Seahawks believe Dissly suffered torn Achilles

The Seattle Seahawks believe they have lost starting tight end Will Dissly for the rest of the season. The team believes he suffered a torn Achilles tendon injury on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

Dissly will undergo an MRI on Monday that will likely confirm the worst. Once the team gets the results that they believe they will get from the tests, the offense will be without a key offensive weapon.

He went down without even being touched by the Browns defense. This is the second straight year the Dissley has suffered an injury that caused him to miss a long time.

As a rookie in 2018, he suffered a torn right patellar tendon. He has suffered now potentially career-ending injuries in both legs.

Without Dissly, the team is expected to move forward with Luke Willson as the primary catching tight end. Willson was recently re-signed with the team.

In five games, including five starts, he had 23 receptions for 262 yards. He also had four touchdowns.

His best game of his sophomore season came in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints. He had six receptions for 62 yards and a touchdown in a 33-27 loss.
