Ouch! Seahawks' Clemons Has Torn ACL

Updated:

The famed Seahawks defense took a blow Monday after finding out pass rusher Chris Clemons has a torn ACL.

As reported by ESPN, Clemons will need surgery to repair the torn ligament "and other significant damage".

Clemons led the Seahawks in the sack department, getting to the opposing team's quarterback 11 times this year. He had 37 hurries.

Bruce Irvin, with 23 hurries this year, will have to pick up the load in Clemons' absence.
