The Seattle Seahawks are currently dominating in Atlanta, up 24-8 in the third quarter, but they may have lost starting center Justin Britt for the season.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has reported that Seattle fears Britt's knee injury is serious. An MRI on Monday will confirm what is likely to be an injury that keeps him out for an extended period of time.
#Seahawks C Justin Britt, who was ruled out quickly, is feared to have a serious and season-ending knee injury, sources say. He’ll have an MRI to confirm, but Seattle has likely lost its starting center.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 27, 2019
Britt went down on the opening drive of the game as he got bent backward awkwardly during a 1-yard run for Rashaad Penny. Joey Hunt replaced center and is the team's only remaining option at center with Ethan Pocic on Injured Reserve. Britt's injury is a huge blow to the team's offensive line that just got healthy with Duane Brown and D.J. Fluker each returning to the lineup in Week 8.
Luckily for the Seahawks, the trade deadline hasn't passed yet, and Seattle will have a few days to explore the center market around the league.
