Report: Seahawks rookie TE Colby Parkinson suffers leg injury

Seahawks rookie draft pick Colby Parkinson suffered an unexpected foot fracture while running pass routes earlier this offseason.

The good news is that Parkinson is now rehabbing after undergoing surgery on June 2nd. The bad news is that there is no definite return time for the former Cardinal. The normal recovery time for this type of injury is ten weeks. That would put Parkinson’s return around mid-September. If the season has started by then Parkinson would be a candidate for the PUP list if he’s not activated to the 53-man roster before week1. If he is PUP causality he would be sidelined for at least the first six weeks of the season per NFL rules.

Parkinson was the No. 133 overall pick in the 2020 draft, and a All-Pac-12 second-team selection last season after posting 48 catches for 589 yards and a touchdowns.


The Seahawks signed former Carolina Panther TE Greg Olsen to a one year contract during the offseason. Jacob Hollister and Luke Wilson will also be back to compete. Will Dissly is scheduled to return after a suffering a season ending injury to his achilles heel week six at Cleveland
