions to make regarding free agents before the start of the new league year and a healthy Clowney could make a new deal all the more likely for the Seahawks.
