(Maybe) More Bad News For Hawks Fans: Burleson Out For Season
posted by September 8 at 15:10 PMon
The Seahawks wide receiving corps suffered another blow Monday, with news that Nate Burleson would be out for the season with a torn ACL, Sports Radio 950 KJR-AM in Seattle reported on Monday.
Burleson hurt himself during Sunday’s loss to the Bills, leaving the game early. The injury occured when he tripped himself up while trying to cut back for a pass at the Bills’ 20-year line. After the game, though, he told reporters that he expected to play next Sunday against the 49ers.
I just got a text from a friend telling me this was also on ESPN, but nobody else seems to be reporting it.
If Burleson’s out, the Hawks offense is well and truly fucked until Bobby Engram and Deion Branch are back to form. Seattle’s green, almost-all-rookie receiving corp caught something like four passes on Sunday and it’s evident that the stink of Shaun Alexander is still lingering in the Hawks’ backfield.
Keep your fingers crossed, kids.
Fuck: Danny O’Neil confirms.
