Seattle Seahawks DE Chris Clemons (knee) is confident that he will be ready for the start of the regular season even though he underwent surgery in January to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: Having Clemons from the get-go would be an unexpected bonus for an already stacked Seattle D. Clemons has 33.5 sacks and has not missed a start in 3 seasons with the 'Hawks.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks DE Chris Clemons suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament as well as a torn meniscus in Sunday's Wild Card playoff win over the Washington Redskins and will miss the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: The task against Matt Ryan and the top-seeded Falcons just got that much tougher for the Seahawks, who will be without their sack leader. Seattle might have to gamble with some more blitzes Sunday and approach the defensive game plan with more of a boom-or-bust mentality.

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks DL Chris Clemons will have an MRI on his knee Monday, Jan. 7. He left the NFC Wild Card game against the Washington Redskins, and a league source said there is a fear Clemons might have an ACL injury. Clemons posted a team-leading 11.5 sacks and he started all 16 games this season.
Huddle Up: Losing your team leader in sacks is not how you want to start your week prepping for a divisional-playoff road game against Matt Ryan and the top-seeded Falcons. And that even goes for a team as hot as the Seahawks, who have won 8 of their past 9 games. If Clemons is out, Seattle will have to lean on rookie Bruce Irvin and maybe work a few more blitzes into the mix against the high-powered Falcons.
