Seahawks put TE Ed Dickson back on injured reserve
Earlier this week, the Seattle Seahawks activated tight end Ed Dickson from the injured reserve list, which seemed to come at a perfect time with the Seahawks hurting at that specific position.
But it turns out we aren’t going to be seeing Dickson at all this season.
On Friday, the Seahawks placed Dickson back on injured reserve and activated fellow tight end Tyrone Swoopes from the practice squad, per Darin Gantt of Pro Football Talk.
Dickson suffered a knee injury in training camp that ultimately resulted in surgery. Seattle was hoping to have him back for Week 12, but due to some concern over his recovery, the Seahawks have decided to put him on the shelf.
With Luke Willson’s status up in the air due to a hamstring injury and Will Dissly also on injured reserve, this Dickson news is certainly significant for Seattle — a team starving for production from the tight end position.
Dickson joined the Seahawks in 2018, logging 12 catches for 143 yards and three touchdowns.
The 32-year-old, who played his collegiate football at the University of Oregon, was originally selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the third round (70th pick overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft.
He spent the first four years of his career with the Ravens, with his most productive season coming in 2011 when he caught 54 passes for 528 yards and five scores.
Dickson then linked up with the Carolina Panthers in 2014 and spent four years there. His best season with the Panthers came in 2018, when he snared 30 balls for 427 yards and a touchdown.
The Seahawks are 8-2 on the year and will take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
