Seahawks linebacker Jordyn Brooks is out several months with a torn ACL in his right knee.
Seattle has a shot at reaching the playoffs if things break right in Week 18, but Brooks’ season ended in the Seahawks’ victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.
The defensive signal-caller on the field for Seattle, Brooks was carted to the locker room. He ranks second in the NFL with 161 tackles.
“That’s a shame, man,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said Monday of the injury.
Brooks went down near the sideline while forcing Jets tight end C.J. Uzomah out of bounds.
Carroll said Monday the Seahawks are not expecting the leg contusion that bothered wide receiver Tyler Lockett in Sunday’s win to be a factor this week.
