Seahawks Chancellor Out For Season

RENTON, Wash. - The Seattle Seahawks will be without strong safety Kam Chancellor for the rest of the season due to a neck injury suffered earlier this month.

Coach Pete Carroll announced the news during his weekly radio show on KIRO-AM on Monday. Chancellor was hurt late in Seattle's victory over Arizona on Nov. 9 while making a tackle. Carroll was unclear about Chancellor returning in the future, saying the decision was up to the safety.

Chancellor has spent his entire career with Seattle, becoming a starter in 2011.

Carroll also announced that defensive end Cliff Avril would be undergoing "disc-related" surgery this week after being out since October also with a neck injury. Carroll did not give specifics and indicated any future return was up to Avril.

Avril is in his fifth season with the Seahawks.
