Seattle Seahawks tight end Will Dissly’s regular season is over. The Hawks put him on injured reserve with a knee injury.
Dissly had a professional year. He caught 34 passes for 349 yards, both career highs. He also has three touchdown receptions. The former husky also had his highest catch rate at 89.5% of balls thrown at him.
This is the third time Dissly has sustained a season-ending injury. In his rookie season, Dissly tore his patellar tendon. The next season he tore his Achilles tendon.
The move leaves just two tight ends in the active squad, Noah Fant and Colby Parkinson. Seattle could bring Tyler Mabry off the practice team to add depth to the tight-end team.
Seattle promotes cornerback Xavier Crawford from the practice squad to fill Dissly’s spot on the 53-man roster.
The Hawks also lost seventh-round Bo Melton to the Packers. Green Bay signed him to Seattle’s practice team.
Seattle also added safety Steven Parker to its practice squad.
