Multiple reports say Seahawks DE Greg Scruggs tore his ACL right before the NFL draft. According to 710 ESPN, Scruggs had surgery to reconstruct the ACL in his right knee. He probably won't be ready in time for fall camp and could be done for the season. ACL reconstructive surgery usually takes 6-12 months to rehabilitate. The rookie had two sacks last season.
You can read Scruggs' tweets below. He confirms it happened about 3 weeks ago.
Well, guess the word is out. My most well kept secret for about three weeks now. I love y'all and appreciate the support.— Greg Scruggs (@G_Scruggs) May 10, 2013
One thing is guaranteed that I'm going to bust my butt to get back to full strength and contribute next year. Very disappointing...— Greg Scruggs (@G_Scruggs) May 10, 2013
But I am and will continue to be in good spirits. 12's I promise I'll be back stronger....My guarantee.— Greg Scruggs (@G_Scruggs) May 10, 2013
