Former Tider offensive lineman James Carpenter continues to battle through knee problems:
Carpenter has been unable to participate in the Seahawks offseason workouts for the second year in a row as he recovers from a knee injury that ended his season. Carpenter initially suffered a severe tear of the ACL in his left knee during a practice late in the 2010 season. After returning to play in seven games last year Carpenter again had his season end due to pain in his injured knee. He also missed two games mid-season with concussion symptoms.
Now Carpenter has undergone another surgery to repair his knee. During an interview with Bob Stelton and Dave Grozby Monday on 710 ESPN Seattle, head coach Pete Carroll said that Carpenter underwent an additional arthroscopic surgery on his knee to clean-up remaining issues with the knee.
Actually, I think the first knee injury occurred in 2011 (his rookie season), not 2010 as mentioned above.
Here’s to a full recovery for Carpenter.
