Seahawks announce double knee surgery for Lofa Tatupu

Lofa Tatupu was questionable for the final game of the season for the Seattle Seahawks. That had to do with a concussion, not the medical work he had completed today.

The Seahawks announced that their veteran middle linebacker underwent arthroscopic surgery on both knees today, a little more than a week after the team’s season ended. Team doctors Ed Khalfayan and Mike McAdam performed the surgery.

The Seahawks also announced the signing of three players to futures contracts: defensive tackle Jay Alford, safety James Brindley and wide receiver Chris Carter. The team that made more roster moves than any in the league in 2010 is off to a good start in 2011.
