Kerney Now Out For Ailing Seahawks

Posted: Updated:
RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Pro Bowl defensive end Patrick Kerney is
out indefinitely and getting a second look at what's wrong with his
surgically repaired shoulder. It's the latest in an epidemic of
injuries for the teetering Seattle Seahawks.
Coach Mike Holmgren said Friday morning on his radio show that
Kerney is returning to Alabama to see Dr. James Andrews. Andrews is
the surgeon who repaired torn labrum cartilage in Kerney's left
shoulder after last season. The Seahawks' top pass rusher
re-injured the shoulder in last weekend's win at San Francisco.
Holmgren told KIRO he hoped to know when - or if - Kerney can
play again this season by Tuesday. Darryl Tapp and rookie Lawrence
Jackson will start at ends in Sunday's game against Philadelphia.
