Following Sunday night's preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks head mentor Pete Carroll affirmed during his postgame question and answer session that tenderfoot wide recipient DK Metcalf was booked to experience minor knee medical procedure on Tuesday.

While he didn't indicate the idea of the methodology, Carroll appeared to be certain Metcalf could return by the beginning of the customary season.

"Disillusioned for him, since he is set for a phenomenal begin," Carroll said. "Be that as it may, I don't think this will crash him for long. Be that as it may, he has to complete some work."

General director John Schneider declared without further ado before the opening shot Sunday that Metcalf would pass in the group's subsequent preseason game.

"He has a sore leg," Schneider said on the Seahawks radio communicate. "We're going to look at that and be mindful of him, and play it step by step and perceive how it goes."

Carroll said there was good faith that Metcalf could be prepared for Week 1. Metcalf was with the group in Minneapolis however did not have against the Vikings subsequent to taking impact in the majority of the practices that were available to the media this previous week; Friday's training was shut.

Freshman second-round pick Marquise Blair, who is competing for a beginning employment, left the game with what Carroll said were back fits.

"He had back fits in the subsequent half," Carroll said. "So I don't have the foggiest idea what that implies, however he had a play and his back got tight, and it continued getting more tightly and he couldn't return."

Paxton Lynch, who is contending with Geno Smith to be Russell Wilson's reinforcement, likewise left the game in the wake of taking a cap to-protective cap hit from cornerback Holton Hill, who was launched out.

"He experienced the [concussion] convention, he's still in there now," Carroll said. "He had a feeling that he was OK, however he's still got the chance to finish those tests, so we'll perceive all the procedure and deal with that."

Reinforcement monitor Demetrius Knox, an undrafted new kid on the block, endured what Carroll called a "terrible" quad damage.

Metcalf, whom the Seahawks picked with the last pick of the second round in the wake of exchanging up to No. 64, has been the most amazing of their 11-part draft class. He rapidly got on during the offseason program and has kept on standing out during preparing camp while consistently working with the No. 1 offense.

On the off chance that Metcalf is inaccessible for Seattle's Sept. 9 customary season opener against the Bengals, Jaron Brown and David Moore would be the in all probability possibility to begin close by No. 1 collector Tyler Lockett.

The Seahawks are as of now without guarded end L.J. Collier, their first-round pick, due to a sprained lower leg that could keep him sidelined for the remainder of the preseason, if not longer. That implies Seattle's best three picks this year - Collier, Blair and Metcalf - are for the most part managing wounds.

Lynch supplanted Wilson (6 of 9, 82 yards) on Seattle's third belonging Sunday. He was 6 of 15 for 67 yards and a close block attempt while playing behind a temperamental hostile line before Hill's hit sent him to the sideline. J.T. Barrett took over for the last four minutes and went 0 for 3 with a capture attempt.

Seattle marked Barrett a week ago with Smith recuperating from Aug. 9 medical procedure to expel a pimple in his knee. Smith did not play Sunday.
