Seattle Seahawks 2nd year defensive lineman Greg Scruggs is apparently out for the year after having surgery to repair a torn ACL. The story was originally broken by John Clayton. Scruggs then took to twitter admit that the story was true.
This is a major blow for Scruggs. After working his way into the rotation last season, Scruggs appeared ready to have a breakout season in 2013. Scruggs had been working hard this offseason to add about 14 pounds of muscle and convert to a full time defensive tackle.
I had actually been planning on writing a “don’t sleep on Greg Scruggs” article in the next couple of days. The additions of Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett, Jesse Williams and Jordan Hill to the defensive line have left Scruggs as the forgotten man in discussions about the defensive line, but I think that Scruggs had a very good chance of earning considerable playing time.
I guess none of that matters now. I just hope that Scruggs is able to come back in 2014 as the dominant force that I know he can be.
I hope the rest of the 12th Man will join me in wishing him a speedy recovery. Things just wont be the same this year without his awesome sack dance.
