  • The latest player to fall victim to the trend is Seahawks rookie Colby Parkinson.

    This news follows 49ers wideouts Deebo Samuel (broken foot) and Richie James (broken wrist) suffering injuries while working out on their own.

  • That's a shame and basically delays his NFL career by a year. Even if he is healthy mid-season he'll have missed everything up to that point and be of limited usefulness. In this sort of situation I'd like to see them err on the side of caution and not try to rush him back too quickly.

  • Wow, the team seems to not be able to catch a break with their young TEs.

    It may take Parkinson a year normally to get it as a Pro TE anyway however.

  • He had surgery on the 2nd and it's a 6-8 week recovery. He should be fine and we're stacked at TE.

    If it's a Jones fracture then that isn't necessarily the case. The whole study is worth reading but there's a very high rate of non-union, particularly on partial fractures.

  • This should give a leg up to my boy, Tyler Mabry. He's more of a all around tight end.

  • This could be a blessing in disguise. We have a lot of veteran TE depth on short term deals. Putting Parkinson on IR would free up the space for one of the young guys behind Dissly, Olsen, and Hollister.

    But he's the best/most promising of the young guys. I don't know that any of those others are even worth rostering a fourth TE.

    We don't actually know if any of that is true. We just know the team placed a higher value on Parkinson than on the other guys.

    My point was that Olsen and Hollister may not be on the roster next year. So one of the young guys going on IR likely increases the odds of keeping more than one of them long term.

  • Well we will see how this progresses, does create a door to be opened for the LSU kid that is going to convert to TE but listed as a WR last time I checked and Josh Gordon.

    Yeah that seemed like an odd post to me too.. He IS one of the young guys you speak of.

  • It is the same injury the 49er suffered both will be fine.
    I'm just worried that there will even be a season.

    Good news is that it's a position we're unusually deep at this year. Might actually help him stick on the roster.

  • Seattle is in good to very good shape at the position. They can easily absorb the loss.

    Also, he's a 4th round pick. And even if he is as good as Dissly was as a 4th rounder (very doubtful), Dissly entered a group with very little depth above him. Basically elevated to #1 TE out of camp. Parkinson would be at best #3.

    In a year where there are no OTAs, and probably truncated TC, and limited preseason games ... rookies are going to have an exceptionally tough time becoming competent players this year.

  • You dont carry 9 TEs when your good to very good at the position. The Hawks fall into the quantity over quality category.

    I believe "durability" is more of a factor of why the Seahawks are choosing quantity here. None of the TEs on the roster are proving to be durable. They are pretty strong with quality if guys like Dissly, Olsen, etc can stay healthy through the season.

    This is the same issue at the running back position too. They are going quantity there too because of durability concerns regarding the players they have.

  • As for Parkinson, this injury will keep him from getting a good running start (on his developmental year), but that might work out to be a good thing for him and us. Have my doubts he would have had much of a chance to be a major factor this year anyway.

  • Well, if he starts the season on PUP, it eases some of the "crowding" in the TE room.

    :Dunno:

    I also think it will give him some time to get a NFL mans body, he is pretty slender.
