WORD OF THE DAY: ACHILLES

Anthony McCoy missed the Seahawks’ Super Bowl-winning 2013 season after tearing his right Achilles tendon during an offseason workout. In Tuesday’s practice, the fifth-year tight end injured his left Achilles.

“The early indication is he hurt his other Achilles,” coach Pete Carroll said after the practice that was televised live by ESPN. “If it is what they think it is it’s just a real heartbreaker. He’s worked so hard to get back.”

McCoy went down during a passing play in the full-team portion of practice, and his body language provided a portent of what might have happened as he stayed down for some time.

“If it was the same Achilles, you might understand it,” Carroll said. “But we think it’s the other one. We’ll see what happens.”

Asked if the injury is serious if it turns out to what the trainers initially thought, Carroll offered, “Yes it is.”

McCoy was expected to join starter Zach Miller and incumbent backup Luke Willson to provide the Seahawks with three versatile, productive options at the position. The other tight ends on the roster are inexperienced – Cooper Helfet, RaShaun Allen and Morrell Presley.

In other injury news, middle linebacker Bobby Wagner (tight hamstring) and left guard James Carpenter (tight calf) started practice but did not finish. But neither injury is considered serious, Carroll indicated.
