Don’t be too concerned about Kam Chancellor’s upcoming hip surgery. This is not a Percy Harvin situation, even if Chancellor has surgery.
But Tuesday night, Chancellor sent out a tweet that seemed to indicate surgery wasn’t happening:
Huh? No surgery here. Ready to Win
It’s a bit confusing, but the Seahawks strong safety was expected to have minor hip surgery in the next few weeks, a source told ESPN’s John Clayton Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando.
This is not a new problem. Chancellor talked early last season about how he sympathized with Harvin because Chancellor played through a similar hip issue in 2012.
But Chancellor said his injury was far less severe than Harvin’s torn labrum, which required major surgery in early August and included a four-month recovery before the Seahawks receiver returned. And Harvin still had issues with his hip that kept him out until the playoffs after returning for only one game.
Chancellor’s hip issues returned late in the 2013 season. He did not practice several times during the playoffs, but Chancellor started all 19 games last year.
It isn’t known what the recovery time will be if Chancellor has the surgery, which would be just a clean-up procedure. It’s unlikely to cause him to miss any time since training camp is still four months away.
