Seahawks lose Darby for remainder of seasonPosted: Updated:
KIRKLAND, Wash. - The Seattle Seahawks have lost another starter for the remainder of the season.
Coach Mike Holmgren said today that veteran nose tackle Chuck Darby tore the patella tendon in his right knee in last night's loss to the New Orleans Saints and will need surgery to repair it.
Rookie Brandon Mebane will move into Darby's starting spot.
Last Monday, veteran fullback Mack Strong announced his retirement after herniating a disc in his neck the day before in a loss to the Steelers in Pittsburgh.
