Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor is expected to miss the remainder of the season due to a neck injury, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports.
Chancellor suffered the injury during the Seahawks’ win over the Arizona Cardinals last weekend. He sustained a stinger n the victory, resulting in some nerve issues that don’t seem to be improving.
Losing Chancellor would be a big blow to a Seahawks secondary would lost Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman to a torn Achilles last week.
Chancellor — a fifth-round pick (133rd overall) of the Seahawks in 2010 — has 48 tackles, a forced fumble and a safety through nine games this season. The 29-year-old also signed a three-year contract extension with Seattle in August.
Delano Hill, a third-round draft pick out of Michigan, will likely step into the starting lineup for the Seahawks Monday night matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.
