Seahawks Right Tackle has Knee Surgery
Breno Giacomini underwent surgery Monday to help an ailing knee.
The arthroscopic procedure was performed Monday morning to remove "loose bodies" from the tackle's sore knee. Giacomini left the Jacksonville game on Sept. 20 when his knee flared up, missed practice last week, and sat out Sunday's win at Houston. Rookie Michael Bowe started in his place, and played the entire game.
Coach Pete Carroll said Monday “He had very good results. He had some stuff in his knee that was causing him some problems that they cleaned up. He could make a very quick recovery on that one.”
“He had loose bodies — did not have a lot of damage other than that,” Carroll added. “So that’s really encouraging, because they clean that stuff out and it’s just like it wasn’t there. So we’ll hopefully get him back quickly.”
The Seahawks have not said when they think Giacomini might return to the line up.
