By all accounts, rookie wide receiver D.K. Metcalf was having a strong summer for the Seahawks. His fall debut might be delayed.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll told reporters Sunday that Metcalf needs surgery on his knee. Carroll didn't offer a definitive timetable for the dynamic athlete's return but said he would likely know more after the procedure, which is planned for Tuesday.

The little person has massive arms for his size.

Stinks for him.

 

Good kid, hard worker; I still think he's limited in what he can do, but there's no doubt he has a ton of potential.

 

I'm sure he'll work himself back to full health as quickly as possible.

Agree and felt the same way about him.  He's way way way too top heavy.  Those leg tendons are over-exercised and carrying more weight (arguably all muscle) than they should be.  Those tendons are also now running routes, precise as possible, and that adds serious stress to them.

They are not saying what type of surgery it is, which is strange. I wonder if it’s pretty serious?

I guarantee he's a lot less top heavy now that he's getting tested.   

 

There's a big window between the end of college football a rookie's first PED test.   Just ask Aaron Maybin.   

You can juice away (assuming you use the right anabolic or hgh).

 

I think Maybins weight loss was around 30lbs when he had to go natural.  Metcalf is probably quite a bit smaller now, might help his chances to stay healthy.

It sounds like he hurt it last week, so I don’t think he was out there. Also Pete said it’s not that serious. Who knows though, he might just be saying that to keep the media at bay.

Yeah, that was a concern for him. Bulk and raw athleticism doesn’t do much without flexibility. If he’s smart, he’ll scale back on the weights and start doing yoga or something to gain flexibility.

Pilates work too.  Considering he's a wide receiver too its kind of important.

He’ll be ready for week one and is having a monster preseason.  

I don't think he's played yet this preseason. Unless you mean training camp.

 

Fake edit: n/m he had 1 catch for 8 yards in the preseason.

Well if he doesn't make it in the NFL, he probably has a career as a Marvel Superhero.

Yeah, he is built like an action figure!

The little people tend to do that.  I have a buddy who's 5'6'' with arms almost as big as my thighs.  

 

The dumbass always skips leg day though so he's not very proportionally built.  Hence his nickname "Chicken Legs".
