Super Bowl 2015: Seahawks Kam Chancellor Practice Limited due to Knee Injury
The Seattle Seahawks' strong safety Kam Chancellor sustained a left knee injury during the team's practice on Friday.
Chancellor reportedly fell near the goal line toward the end of practice and was helped up. He was not able to finish the practice. Mike Garafolo with Fox Sports stated that he left practice with a wrapped knee but no limp.
ESPN'S Ed Werder reported that Chancellor will join fellow defensemen, safety Earl Thomas and cornerback Richard Sherman on the 'probable' list. Thomas suffered from a shoulder injury during the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers. Sherman has a hyperextended elbow. Despite these recent injuries, both players have been practicing with the team all week.
All three men should be good to go for the Super Bowl. However, no one will know whether or not these injuries will affect their performance until they play.
Chancellor has had an impressive season, recording 78 combined tackles, one interception, six pass deflections and a forced fumble. Chancellor, Thomas and Sherman have been vital in every step of the Seahawks' journey to the Arizona.
The Seahawks will rely heavily on these three men to perform on Sunday if they want to win back-to-back Super Bowls.
The Seahawks will take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX this Sunday, Feb. 1 at 6:30 p.m. ET. NBC will be airing the game live.
