CHENEY, Wash. (AP) -- Linebacker Chad Brown, a three-time Pro Bowler, broke his left leg during practice Monday with the Seattle Seahawks.
Coach Mike Holmgren said doctors believe Brown likely will miss the first four games of the regular season. Holmgren said Brown broke the bone after getting his feet tangled with tight-end Itula Mili during a passing drill.
This is not good. Reserve linebacker D.D. Lewis is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, so the 'Hawks are thin on OLBs right now.
Brown has been hampered with injuries since the 2002 season, when he broke his right foot. He missed 2 games in 2003, as well as missing most of the 'Hawks playoff game against the Packers last January.
So it looks like we will see Isaiah Kacyvenski getting a lot of playing time in the first few weeks of the season. Good luck, Kaz.
