The Seahawks’ Chancellor played through injury

On Wednesday, it was reported that Kam Chancellor, strong safety for the Seahawks who pay per head services know is a very important part of the team, had a torn MCL in his left knee while he was playing in the Super Bowl, as well as a deep bruise in the bone.
The player fell down when he suffered a knee hit and was bruised almost at the end of practice a couple of days prior to the Super Bowl.
But Pete Carroll, Seattle coach, said that the player’s tear of his MCL could have been an injury that he sustained in the past.
The safety, who’s a force to reckon with on the field, said that he did not know if he was going to be able feature on Sunday after he fell when the team was holding practice, although he was put on the probable list.
“They told me I wasn’t going to be able to play,” said Chancellor. “They told me torn MCL and bone bruise. I was mad. I was frustrated. But at the end of the day, I was able to play. My teammates came to me. They prayed with me. That’s when it hit me. Why am I mad? I’ve got to be grateful for how I’m feeling right now. There are some people out there worse than me.
“I could have had a broken knee and not been able to play. So I just prayed for health and happiness. I prayed for peace and just to be able to make it to the game and play as much as I could for my teammates.”
In the Super Bowl, the player was able to make 10 tackles – one of them going for a loss – when the team lost to the Patriots 28-24. Seattle didn’t say if he would need to get surgery, but on Monday, Carroll said that it’s possible that the player would have to go under the knife, something that concerns many fans, as they know what a key piece the player is to the Seahawks.
“It’s not a matter of talking about being injured and playing,” said the player. “It’s about being grateful for getting the opportunity to still even play through the injury.”
Even though Seahawks fans are very worried about the player’s condition, pay per head services are confident that he’ll make a swift recovery, and hope that there won’t be any need for him to be operated.
