Seahawks’ starting tight end suffers injury again

Seahawks tight end Will Dissly, whose 2018 season ended after four games when he tore his right patellar tendon, was seriously hurt again, suffering an Achilles injury in Seattle’s 32-28 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Dissly, who went down untouched in the second quarter, had been a reliable target for Russell Wilson during the Seahawks’ first five games, with 23 receptions for 262 yards and four touchdowns. He did not record a catch on Sunday.

“It’s serious. It’s a big loss,” coach Pete Carroll said. “He’s been playing great football. It’s a really devastating injury for him.”

Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield was escorted to the locker room with a hip injury but returned to the game. Cleveland defensive tackle Daniel Ekuale sustained a head injury in the closing minutes.

Peters returned briefly after getting hurt in the second quarter before leaving for good. Linebacker Nigel Bradham didn’t return after hurting an ankle in the second quarter. The Vikings’ left tackle, Riley Reiff, was also hurt, suffering an ankle injury.

Jaguars cornerback D.J. Hayden left in the fourth and was evaluated for a concussion.

Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick was carted off the field in the first quarter and did not return as Cincinnati remained winless with a loss to the Ravens. Guard John Miller left in the second quarter with a groin injury and did not return.
