Seahawks' Stanback goes down with torn Achilles’

Published on August 8, 2010 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Isaiah Stanback took one painful step then screamed.

He knew instantly.

He was consoled by Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, and then was carted back to the locker room for further examination.

Hours later, the former University of Washington quarterback’s fears were confirmed: The Seahawks announced late Saturday that Stanback tore his left Achilles’ tendon, ending his attempt to make the roster of his hometown team.

Stanback, 25, suffered the injury while coming out of his stance during individual drills early in the team’s second practice of the day.

A playmaking quarterback for the Huskies, where he finished with 4,662 total yards and 33 touchdowns, Stanback was a fourth-round selection by Dallas in the 2007 draft. He spent two seasons with the Cowboys before they let him go in final roster cuts last September.

New England signed Stanback to its practice squad two days later, and he played six games for the Patriots before he was released in March.

Seattle claimed Stanback off waivers in June.

In three years in the NFL, Stanback played 16 games, starting two. He caught five passes for 46 yards. The Garfield High of Seattle product also averaged 22.7 yards on 14 kick returns.

At 6-foot-2 and 208 pounds, Stanback was a big receiver who offered some versatility with his ability to return kicks and also handle quarterback duties in an emergency. He appeared to be getting acclimated to his new team, and was one of 10 receivers competing for a spot on the team’s 53-man roster.

He is likely to land on the season-long injured-reserve list.
