In Will Dissly’s case, no news about his left Achilles injury was bad news, with Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll saying on Monday that he suspects the second-year tight end is gone for the season.

“Really unfortunate that we lose Will Dissly, who has been a fantastic part of our team,” Carroll told the media, adding that he had not received any updates about the injury. “Just a young guy, but he’s made a big impression early on all of us, and we’re going to miss the heck out of him as he recovers from an Achilles injury.”

Dissly was running a pass route in the end zone Sunday in the second quarter of Seattle’s come-from-behind win over the host Cleveland Browns when he made a cut and tumbled to the ground, clutching at his leg.

Dissly made no catches on Sunday. He has 23 grabs for the season, amassing 262 yards and a team-high four touchdown receptions.

The Seahawks are 5-1 and trail the first-place San Francisco 49ers (5-0) by a half-game in the NFC West. Seattle plays host to the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

Dissly also sustained a major injury in as a rookie in 2018, tearing his right patellar tendon and playing in only four games. In 10 total NFL games, Dissly has 31 catches for 418 yards and six touchdowns.
