Seahawks’ Bobby Wagner is out indefinitely after platelet-rich plasma injection
The Seattle Seahawks have seen their famed Legion of Boom get dismantled over the years. Now the last remaining member, Bobby Wagner, will take a seat on the bench for a few weeks. Wagner had platelet-rich plasma injected in his knee, according to Gregg Bell of The News Tribune.
While Wagner will be missing a couple weeks of practice time, this isn’t anything serious. He’s expected to be fully ready for the week one action against the Cincinnati Bengals. This seems to be a fairly common procedure, as Dee Ford of the rival San Francisco 49ers had it done not long ago.
Although sitting because of a procedure usually isn’t a good thing, this could definitely benefit Wagner. He’s going into the eighth year of his career and is famously durable. The former Utah State Aggie has been named to the All-Pro team each of the last three years, so a couple missed practices is no cause for concern.
As long as Wagner is ready for the regular season, the Seattle Seahawks are a dangerous team. Last year was a supposed “rebuilding year,” and the Seahawks snuck into a wild card berth. Seattle’s roster is up and down compared to last year, but the team still expects to be a contender in the competitive NFC West. Russell Wilson and company will have to face the reigning NFC champs twice a year, but a team with Wagner and Wilson should never be counted out.
