Nine months removed from major knee surgery. Chris Clemons is back and collecting sacks. His teammates have honored the Seahawks’ Leo end by voting Clemons the Ed Block Courage Award.

A recap of the events at Virginia Mason Athletic Center for Nov. 1, when the Seahawks held their last full practice before Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at CenturyLink Field:

WORD OF THE DAY: COURAGE

As in the Ed Block Courage Award, which is presented annually to the player his teammates view as a role model for inspiration, sportsmanship and courage. This year’s winner for the Seahawks is defensive end Chris Clemons, it was announced Friday.

Clemons, who had 33.5 sacks in his first three seasons with the team, had surgery after tearing a knee ligament in the wild-card playoff win over the Washington Redskins on Jan. 6. But he returned after missing the first two games this season and has 3.5 sacks in six games.

“We think highly of the Ed Block Award,” coach Pete Carroll said after practice. “Our players vote for that and they look for a guy who has overcome a lot of obstacles and done it with great attitude and has bounced back and has really been tough.

“Clem has done all of that. Major knee injury. Surgery. Rehab. All that. Remember, it was the second-to-last game of the year, so he had a short time to get back. And he did a fantastic job. And when he’s been back, he’s been active and been part of it. He’s been a big factor.

“He’s very deserving.”
