Bryant Out A Month For Seahawks

Posted: Updated:
KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) - The Seahawks have announced rookie
defensive tackle Red Bryant is having knee surgery and will miss at
least a month.
The fourth-round draft choice from Texas A&M injured cartilage
in his left knee this week during training camp and is expected to
be out four or five weeks. Seattle drafted the future son-in-law of
legendary Seahawk Jacob Green to back up Brandon Mebane this season
on the defensive line.
The Seahawks have had a number of injuries recently. Starting
defensive tackle Rocky Bernard had surgery for a double hernia.
Fellow starter Marcus Tubbs had knee surgery. Veteran defensive
tackle Larry Tripplett missed Friday morning's practice while
wearing a black sleeve over his right leg. And end Chris Cooper was
also missing from practice.
